Water Heaters - Selecting the right water heater can be tricky. What kind of fuel do you use? How important is efficiency? How is the water heater used? On average, a typical family of four will use 2,000 gallons of hot water each month, and if you're using a water heater that's old or in need or repair or replacement, you could be throwing money down the drain every month in wasted energy costs.
Standard water heaters are the most common type of water heaters found in the United States. They work by heating up water in a storage tank, either with gas or electricity, and it is stored until the water is needed. By a common measure, standard water heaters are the least efficient of the various water heater types in the market because they need to continuously vent flue gases, which means heat is escaping.
Condensing water heaters look alike to standard water heaters, but they are far more energy-efficient. It's because the condensing water heaters recapture the hot vent gases and reuses that energy to keep the water hot. Condensing hot water heaters are swiftly taking over the top spot as the most common hot water heater in residential homes.
Tankless water heaters are also growing in popularity and in a lot of cases can be ideal replacements for traditional hot water heaters. Here's how they work: instead of storing hot water in a reservoir tank that constantly uses energy to maintain temperature, tankless water heaters provide hot water on an as needed basis. They are not perfect for all homes or HVAC systems, but for the right circumstances, tankless water heaters are fantastic for some Northbrook homeowners.
