Before you purchase a water heater, make sure you consult us at Savannah Thompson & Thompson to see if you’re making the right choice for the size of your home and the hot water needs you have. There are a few types of hot water heaters to choose from, let’s have a look.
Conventional storage water heaters are still the most popular type of water heating system for your home. Storage water heaters work by releasing hot water from the top of the tank. Cold water then enters the bottom of the tank, ensuring that the tank is always full. A residential water heater can store anything from 20 to 80 gallons of hot water. A commercial storage water heater can store anything from 20 to hundreds of gallons.
Tankless hot water heaters are gaining popularity in Savannah. Tankless water heaters are being installed all over the world because they take up a fraction of the space a conventional boiler does. Tankless water heaters heat your water as it flows through the device only, there is no tank. We can install and maintain them at Savannah Thompson & Thompson.
Solar power heaters have come down in price and increased in efficiency in the past few years and are a viable alternative or adjunct to your existing system. Solar water heaters use the energy from the sun to provide hot water. Direct circulation systems work the best in our Savannah climate. Ask us about this exciting technology and if it’s right for your home.
