Do I Need a Regular or Tankless Water Heater?
Clients often wonder if a standard tank heater or tankless heater is better for their home or business. What you choose ultimately depends on a number of factors, including:
- Cost: Tank and tankless heaters do not vary dramatically from each other in unit cost, but a tankless heater may require other components that raise the initial cost of installation.
- Efficiency: Tankless heaters are more energy efficient than tank heaters.
Overall, both upfront and maintenance costs must be weighed against savings to determine which water heater type is ideal. We’re here to help you make that decision—talk with us!
What Type of Water Heater is Best for Me?
- Concerned with the up-front cost? It is generally less expensive to install an electric water heater than a gas one, because gas piping sometimes needs to be changed or upgraded. Once installed, though, there is little difference in operating cost between the two types of tanks.
- Concerned with the longevity of the tank? Electric hot water tanks tend to last longer than gas powered ones, because they are not slowly being damaged by the flame of the pilot light.
- Concerned with how quickly your water will be heated? If you never like to be in short supply of hot water, a gas tank may be a better choice for you. Gas tanks heat water much more quickly than electric tanks.
- Concerned with environmental impact? Electric water heaters have no emissions, while gas tanks do make some contribution to pollution levels.
Ultimately, you must weigh your lifestyle, budget and any other concerns to come to a decision. Have more questions? The professionals at Island Plumbing can help.
