What Type of Water Heater Will Save Me the Most Money?

Monday, April 23rd, 2018
  • water-heater-modelQ: What type of water heater should I get to have the best money savings?
  • A: The right type of water heater.

We know that answer sounds like we’re being flippant, but it is the correct answer. There is no single type of water heater that is a guaranteed money-saver for a house because every household is different. A tankless water heater with a high efficiency rating may sound like a sure thing for cutting down on energy bills, but it might end up doing a bad job at actually delivering the hot water the household needs end have to be replaced early. That’s hardly saving money!

  • Q: So how do I find the right type of water heater?
  • A: Work with a professional plumber.

Thankfully, the answer to this question is straightforward. A new water heater installation must be handled by a plumbing professional, so you might as well involve the professionals from the start to select the ideal new water heater for your needs. A water heater must first be able to handle the hot water demands of your household, or else it’s not much good. Professionals can size the system (determining volume of hot water, flow rate, etc.) so your household will rarely run out of hot water or experience a drop in efficiency because of hot water demand. The pro plumbers then look for models that will cut down on your heating costs, but also make sure the model won’t be prohibitively expensive.

Why Consider a Heat Pump Water Heater?

gold-faucetThe standard water heater that most people think of is a tank water heater, also known as a storage water heater, which keeps a supply of water in a large tank. The water is maintained at a high temperature so that it’s ready for use when a tap turns on somewhere in the building. There are other models of water heater available, such as the tankless water heater, which has become popular in the U.S. over the last decade. A tankless water heater heats up water as it is needed rather than storing it.

There’s a third water heater alternative: the heat pump water heater. It’s not as well-known as the other two, but it offers some excellent advantages to homeowners. It’s worth considering if you’re looking to have a water heater installation in Pomona, CA or elsewhere in Southern California.
