Tank Vs. Tankless: The Right Choice for Your Water Heater

Tank Vs. Tankless: The Right Choice for Your Water Heater

We all have to make tough choices from time to time. Some choices have little impact on the future, like deciding what dressing to use on a salad or choosing which new detective novel to pick up next. But deciding on your next water heater installation is more difficult than you might guess, and the wrong water heater could leave you spending a lot more than you need to in the long run.

Tank vs. Tankless

In this post, we compare tank and tankless water heaters, and give you the information you need to begin the process of picking a new water heater installation.

Tankless Water Heaters

A tankless water heater may assist you in saving a lot of money over the years. This is because tankless water heaters heat up water in demand rather than keeping it stored in a large tank for later use. Tankless water heaters are small in size, which may be ideal if you have a large water heater tank occupying a closet or a room that could be employed for alternative purposes as well.

However, tankless water heaters do have some negatives. If you have several people living in the home, you may actually need to install multiple units. The system could struggle if two people were using hot water in different bathrooms. Additionally, tankless water heaters sometimes have some difficulties getting water heated up quickly, and it may take several years before the savings offset the initial cost.

Tank Water Heaters

Tank water heaters are still the best option in many situations. Hot water is available when you need it as long as you have a technician install a tank that is the proper size for your family’s needs. A tank water heater may have a lower upfront cost, but this is due in part to the higher cost of operation. Ask a technician for help choosing between these two viable options so you can find the perfect fit for your home.
