Today you have many choices when it comes to hot water heaters.
Gas or Electric
Your choice here will depend partly on what is available to you. If you only have electric hookups, or it would be difficult to install a gas line, then you'll likely choose an electric water heater. In general, gas water heaters are more energy efficient. Gas units cost a little more upfront, but they recoup this expense in 1-2 years in terms of energy savings. Gas water heaters also heat water more quickly and that's why they're more energy efficient.
Solar Water Heaters
Tank or Tankless
Tankless hot water heaters take a different approach. They are newer, more energy efficient, less prone to breakdowns, and are more expensive. They come in both gas and electric varieties, but unless you live in a year-round warm environment, you'll want to choose a gas tankless system. A tankless system heats water on demand. You turn on the faucet and water it heated via high heat burners. No water is stored in a tank and continually heated and re-heated. If a tankless system fails there is no worry of flood damage. A tankless system can last 20 years or more, depending on the manufacturer.
