Water Heaters - Selecting the most appropriate water heater isn’t always an easy decision. On average, a family of four will use 2,000 gallons of hot water each month. If you’re using a water heater that’s outdated or needs repair or replacement, you could be wasting money every month in unnecessary energy costs.
Standard water heaters are the most common kind of water heaters in the United States. They operate through a procedure which includes heating up water in a storage tank, either with gas or electricity, and storing it until the water is required. By a general measure, standard water heaters are the most inefficient of the many water heater types available since they need to continuously vent flue gases, which mean heat is being let out, and wasted.
Condensing water heaters appear to be very similar to standard water heaters. However, when it comes to energy efficiency, they are a lot better. That’s because the condensing water heaters reuses the hot vent gases and recycles the energy to keep the water hot. Condensing hot water heaters are quickly taking over as the most common hot water heater in residential homes. Consider one for your Forest Lake home.
Tankless water heaters are also increasing in popularity and in many instances can be exceptional replacements for traditional hot water heaters. Instead of storing hot water in a reservoir tank that continually uses energy to preserve its temperature, tankless water heaters are able to offer hot water on an as needed basis. They are not ideal for all types of homes or HVAC systems, but for the right systems, tankless water heaters are an excellent choice for many Forest Lake homes.
