TAMPA, FL, January 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- There are several different types of water heaters available on the market today and the Tampa plumbers at Pampering Plumber understand that choosing one can be difficult as each has its benefits and detriments.
Aspects to Consider
The three main factors you must look at before you purchase a water heater are what fuel it uses, the type of water storage it offers and whether it serves the whole house or just a single point of use. As very few homes are looking for a water heater that won't serve the entire house, the last factor is of less concern than the first two.
Pampering Plumber's licensed plumbers in Tampa know that your water heater fuel choice is typically going to be pre-chosen for you. Your home will either come with a gas system or an electric system. If you have a choice, electric models generally cost less upfront, are easy to maintain and do not need venting. However, if your home is gas, don't fret: gas units cost less to operate over time and tank-style units are not affected by power outages, so water stays warm.
Water storage is the other factor this Tampa plumbing service wants you to consider before you purchase a new water heater. Conventionally, tanked heaters are able to store between 20 to 80 gallons of water that is constantly heated to your desired temperature. These units are cheaper to initially purchase and they are easily stored in any out-of-the-way location.
Tankless water heaters heat as you use them, reducing energy consumption by not heating water that is just sitting in a tank. They can reduce your energy consumption by up to 30 percent, but they require ventilation and can run out of hot water during heavy use.
