Need Assistance with Your Hot Water Tank?
Hot water heaters are essential in modern-day homes for making water hot quickly and efficiently. There are a few different types to choose from depending on what suits your needs and home best. Probably the most commonly seen in homes today, a storage water heater has a large tank that holds water until it’s needed. It can be powered by electricity or gas depending on your preference and whether or not a gas line is available at your home. Heat pumps are operated by pulling heat from the air around the machine into the water tank. This will definitely lower your energy bill but often takes a lot longer to heat water. It’s not recommended unless you live in a climate where the air is usually warm enough to use as a heat source. Solar water heaters work in a similar fashion, except they use power from the sun to heat the water in a storage tank.
Tankless Water Heaters Need Service Too!
Tankless water heaters are growing in popularity because they fit in much smaller spaces and are less of an eye sore compared to the tanks that most people are used to. Either using natural gas or electricity, a heat exchanger immediately heats water on demand rather than keeping a constant supply of hot water in a tank. This gives an unlimited amount of hot water, efficient energy and cost savings, and lower maintenance costs over time. However, they are often much more expensive to install in homes and can’t be used in every type of home. Navien has a great selection of water heaters, including tankless models, that you can choose from. The NPE-2 and NPN Series will serve your needs and keep your bills low!
