Water Heater Options
The first thing you’ll have to decide when looking at hot water heaters is what type of fuel source you want yours to use. Most water heaters are designed to work with electricity, gas or oil. So you need to know about the availability of these in your area as well as the relative cost of each in order to make an informed decision.
You’ll also need to decide whether you want a traditional tank water heater or a tankless model. Tankless water heaters are a relatively new entrant into the market, but they work quite well for most homeowners. Unlike traditional water heaters that keep a tankful of hot water ready for whenever you need it, tankless water heaters only heat the water when you turn on the tap.
