This option has been the standard solution for electric & gas water heaters and is the first choice for those on a budget. The water tank is kept at the desired temperature at all times, so you are paying for hot water even when you may not be using it. Conventional hot water tanks also have a volume limit and thus a waiting period to reheat once stores are used. While it gets the job done at the best price, it is the lowest in energy efficiency, providing $0.93 worth of water for every $1 spent to heat the system. The average cost per year to run is $491 annually. While you pay less up front, it will cost you more than other systems in the long run.
If you have a high or even low hot water demand and are conscience of utility costs, then a tankless system is the answer. Rather than a tank, tap water is run through a heat exchanger ‘on demand’ and heats when and as you need it. Because of this, it requires much less space than the standard hot water tank. Tankless systems can be up to 34% more energy efficient than traditional water heating systems, helping you save on utility costs resulting in less wasted water and lower CO2 emissions. Choosing to go tankless, your systems can last up to twice as long as a standard water tank.
This hybrid heat-pump technology uses the same air-to-air energy exchange you’re used to in your home to provide residential hot water. This hybrid water system is the highest in energy efficiency and qualifies for all available applicable tax credits & energy rebates. Each $1 spent in energy will yield on average of $4 of hot water. After the applying rebates, the hybrid system costs slightly more than a standard water heater but save in utility costs of on average of over $350 per year. Additionally, the heat-pump provides added benefits of dehumidification, improving health and comfort. The hybrid hot water system also comes with a 10-year warranty. This hot water-dehumidifier combo is the most cost & energy efficient, saving you money for years to come.
