3 Water Heaters to Consider for Installation in Your Home

There is no way in which to overstate the importance of having a dependable, effective and efficient water heater installed in one’s home. Not only does your water heater provide you with the hot water that you need in order to shower comfortably in the morning, but it is also your water heater which provides you with hot water for use in your dishwasher, laundry machine and from every hot water faucet in your home. If you are considering your options for a new water heater in Fresno, CA, read the following information carefully. Also, remember to schedule all of your water heater services with the professional technicians here at Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning.

Tanked

The tank water heater is an old standby, but don’t let that you fool you into thinking that these great systems are in any way outdated. Not only do tank water heaters retain heat better than ever before, thanks to better insulation in their tanks, but they also burn fuel and use electricity much more efficiently as well. These systems are ideal for homeowners looking to keep a reservoir of hot water ready for use at all times, especially in situations when simultaneous usage is common.

Tankless

You don’t need to use a tank to maintain a supply of hot water ready to go, of course. You can instead choose to use a tankless water heater in your home. These compact devices heat only the water that you need, as you need it, making them incredibly efficient while also taking up very little space in the home. They are definitely more expensive initially than tank water heaters, but homeowners thinking in the long term can expect to earn back that investment over time, thanks to the potential energy savings.

Solar

If you really want to talk about efficiency when it comes to heating water for use in your home, you need look no further than the solar water heater. Using the power of the sun to heat water is a perfectly natural and logical way to do so, when you think about it. Just remember that the equipment necessary for harnessing the requisite solar energy must be expertly installed and serviced. That’s where we come in, so give us a call to get started.
