We know how difficult it can be to choose a new water heater. You may have heard that tankless water heaters save energy, but is this the right choice for your home? While we recommend talking over your options with a plumber before finalizing your decision, we’ve put together a brief guide to the two systems so you can feel a lot more informed.
The benefits of tankless water heaters
One of the main reasons people decide to go with a tankless water heater is because they help to conserve energy. Storage tank water heaters have to remain running at all times so that you can have hot water whenever you need it. Tankless water heaters just heat the water on demand, so it turns on when you need the water and shuts right back off afterwards.
Tankless water heaters may cost a little more to install, but the monthly savings on top of the long lifespan may offset the price. Plus, your tankless water heater won’t run out of hot water during a single use. They are also small in size, which might leave room for you to store more belongings.
Tank water heaters are still a great choice
But don’t rule out conventional storage tank water heaters just yet. Tank water heaters may come at a lower cost, which is often the most important thing to a homeowner. Furthermore, they can be more reliable at times, particularly since they tend to get hot water to your shower and faucets a lot faster.
The best thing you can do is talk over your options with your plumbing company and make a decision only after you feel completely informed.
