Choosing the right water heater for your Eugene OR home can be tough decision, given all the different models that are designed to provide better efficiency and a constant supply of hot water. Regardless of the model you choose, always hire a professional to install a new water heater. Because of the advanced technology used to run high-efficiency equipment, only a certified technician should make any repairs to the unit as well.
The expert technicians at Comfort Flow are trained to install, repair and maintain water heaters throughout the service area. Call today if you would like to know more about how to choose the right water heater. Here is a comparison of the two main types to get you started.
Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters save energy by heating the water directly as it goes to the application, such as a dishwasher or shower. This saves energy because there’s no need to keep an entire tank of water heated at all times. In addition, tankless models can work with your existing heating system to save even more energy during the winter.
Before installing a tankless water heater for you, your technician will need to make sure you get the right size for your home and water heating needs. You can also install individual units that are matched for a specific application that uses a lot of hot water, such as a washing machine, so that your main tankless unit will be more effective. Our professional technicians can help you select the right model and size to match your hot water usage needs.
Tank Water Heaters
Even though tank water heaters may not be as efficient as tankless, there have been many improvements in technology in recent years that have improved their efficiency. Finding the proper size and type will depend on several variables, including flow rate calculations for all the hot water applications in the home. Our technicians are trained to help you make these calculations and determine the right size for your home.
