Tankless VS. Tank Storage Water Heaters

When you are in the market for a water heater within your home, the great debate is usually between a standard tank storage water heater or a tankless water heater. Although there are many upsides to both, here are some of the advantages of each.

Advantages of Tank Storage Water Heaters

Firstly, tank storage water heaters are usually more cost-effective. They are much less expensive to purchase and pretty easy to install so the labor costs are going to be less. Another great benefit of tank storage heater is that they hold about 40 gallons of water in your home. This type of water heater heats the water before you need it, so the hot water sits in the tank and the tank maintains its temperature. A tank water heater can also be installed same-day, so if you are ever in a pinch to obtain or replace your water heater, it can be easily installed with no hesitation. They require minimal upkeep and if you are ever in a situation where your power is out, you will still have hot water on demand.

Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters

When deliberating which type of heater to have in your home, it will always depend on which one you think will fit your needs and your lifestyle. If you have a lot of people in your home and you know that you need water to run in multiple shower heads at the same time, it could be wise to choose a tankless water heater. If your household only utilize 41 gallons or less of water, a tank water heater, also known as a demand water heater, can be more of an optimal choice. As mentioned before, if you are in a pinch and need an affordable, reliable water heater that can be installed the same day, then a standard tank water heater may be a better choice. Again, the decision will ultimately be up to you, your needs, and your preferences.
