The storage tank water heater is intended to heat and store water—ready to use—in a tank. Tanks are available with water-storage capacities ranging from 20 to 80 gallons, but the normal household in Kitchener usually does well with a 40- or 50-gallon tank. When the dishwasher, washing machine or shower is working, preheated water is pulled from the top of the tank and flows promptly to the point of use. The water heater then pulls cold water into the bottom of tank and heats it so more hot water is prepared when needed.
Storage tank water heaters are attractive because they typically have an inexpensive initial purchase and installation price than other water heaters. However, a few people are fearful that a storage tank water heater won’t be as energy efficient as they’d wish for. While it’s true that tankless water heaters are the champions of energy efficiency, a tank water heater can still be efficient.
According to energystar.gov, many ENERGY STAR certified models have better insulation, heat traps and more efficient burners—which can mean an 8 percent reduction in energy use. No matter what your hot-water needs are, you’ll be able to choose from multiple sizes of storage tank water heaters with the help of the professionals at Hammond Plumbing. Each is covered by a great warranty and installation backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Call Hammond Plumbing today for ENERGY STAR®-rated, anything-but-traditional tank water heaters.
