Storage Tank Water Heater
The most common design in water heaters, a majority of homes in the Houston area feature this design. This style of water heater’s popularity stems from its capabilities to reliably supply hot water throughout the house.
Water is heated and stored inside a large insulated tank, having the capability to ensure supply for multiple showers and appliances at once. Busier people with families gravitate towards this model because of its multitasking characteristics.
This style is generally more energy efficient, relying on its storage capabilities to cut down on the amount of fuel burned to heat the water.
Storage tank water heaters can be heated with natural gas, liquified propane, and electric.
Tankless Water Heater
A great option for smaller homes and individuals who do not require multiple hot water uses. These units lack any storage tank and the water must be heated through the pipes as it is demanded.
Extremely energy efficient, there is never heat being lost because none of the water is ever being stored. Not ideal for homes where multiple showers run at once or appliances like a dishwasher and washing machine are used simultaneously.
Tankless water heaters can be heated with natural gas, liquefied propane, and electric.
Heat Pump Water Heater (Hybrid)
The latest innovation in water heating, these state of the art appliances are energy efficient and large enough for any household. They work by drawing in hot air, whether from inside the house or outside, and exchanging it with cold air, heating water inside a storage tank. Running on minimal amounts of electricity, some models draw as much power as a toaster. These models are very popular in Europe, attesting to their sophistication.
Heat pump water heaters do require a large open space to operate, common places for installation is inside the garage or basement. Hybrid models have a backup heat source, usually natural gas or propane, ensuring no gap in hot water service.
