These are great sources for heating water which is why you find them most often. LP/Propane water heaters are less common but work in the same way, just with a different heat souce. These are known as storage water heaters that use insulation and heat traps to keep hot water at a stable temperature.
As the name would suggest, these water heaters take up less space and operate just as well as a traditional water heater. Endless hot water and space savings are two big reasons homeowners choose these as their hot water source.
Heat Pump Water Heaters (HPWHs) are a great alternative to other water heaters. There are considerations for these types of systems that should be noted. HPWHs are generally taller and do require more space for maximum efficiency that traditional water heaters. Based on their design, HPWHs are able to pull from the air surrounding the tank to heat the water, and let out exhaust that is cool and dry.
Water heater failure is fairly common and can start as a small leak. Other causes of water heater failure include age (over 10 years old), sediment build up, or internal and external rust. Failure of a water heater can be more than suddenly cold showers; it can also lead to costly repairs! Being proactive about water heater replacement, rather than reactive can save you time and money in the long run.
