Understanding Different Types of Water Heaters
Most people think of water heaters as the traditional tank model and indeed, you can still find them in many Stamford, CT homes. But they’re not the only models out there: tankless water heaters, heat pump water heaters, and indirect water heaters are also available. When it comes to hot water in your home, you’ll want to make certain that you choose wisely. No matter what kind of system you have in your home, hiring a professional to install and service it is critical to making sure that your hot water flows consistently at all times during the year.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
Heat pumps are usually designed to warm your air in the winter and cool it in the summer, but the same principles can be applied to your water heater as well. Heat pump water heaters allow you to enjoy the same hot water than more traditional models do, but use much less energy.
Indirect Water Heater
Most water heaters apply heat from the burners more or less directly to the water they intend to warm. But an indirect water heater installed by T&H Mechanical Systems takes a more circuitous route: heating up a fluid which passes through the water tank in a tube and transfers the heat into the water. As a result, the burners don’t need to run as often and you can pocket the different in monthly savings!
Tank Water Heater
When most people think of water heaters, they think of traditional tank models, which use burners beneath a large white cylindrical tank to heat water as you need it. They’re popular because they do their job well, but repairs can sneak up on you, and regular maintenance from T&H Mechanical Systems is necessary to keep them running as they should.
Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters make a great alternative to traditional tanked models. Instead of heating a large reservoir of water, they heat it as it passes through the pipes on the way to your faucet via a series of coils. They’re smaller than tank models and don’t run the risk of running out of hot water, though they usually benefit smaller homes rather than larger ones.
