What is the difference between tank and tankless water heaters?

Differences between a traditional water heater and tankless

Water Heater InstallationIf you are looking around to upgrade your current water heater you do have a few options that can prove desirable. Of course, you can opt into the traditional water heater, or you might want to look into the tankless water heater. Both of these are going to work for your needs, but even though the tankless water heater can often be 10 times more than what you might pay for the traditional option, it has the capability of saving you a considerable amount of money in the long run; even more than what you spend on it initially.

Instant Hot Water

The first aspect of the hot water heaters you need to look into is how long it takes for the water to heat up. For starters, you probably already know how long it takes a regular hot water heater to provide water. This can be fine if you live in a small family, but when you live with a large number of other family members, you are likely going to run out of hot water and it can take a while to have the hot water come back. With a tankless water heater, this is never a problem, and you have instant hot water without ever running out. The tankless hot water heater is going to heat up the water as it passes through the tank. Once this happens, the metal coils that heat up internally can adjust the temperature of the water, which gives you the desired temperature.

Energy Consumption

A traditional hot water heater is going to use up a good amount of energy. This is because you are going to end up heating and reheating the same water over and over. Plus, boiling a large tank of water does take time and a considerable amount of energy. However, with a tankless water heater, the equipment only heats the water once as it passes through, so you are not wasting any water by reheating it twice. All of this is going to drastically help you save a considerable amount of money over the decade the water heater should last.
