Looking for different types of water heaters to see what could work for your home? There are more options than you may think. As you begin your research, you should remember to keep a few things in mind. How many people do you live with? How much water do you and your family consume a day? How much is your energy bill? These are all questions you want to think about when making your selection. That’s because there are systems available now which can help cut down on your energy usage, saving you money every month. Remember to look for the best system for your needs as you are searching through different types of water heaters.
Water Heater Options
There are several options available to take into consideration. Here are some of the best options available to Cincinnati homeowners today:
- Tankless Water Heaters: A tankless heater is energy efficient as it will only heat water when needed. It requires less room than traditional models and can hang on the wall. When you turn your faucet on, a tankless water heater will supply hot water on an as-needed basis, and can keep up with the demands of most households rather easily.
- Solar Water Heaters: Solar systems are gaining popularity, especially in areas that see harsh weather during the winter like we do here in Cincinnati. The idea is simple, solar radiation absorbed by affordable panels will keep your water heated.
- Conventional Water Heater: There’s nothing wrong with going a little old-school. However, that doesn’t mean there haven't been several upgrades made on the conventional options. It can be hooked up to your electric system or gas lines, and you have options for what size of tank you would like. You should expect to get around 10 years of use out of it.
- Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heater: The hybrid system uses heat from the air to warm water. It combines this extraction with electricity but can reduce your energy usage by 60%.

Have A Licensed Plumber Install Your New Water Heater
As tempting as it may be to save money and try to do it yourself, installing a water heater should always be done by a licensed plumber. This is even more important if you get the tankless, solar, or hybrid options, as they are more complicated to install than the conventional system. Installation is affordable and getting the job done right will save you money in the long run.
