While water heaters today are a lot more efficient than they used to be in previous years, many water heaters still work in the same fashion. A lot of the water heaters that you will find in most homes have a large tank that keeps water hot so that it is available when people in the home turn on the tap. If you find that you are looking for a water heater installation in Arbour Lake, you will want to do your research to know all of your options.
The way that a traditional water heater works is that cold water gets piped in through an area at the bottom of the tank. This water is then heated up by a burner powered by gas or electricity, much like the type of burner that you would have on your stove. The warm water will rise up naturally and it is drawn out of the top portion of the tank as you need it.
Today, there are many different options out there that you can pick from when you know that you need a hot water heater installed. When you get in touch with us at High Mark Plumbing, we can work with you to not only find the right size water heater to fit in with your needs but we can also go over all of the options in terms of efficiency.
Many people are opting for high-efficiency tankless water heaters today, which basically heat the water as-needed or on demand. Instead of having a large water tank that holds the heated water, the water makes its way through a smaller, tankless heating unit where it heats just the water you need when you need it.
