The water heater of a home is one of its most important components. It uses more energy than any other appliance, since, unlike the air conditioner or the central heating system, it needs to operate every day people are home. When you are in the situation of purchasing a new water heater, you want to make the best choice possible—because hopefully you’ll be living with this same system for more than a decade to come.
Today, you have more options for a water heater than before. The standard storage tank water heater is still around. But you may also wish to consider installing a tankless water heater—or a hybrid water heater.
