Water Heaters

Storage Tank Water Heaters:

All American Plumbing installs all types of water heaters on the market today. A variety of fuel options are available for conventional storage water heaters electricity, natural gas, oil, and propane. Ranging in size from 20 to 80 gallons, storage water heaters remain the most popular type for residential heating needs in the United States. A storage heater operates by releasing hot water from the top of the tank when the hot water tap is turned on. To replace that hot water, cold water enters the bottom of the tank, ensuring that the tank is always full.

Because the water is constantly heated in the tank, energy can be wasted even when no faucet is on. This is called standby heat loss. Newer, more energy efficient storage models can significantly reduce the amount of standby heat loss, making them much less expensive to operate. To determine the most energy efficient model, consult the Energy Guide label required on storage water heaters. Energy Guide labels indicate either the annual estimated cost of operating the system or energy efficiency ratings.


On Demand or Tankless Water Heaters:


All American Plumbing can help you completely eliminate the standby heat losses from your water heater and reduce your energy consumption 20 to 40 percent by installing a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters are much more energy effecient and they never run out of hot water. 
Typically, on demand heaters provide hot water at a rate of 2 to 4 gallons per minute. To meet hot water demand when multiple faucets are being used throughout the home, tankless water heaters can be installed in parallel sequence.

As with any purchase, balance the pros and cons of the different water heaters in light of your particular needs. There are a number of  factors you should consider when choosing a new water heater for your home. You should consider the water heaters capacity, total hot water demand, energy efficiency, and total cost of the materials and installation.
