Types of Water Heaters
At Roth, we offer a wide selection of electric and gas water heaters to fit your budget and the needs of your home. There are 3 main types of water heaters on the market—conventional water heaters, hybrid water heaters, and tankless water heaters.
Conventional Water Heaters
Conventional water heaters include a storage tank and are powered by natural gas or electricity. They are the most common type of water heater.
Hybrid Water Heaters
Hybrid water heaters run on electricity but include a gas-powered unit as backup. Like conventional water heaters, they use a storage tank, but they can be as much as 30% more efficient.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are increasing in popularity, as they do not require a storage tank to run. They can use either gas or electricity and are the most energy-efficient water heater option.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters have no tank and no need to keep the fuel source on until there’s a demand for use. One of the biggest benefits of tankless water heaters is that they can produce endless hot water.
On average, they can heat 2-5 gallons of water per minute. To put it simply, these units sit completely off, not consuming any fuel until there is a need. There are many options available, from 2-gallon buffer tanks to recirculation pumps, and more.
When buying a tankless water heater, the most important thing to consider is its gallons per minute (GPM) capabilities. Higher GPMs will let you use more plumbing fixtures at the same time.
Lower GPMs will allow you to use one or two hot water fixtures at the same time. If more are used, there will be no hot water at all. Generally, the more GPMs the tankless heater is capable of, the higher the price.
