Like most homeowners, you probably don’t think about your water heater all that much. As long as you get a hot shower in the morning and can wash your dishes, your water heater remains an unsung hero. Wake up in the morning to ice cold water, however, and suddenly it’s the most important appliance in your home! When your water heater fails to perform, call Mediterranean Heating and Air. Do you just need repairs or a new water heater? Either way, we’re the experts that can help!
CHOOSING THE RIGHT WATER HEATER
If you’re looking for a new water heating unit, there are three basic types to choose from. Whichever is right for you, Mediterranean Heating and Air has the trained professionals who can help you decide which will best fits your needs.
TANK WATER HEATERS – The most common option for water heaters, storage tank models preserve a reservoir of heated water at all times. This means that you can enjoy near instant delivery of hot water throughout your home. It also means that this reservoir must be continually heated, though, as standby heat loss occurs.
TANKLESS WATER HEATERS – Tankless water heaters do not maintain a reservoir of heated water, but rather heat water on demand as it is called for. Cold water passes through the device and is heated on its way. This makes them remarkably efficient. However, you may not get instantaneous hot water as with a tank model, and they may be overwhelmed if multiple points of use are activated simultaneously.
HEAT PUMP WATER HEATERS – Many homeowners have made the switch to heat pumps for heating and cooling their homes. A heat pump water heater uses electricity to transfer heat from one place to another. Using ambient heat, a heat pump water heater can conserve energy by eliminating the need to generate new heat.
Your Mediterranean Heating and Air technician can help you analyze your hot water needs, explain the pross and conss of each system, and help you make an informed decision on which water heater to select.
