There are two basic types of water heater: storage systems and continuous flow systems. Both use an energy source to heat the water. The energy source can be solar, gas, or electricity.
Storage water heaters are heaters where water is heated and stored in an insulated tank where it kept until it is needed. The storage tanks can be made of either copper, glass lined steel, or stainless steel. Continuous flow or instantaneous water heaters heat the water as needed and do not use a storage tank. They can operate on natural gas, LPG, or electricity. They are fitted with controls that allow you, the user, to set your desired water temperature.
Hot water heater systems, like other home systems, need to be maintained regularly, to ensure their safety and efficiency.
