Tank vs. Tankless Water Heater Units
Both types of water heaters have their differences, as well as their pros and cons. Listed below are a few tips and tricks we’ve noticed throughout the years when it comes to making a decision about which unit is best for you.
Tank Water Heaters
Tank units are generally cheaper to install and can often have cheaper repairs than a tankless system. Although they can heat a large amount of water, it is not uncommon for them to run out, leading to ice-cold showers and baths for residents. For those who live in a large household or an apartment complex, this can quickly become a problem. They also tend to have a shorter life span than tankless models.
Tankless Water Heaters
These systems heat up water as it passes through instead of storing it within a tank. These units are energy-efficient and require little to no space throughout the installation process. However, they are more expensive to install, and their maintenance and repairs are more complicated to perform.
How Tankless Water Heaters Work
Unlike traditional water heaters, which hold a designated amount of hot water for a home, a tankless heater heats up liquid as it passes through. This can be useful, for a traditional model is known to quickly run out of hot water, forcing everyone to use cold water until its supply is restored. A tankless unit draws cold water into its system, transmits it around a heat exchanger, and pumps it out for future use. Don't endure freezing cold showers, upgrade to a tankless model today!
