3 Primary Types of Water Heaters

As a property owner you are faced with countless decisions, big and small. At Redline Heating, we know this can be overwhelming so we do what we can to provide well guided, knowledgeable advice. As a property owner, you will likely choose the type of water heater you use in your home.

The type of water heater you purchase will depend on your property and hot water needs.  You have several types of water heaters you can choose from: conventional, tankless, and hybrid. In this blog, we will discuss the benefits of each primary type of water heater.


Conventional water heaters are beneficial because they store constantly heater water. Economically, this heater is a fantastic choice. You can choose to store this water heater in your garage basement, or closet. Depending on the model, a conventional tank water heater will vary tremendously in efficiency. Its capacity will also vary. For this reason it’s smart to speak with our professional at Redline Heating, about what sort of conventional water heater will work best for your property.


Tankless water heaters are initially more expensive than conventional water heaters, but they can reduce energy consumption by 30%. An appliance that uses less energy will reduce your utility bills and are environmentally friendly. Tankless water heaters warm cold water with an electric element or with a gas burner. Consequently, tankless water heaters can run out of warm water during heavy usage. For this reason, tankless water heaters are a great option for smaller residents or people living in their residence part-time. These type of water heaters hang on the wall allowing for more floor space. However, they do require ventilation. Tankless water heaters have many benefits and can be fantastic choice for many people. Consult with a Redline Heating technician to see if this heater matches your home.


As its name suggest, hybrid water heaters combine elements of conventional and tankless heaters. It functions by heating cold water via an electrical heating element and heat pump that pulls in air air while extracting heat. Similar to tankless water heaters, hybrids are initially more expensive than conventional water heaters. However, it is also more energy efficient. Hybrid heaters arguably function the best. They are capable of delivering more hot water, up to 33 percent faster than conventional water heaters. Hybrid heaters also tend to have a longer life expectancy.
