aaplumbingsc (1)Water heaters are one of the most common appliances that people generally don’t like to think or worry about.

Water heaters are also one of the most common appliances that no one really knows anything about until it breaks.  Storage tank water heaters are the most common type of water heaters.  Storage water heaters are the large, familiar white tanks that heat water with natural gas or electricity and hold that heated water until it’s requested.  They are designated by the amount of water they hold, in gallons and you’ll need to choose the right size based on the number of people you have in the household.  The most popular water heaters are those by Rheem.

Tankless water heaters, also called instantaneous, continuous flow, inline, flash, on-demand or instant-on water heaters, are also available and gaining in popularity.  Tankless models need electrical outlets for their fan and electronics, upgraded gas pipes, and a new ventilation system.  Tankless water heaters have a minimum flow rate that is required to turn them on.  They are far more energy efficient than tank-style, due to the fact that energy is used only when water is needed.  Tankless water heaters do not contain a storage tank like conventional water heaters.  They come in a variety of sizes for different applications and are available in propane (LP), natural gas, or electric models.  Tankless gas water heaters generally require a vent for the combustion heat and gases.  Rheem tank and tankless water heaters are innovative, energy efficient water heating, that are the most reliable solution for today’s homes.
