A new water heater is a big investment, and one that you and your family will rely on for years. There are many options to choose from, and they all have different costs and efficiency levels. That’s why it’s important to know the different types of hot water heaters that are available when purchasing one for your home.
Conventional hot water heaters are the most popular type of water heaters, and operate by storing hot water in a tank and releasing it as needed. These often have the lowest upfront costs.
Demand water heaters heat water directly when it passes through a heating element, which eliminates heat loss usually experienced with storage tanks. They usually have much lower operating costs than conventional water heaters.

Heat pump water heaters operate by using electricity to move already generated heat from one place to another. This makes them highly efficient, so while they have higher initial costs than conventional water heaters, this is offset by their very low operating costs.
Indirect water heaters operate by diverting water from your boiler to a heat exchanger and then into your faucets. Even though they require a storage tank, they are the most efficient type of water heater since the stored energy allows the furnace to turn off and on less often.
