The job of a water heater is simple, to produce heated water. But there are numerous methods to achieve that goal, for different situations and demands. All have their pros and cons.
There are also numerous other types of water heaters for different demands.
As you're going to live with your water heater for the next couple of years, it's best to have all your criteria sorted out. There are numerous types of heaters in the market, and choosing the best one for your budget and need is the key to a long and fruitful year of service.
The most important consideration is, how much hot water and the flow rate you need. This dictates the size of the tank you should get or the rated flow rate of your heater. If you buy a smaller tank in contrast to your home requirements, you might suffer. This also dictates your electricity consumption rate. Secondly, you should get one with a proper warranty, so that you can replace it in the untimely event of failure without spending more. Your budget is also a crucial factor, and depending on this, you might have to rethink the material quality and longevity you might get. There are various extra features like a digital display, better sensors, control systems, and other things you can get if your budget isn't short.
Periodic maintenance and repair jobs are an integral part of any system, including water heaters. Maintenance jobs keep the system up and running at its best, increase the lifespan and quality. But, at a certain point, you will need repairs. Times when you encounter issues like higher electric bills than average, yet lower heating efficiency, other issues like material degradation, microbial infestation, leaking fluid, and many more, that's the time you really should seek professionals for a repair job. Repairs are cheaper than outright replacement, where you replace the whole system or a portion of it with a new one. But, when you see that the system is taking too much repairing, it's better to replace it than spending more to repair it.
