Water Heater Replacements
What Kind of Water Heater Should You Install?
The type of water heater you go with is up to you, of course, but the best type of water heater will depend on your needs. There are five types of water heaters: tankless, conventional, heat pump, and solar powered.
Conventional Water Heaters
Conventional water heaters store your home’s hot water in large tanks. The large tanks help to keep your water warm until it’s actually time for you to use it.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
Heat pump water heaters use heat from the air and the ground to heat the water. These water heaters use electricity to move heat from the ground to the water.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters, as the name suggests, do not have a tank. They bring water up and heat it at the moment that you need it via very hot coils. Since these water heaters don’t have a tank for storage, you want to be sure to get the right size, otherwise the water heater will not be able to keep up with your water usage and you’ll end up with a cold shower.
Solar Powered Water Heaters
Lastly, solar powered water heaters rely on the sun for their main source of energy. In order to power solar powered water heaters, it is vital to have solar panels properly installed onto your roof. Solar panels help to easily harness the energy from the sun and lower your overall energy costs while increasing energy efficiency.
Signs You Need to Replace Your Water Heater
Here are some of the most common reasons you may need a water heater replacement:
Freezing showers aren’t the only sign that your water heater is failing. Indeed, if you turn on the hot water and it comes out cold, you may have a problem with the water heater- but other signs include:
Water that grows cold at random points and then goes back to being hot
Water that smells of rotten eggs or sulfur when it heats up
Water pressure problems, or leakage around the water heater (this is the most serious sign and could indicate an imminent failure).
If you notice any of these signs, call the plumbing experts at Stack Heating, Cooling, & Electric and let us come out and take a look.
If You Do Need a Replacement….
If you need a water heater replacement, you can either replace it with the same type as you had previously or you can get a different type. This choice will depend on your preference and your energy usage. Switching to a different type of water heater, such as a solar powered water heater, can save you money on energy bills and potentially provide you with more hot water than your previous water heater did. There are four main types of water heaters: conventional, tankless, solar powered, and heat pump.
