The Benefits of a Hybrid Water Heater

If you’re in the market for a new water heater, hopefully you’re doing your homework to see what type of system is exactly right for your needs. You’ve no doubt read a lot about both traditional, tank-style water heaters and tankless models. However, what you might not know is that there is a hybrid water heater that combines the best of both tank and tankless styles. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Dallas would like to share some information that could help make your choice a lot easier.

How a Hybrid Water Heater Works

In a nutshell, a hybrid water heater can help save a great deal of energy. You may not have known that heating water can account for nearly 20 percent of your home’s energy usage. By cutting down that number, you will not only save a great deal of money in the long run, you’ll also be doing your part to save the environment.

Both traditional and tankless water heaters heat water from the bottom. In a tank system, air rises through the tank and exits from the top. In a tankless system, water travels through copper pipes. A hybrid water heater, on the other hand, has a number of pipes that heat up, with water flowing through them for quick heating.

We carry the Eternal Hybrid Water Heater, which uses a heat exchanger to deliver endless hot water at full pressure throughout your home. That means you won’t have to worry about losing water pressure during a shower just because your dishwasher, clothes washer, or another shower is being used at the same time.

Why You Want One

Here are just a few of the reasons you should consider an Eternal Hybrid Water Heater:

  • They hold three times the water of conventional models.
  • They use up to 50 percent less natural gas.
  • They come with a 20-year warranty.
