Storage Tank Water Heaters

A storage tank water heater is a ready reservoir of about 20 to 80 gallons of water. These are the most commonly used water heaters and have an insulated tank where water is heated and stored for consumption. When you choose to get your water heater installation done, you will also have to choose between a natural gas water heater and an electric water heater. The former uses less energy and is cheaper to operate but are quite costly when you initially purchase them. They are also not as easy to install when compared to electric water heaters. These water tanks must be drained regularly and cleaned out to remove sediments if you want them to have a longer lifespan. They can work efficiently for 10 years after which you will be getting a bonus if they work beyond 12 years. If you live anywhere in Salt Lake City, give us a call at Your Plumber Salt Lake City and we will visit your home for an inspection and installation of a water heater.

Tankless or Instantaneous Water Heaters

Also known as on demand water heaters for obvious reasons, these heaters do not store water but use extreme flashes of heat against coils filled with water for heating. They heat the water on demand and are very energy efficient but also quite expensive during the hot water heater installation process. They are ideal for people with a large family and in need of a continuous flow of hot water on demand. They are best used with natural gas because the electric models might require an upgrade the electrical capacity of the home and this might be costly. Tankless water heaters might also need a larger diameter gas line fitted and this can be an expensive accessory. If you opt for an electric tankless water heater, you might have to go through an expensive upgrade of your electrical capacity. With the tankless model, you have to remove deposits of scale once every year to keep the appliance functioning consistently. Your Plumber Salt Lake City is trained and experienced in the installation of all brand of water heater and all plumbing services.

Heat Pump Water Heaters

Heat pump water heaters, also known as hybrid water heaters, operate by capturing heat from the air or ground, which is then transferred to the water. Should you choose to get this type of water heater installation, you will get the advantage of a 60 percent less energy consumption as compared to standard electric water heaters. These water heaters are far more expensive than the standard electric models but will save you a lot more because of their low energy consumption. In spaces that are too cold, heat pump heaters don’t function optimally, and since the heat pump is on top, the heater might require as much as seven foot clearance from the floor to the ceiling. From selection to installation to service, Your Plumber Salt Lake City is your source for all types of water heaters.

Solar Water Heaters

These water heaters are mounted on the roof and absorb the sun’s energy and then transfer it to antifreeze like fluid in a closed loop system running to the tank to heat water. Ideally, they are very good for considerable savings in the summer although during cold and cloudy seasons, savings will take a significant dip. Most models are backed up with an electricity or gas unit. Despite that, solar water heaters are still too pricey and most people don’t consider them an option when getting their hot water heater installation. At Your Plumber Salt Lake City, we look forward to providing you with quality and professional water heater installation services.

Condensing Water Heaters

If you want a water heater installation that will use gas and have a capacity of over 55 gallons of water, you can opt for condensing water heaters. Their tanks are similar to those of conventional water heaters but they use exhaust gases that go out to the flue and get them working to heat water in the tank. The exhaust gases get blown using a coil at the base of the unit. Incoming cold water then absorbs heat causing these appliances to be highly efficient. At Your Plumber Salt Lake City we are specialists in the installation, service and repair of all water heaters.
