The storage tank water heater is set up to heat and store water—ready to use—in a tank. Tanks come with water-storage capacities in the range of 20 to 80 gallons, but the normal household in Albany usually does well with a 40- or 50-gallon tank. When the dishwasher, washing machine or shower is working, preheated water is pulled from the top of the tank and flows right to the point of use. The water heater then pulls cold water into the bottom of tank and heats it so more hot water is prepared when you need it.
Storage tank water heaters are tempting because they typically have a lower initial purchase and installation price than other water heaters. However, some people are fearful that a storage tank water heater won’t be as energy efficient as they’d like. While it’s true that tankless water heaters are better for energy efficiency, a tank water heater can still be efficient.
According to energystar.gov, many ENERGY STAR certified models have better insulation, heat traps and more efficient burners—which can mean an 8 percent reduction in energy use. No matter what your hot-water needs are, you’ll be able to find multiple sizes of storage tank water heaters with the help of the specialists at Roland J. Down Service Experts.
