When selecting a new water heater for your home, choosing a water heating system that provides enough hot water when you need it is just one part of the picture. Choosing a model that will do the job with minimal energy usage, thus saving you money, is equally important.

A standard, single-family storage water heater offers a ready reservoir of hot water, from 20 to 80 gallons depending on the model. It operates by releasing hot water from the top of the tank when you turn on your hot water tap. To replace that hot water, cold water enters the bottom of the tank, ensuring that the tank is always full. Standard, conventional storage water heaters can use fuel sources such as natural gas, propane, fuel oil, and electricity.

At Empire Heating & Air Conditioning, our Power Vent water heaters are power vented for positive exhaust. They offer greater installation flexibility with the ability to vent through a wall or roof, with 2 “or 3″ PVC, ABS, or CPVC pipe. They also provide an increased amount of hot water available at a usable temperature in less time than standard water heaters. Power Direct Vent models are the solution to installations that lack sufficient air for combustion, and require installation flexibility. All models can vent vertically or horizontally and are also approved for direct-vent, closed combustion application. Call before noon for same-day installation.
Power vent water heaters qualify for a Utilities Rebate, call for details.Financing plans available including “No Interest” plans.
Tankless water heaters, also known as “instantaneous” water heaters, are suitcase-sized units that dispense hot water only when needed, by using an electric coil (typically for low demand) or natural gas (for high demand) to heat water passing through a heat exchanger inside. They eliminate the risk of tank failure and the energy lost by constantly reheating water. Other advantages include:
- Vents with standard PVC – lower cost, readily available, and easy to install
- Built-in condensate neutralizer reduces installation cost and time
- ENERGY STAR® rated
- Heats hot water on demand, not continuously
- 98% energy efficiency for lowest annual operating cost and fastest payback, compared to standard water heaters
- Receive hot water much faster than standard water heaters
- Endless supply of hot water
