Hot Water Heaters

Hot Water Heaters are exactly what there names imply, heaters that heat the water used throughout your home. There are three common factors to determine how to choose a hot water heater: the size of your family or number of occupants, the utility availability in your town and the space available for your water heater.

Hot water heaters come in a variety of types, but the main type used in the US is the stoarge system type. These units have an insulated tank where water is heated and stored until it is needed. They are available in electric, liquid propane (LP) and natural gas models. Natural gas and propane water heaters normally use less energy and are less expensive to operate than electric models of the same size.

Hot water heaters that are more than 10 years old stand a good chance of being inefficient, and at the very least require maintenance. With most hot water heaters, it is best to inspect the unit at least once a year. Regular scheduled inspections on a hot water heater can be extremely effective at maintaining full operation and avoiding unnecessary replacement. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” can be a dangerous philosophy when it comes to hot water heaters.
