Different types of water heaters in the market.
- The conventional storage tanks are the most common types of water heaters out there. These heaters contain insulated tanks where the water is heated and stored until it’s needed. These neutral gas water heaters come at lower prices than the electric heaters but it’s more difficult to install. Moreover, you have to clean it at least twice a year. These heaters last 10 to 12 years and if it lasts more than 12 years, it’ll be considered as good fortune.
- The Heat Pump water heaters soak heat from the air or the ground and use that heat to hear water. This will cost a little more than the electric heaters, but you will get the returns on your electric bills. These heaters don’t work on cold places. And as the heat pump is on top, a hybrid unit may be needed with at least a 7 ft ground clearance between the floor and the ceiling.
- The Solar heater is another form of heater that use the sun’s heat to transfer it in an antifreeze fluid in a closed loop that runs the water tank and heat the water up. These heaters and the relevant gears are costly to buy and install and can mean waiting 10 to 30 years to recover investment. Although solar panels and equipment are becoming less costly now.
