Tankless vs. Conventional Water Heaters

Tankless vs. Conventional Water Heaters

Water heaters provide temperature-controlled water to your home. If they become corroded or rusty, they could compromise the quality of your water. Furthermore, they may malfunction or completely break down, causing you to be without hot water in your home. This would make washing dishes, taking a shower, washing clothes, and cooking very difficult. If your water heater goes out, our team has the skill to repair or replace it so you can get your life back on track.

Conventional Tank Water Heaters

Conventional tank water heaters work by heating water in a large, 40 to 60-gallon tank and sending it through the pipes to your faucets. They can use three fuel sources: gas, electricity, or solar power. When you turn on the faucet, the water will be heated and delivered for your convenience, but it may take some time.

Furthermore, traditional water heaters can be dangerous if not repaired or replaced when needed. Gas leaks in or around your water heater may explode through contact with the small ignition flame, and the water pressure in the tank itself may cause an explosion if it is not released properly through the safety valve. Traditional water heaters also take up a lot of space, and are not as efficient as tankless models.

Tankless Water Heaters

Unlike conventional water heaters, tankless models heat water on-demand as it flows through the pipes to your faucets. These systems can use either gas or electricity, and are 24-34% more efficient than traditional systems, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. This will help you save money on utility bills each month. Furthermore, tankless water heaters last longer than traditional systems - 20 years or more as opposed to 10-15 years for conventional units.
