It is very difficult to say which is the best water heater. There are none better, but different products that can meet the specific needs of each user. To help in choosing your heating system, let's explain a little of each one, its advantages and its disadvantages.

- Electric Water Heaters. They can also be divided into heaters with tank and without the tank. Electric heaters without tanks are the most common, but those with the most disadvantaged. They are less effective than those with deposit and are usually installed directly at the point of use. Its advantages are the low cost and ease of installation. Electric showers, faucet heaters (installed under or above the sink) and the like constitute these types of heaters. Electric heaters with the tank are often called boilers. Like gas heaters, they have a large storage cylinder. The water accumulates inside this cylinder and remains hot thanks to electrical resistance. The advantages of this system are its efficiency in the production of hot water since the water arrives quickly at the point of consumption. The disadvantage of this system is the high-energy consumption, as it operates continuously to keep the water warm. To reduce power consumption, however, you can install a timer that activates the system at any scheduled time.

- Solar heaters. Recently, they have been in vogue as a way to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings, making them more sustainable. The system requires space and exposure to sunlight, so it is almost always installed on the roofs of houses. It consists of a series of heating panels that are run by water, connected by a pump to a tank of cylindrical shape. This cylinder also has a resistance and functions as an electric boiler, it is to keep the water warm at night, or in days of low sunlight. The solar system has a higher installation cost than other heating options, but the reduction in electricity and gas bill compensates it, after a certain time of use.

- Gas Water Heaters. They are divided basically into two large groups: with deposit and without the deposit. On Tankless water heater NJ models the water gradually heats up as it passes through it. The heating is produced by the passage of water through a system known as a serpentine located around a combustion chamber, without having to have a deposit for the accumulation of itself. There are many models of Tankless water heater NJ, from the simplest, mechanical, to the modern electronic models with digital controls. In the combi boiler NJ models, the heating is produced by the passage of water through the same serpentine system. The difference is that they have an accumulation tank, where water already heated in boilers is stored, which are usually installed on the roofs. The fact that the Combi boiler NJ has a greater capacity than the tankless water heater NJ , allows the same to satisfy different points of consumption, or a point of great demand like a bathtub. However, its size is much larger than those that have no deposit.
