Types of Water Heaters

Electric Water Heaters: This refers to the heating mechanism itself, not a specific style of water heater.

Tankless Water Heaters: A tankless system does not store any water, but produces it on demand. These are good for homes with a low demand for hot water.

Conventional Storage Tank Water Heaters: One of the most common water heater types, this unit holds a specific amount of water, keeping it continually hot.

Heat Pump Water Heaters: Powered by electricity, heat pump water heaters are two to three times more efficient than a conventional electric water heater.

Solar Powered Water Heaters: This type relies on roof panels that collect solar power and convert it to electricity. This unit requires a backup power source of some kind, so the unit can continue to work consistently in bad weather.

Condensing Water Heaters: If your home already uses natural gas, this unit is incredibly efficient. It harvests unused gas fumes from your stove or furnace.
