Wilkes–Barre, PA Tank Water Heater Services by Green Planet Solutions Corp

Tank water heaters are by far the most popular water heater type in the country. They are characterized by a storage tank, holding anywhere from 20 to 100+ gallons of water, which holds and heats water day and night in case it is needed. This is the most popular water heater type for a number of reasons, not least of which because it is one of the most robust and reliable ways to have hot water on demand. If you’re curious about the kinds of advantages that a tank water heater can offer you, read on.

Why You Should Consider a Tank Water Heater

As mentioned above, tank water heaters are one of the most reliable devices for maintaining a large supply of hot water at all times. The water heater keeps the water in the tank at a set temperature, usually around 120°F. When you turn on the hot water somewhere in your house, the hot water flows out of the water heater and cold water flows in to replace the amount lost. The new water is then heated up to the standard temperature, and the cycle repeats endlessly. This allows the water heater to stand up to pretty incredible demand, depending on how large the storage tank is. Every system has its limits, of course, but it is much more difficult to overwhelm a tank water heater with many gallons of heated water on hand.

We Install and Service Electric Tank Water Heaters

Gas and electric waters heaters are among the most common tank water heater types. Electric water heaters use electric resistance coils to heat the water in the tank. As electricity passes through the coils, they heat up and transfer that heat into the water. Unlike gas water heaters, electric water heaters do not have a constantly burning pilot light. They activate only to make slight adjustments to temperature, or when new water is flowing into the tank. However, electric heating is not as energy efficient as gas heating. If you’d like to know more about the pros and cons of electric tank water heaters, give us a call.

We Install and Service Gas Tank Water Heaters

Gas tank water heaters are the most common type of water heater you’re going to find. Their construction includes a constantly burning pilot light, and a burner assembly located under the tank to warm the water. Natural gas is a very efficient fuel source, which is why it is so widely used in water heaters, furnaces, and the like. This makes it more efficient to run than electric tank water heaters. However, the constantly burning pilot light does waste energy that the electric water heater does not.

Ultimately, you should always consult with a professional before choosing a major appliance for your home. If you aren’t sure which tank water heater would fit your needs best, give us a call. We will make sure your home is equipped with the water heater you need.
