How to Choose a Water Heater for Your Yardley Home

December 5, 2023

It’s easy to take a water heater for granted until it fails and you’re forced to take a cold shower. When searching for a new water heater, Yardley residents come to Chud Air Conditioning, Heating & Duct Cleaning. Here are some factors to consider so you can choose one that is right for your family.

Tank vs. Tankless

A conventional storage water heater holds hot water in a reservoir so it’s available when needed. A tankless water heater heats up water on demand, rather than heating it ahead of time and storing it. Tankless water heaters cost more up front than models with tanks, but tankless water heaters typically use less energy, have lower operating costs, and last longer.


You should choose a water heater that is an appropriate size for your family’s needs. Think about how much hot water you use on a daily basis to wash clothes and dishes and to take showers. If your family uses a lot of water, you may need a large water heater, or you may decide to install more than one.

Fuel Type

The type of fuel a water heater uses can affect its efficiency, size, and operating costs. Water heaters can use several types of fuel, including:

    • Oil
    • Propane
    • Natural gas
    • Electricity
    • Solar
    • Geothermal energy

Operating Costs

Compare operating costs for water heaters that use different sources of fuel. Think about the types of fuel that are readily available in your area and their costs so you can narrow down your options. One type of water heater might require less fuel than another, but the one that needs less fuel might cost more to operate if the fuel it uses is more expensive.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”

  • “We have been a customer of Chud Air Conditioning, Heating & Duct Cleaning for many years and have always had a very satisfying experience. The technicians have been very responsive during emergencies, are informative, and professional. Shane was our recent service technician who replaced our water heater. Shane was excellent, very thorough, friendly, and dependable. I would not hesitate to use them again and don’t forget to ask for Shane!”

  • “We rely on Chud Duct Cleaning to perform our regular duct cleaning in our home. Your service technicians Lewis and Sebastian arrived promptly, introduced themselves and got right to work. Our home has many vents behind and under furniture, which was moved and replaced as if nothing ever happened. My home was carefully prepared and respected throughout the entire process. An access panel was replaced for a more pleasant look and better access in the future. I will not hesitate to use this company for service again.”
