What water heater should I choose? Tankless or Traditional

The different types of water heaters are referred to as traditional and tankless. The traditional, or storage water heaters are by far the most common, only because they have been used for longer.

More and more customers are recently opting for tankless water heaters because of their cost effectiveness. In fact, some homeowners are installing a tankless water heater to supplement their existing traditional heater which may not be doing as good a job as they would like.

With a traditional water heater, the water enters a storage tank and then is heated while in the tank. As you need, the water leaves the tank through pipes to your sinks, showers or washing machine. If you use too much hot water, you will have to wait until the water is reheated, which is a downside to consider. There is also the risk of bacteria within the tank, since the water sits and sediment could settle at the base of the tank. With a tankless water heater, the water is heated instantly as you need it, so there is an unlimited supply of hot water anytime you need it.

A tankless water heater will save you money on your power and water heater bills, since there is no evaporation of heated water and it is not working constantly to keep your water heated. A tankless water heater will also last five to ten years longer than a traditional heater, so there is also a cost savings there. If you decide that a tankless water heater is the best for you, you can have it installed almost anywhere and it will save considerable space in your closet or garage that you can now use for storage.
