Tankless Water Heaters vs. Storage Tank Water Heaters
A water heater is an expensive investment that most modern families can't live without. And while most water heaters installed today are of the storage tank variety, the tankless water heater is becoming more and more popular. The tankless water heater pipes water into the unit, which is super-heated via gas or electricity and delivered to you. The benefit to a tankless system is that the water is heated as you need it and you never run out, while you can run out with the storage tank heater.
Storage tank water heaters use a large tank that fills up with water and is heated by a heating element so the water is ready when you need it. A storage tank water heater is a good choice for large families that need multiple streams of hot water at once, while the tankless is a good choice for small families who only need a stream at a time or who have limited space.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Type of Water Heater Should You Buy?
There are a variety of water heaters available, but the two main types are storage tank water heaters and tankless water heaters. Most water heaters installed today are storage tank water heaters, but tankless heaters are becoming more and more popular.
If you have a large family that needs multiple streams of hot water at a time, then a storage tank heater is your best bet. However, if you have a smaller family, and would like the convenience of having non-stop hot water on demand, then check out a tankless system.
How Much Does a Water Heater Cost?
A water heater is a big investment and depending on the size and type of water heater you want, it can mean a large expense out of your pocket. While a typical water heater installation can cost between $300-$3,500, the good news is that most Energy Star water heaters are eligible for a tax credit that can soften the blow.
It's best to call a water heater repair service and get their advice before you make your purchase.
What do I do if I have an aging water heater?
Considering the average water heater lasts 10-12 years, it is advisable to replace them before they start leaking to save you the headache of repairing water damages!
Annual water heater flushes are offered in our annual maintenances and highly recommended. During an annual examination, we also inspect the anode rod and T&P safety valve to ensure your water heater is operating safely and properly.
Are Tankless Water Heaters Better?
It depends on what are your needs and what size family you have. The fact of the matter is that tankless water heaters are more efficient than storage tank water heaters and will save you money on your energy bills. Estimates say that homeowners who have a tankless system use 40 gallons less of hot water per day than their storage tank counterparts. However, tankless water heaters are 'output challenged' which means they aren't good at supplying multiple hot water streams at high flow rates simultaneously.
How to Maintain Your Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters are expensive, which is why you'll want to get the most life out of yours if you decide to install it in your home. If you've taken the plunge and installed a tankless system, you must descale the heating elements if you live in an area that has hard water. Keeping your heating elements free from scale ensures the unit will last and function properly for many years to come. If you're not sure how to descale your tankless water heater, call a tankless water heater service for help.
