The storage tank water heater is designed to heat and store water—ready to use—in a tank. Tanks come with water-storage capacities in the range of 20 to 80 gallons, but the normal household in Austin usually does well with a 40- or 50-gallon tank. When the dishwasher, washing machine or shower runs, preheated water is pulled from the top of the tank and flows right to where you need it. The water heater then pulls cold water into the bottom of tank and heats it so more hot water is prepared when you need it.
Storage tank water heaters are tempting because they usually have an inexpensive initial purchase and installation price than other water heaters. However, a few people are fearful that a storage tank water heater won’t be as energy efficient as they’d hope for. While it’s true that tankless water heaters are great for energy efficiency, a tank water heater can still be efficient.
According to energystar.gov, many ENERGY STAR certified models have better insulation, heat traps and more efficient burners—which can lead to an 8 percent reduction in energy use. No matter what your hot-water needs are, you’ll be able to choose from multiple sizes of storage tank water heaters with the help of the professionals at Strand Brothers. Each is covered by a great warranty and installation backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Call Strand Brothers today for ENERGY STAR®-rated, anything-but-traditional tank water heaters.
