Gas Water Heater: If your home uses gas as its primary energy source, you’ll most likely replace your existing water heater with a new gas water heater.

Electric Water Heater: For homes that are powered mainly by electricity, an electric water heater is likely the best option.

Tankless Water Heater: If you’re looking for a more energy-efficient alternative to a gas water heater, a tankless water heater could be the right choice for your home.

Heat Pump Water Heater: The energy factor of a heat pump water heater is more than twice the efficiency of a standard electric water heater.

Marathon Water Heater: The Marathon water heater has a lifetime guarantee, so it will be the last electric water heater you’ll buy for your home.
