Main Types Of Water Heaters:

It is heated in the tank, which is available in a wide range of sizes, and then kept hot until it is required. The second type of electric hot water heater is the instantaneous electric hot water heater, where water is heated instantly on demand; there is no water storage tank, so it is possible to have a never-ending whenever a faucet is turned on.
Gas- In the same process as electric systems, gas storage heaters store hot water in tanks; however, they use a gas burner to heat the water. A gas instant water heater is also available which involves a gas burner that only heats water when it is needed, again there is no storage tank so your water will always run hot.
Solar – Solar-powered hot water systems make it possible to heat your water while reducing your impact on the environment.
