Hot Water Systems

Beolow are the most popular choices when it comes to heating your potable hot water:

1) Conventional Electric Tank:

Electrical: Consists of 2 elements, 2 thermostats (1 upper and 1 lower). Lower 50% of heater remains heated at all times. When demand for additional hot water is required, the upper element kicks in.
*It is estimated that 30% of your power bill is used to heat water in this manner.



2) Conventional Gas Tank: Natural or propane gas tank type heaters keep the entire tank hot at all times.

3) Tankless (Electrical):

We do not recommend these heaters, as we have found them to be very problematic.

4) Tankless (Gas):

Natural gas or propane unlike antiquated tank type water heaters that heat and reheat the same water 24 hours a day. Tankless water heater technology is more efficient. Only heating water when required. It also allows for continual use never running out.

*We like to use Rinnai Tankless Heaters.

6) Electric Heat Pump

Electric heat-pump water heaters use a heat pump to pull heat and humidity from the surrounding air and put it into the water heater. Ideally installed in the garage. Visit http://www.rheem.com/products/water_heating/tank/hybrid for more information.

7) Hybrid Hot Water Heater

Hybrid, or heat-pump water heaters use a heat pump to pull heat and humidity from the surrounding air and put it into the water heater. Please call us for more information.
