Tankless vs Tank Water Heaters

When it comes to choosing the right water heater for your home, you can trust the highly skilled team of technicians at Brubaker Inc. We carry a variety of water heater brands to fit the needs of every home.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters instantly heat your home's water without the use of a storage tank. When deciding if a tankless water heater may be right for your home, there are a few factors to consider:

  • Energy Savings: Tankless water heaters do not produce the standby energy that regular tank water heaters do, which can save you money
  • Average lifespan is 20 years
  • More expensive initially but can save you money over time
  • May not be ideal for homes with excessive water usage
  • Typically, tankless water heaters provide hot water at a rate of 2–5 gallons (7.6–15.2 liters) per minute

Tank Water Heaters

Traditional tank water heaters offer a ready reservoir of hot water. As you use the hot water stored in the tank, cold water is pulled into the tank and heated to ensure that there is always a full reservoir of hot water at your disposal. Some things to keep in mind when considering a storage-tank water heater include:

  • The tank is constantly being heated to ensure ready-to-go hot water, which produces standby energy costs
  • Average lifespan is 10-15 years
  • Ideal for homes with high water usage
  • Conventional storage water heater fuel sources include natural gas, propane, fuel oil, and electricity

"Randol, Ray, and Joe did a fantastic job installing the Heat Pump and Water Heater. They were prompt and professional. The job was completed without issue. Randol walked thru the operation of the system simply and quickly. Everything is running fine. Thank you for your high quality service."

Stephen Moore

"We had Brubaker’s install new kitchen sink faucet plus two new bathroom faucets. Also replaced handle on bathroom toilet. We have come to trust Brubaker for our heating and AC service also. We had Don install a new gas hot water heater 18 months ago. All work was done professionally and quickly. I would recommend Brubaker for all your home needs."

Andrea Pardo

"Both of the service technicians that arrived were polite and very professional. The work was completed quickly, and Don took the time to not only explain how the system works, but also to show me what I can do on a routine basis to ensure system efficacy. I have been a customer for years, and always have a great experience with this company at every step. Employees are pleasant and professional. Exceptional customer service."
