Hot Water Heaters
What is The Purpose of a Hot Water Heater?
As the name suggests a hot water heater provides a home with a steady supply of hot water to be used for bathing and washing.
A water heater can be powered by electricity, natural gas, or propane.
There are two basic types of hot water heaters, a tank type, and a “tankless” type. The tank type holds from 40-60 gallons of water for use as needed, while the “tankless” type differs by providing instant hot water on an “as needed” basis.
