Hybrid Water Heaters – The Best of Both Worlds

bestIf you’re building a new home, remodeling your current home or considering replacing your old water heater with one that’s more eco-friendly, energy efficient and cost effective then you owe it to yourself to check out the latest in water heating technology; Hybrid Water Heaters.

Hybrid Water Heater Technology

Traditional tank water heaters can supply hot water to multiple locations in your home. However, a high demand for hot water can deplete the tank. On the other hand, a tankless water heater can supply an endless volume of hot water, but it is not always able to meet the demands of multiple applications in a busy household.

A hybrid water heater combines tank type and tankless technology in one water heating system. A hybrid system offers the best of both worlds; continuous hot water capabilities through high efficiency and the ability for homeowners to use multiple hot water-utilizing appliances simultaneously. Hybrid water heating systems offer optimum performance by combining the positive attributes of both tank and tankless water heaters.

Hybrid Water Heating Energy Efficiency

Water heaters generally use the most energy of any home appliance, yet the government program that certifies energy-efficient appliances, Energy Star, didn’t start regulating water heater energy usage until 2008.

Over the last few years, there’s been a movement to make water heaters more energy efficient. This can mean huge energy savings, as about 17% of a home’s energy usage stems from its water heater. These savings are good for the environment, our future and our wallets. Hybrid water heaters and heating systems can save the average family hundreds of dollars in energy costs each year.

Benefits of Hybrid Water Heaters

The most obvious benefit of hybrid water heaters is their efficiency. Water heaters can be extremely energy inefficient, in part because their energy usage wasn’t regulated until 2008.

This is particularly concerning because water heaters often use the most energy in a home or approximately one-fifth of your homes entire energy use!

Other Hybrid Water Heating Benefits Include:

  • Consistent water pressure and precise water temperature
  • Durable and clean due to their stainless steel construction
  • After they self-clean, they maintain 86% efficiency
  • Even though they are compact, you can replace your hybrid hot water heater tank
  • Protect the environment by emitting as low as 3ppm NOx
