Comparing Types of Water Heaters in Portland, South Portland and Brunswick, ME

Recent changes in the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act have increased the energy efficiency standards for residential water heating with gas, oil or electricity—meaning new water heaters will produce hot water using fewer resources. In addition to improvements made to models with conventional water storage tanks, consumers also have solar-powered, tankless, and combination space heater/water heater models to consider.

Conventional Storage Tank Water Heaters

Conventional water heaters act as a holding tank for heated water. Cold water flows into the tank and is heated by the fuel source (usually gas or electric). The water sits in the tank where it is monitored by a thermostat and kept hot until there is a call for it from a connected tap.

ProsCons
  • Multiple fuel options
  • Initial purchase is affordable
  • Simple design is easy to repair or replace
  • Wasted energy due to standby heating
  • Storage tank can be large/bulky
  • Lifespan shorter than tankless heaters

Fuel Type and Energy Efficiency

Conventional water heaters are most often fueled by natural gas or electricity. Models that utilize natural gas are less expensive to operate. LP and oil-fueled models are also available. Conventional models must meet the new EF (Energy Factor) standard of .62 or above, depending on the tank size and fuel source.

On Demand/Tankless Water Heaters in Cumberland County

In a tankless unit, water is heated by electric coils or a gas burner as it moves through the heat exchanger.

ProsCons
  • Small size gives more installation options
  • Can last up to twice as long as a conventional model
  • Less wasted energy, only heating minimum amount of water necessary
  • Difficult to heat water for 3+ taps at once
  • Initial investment is higher than conventional models

Fuel Type and Energy Efficiency

Tankless models, like their traditional counterpart, can be fueled by natural gas, LP gas, oil, or electric. These models have an EF standard of .82 or greater.

Solar Water Heater

Using the sun’s natural rays absorbed by roof mounted panels as a power source, solar water heaters in Cumberland County are the most environmentally friendly option available. Electricity from the power grid acts as a back-up so you never go without hot water.

ProsCons
  • Free to operate, weather permitting
  • Gas or electric is used less often to heat water (backup only), resulting in lower bills
  • Most expensive upfront costs
  • Repairs and maintenance for “extra” parts could be costly

Fuel Type and Energy Efficiency

The SEF (Solar Energy Factor) standard is equal to or greater than 1.2 for a natural gas backup unit, 1.8 for an electric backup unit.

Coil Space Heater/Water Heater Combinations

Combination units use the heat produced by the home’s space heating system and a heat exchanger to produce hot water. Hot water is stored in a tank until there is a call from the tap.

ProsCons
    High efficiency units could lower monthly bills Multiple fuel options
  • Installation is lengthier/more complicated
  • Retrofitting could be costly

Fuel Type and Energy Efficiency

Working in combination with your home’s heating space heating source, both units utilize the same fuel. The EF standards are similar to traditional tank units; however, because most combination heaters are high-efficiency they will likely exceed the rated EF standards.

How To Get the Best Water Heater Contractor in Portland, South Portland and Brunswick

You Ask We Answer

How Often Do I Need Service?

Regular inspections and annual flushing can prevent sudden, costly repairs.

It is Making a Lot of Noise But is Still Functioning, Do I Need to Worry Right Now?

This is usually an indication of sediment in the water tank. While you may still have hot water, it is not running as efficiently as it could. Having the tank drained and serviced will improve efficiency and could extend the life of your heater.

Does a Leaking Water Heater Have to be Replaced?

Yes, in most cases a leaking tank means cannot be patched. If a loose fitting is causing the leak however, it might be repairable.

How Long Will My Water Heater Last?

Depending on the model, most will last between 6 and 15 years, though 20 years is not uncommon with regular maintenance and parts replacement.

What Does the Warranty Cover?

This varies by manufacturer, but typically the warranty includes all parts and labor to repair or replace defective parts for the first full year from the date of installation. After the first year, the warranty usually provides coverage for the replacement of defective parts, but does not pay for the labor associated with installing the parts.

Are You Insured?

Liability insurance and workers’ compensation policies protect you from financial obligations stemming from damages or injuries that may occur while a contractor is working on your project. Ask the contractor for a certificate of insurance with you listed as the additional insured (your contractor can obtain this from the insurance agency at no additional cost).

Is a Permit Required For a New Installation?

Yes you need a permit to ensure installation is up to the municipality’s building codes. Aptera installation experts will explain the permit process and obtain the proper permit for you.

Tips for Reducing Your Water Heating Costs

Monthly heating costs can vary greatly depending on the age and model of your water heater, the fuel source used and the amount of hot water you use each day. Reduce waste and your costs by following the guidelines below:
