There are water heaters, and then there are super high efficiency water heaters. Even though they have a tank and look similar to conventional water heaters, the high efficiency water heater is in a class by itself.

Super High Efficiency Water Heaters are also called Gas Condensing Water Heaters. They have up to 96% thermal efficiency, which means that 96% of the energy that they use is transferred directly to the water to heat it. Obviously, standard water heaters have nowhere near that rate. In fact, these high efficiency water heaters extract so much of the heat, their vent pipes are made of plastic, not metal. Before any gases leave the unit, they are no longer hot!

You get endless hot water from the same size tank, and save money on energy bills at the same time. Since a family of four can save $2,550 on energy bills over the life of this type of water heater, larger families will save even more.

Best Uses for Ultra High Efficiency Water Heaters Asheville

Super high efficiency water heaters are ideal for larger homes with multiple bathrooms, homes with jacuzzi tubs, or families with people who like to take longer and more frequent showers. Super high efficiency water heaters are great for these situations because, just like tankless water heaters, you’ll never run out of hot water. They are able to heat your water as fast as you can drain the tank. Unlike tankless water heaters, gas condensing water heaters use the same size pipes as pre-existing gas and water lines, which can save some installation troubles, and they have a smaller footprint than conventional tank types with 50 gallons at only 22″. They require either natural gas or propane.

What Kind of Water Heater Maintenance Do I Need?

Different type of water heaters need different types of maintenance to help them last as long as possible. Tank types will need to be drained and flushed regularly, especially if you have a lot of sediment. Waiting too long to clean the tank may force a replacement sooner than expected.

Tankless water heaters need to be descaled and cleaned annually. Give us a call at 828-774-7076 and we can schedule an appointment that is convenient for you to get your water heater serviced.

 

How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

The average lifespan of a water heater is between 8-12 years for a conventional water heater model, about 15 years for ultra-high efficiency or heat pump water heaters and 20+ years for tankless water heaters. Water heaters located in garages or crawl spaces, where the temperature drops significantly, have to work harder to heat the water and tend to wear out more quickly. You may want to have your water heater checked out before its an emergency!
