Bennett Service Experts can speak with you about the options you’ll need to contemplate, including which type of fuel is optimal for your water heating needs, how large your water heater tank needs to be, how energy efficient the system is and which systems are within your budget.

Types of Water Heaters

  • Traditional tank water heaters maintain substantial amounts of water which is heated and ready to use.
  • Tankless water heaters heat water directly, when you need it.
  • Solar water heaters often times have a storage tank that holds water heated by the sun.

Water Heater Size

The size of your water heater depends on your hot water usage and on the type of water heater you buy. D.A. Bennett Service Experts can help resolve that by helping you understand your hot water usage, the flow rate of different devices in your living space and how many of them you’ll want to use at one time.

For tankless water heaters, the process will be comparable in that a local professional from D.A. Bennett Service Experts can assess your needs, considering your expected temperature increase based on the temperature of your water when it enters your home. After we’ve completed the math for you, we’ll recommend a few options as tankless water heaters are often rated on a variety of inlet temperatures.

Sizing a traditional tank water heater can be a little easier than a tankless water heater because our experts only need to identify how much water needs to be gathered to meet your water needs at peak usage. It can all be a bit overwhelming but we’re here to help you.

Fuel Type

Depending on your location and other aspects, you have a assortment of options for powering your new water heater. It can also vary on where you live, but D.A. Bennett Service Experts will provide you with information on the best options for the Albany area and your specific needs.

Tankless Water Heaters

If you’re in Albany, a tankless water heater is a great option for saving money on utility bills. It has between 80% and 92% efficiency. Not only will tankless water heaters save space, but they also work in a completely different way than conventional tank-style water heaters, which heat all of the stored water at once. The issue with that is—if the heated water doesn’t get used up—the water cools eventually and needs to be reheated.

Tankless Water Heaters make use of gas burners or electric coils to heat water only when it’s needed, meaning big-time savings on energy bills. Just think how convenient it would be to have a non-stop supply of hot water. Yes… with a tankless system you can run your dishwasher or your washing machine…and still get a hot shower! They are small in size, energy-efficient in design, and low-cost to run.

Tank Water Heaters 

With ENERGYSTAR®-certified models, and backed by the professional plumbing team at D.A. Bennett Service Experts, you can be sure that you won’t have to worry about taking a shower with cold water (unless you wanted to).

The tank water heater is engineered to heat and store water in the tank, usually 40 or 50 gallons at a time. When the dishwasher, the washing machine, or a soothing hot shower runs, the pre-heated water that’s stored in the tank flows swiftly to the point of use. The tank then refills, and the water is reheated. Tankless water heaters heat water in an instant and can provide a virtually unlimited supply of hot water. But honestly, there are positives and negatives to both types of hot water heaters, and the decision to invest in one or the other should be based on your desires.
