Hot Water Heaters (Tank & Tankless)

Have you ever been enjoying a nice hot shower when, suddenly, the water goes ice cold?


That’s a terrible feeling, especially on a cold winter’s day. This is where we are happy to step in and get that water a nice, constant temperature for you. Pipeline is a full-service plumbing company that’ll do this for anyone in San Diego and South Riverside who needs hot water heater repair or replacement.

Do you know the 2 types of hot water heaters? And which one has more benefits?

There are two types of hot water heaters, tanks and tankless. Here’s a more information about each one:

  1. Water Heaters with Tanks: This is the most traditional type of water heater in which water is heated via gas burners or electrical heating. They can hold as much as 120 gallons of water, which is great for larger sized homes.
  2. Tankless Water Heaters: As you can guess from the name, this type of water heater does not have a tank. This newer type has many benefits, which you’ll see in the section below.

What type hot water heater model typically has the most benefits?

Though both types of water heaters have pros and cons, the newer tankless hot water heater has many straightforward benefits. For example, compared to a traditional tank hot water heater, a tankless water heater:

  1. Is Incredibly energy efficient, which makes it more eco-friendly and more cost-effective (due to lower energy bills).
  2. Takes up less space than a tank water heater because it is much smaller.
  3. Probably going to last more than 20 years. In contrast, most traditional tank water heaters last an average of 7 to 10 years.
How do you decide what hot water heater type is best for you?

Every home is different, so we’ll be happy to come in and do a completely free consultation to find out what solution will work best for your home. Your current one may just need repairing or it may be more cost-effective, in the long run, to have a new one installed. After seeing the property, a Pipeline trained professional will openly discuss the options and their costs with you. That way, you can hear their recommendation and thinking before making any final decision.


**It’s also good to note: We offer different options to make sure it gets fixed right. One option may cost less, but it can also mean it’s not a permanent solution. We want to give you the option that will benefit you and your home the most in the long term.
