Your home's water heater allows you to take hot showers, run your dishwasher, and do laundry. If you currently have a standard model and are looking for a replacement, a hybrid water heater has much to offer. This appliance provides the benefits of tank, tankless, and heat pump water heaters for efficient and reliable operation. Here are a few reasons to speak with a plumber about installing this device. 

Why Upgrade to a Hybrid Water Heater?

1. Save on Utility Costs

With a pump, the device pulls warmth from the air instead of generating the heat on its own, which is much more energy-efficient than other models. Tank water heaters tend to experience sediment buildup that makes the tank work harder to produce hot water, resulting in rising energy costs. While a hybrid model has a reserve tank, it's only used as a last resort.

2. Reliable Access to Hot Water


While tankless water heaters are more efficient, they also have trouble providing enough water when demand is high. If multiple people in your house need hot water at the same time, the hybrid system's reserve tank will ensure you don't run out. This feature makes the model ideal for large households. 

3. Fewer Risks

A traditional tank heater typically uses natural gas, which is associated with some hazards. If the device malfunctions, there could be a dangerous buildup of fumes in your home. 

They also carry a risk of carbon monoxide exposure if there's an issue with the heat exchanger. Hybrid heaters use electricity to operate, allowing you to avoid these potential risks.
