What Is a Water Heater & Why Is It Necessary?

Water heaters are common appliances in most homes. Often found in basements or laundry rooms, water heaters come in tank or tankless forms and supply you with hot water 24/7.

The most widely used design boasts a large, insulated storage tank that holds between 30 and 80 gallons of heated water. The heated water is funneled through pipes to where you need it in your home for your showering, bathing, dishwashing, and laundry needs.

What Are the Different Kinds of Water Heaters?

Options for water heaters include:

  • Traditional (heated by natural gas, liquid propane, oil, or electricity)
  • Tankless
  • Solar-powered
  • Electric heat pump and hybrid
  • Condensing
  • Commercial

The American companies holding the largest market share in the water heater manufacturing industry include A.O. Smith Corporation, Rheem Manufacturing Company, and Bradford White Corporation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Heaters

How do I know that I need a new water heater?

Signs to watch out for include the age of your unit (10-12 years for traditional systems), if you’re not getting a reliable supply of hot water, if your water is showing discoloration (from sediment or rust), and if you have any leaks around the water heater tank.

How do tankless water heaters work differently than regular water heaters?

A traditional water heater has a tank with 30-80 gallons of hot water. The tank keeps this water at the temperature you have set on the tank (around 120 degrees). As the tank empties from use, it refills with cold water, and you must wait for it to reheat.

A tankless water heater has no storage tank. Water is heated on-demand, supplying you with constant hot water. Since it doesn’t have to keep the tank of water hot and ready for use all the time, it uses much less energy and less space.

What can I do to make my water heater last longer?

Take care of your investment by committing to routine care and maintenance. Annual tune-ups are suggested to extend the life span of your water heater.
