Benefits of Choosing a Conventional Water Heater Installation
Though tankless water heaters are gaining popularity, conventional water heaters are the most prevalent hot water heater in homes and businesses today. Also called storage water heaters, the conventional water heater stores water in a tank, usually somewhere between 20 and 80 gallons. Fuel sources vary but may include gas, electric, or propane. The benefits of choosing a conventional water heater include:
- No fans or pumps to burn out
- Low upfront costs
- Reliable over decades of use
- Easy installation
- Less power/gas requirements
- Utilizes solar power if necessary
While tankless water heaters are known to conserve energy, just because you use a conventional water heater doesn’t mean you have to settle for inefficiency. Many newer models have thicker insulation, motorized dampers to reduce heat loss, and an Energy Factory of at least .67, making it an affordable and energy-efficient option.
