Four Basic Types of Water Heaters
Tank-less Water Heater
If you want your hot water to never run out, the tank-less water heater may be the best choice for you. This option will provide you with an unlimited supply of hot water for your entire shower-taking, faucet running and laundry day needs. On top of that, it's also the most energy efficient system on the market.
Natural Gas Tank Type Water Heater
Most homes in Waukesha County and the lake country area have a natural gas tank type water heater. These water heaters are common because they are a cost-effective and reliable way to heat the water your family requires. Natural Gas heaters are preferred over electric heaters because of the 40% quicker regeneration rate.
Electric Tank Type Water Heater
Most electric water heaters are installed because either natural gas isn't available or there is some other limitation in the home that would prevent the use of natural gas water heating. In either circumstance, electric makes a reasonable alternative to natural gas
Solar Water Heater
Solar water heaters can be a great way to go green while effectively heating the water that you use on a daily basis. By using the sun's energy to heat the water in your home, you can reduce your hot water energy bill by up to 90%!
