Water Heater & On Demand Hot water
Every home and place of business uses water daily. After a long day at work, everyone wants to go home and take a relaxing bath or refreshing shower in hot water. Water heaters, either tankless water heaters or tank storage heaters are what is needed to enjoy a hot bath or shower. These heaters also provide hot water for us to do household cleaning, dishes, laundry, and much more! Contact Breakthrough Plumbing & Heating Ltd and find out about our different types of water heaters.
On-demand water heater
The on-demand water heater is also known as a tankless water heater. The on-demand water heater is tankless, which means that it only provides hot water as it is needed, so there is no thank where water is stored and kept heated. On-demand water heaters also save you money because they do not produce standby energy which is a loss. A tankless water heater instantaneously heats water when it is needed; so a hot water faucet is turned on, cold water flows through the heat exchanger unit in the heater, and either an electric element or natural gas heats the water. This results in the tankless water heater being able to deliver a constant supply of hot water when you need it.
Water heater with a tank
A water heater can also have a tank, where water is stored and kept warm. A water heater with a tank is also known as a conventional water heater, and they are the most widely used in homes. A water heater with a tank is available in different sizes, which allows you to find the perfect size for your home. Water heaters with tanks are powered by gas, oil, or electricity. They transport heat from a coil to the water that is inside a tank. A water heater uses electricity even when there is no water being used, this means
The advantages and disadvantages of both types of heater
Each type of water heater comes with advantages and disadvantages that you will need to be aware of before deciding on the best choice for your home and family. A water heater that stores water uses more electricity because it keeps the water hot, whereas an on-demand water heater only heats water as it is needed. Conventional heater's start-up costs are less than an on-demand heater, but in the long run, the on-demand water heater will save you money. A conventional water heater means that you will have more hot water at once, and the on-demand water heater has less water at a time.
