Standard Hot Water Heater and Tankless Hot Water Heater
To have a tank or not have a tank that is the question!
The difference between the two water heaters is mainly that one uses a storage tank and the other does not. Tankless water heaters are sometimes referred to as instantaneous hot water heaters or demand water heaters. They are small in size, and provide continuous hot water. These units are made to make hot water by pushing water through heater coils, which heat the water and send it directly to where you need it. These systems are made to last much longer than the traditional tank heaters, up to two times longer life span!
Tankless water heaters are known to help save energy, and can save you up to 40% on
your water bill. Another great feature is not using water that has been sitting in a storage unit with accumulated rust and scale. Instead using fresh water straight from your water source to your bath, sink, or shower. Tankless water heaters take up significantly less room than traditional water heaters and can be mounted on a wall outdoors or indoors
Standard water heaters have been used in homes for many years. There is a large storage tank that holds your hot water for when you need it. While using this system, you will run out of hot water, and will have to wait for the water to warm up. They are not very energy efficient, and take up a lot of space in your home. Standard water heaters are significantly less expensive then tankless, but don’t offer the same energy saving benefits
When choosing between the two you must keep in mind the cost and your own homes needs.
