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.

We're Ready for Our Close Up

Posted by HTP on Apr 4, 2017 4:00:00 PM

Recently, HTP's very own SSU was featured on a popular PBS show, This Old House. This Old House is the Number 1 multimedia home enthusiast brand offering trusted information and expert advice through award winning television, a highly regarded magazine and an information driven website.

The video that features our SSU is a tutorial on how to properly  install an indirect water heater on a boiler. The SuperStor Ultra indirect water heat is a culmination of over 30 years of indirect system manufacturing experience. The 316L stainless steel tank resists corrosion and eliminates the need for anode rods, allowing for the system to be virtually maintenance free. The heater draws energy from a boiler and thus does not need its own heat source. Hot boiler water flows through an internal heat exchanger in the tank, heating the domestic water. The SuperStor boasts three to five times more recovery than conventional gas-fired or electric water heaters.

 

Check out the SSU's television debut below!
