The Difference Between
Tankless & Traditional Storage Tank Water Heaters
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, use high-powered burners to rapidly heat water as it runs through a heat exchanger and deliver it directly to your faucets or shower without storing it in a tank. Tankless water heaters are usually powered with electricity or gas.
Traditional Storage Tank Water Heaters
Traditional storage tank water heaters, on the other hand, use an insulated tank that typically holds 30-75 gallons of water to heat and store the water until it’s needed. A pipe emerges from the top of the tank to deliver hot water to its destination (kitchen, bathroom, or other sinks).
Benefits of Installing a Tankless Water Heater
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
For many homeowners, considering a new tankless water heater installation can be a challenge. While there is an increased upfront cost, a new tankless unit offers plenty of benefits. Not only is it a great way to upgrade any home, but homeowners can expect:
- Reduced energy consumption and utility costs
- Smaller size for flexible installation in more locations (even outside)
- No tank to leak or cause flooding
- Up to twice the lifespan of conventional water heaters
- Possible city offered rebates and discounts for the installation of tankless water heaters (Call (951) 289-5514 to learn more!)
Compared to a Traditional Water Heater
Water Heater Cost Differences
Tankless water heaters do cost more than a traditional storage tank water heater, but tankless varieties last much longer – anywhere between 20-30 years, which is double that of conventional models. And because they are much more energy efficient, tankless models can save you hundreds of dollars on water and electricity bills each month.
