Water heater units have become part of the major home appliances or tools that you rely on constantly. Your home’s hot water heater makes sure that you can have all of the hot water that you need. When you wash dishes, take cozy baths, and do your laundry, the water heater makes things easier. The great thing about a hot water heater is that there’s nothing for you to do when it works well. You simply turn on your faucet, and the hot water comes out, ready for you to use. Once you have a broken hot water heater, however, you’ll need to rely on a plumber in Burnaby, BC, and nearby areas from Red Seal Drainage & Plumbing to perform the water heater repair that fits your specific model.
Traditional and Tankless Water Heater
When people are in the market for a new water heater, they’re usually choosing between a tankless model and a traditional model.
A traditional model has an insulated tank that stores up to 50 gallons of water, keeping it heated at all times. This means that whenever someone in your home wants to take a bath or use the dishwasher, the heated water will be there waiting and ready to go. Once the tank is empty, it refills itself and heats up the water so that it’s ready for use. Traditional heaters are less expensive to install than tankless models, making them a good option for people who need to focus on low startup costs. They use more energy than other water heater models, resulting in higher utility bills They take up more space than other types of heaters, making them a challenge to install in small spaces. Traditional water heaters have relatively short life spans of 10 to 15 years, which could mean you may need to look for longer-term solutions.
Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand heaters, are those that use an electric or gas heat source to heat the water as needed. They have higher initial installation costs than traditional models, a possible deterrent for people who are on strict budgets. They heat water on demand, meaning that you should never have a situation where you run out. Tankless water heaters last a long time, often as long as 20 years or longer, making them a great option for people who are looking for long-term water heater options.
