Hot water heaters can utilize different fuel sources such as natural gas, propane, or even electricity, depending on your location and needs.

Conventional Storage Tank Water Heaters

Conventional Storage Tank Water Heaters are the most common. They have an insulated tank that stores the heated water until needed. These types of water heaters can utilize any fuel source. Storage tank water heaters come in different capacities, depending on your needs. If you have a large family, or if you are taking hot showers simultaneously, you might want to consider a larger tank so you never run out of hot water.

Tankless On-Demand Water Heaters

Tankless On-Demand Water Heaters heat the water quickly when it is needed. These models are more energy-efficient, but they are also more expensive. Depending on the model, they can provide continuous hot water for several hot showers at the same time!
