Purchasing a new water heater for your home is a major investment. These days, the decision can be even more difficult because of the sheer number of available options. Here at Accurate H2O Plumbing, we can install any type of water heater you may want. We offer both traditional tank models and tankless heaters. However, you should understand the differences between each of your choices before you make a decision.

How Tankless Water Heaters Differ from Traditional Models

As the name suggests, tankless water heaters do not have a tank at all. They also differ from traditional models because:

  • They don't store large amounts of water
  • They can heat or cool water, as needed
  • Hot water is always available on demand

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

When it comes to the amount of available hot water, a tankless water heater has no limit. It doesn't hold a set number of gallons at any one time. Instead, it uses either gas or electricity to cool or heat water as it is needed. Since it isn't constantly heating water, you will see savings in your utility bills.

Tankless water heaters are also good options in new construction homes and can be particularly useful when you have limited space. If you don't want a tank taking up part of your basement, a tankless option is a great solution. Many people prefer the tankless water heaters because they can last for 20 years or more. Traditional water heaters often wear out in about half the time.

Deciding Which Water Heater is Right for Your Home

Deciding which water heater type will work best in your home involves looking at many factors. One determining factor is your family's water usage. It also involves measuring up-front costs against potential long-term savings. These are all issues our team can help you figure out.
