Water Heaters Services in Duluth, Hermantown and Two Harbors, MN
Hot water is something we don’t think much about until we do not have it. Hot water is a basic need in our lifestyles that we cannot live without just like we need a furnace to heat provide heating for our homes. Summit offers many options to provide reliable hot water in Duluth, Hermantown and Two Harbors based on the most efficient energy sources available.
ELECTRIC HOT WATER HEATERS:
Standard electric hot water heaters incorporate a storage tank with electric elements to heat the hot water. Electric hot water heaters are the often the lowest upfront cost to purchase, but the operating costs are most likely to be the highest depending on cost of electricity supplied by your power utility company.
ATMOSPHERIC GAS HOT WATER HEATERS:
Atmospheric gas hot water heaters incorporate a storage tank with a natural gas or propane burner to heat the hot water. Atmospheric gas type water heaters vent by natural draft up through roof via a chimney or a metal vent and are often the lowest upfront cost gas models to purchase.
POWER VENTILATED GAS HOT WATER HEATERS:
Power ventilated hot water heaters also incorporate a storage tank with natural gas or propane burner to heat the hot water but instead of natural draft venting via chimney they have a power ventilator to mitigate exhaust through the sidewall of home. This application is popular if there is no chimney or vent through roof. They are typically more money than the atmospheric type but generally have lower operating costs.
INDIRECT HOT WATER HEATERS:
Indirect hot water heaters incorporate a storage tank with coils inside of tank that are piped to a hot water boiler which provides the heat source. Indirect hot water heaters typically cost more than the conventional type water heater but depending on the efficiency of the hot water boiler, can have the lowest operation costs and higher hot water recovery rate which also depends on the boiler BTU rating.
TANKLESS TYPE WATER HEATERS:
Tankless type water heaters are becoming more popular in Duluth, Hermantown and Two Harbors due to no standby tank heat loss when hot water is not needed and higher operating efficiencies. Tankless water heaters provide continuous hot water without running out like the tank type which make them popular for commercial uses that require a continuous flow of hot water. Tankless water heaters are typically having the highest install cost but are offset by lower operating costs.
