Tankless & Tanked: Comparing & Contrasting

To begin, we should take a quick look at traditional tank-based water heater systems, which come in electric, gas, and hybrid models. For most homeowners and business owners, the key benefit of a traditional water heater with a multi-gallon tank is lower upfront costs. Older technology is cheaper than newer in all applications, and water heaters are no exception. For the most part, you can expect to pay less for a traditional water heater than a tankless system, but the savings are not permanent. Due to their design, traditional systems tend to require more frequent maintenance, which means you could lose those savings as the years go on, depending on how much your system cost upfront.

With that said, newer, tankless water heaters have many benefits over traditional systems, such as:

  • “Infinite” hot water: Tankless water heaters superheat water with an electric or gas heat source as it moves through the system right when you turn on a hot water tap in your home. Since it is heating water on-demand, it cannot run out. On the other hand, a tank-based water heater stores a set amount of hot water at one time and will run out if you use it faster than it can refill and reheat. As such, tankless systems are ideal for large families that compete for hot water, such as for nightly showers.
  • Durability: The technology that goes into a tankless water heater is refined. Also, there is no water drum that runs the risk of corrosion and leaks. As a result, tankless water heaters tend to need less maintenance than traditional systems, and tankless water heaters often last up to 20 years. This is a predict product lifespan that doubles a traditional system.
  • Lower energy bills: Storing gallons of water and at a time and constantly keeping it at a set temperature means a traditional water heater will be working around-the-clock. This process contributes to your utility bills significantly. With a tankless water heater that only draws and heats water as needed, the natural result is lowered utility bills. Many homeowners see a 10% drop on their energy bill the month after installing a new tankless water heater!
  • Smaller: Perhaps obviously, a tankless water heater has no multi-gallon water drum. The much sleeker, space-saving design of a tankless water heater allows it to be installed easier and in more locations.
