Types of Water Heaters

There are three different types of water heaters that Brooklyn residents can choose to have in their home. The benefits offered by these designs can vary widely as each uses different heating processes and heating elements to produce hot water. As a result, the issues experienced by each type of water heater varies, as do the ways that we treat each unit when making repairs.

Indirect Water Heaters

These are a more efficient choice for many houses. Indirect water heaters us the main boiler or furnace to heat a fluid that is then circulated through the storage tank’s heat exchanger. We typically recommend these the most, and are one of the few plumbing companies in Brooklyn that specializes in indirect water heaters. We install the main manufacturers of indirect water heaters, including HTP In-directs and Burnham Alliance water heaters.

Traditional Water Heaters

Traditional water heaters feature a large storage tank that holds warm water until you’re ready to use it. Various capacities are available to ensure that there is an option that can keep up with your family’s needs.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heater designs heat water as needed using a heat exchanger. There is no storage tank, so they take up less space in your home, and they are designed to save energy and money.

Water Heater FAQ

What do I need to consider before buying a water heater?

The most important factors to consider before buying a water heater are the heat source, the type of heater and the capacity. You will need to decide whether you want an electric or gas heater and if you prefer a tank-style or tankless model. You’ll also need to choose a model with the correct capacity for your home.

What are the benefits of a tankless water heater?

Tankless water heaters have several benefits. The main benefit is that they are much more energy efficient than traditional tank-style water heaters because they only heat water as it is needed. This leads to lower energy costs. In addition, there isn’t a limit to the amount of hot water that is available with a tankless water heater, while the amount of hot water available when using a traditional water heater is limited to the size of the tank.

Are there any tankless water heater disadvantages?

Tankless water heaters come with higher upfront costs than traditional tank-style water heaters. In addition, tankless water heaters often do not provide adequate hot water for simultaneous use throughout the home.

Is it better to repair my water heater or replace it?

Sometimes repairing your water heater is a better option than replacing it. If your water heater is less than 10 years old and is in overall good condition, repairing it may be your most cost effective solution. If you are experiencing problems with an older water heater, though, you might want to consider replacing it with a newer, more energy efficient model.

How do I maintain my water heater?

A little water heater maintenance can go a long way toward keeping your water heater running as long as possible. Vital components, such as pilot lights and anodes, should be repaired or replaced on a regular basis to keep water heaters in top running order. Once a year, you should also flush your water heater to remove any rust or sediment build up.

Why should I leave water heater repair or installation to the professionals?

Working on or installing a water heater is not a do-it-yourself project. In addition to voiding the heater’s warranty, tackling water heater projects yourself could be a recipe for disaster. Saving a few dollars by installing a water heater yourself isn’t worth the risk to your and your family’s safety.
