Electric Water Heaters
How Electric Water Heaters Work:
Electric water heaters are the most popular choice for home water heating. They store hot water in a tank ranging from 20 to 80 gallons. When you turn on the hot water tap, hot water is released from the top of the tank, and cold water enters from the bottom to keep the tank full. However, standby heat loss can occur, wasting energy even when not in use. Tankless water heaters, like demand-type or tankless coil water heaters, avoid standby heat loss. Consider heat pump or solar water heaters for lower operating costs.
Selecting a Electric Water Heater:
The cheapest unit may cost more in the long run due to increased energy expenses. Oversized units also have higher standby energy losses. Factors to consider before purchasing include size, first hour rating, fuel type, availability, energy efficiency, and costs.
Electric Hot Water Heater Installation and Maintenance:
Proper installation and maintenance optimize energy efficiency. It’s best to hire a qualified plumbing and heating contractor who understands local building codes and safety regulations. Obtain written cost estimates, check references, and ensure compliance with local requirements. Consult the manufacturer’s instructions if installing it yourself. Perform routine maintenance, such as flushing the tank, checking the valve, and inspecting the anode rod, as outlined in the owner’s manual.
