Water heater installation is an essential step in enhancing efficiency in your home, and as such, you are required to make the best decision in choosing the best heater for you as well as overseeing the installation process. I’m going to discuss the various types of water heaters you can choose from as well as how they are installed in this article.
There are various types of water heaters available from the market today, and they are as follows:
A storage tank heater
This heater works by storing water in a tank for heating first and is the most common in homes. Installation of this heater involves connecting the heaters on the wall, below a window and to specific circuits that are off the peak. This process is usually by a qualified electrician at a fee of about $50 per heater.
Tankless water heaters
These, unlike the first type, do not feature tanks but are rather heated coils that heat water as it passes through them. This heater is small in size and can be installed in any space that is convenient for you, like under the sink or closets. The heater must stay protected from any contact with water or dust and other particles.
Hybrid water heater
It collects heat from the air and the ground to heat water. It is best installed in a dry indoor area, with no contact with walls or any items, and most importantly, warm temperatures.
Solar powered heater
It draws energy from the sun, perfect for hot climates and if you already have solar panels installed. Once you have intact solar collectors on the roof, have the storage tank installed near the conventional heater, and then the piping and controls are put in place for use.
