Hybrid Water Heater Service in the Barrie Region
Once upon a time, the only type of water heater that widely available for homes was the storage water heater that used a tank of water kept under constant heat. Storage water heaters are still around and still the most popular residential water heater type. But homeowners have more options today when it comes to how they supply a household with hot water. One popular option is the tankless water heater, which only heats up water on demand. And now there is the hybrid water heater, which combines the advantages of the storage water heater with a tankless water heater.

What Is a Hybrid Water Heater?
The "hybrid" part of a hybrid water heater is that is combines elements of a storage water heater and a tankless water heater. It uses both an available supply of hot water and heating elements that heat water one demand.
Here are the basics of how it works: When a hot water tap comes in the house, there is already a small tank filled with warm water that can immediately respond. But at the same time, a pump turns on and starts to draws the cooler water at the bottom of the tank into a tankless heating unit that heats it up. This water is then sent to the top of the tank to replenish the supply. This heating process stops when the hot water tap is shut down, although the tankless unit continues to work while it still has water to heat up. In this way, a hybrid water heater quickly replenishes the supply tank, making a great match of the advantages of a tankless and a storage water heater.
The Advantages of Installing a Hybrid Water Heater
Storage water heaters and tankless water heaters have benefits and drawbacks, and a hybrid helps to minimize both by melding their best features together:
- Like a storage water heater… a hybrid has water already heated that can be pumped directly to taps. This means there is no long delay waiting for water to arrive as there often is with a tankless water heater. This is more convenient and wastes far less water.
- Like a tankless water heater… a hybrid consumes a lower amount of energy because it does not use constant power to keep the water in the tank heated. Hybrids also have longer lifespans and they will not run out of their hot water supply because it is replenished as it is used.
