Turning on the shower and expecting it to steam up and get hot is one of life’s great comforts. A hot, steamy shower or bath is a great way to start your morning or decompress after a stressful day or hard work out session. However, if you jump into a shower or bath expecting it to be nice and hot only to find that your water is running cold – that is quite an unpleasant experience.
A water heater is an appliance that heats water so that it provides hot water throughout all the rooms in your home or business. Water heaters are different in sizes and will need to be chosen depending on how many rooms there are to heat and how many people will require the supply of hot water. A three-bedroom home for three family members will need a different size water heater than a three-bedroom home for six family members. The same is true for a large home; a six-bedroom home for four family members will require a slightly different sized water heater for the same household with six or seven family members. The general idea is that everyone should have access to hot water when they need or want it.
A broken water heater will keep people from enjoying a hot shower, hot bath, or the ability to run the dishwasher at a hot temperature. A broken water heater can also significantly increase your home’s energy costs. Your water heater is designed to heat water, but if it is not working correctly, it is using a great deal of energy to try to do its job unsuccessfully.
Choosing the best and most efficient water heater for your home is essential. At Quality Propane, we professionally install and service propane water heaters and tankless water heaters into homes and offices. A propane water heater is an excellent choice because it is safer, more environmentally friendly, and more efficient than most other types of water heaters. Tankless water heaters are also a good choice because they source an endless supply of hot water to a home. Tankless water heaters are ideal for big families that have a larger number of people who take showers or baths every day.
When choosing a water heater, you will need to consider your budget and the requirements that need to be met through the system. While tankless water heaters are in high demand right now, they are not right for every property. Tankless water heaters are much more expensive than traditional water heaters. The installation cost is higher because it requires more work to install them, and the units themselves are about twice the price of a traditional water heater. It is also important to know how “hard” your water is. Hard water is hard on every type of water heater, but it is especially rough on tankless units. Mineral buildup, lime, and scale pose problems to tankless units, and these issues are not covered by the unit’s manufacturer’s warranty.
Traditional water heaters require space for the unit. Traditional water heaters require a large cylinder tank that is usually located in the basement, kitchen, or garage. These systems hold a certain amount of hot water that is already heated and ready to go. However, you must choose the right size water heater! If you use all the water in a tank too quickly, everyone who is left in turn for a shower or bath will have cold water to contend with.
