Water heaters are a common household staple used to heat water for various purposes such as washing dishes, taking showers, and doing laundry.
The most common types of water heaters found in American homes today are storage tank water heaters, tankless water heaters, and heat pump water heaters.
Storage tank water heaters are the most traditional type and consist of a large tank that stores hot water and keeps it at a constant temperature.
Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, heat water on demand and do not have a storage tank. (Tankless vs Traditional Water Heater)
Heat pump water heaters use electricity to move heat from the air or ground to heat water.
The type of water heater that is best for a home depends on factors such as the size of the household, the location of the home, and the cost of electricity or natural gas. Additionally, many states in the US have implemented regulations to increase energy efficiency for water heaters, which can help homeowners save money on their utility bills.
