Choosing the Right Water Heater
If your traditional tank water heater is approaching the end of its useful lifespan—about 8 to 12 years—it might be time to consider replacing it. The same is true if your water heater has been giving you trouble and the issues cannot be repaired or are more costly to repair than the expense of a new water heater. New, modern water heaters are designed to save you money by offering improved energy efficiency and longer lifespans.
Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a new water heater:
- Type: If your home would benefit from a tankless water heater, this could be a great option. Tankless water heaters are typically smaller and more efficient than their traditional counterparts. They also offer instantaneous hot water. However, if you use a lot of hot water on a daily basis, a traditional tank-based unit might be better suited for your needs. If you are a business owner, you’ll want to take a look at commercial water heater options.
- Fuel Source: Whether you choose a standard water heater or a high-efficiency model, you will have several fuel options, including gas, electric, or solar. While solar is by far the most energy efficient, it is also the most expensive to install. Traditional gas-fueled water heaters are generally the most popular—and one of the most affordable to operate. However, they do typically cost more upfront than electric models.
- Size: This is perhaps one of the most crucial things to keep in mind when choosing a new water heater. No matter the type, a water heater that is too small will not meet your needs and one that is too large will waste energy—and money. You’ll want to consider the size of your home or business, the amount of hot water you and your family or employees use, and choose a new water heater accordingly.
- Costs: Cost is obviously a big concern for most people choosing a new water heater. You’ll want to take into account both the upfront costs (the price of the unit itself, as well as installation costs) and the overall cost to run the new water heater. Energy-efficient models may cost a bit more upfront, but can save you a great deal of money in the long run, especially if you tend to use a lot of hot water on a daily or monthly basis.
