Water heaters come in different sizes, types and fuels but they all do the same thing. Their primary job is to take cold water and heat it to comfortable temperatures to bathe with or wash dishes and clothes. There are two main types of water heaters, tank type or tankless.
The tank type varies by its capacity and the fuels used to heat the water where the tankless type is sized by the amount of hot water they can produce within a minute.
The three main fuels used to produce hot water in either the tank or tankless heaters are gas, fuel oil and electricity.
Tank type heaters are the most common and have not changed much in decades. They are cylindrical in shape and come in capacities from 30 gallons for a small residential application to 75 and 100 gallons for a large residences or commercial applications.
They can be heated by any of the aforementioned fuels, either directly or indirectly.
The tankless water heater is a relatively new type and has been on the market for less than 50 years and It came into prominence in the 1990's
It is a wall hung device and is fueled by either gas or electricity. It has almost no storage and makes the water on demand by having a burner that can modulate between a low firing rate of 19,900 btu's and a high firing rate of 199,000 btu's.
There is an oil fueled version of the tankless water heater but it needs to be installed into an oil-fired heating boiler and is referred to as a tankless coil. This system cannot stand alone since it draws its heat from the boiler's heated water.
This is the most limited type since this type has a hard time keeping up with demand. In order to improve its capacity it can be installed with a storage tank, much like an indirect water heater.
