The storage tank water heater is set up to heat and store water—ready to use—in a tank. Tanks come with water-storage capacities between 20 to 80 gallons, but the average household in Ottawa usually does well with a 40- or 50-gallon tank. When the dishwasher, washing machine or shower is working, preheated water is pulled from the top of the tank and flows right to where it’s needed. The water heater then pulls cold water into the bottom of tank and heats it so more hot water is prepared when it’s needed.
Storage tank water heaters are attractive because they typically have a smaller initial purchase and installation price than other water heaters. However, there are people are worried that a storage tank water heater won’t be as energy efficient as they’d like. While it’s true that tankless water heaters are great for energy efficiency, a tank water heater can still be efficient.
According to energystar.gov, quite a few ENERGY STAR certified models have better insulation, heat traps and more efficient burners—which can provide an 8 percent reduction in energy use. No matter what your hot-water needs are, you’ll be able to pick from multiple sizes of storage tank water heaters with the help of the specialists at Francis Home Environment. Each is covered by a great warranty and installation backed by our 100% Guarantee. Call Francis Home Environment today for ENERGY STAR®-rated, anything-but-traditional tank water heaters.
