Heating water is the second-largest source of energy use in the home. While we all enjoy a soothing hot shower, there are rising energy costs—along with their adverse environmental impact—make it a good time to take a closer look at the many options now available.
Storage: The most common hot water system used in homes. Water is kept constantly heated in the storage tank by electricity, natural gas, oil, or propane. Hot water is drawn out of the top of the tank when a faucet is turned on and cold water flows in the bottom to replace it.
Tankless: Also known as on demand water heaters. Water is heated by electricity or gas when the water flows through it without the need for a tank.
Solar: Water is circulated from the tank through a solar collector where it is heated by the sun. If the water in the tank is not hot enough, a conventional water heater is used to bring it up to the desired temperature.

Tankless Hot Water Heaters
These water heaters are considered more energy efficient than storage tanks, but cost more upfront to buy and install. Gasless, tankless water heaters often require a larger gas line and modifications to the vent pipe while the large, tankless electric models may draw more current than the house is designed to handle.
Small, single use electric units are less expensive and can be mounted under a sink. They come in handy if you have a half bath or kitchen sink located away from the main hot water heater. Be sure to check the recommended flow rate on tankless water heaters to see if it’s enough to meet your needs. While they won’t run out of hot water like traditional storage tanks, multiple users can exceed the flow rate and cause the water temperature to drop.
To find out how long it would take an energy efficient system to earn back its added expense, divide the additional cost of the energy efficient system by the yearly savings in energy. The answer is the number of years it would take the energy efficient system to pay for itself.
