  • Gas water heating system

Water heating systems running on gas are cheaper to run in the long-term. They take lesser time to reheat water after depletion than electric systems but cannot be vented inside. Their up-front cost is also higher.

  • Considering the sizes of water heating systems

The number of persons living in your household will determine the size of the water heater needed by you. Its manufacturer provides a guideline for a heating unit. A 50-gallon heater should typically fit a family with four members.

Deciding if the heater is large enough should not be solely based on its capacity. The first-hour rating should also be considered as well. This rating informs you of the amount of water that will be heated within a particular time. When looking for a unit to purchase, ensure that you ask about the first-hour rating

The tankless water heating system is compact, making them the preferred choice of homeowners. In addition, they are more efficient as they do not have a storage tank and their hot water supply is endless.

This should depend mainly on the source supplying the appliances in your house at present. So, if you do not make use of natural gas or propane to power up your appliances at present, you should choose the electric heating system as its installation cost is cheaper.

These heating systems are designed to suit climate-controlled rooms as well as warmer climates. In addition, their maintenance can get complex as they are designed with moving parts.
