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
