Westinghouse 80 Gallon WGR080NG076 Review

Westinghouse Water Heaters

Before you decide to go for any Westinghouse water heater, you should first get acquainted with the sorts of water heaters there are on the market. There are various artifacts that can heat water, but to stay simple, we’re going to focus on two common types: tank and tankless.

A short description of the two:

Tank type is maybe the most usual type of water heater. It’s commonly composed of insulating material to hold water and keep it hot till it’s used. These heaters depend more on size and capacity than tankless heaters.

Usually rated in gallons, the tank water heater you will go for should rely on the number of people that you think that will use its water storage daily. If your family members are more than five, the best choice would be to buy a full-sized tank water heater of about 80 gallons.

If the users will be you and your partner, a 30-gallon tank should be enough for you two. Anyway, if you’re thinking of having children in the near future and in the house you’re living now, it could be a good decision to opt for a bigger tank. Consider that the ideal size for a certain number of users will vary depending on the heating device. We will talk about that later.

A tankless water heater, as you can imagine, doesn’t have a tank for holding water. The water warms up as it goes through the inside of the machine, which commonly consists in coils. This way tankless devices offer more consumption efficiency, since they don’t have a water storage to warm up constantly.

On the negative side, unlike tank versions, these heaters deliver a bounded amount of water due to its direct heating mechanism. The amount is rated at about 3,5 gallons of hot water per minute in most of these units. However, this amount should be enough for you if you don’t have huge needs of water.

Power sources

There’s no way to heat water without a power source. Water heaters can feed on electricity, propane, natural gas, or can be hybrid, which is the most recent type. To understand every type of power source, here is a brief description:

Electric

Suitable for either tank or tankless models, an electric source might be the most economical way to power a heater. They work well and are easy to operate. You will find also a wide variety of electric efficiency options for this sort of models.

Gas and Propane

Usually consisting of a burner and air flow to warm up the water, models powered by gas need a more cautious handling. For example, you must keep flammable fluids away from them. The good thing is that these are more consumption efficient than electric models. That means that you will lower your electricity bill more than you would do with the gas bill.

Hybrid

Hybrid models use the power of air from the outside or the inside. It can come built-in in tank models, or be attached to the heater you already have, once verified its compatibility. Buying a hybrid heater is a considerable investment, but it’s a promise of saving in the long term.

As I already said, this kind of power source is quite new in the water heater market. Anyway, it has become very popular due to the new standards of the NAECA, the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act, in terms of secure and efficient appliance installations.
