Before you make the hasty choice of upgrading your old heater, make sure that the entire plumbing system is in tip-top shape. Faucets with low flow and toilets that save water can help you save more energy through helping you to save water. You heat your water with little energy if you don’t use as much and the faucets with little flow can reduce the amount of water you use.
Gallons per minute or GPMs are used to measure the flow rate for all the plumbing units in your home. It’s important that you determine the demands for hot water for you to know what’s the right size water heater for your home. Doing such calculations will also guide you to know which applications have a high GPMs. When you fix faucets and fixtures that have a low GPM you will save water. When you do an overhaul of the entire system you will have a water heater that works efficiently and operates at optimum level.
Tankless Water Heaters
Most home owners prefer tankless water heaters over traditional heaters because tankless water heaters give hot water just as soon as you need it and the way it is designed to save space. Heaters that give hot water on demand are easier to maintain, efficient and reliable.
If you have already decided that you will install a water heater, make that call to one of our professional plumbers to help you find the correct size. A small tankless model of a water heater can be put in as a single unit near the place that needs most hot water such as at the shower or washing machine. The same way of doing things cannot work if you own a huge home or a small or medium sized business. In such cases, tankless water heaters would not be able to supply sufficient hot water to all the applications that are running at the same time – applications such as the washing machine and dishwasher functioning at the same time. Alternatively, you can install a bigger tankless model in a single location in such a way that it can heat water for a whole office or household. We are more than happy to send a qualified plumber to your home or business premise and they will determine how much water is needed.
Hybrid Water Heaters
These are said to be the most efficient in the current market. This is so mainly because of how they function. Their system comprises of a heat pump that sucks in the air that is within the home. The heat is then pressurized and then used to heat up the refrigerant. The result of that action is that water in the stored tank gets heated up. There are many types of hybrid water heater models available in the market today. Most of these models have adjustable energy level settings and thermostats that are programmed. These features help in lowering electricity costs when there’s little use for how water.
