Now things to consider when purchasing your water supply unit:
Whether price is an object or are you thinking long term cost?
When it comes to price your needs are the most important factor, depending on your budget and on what type of heating source suits you.
Gas(propane) and electric water tanks are the lowest to install. As for operating costs currently gas is the cheapest source of fuel, propane is about twice as much and electric can cost up to 3 times more.
If you have a larger usage(4 or more) you may want to look at a tankless water heater that can meet the demand of your household which also saves floor space and runs only when you need it unless it has a pilot light. If the tank is electric it draws a lot of power when in use.
Thinking Green? The solar hot water system could be for you, but the initial costs are considerably higher.It also draws electricity when the solar panels have not drawn enough to supply it, which can up the operating costs considerably.
What types of water heaters are a possibility?
Gas would be the preferred method of a heating source with propane being the second choice. If it comes down to electric water heaters you may want to consider a solar powered hot water unit to cut down on those electricity bills that arrive every month. If you have a large demand(4 or more people) the tankless hot water system would be a good choice.( natural gas and electric models are available )

Does The Water Heater Brand Matter?
Brand does matter, companies such as GE, Bradford White, Rheem and so on have been around for years and have built a reputation for lasting. If it as a brand new model, being the first is not necessarily best. Just like buying a car there can be problems with certain parts that have not been proven to be reliable. With this in mind there is a lot less parts to a hot water system than a car thus less problems should arise.
Does size or output matter to your hot water needs?
You need to know what your needs are? Are you single, a family of four or more?
If you own a home and are in need of replacing your current unit, know what your current needs are and if you want to improve them.
Keep in mind the most expensive is not the best for you. We are here to provide you with choice and opportunity to improve your system while meeting your needs. Whether you are building a new home or upgrading your existing hot water heater. Remember to think long term if it applies or short term if you are selling your home.
