Houston Conventional Water Heater Repair and Installation
Choosing the right water heater for your home is of utmost importance. Each home differs in size, number of residents, and the amount of water used daily, which means that each home has different needs when it comes to the ideal type and size of water heater for the space.
An improperly sized water heater could leave your family without enough hot water to complete necessary daily chores and tasks. Ben Franklin’s Houston plumbers can offer you our expertise on available options and differences between varieties of water heater to help you choose the one that can best save your family time and money.
The most notable difference between varieties of conventional water heaters is the type of energy used to heat the tank:
- Natural Gas
The energy source you have in your home will dictate the type of water heater needed. In most homes, water heater capacity can vary between 20 and 100 gallons with the average household having a 40 to 50 gallon tank installed. Electricity tends to be the most commonly available option and has the added bonus of being able to be used for hybrid water heater systems as well as conventional ones. Propane can be used in tankless water heaters as well as traditional, and natural gas has the benefit of being more environmentally friendly than the other counterparts.
