Traditional Water Heaters
Traditional water heaters preheat and store water in a tank that can be powered by either electricity or gas. Electric water heaters function by using two electric elements, while gas water heaters are fueled by heating oil, natural gas, or propane. Unlike air conditioning and heating systems, the size of your traditional water heater should be based on peak water demand and the number of occupants in your home, not by the size of your home. The peak hour demand or first-hour rating (FHR) is the measure of how much hot water the water heater will produce in an hour.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are a popular, energy-saving alternative to traditional water heaters. If you’re looking to save vero beach tankless water heater repair space, tankless water heaters are the perfect option since they are absent of an actual tank. Instead of storing hot water in a tank, tankless water heaters only heat water on an “as-needed” basis. This saves energy by eliminating stand-by heat loss. In fact, some tankless water heaters claim up to 40% in energy savings.
