Before you have a water heater installed, it is important to pick the type of water heater you want. There are three main types to choose from: conventional, tankless, and hybrid.
Most people are familiar with conventional water heaters. These products use a tank to store hot water. The price of a conventional water heater, and the fees associated with its installation, are much less than for the other two types. You will, however, need enough space for the storage tank.
Tankless water heaters do not have a storage tank. Instead, they contain an electric or gas heating element that heats the cold water. Tankless water heaters are more efficient, which means they are better for the environment and your utility bills. Installation of tankless water heaters is more expensive.
Hybrid water heaters are electric. They use electricity to move heat to water. They are different than both conventional and tankless water heaters because they do not heat the water directly. Hybrid water heaters are the most expensive, but also the most energy-efficient.
The installation process for your water heater will depend on its type. For conventional water heaters, the new heating element and storage tank will need to be attached. Tankless water heaters require some type of exhaust piping. Hybrid water heaters will need the electrical components to be connected appropriately. All water heaters will need to be correctly attached to your home’s water lines as well.
Although, not a hard process for a professional, installing water heaters can be tricky for a novice. It is best to leave the process to an expert.
