Which Type of Water Heater is Right For You?

Posted by HTP on Feb 26, 2018 10:00:00 AM

When it comes to choosing a water heater there are many factors to consider. Most likely you will need to make one quickly, but also want to make sure you are choosing a unit that is efficient and suitable for all your hot water needs. This can be a hard task and  HTP wouldn't want you to have to make such an important decision on your own. 

There are 4 major tank types when it comes to water heating. Let's break each down so your decision process can begin. Like we mentioned, there are a few factors that go into choosing which will be right for you, but here are some starting facts:

Tanks WHs.jpg

Tank Type - Tank type water heaters store your heated water with a traditional tank (hence the not so subtle name). They are typically a bit more economical and can be purchased in either gas or electric models. They tend to vary in gallon capacities from 20 to 115 gallons and efficiencies and rebated range between models and fuel sources.

Tankless - This tends to be a popular style because of its ability to produce endless hot water. Tankless units heat your cold water instantaneously. They can require a large upfront investment but they can reduce energy consumption by as much as 30% providing savings in the long run. If you are low on space these units are ideal as well as they can be hung on walls and are compact.

Crossover - Crossover's combine the on-demand technology of a tankless water heater with minimal water storage. This unit creates hot water to maximize efficiency without waste or standby loss that could come with a large tank. It provides immediate hot water like a traditional tank without delay and easily adapts to building recirculation pumps.

Volume Water Heaters - These water heaters are used to provide large volumes of Domestic Hot Water typically for commercial applications like restaurants, hotels, apartment buildings, etc. They are also referred to as supply boilers.

Efficiently Heating Your Home

Posted by HTP on Feb 21, 2018 11:00:00 AM

Winter is still here, unfortunately and keeping your home warm should still be a top priority as we head to round out the brutal winter season. At HTP your heating needs and providing them as efficiently as possible is at the top of our list.

Energy Star recently published an article on 5 hottest tips to keep you warm. One of the top tips is how to heat your home efficiently and we have found their suggestions super helpful. Once you've absorbed their help,  head over to our website and check out our tips on how to choose which space heater is right for you by clicking here.

To read the Energy Star article in its entirety please click here and check out the excerpt below:

In the average American household, almost half of the annual energy bill goes to heating and cooling – more than $900 a year. This season, fall into energy savings with heating tips from ENERGY STAR and enjoy lower energy bills, increased home comfort, and the warm feeling that comes from knowing you’re helping reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change, making a difference in the environment for your family and generations to come.

Maintaining your HVAC system can save you big on utility bills and comfort.

  • Check your furnace’s air filter once a month, especially during the heavy-use months of winter. A dirty filter slows air flow, making the system work harder which wastes energy. If it’s dirty, clean or replace it. At a minimum, clean or replace it every three months.
  • Sealing and insulating air ducts, especially those in your attic or crawlspace, helps keep the heat where you want it and can improve your HVAC system’s efficiency by as much as 10%.
  • Consider a yearly professional tune-up of your HVAC system.
  • If you need to replace your HVAC system, ask your contractor about ENERGY STAR certified units. And make sure that your new energy-efficient unit is properly installed for maximum savings.
