Tankless Water Heaters:
Tankless water heaters deliver on-demand hot water quickly while only heating water when in use, which can reduce energy costs. Their smaller size also saves on space compared to traditional water heaters and can be installed on various surfaces. Gas, propane, and electric options are available with warranties as long as 15 years.
Direct Water Heater:
Direct water heaters are the most common type of water heater. ENERGY STAR® rated, these water heaters provide homeowners even more of what they want most out of their water heater; plenty of water when they need it and reduced energy costs while protecting the environment. Ranging from 25-to 80-gallons and beyond, these water heaters are available in gas, propane, electric, and oil. These can be power vented, chimney vented, or use a hybrid electric heat pump.
In-direct Water Heaters:
In-Direct water heaters use energy generated by your boiler to generate hot water. One of the smartest ways to heat water, these water heaters are typically installed in homes with an integrated HVAC system in order to take advantage of heat transfer. The tank itself does not use fuel, so the heater does not need venting.
In-direct water heaters provide abundant hot water using the same boiler that heats your home. Typically, available in sizes ranging from 26- to 79-gallons and beyond, these water heaters provide a higher recovery rate than conventional direct water heaters.
