There are different types of water heaters which range from natural gas water heaters, electric water heaters, solar water heaters, heat pump water heaters, tankless water heaters to storage tank water heaters, conventional water heaters, condensing water heaters and demand water heaters. Many are high efficiency, which can save money on propane or electric rates, and offer cost savings on energy bills by having a lower energy consumption.
