Tankless Water Heaters
A tankless water heater is one option when you need new installation services for a water heater. If you choose a tankless water heater, then you can enjoy hot water on demand. You will also have the benefit of an energy-efficient option that can save you money on your monthly energy and water bills.
A tankless water heater usually lasts around 20 to 30 years, which is double the life of a tank water heater. If you maintain your water heater properly and control the minerals in your water from corroding your water heater, then you can extend the life of your tankless water heater.
Compared to a tank water heater, tankless units are more of a financial investment and aren’t always perfect when providing on-demand hot water at a steady rate. Consider how much water you’ll use in your home or business and the square footage as part of your decision to have a tankless option installed. Once you have the right tankless model picked out for your situation, Mr. Rooter is happy to install it in your Gilroy home or business.
Tank Water Heaters
If you choose a storage-tank water heater for new installation, then you will save a significant amount upfront versus the tankless option. A tank water heater is also easier to maintain and repair when needed.
A storage-tank water heater is beneficial for homeowners or investors in a budget. You may also want to add a tank for a basement apartment or a guesthouse without a considerable expense.
A tank water heater typically lasts for 10 to 15 years and only requires standard preventative maintenance. If you want a less-pricey option for your home and don’t mind waiting for more extended periods for hot water, then a storage-tank water heater is a good idea.
You may also find that a storage-tank water heater is a great temporary option, and you can upgrade later when you want to invest in a different model that is right for your home. The ease of upgrading is a great benefit if you're going to sell the house later or if you want to upgrade to a larger tank because more people live in your home. You may also want to install a tankless unit later, which is simple to do when you swap out a standard water heater. Upgrading to a tankless model will also leave more space for you to add storage to your home!
Regardless of the new water heating system, you choose for your home or business in Gilroy, CA, Mr. Rooter is available to help you with any questions and installation services.
