Types of Water Heaters

  • Traditional tank water heaters hold significant amounts of water which is heated and ready to use.
  • Tankless water heaters heat water directly, when you need it.
  • Solar water heaters usually 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 purchase. Mountainwest Service Experts can help resolve that by helping you understand your hot water usage, the flow rate of varying devices in your house and how many of them you’ll want to use at the same time.

For tankless water heaters, the progression will be alike in that a local professional from Mountainwest Service Experts can assess your needs, including your projected temperature growth based on the temperature of your water when it enters your living space. After we’ve done the math for you, we’ll recommend a few selections as tankless water heaters are often rated on a variety of inlet temperatures.

Sizing a traditional tank water heater can be a little more effortless 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 factors, you have a assortment of choices for powering your new water heater. It can also vary on where you live, but Mountainwest Service Experts will provide you with information on the best options for the Salt Lake City area and your specific needs.

Tankless Water Heaters

If you’re in Salt Lake City, 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 totally different way than typical tank-style water heaters, which heat all of the stored water at once. The difficulty with that is—if the heated water doesn’t get used up—the water cools over time and needs to be reheated.

Tankless Water Heaters make use of gas burners or electric coils to heat water only when it’s needed, saving you big-time on energy bills. Think what it would be like to have a continuous 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 compact in size, energy-efficient in design, and low-cost to run.

Tank Water Heaters 

With ENERGYSTAR®-certified models, and backed by the skilled plumbing team at Mountainwest Service Experts, you can be assured that you’ll never 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 instantly 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 purchase one or the other should be based on your situational factors.
