Tank vs Tankless Water Heater:

The Great Water Heater Debate

When it comes to choosing between a tankless water heater and a tank water heater, there are many factors to consider.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the key differences between the two.

One of the biggest advantages of a tankless water heater is its energy efficiency. Tankless heaters only heat water when it is needed, which means they use less energy overall.

Energy Efficiency

Tank storage water heaters can be installed in a variety of locations in your home, such as a closet or garage, and do not require any special ventilation.

Installation and Maintenance

Tankless heaters, on the other hand, need to be installed in a specific location, such as an exterior wall and may require additional venting or electrical work.

Another advantage of a tankless water heater is its longer lifespan. Tankless heaters typically last around 20 years, compared to 10-15 years for tank heaters.

Lifespan and Durability

However, if a tankless heater does break down, repairs can be more costly than for tank conventional water heaters.

Tankless heaters generally have a higher upfront cost than tank heaters, ranging from $1,000 to $4,500 or more. Tank heaters are typically cheaper, with prices ranging from $1,300 to $2,300.
