Tank Vs. Tankless Water Heaters: Which is Right for You?
Do you need to replace your current water heater? Are you building a new home in Annville, PA, and need a new water heater? If you answered yes to either question, you should know the differences between tank and tankless water heaters. Read on to learn more so that you can save time, energy and money in the long run.
Tank Vs. Tankless
Traditional water heaters contain a tank that pre-heats and stores up to 50 gallons of water. When the tank empties all the water, the tank refills. On the other hand, tankless water heaters don’t have a tank and heat water when needed.
Tank water heaters last for up to 15 years with regular maintenance. Tankless water heaters can last 20 years or more if you maintain yours. The extra years of life help you save money by requiring fewer water heater replacements.
Since traditional water heaters contain a tank, they take up more space than tankless water heaters. A tankless water heater can install on a wall. If you want to save space in your home, a tankless water heater is the best option.
It’s cheaper to purchase a tank water heater and costs less to install. But since it has to heat and reheat water when you’re not using it, it uses more energy and increases your utility bills. Tankless water heaters use far less energy, and those savings can more than make up the difference in the purchase and installation price of the unit.
