Get to know your options, and contact us with any questions you may have.

Tank vs. Tankless Water Heaters

There is a debate about which model of water heater is superior: those that hold a reservoir of hot water in a storage tank, or tankless on–demand models. In truth, neither is inherently better. There is, however, one which will be a better fit for you. Figure out which this is with the help of a Mount Vernon, WA water heater pro at Foss Heating & Cooling.

Both tank and tankless water heaters may operate using either gas or electricity as a fuel source. While natural gas does tend to be a cheaper option to purchase, it requires you to have natural gas piped into your home. If you are not located near a gas main, this can be an issue. Electricity is usually more expensive to purchase, but is available just about anywhere.

Once you have chosen whether to purchase a gas or electric water heater, you must decide whether a tank or tankless model is right for you. With a tank water heater, you have a reservoir of hot water at the ready at all times. Of course, this requires you to continually heat that hot water, as some standby energy loss is unavoidable. Tankless water heaters heat only the water that is called for on demand. This makes them very efficient. However, if hot water is being called for at multiple points of use, they may be overwhelmed. Discuss your hot water needs with a Mount Vernon, WA water heater technician to determine which is the better option for you.

Heat Pump Water Heaters

There is still another option to consider prior to your Mount Vernon, WA water heater installation. With a heat pump water heater, you can take advantage of the great efficiency that a heat pump offers when heating water for your home. Relying on the heat transfer principle, heat pump water heaters use ambient energy in order to heat your water. Should your system be overwhelmed, a backup water heater can be used to supplement your heat pump water heater. Contact Foss Heating & Cooling for more information.
