Water heaters are common household fixtures in many homes. But having a water heater installed in a home is a big decision to make and there are several factors to consider before it can be installed. The first factor would be size. If it is too small it might not be able to supply the hot water needs of the household sufficiently. On the other hand, a water heater that is too big for what is needed will create a large energy bill, plus it will be a waste of energy. Another factor to consider is whether to have water heaters with tanks installed or go with the tankless water heater.

Two types of water heaters
Rooter-Man can install a traditional water heater or a tankless water in your home.
- Conventional water heaters
A conventional or traditional water heater normally looks like a big metal vat and is located in a basement or laundry room. It is equipped with a heating mechanism either inside the vat or at the bottom. A conventional water heater makes use of the heat rising principle to supply a home with hot water with very little fuss. The secret to a conventional water heater’s ability to separate cold incoming water from the heated outgoing water is the theory that heat rises above denser cold water. The heating mechanism of a conventional water heater is either an electrical motor or a gas propelled mechanism located at the bottom of the vat or tank.
- Tankless water heaters
Tankless water heaters are also called instant water heaters and the reason why they are becoming more popular with home owners is because they are energy savers and offer convenience. Conventional water heaters have tanks filled with water that are constantly heated by the heating mechanism to maintain its hot temperature and ensure that there is always hot water available when you open a faucet. Tankless water heaters on the other hand, heat water with a set of coils that become hot when the unit is switched on. The water heats up as it passes through the coil. There is a temperature control that determines the temperature of the water that flows out a tap or faucet. They are energy savers since they only heat the right amount of water needed and only when it is needed.
