Traditional Water Heaters vs. Tankless Water Heaters
A traditional water heater is what most of us imagine when we think of a water heater. Using a large tank to store and heat your home’s water, this style is ideal for larger homes as it can store up to 60 gallons of hot water at a time, and it also demands more space for installation.
Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand water heaters, heat the water as it passes through the system, making it more energy- and space-efficient. Morris Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can help you determine the best choice for your home based on your needs and your budget.
Indirect Water Heaters vs. Heat Pumps
An indirect water heater is not as energy efficient as traditional or tankless water heaters because it relies on an exterior boiler or furnace to provide the necessary heat, but it is ideal for homes that already have these units installed.
Heat pumps, on the other hand, can be incredibly energy efficient because they use electricity to move heat from one place to another rather than generating the heat itself.

Using a Boiler as a Water Heater
Do you use a boiler to heat your Essex County home? Boilers are popular choices throughout the East Coast due to their low cost of operation, outstanding heat output, and their ability to double as a source of hot water for your home. By combining the functions of your boiler and your water heater into the same unit, you’ll save on utility costs, gain added flexibility, and also gain added longevity for your hot water supply.
