As a modern homeowner, you rightfully expect a certain level of comfort and convenience in your home. A major player in ensuring that this expectation is met is your water heater. If you are not able to heat water effectively, reliably and efficiently in your home, after all, a number of routine tasks, including washing the dishes, doing the laundry, and even showering, can become problematic. Should you find yourself in the market for a new water heater, we advise you to consider all of your options carefully before deciding upon your new system of choice. We install and service a great selection of makes and models, including solar water heaters in Fresno, CA. Speak with a member of the Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning staff today to learn more.
Tank Water Heaters
Many of us grew up with tank water heaters, and it is not fluke that these systems have remained as popular as they are for as long as they have. Tank water heaters, of course, store heated water in a storage tank to be used as needed. While this helps to ensure that you always have a reservoir of hot water ready for use, you should also keep in mind that even the most efficient storage tanks will experience some standby energy loss, meaning that heat from the water can transfer through the tanks walls and insulation to the air surrounding it.
Tankless Water Heaters
A tankless water heater completely eliminates the risk of standby energy loss, as such models do not use a storage tank at all! Instead, only the water that you need, as you need it, is heated. This on-demand water heating method makes the tankless water heater quite efficient. However, these systems are also much more expensive to purchase than tank models, typically.
Solar Water Heaters
Whether going green in your home or just looking to cut down on water heating costs, the solar water heater is a worthy option to consider. We install and service quality water heating systems of both passive and active design. If you have any questions regarding the benefits or process of using the power of the sun in order to heat water for use throughout your home, just give us a call.
