Conventional water heater more commonly known as storage tanks are the most famous ones. They consist of a huge tank which is insulated, and the water is heated and stored in it. It has a temperature and relief valve that opens by itself if the temperature exceeds a predetermined range. This valve is a safety feature and prevents the water tank from exploding when water reaches 210 degrees.
A gas water heater uses less energy and is most cost efficient as compared to an electric water heater. The typical warranty for the water heater is between three to ten years. The longer warranty models do cost more, but they will have thicker insulation and heavier burners which can speed up water heating. A conventional water heater can hold anywhere between 30 to 80 gallons of water each day. A conventional water heater saves on energy bills by heating the water and storing it in the tank; releasing it only when someone opens a hot water faucet in your house. To replace the lost hot water, cold water is allowed into the tank from the bottom, so it is always full.
