Water Heater Installation, Service and Repair

Storage Hot Water Systems are the most common

These hot water heaters have cylindrical tank that keeps water continually hot and ready for use. They are most commonly powered by electricity, natural gas, propane, heating oil, or solar energy.

Advantage: Use energy at a relatively slow rate, storing the heat for later use.

How to choose the right Storage Water Heater for your home

Several factors should be considered when choosing the right storage water heater:

Hot water tank size-80 gallon, 40 gallon, or smaller

Obviously, the size of the storage tank needed depends on the size of your home and the number of members in your household. In general, larger tanks tend to provide hot water with less temperature fluctuation at moderate flow rates.

Storage tank insulation

In general, more insulation is better because it reduces standby heat loss which cut down on energy use. Modern water heaters have PUF (Polyurethane Foam) insulation and Tanks are available with insulation ratings ranging from R-6 to R-24.

It may be possible to add an extra insulation g blanket or jacket on the outside of a poorly insulated tank to reduce heat loss. The most common type of water heater blanket is fiberglass insulation with a vinyl film on the outside.

High efficiency condensing units

Another factor to consider is how efficiently your hot water heater system can convert energy in fuel to heating water. High efficiency condensing units can convert up to 98% of the energy in fuel to heating water.

Residential combustion water heaters

The vapors from flammable liquids and gasses near a hot water heater run the risk of catching fire and exploding. Residential combustion water heater run the risk of catching fie and exploding. Residential combustion water heater manufactured since 2003 in the United States have been redesigned to resist ignition of flammable vapors and incorporate a thermal cutoff switch.
