What Are My Choices In Hot Water Heater Systems?
Conventional Hot Water Heater
Conventional hot water heaters remain the most practical solution in the heating of your water. A conventional hot water heater operates by releasing hot water from the top of the tank when you turn on the hot water side of your faucet.
A residential hot water heater may store from 20-80 gallons of hot water.
There are many fuel sources of hot water heaters such as natural gas, propane, and electrical. Natural gas and propane water heaters basically operate the same, however some gas hot water heaters require different venting systems.
For more information about electrical and gas hot water heater systems, call our Master Plumber at 24-7 Plumbing.
Tankless Hot Water Heaters
Tankless hot water heaters are heating devices that are activated by the flow of water; they provide hot water only as needed.
Tankless hot water heaters heat the water directly. When you turn on the hot water side of your faucet, the tankless water heater delivers a constant supply of hot water. However, a tankless water heater’s output limits the flow rate.
Typically, tankless water heaters provide hot water at a rate of 2-5 gallons per minute, and gas-tankless models have a higher hot water output than electric models.
Tankless water heaters may be installed centrally or at the point of use, depending on the amount of hot water used in your home.
Recommendations for Tankless Hot Water Heaters
If you already have natural gas in your home, 24-7 Plumbing recommends a natural gas tankless water heater.
The savings of an electrical tankless water heater in larger homes will not start showing for at least 4-5 years…possibly more. Tankless electrical water heaters are best recommended for small residential properties with less people using hot water. If you are considering an electrical tankless water heater, please remember, your electrical will need to meet the amps of the tankless water heater. This means you will have to upgrade the electrical in your home, which in turn means you will need to hire an electrical contractor. Additionally, electrical tankless hot water heaters in a large home will need a heat circulator pump, which will reach the furthest bathroom in your home.

Heat Pump Hot Water Heaters
Heat pump water heaters extract heat from the air and deliver it to the water. Heat pumps can work either as a stand-alone water heating system or combination water heating.
Heat pump water heaters use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly. They can be two to three times more energy efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters.
Heat pump water heaters pull heat from the surrounding air and dump it at a higher temperature into a tank to heat water. Heat pumps can also be retrofitted to work with existing electrical and gas hot water heater systems.
Note: Heat pump water heaters will not operate efficiently in cold spaces; they must be installed in spaces with excess heat, such as a garage or attic.
Heat pump systems combine heating, cooling, and water heating. Combination systems pull their heat indoors from the outdoor air in the winter and from the indoor air in the summer. Because they remove heat from the air, any type of air-source heat pump system works more efficiently here, in Florida.
