Comparing Tankless and Conventional Water Heaters


Tankless vs. Conventional Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are extremely convenient. Households do not have to wait a long time for a tank to heat up. One may wonder what the pros and cons of a tankless and conventional water heaters are and which option is best for you. We talk about it here and weigh the details for you.

Tankless is More Energy-Efficient

While a tankless heater may cost you a couple of thousand dollars depending on heat capacity, it’s more energy-efficient than the conventional heater. A tankless heater can also save you a few hundred dollars from your bill because it only heats the water when it is turned on, compared to all of the time with conventional heaters.

Conventional Water Heaters Require Less Maintenance

Unlike tankless heaters that require you to repair expensive parts if something goes wrong and needs a water pH level check-up, traditional heaters can work fine without being touched for up to a decade. However, it should not be neglected for it will not be able to maintain its lifespan and prevent overall safety hazards.

Tankless Heaters Give You Unlimited Hot Water and Have a Longer Life Span

Gone are the days where you have to wait for the water to heat back up! Tankless heaters offer an unlimited supply of hot water. They also double the life span (two decades) of conventional heaters that only give you one decade. Not to mention, they are more spacious and compact, as small as 30 inches in length, weigh less and can easily be mounted to the wall compared to your typical bulky conventional tank.

Older Model vs Newer Model Overview

Looking at both of these models at a glance, the tankless water heater is the newer, more expensive version that is more energy-efficient and provides you with hot water on demand. Although the conventional tank has a shorter life span, it is easier to maintain and does not require much technology to work or receive repairs. The tankless heater has a sleeker look, but you should check your water’s pH levels before buying to make sure they are compatible. Lastly, the conventional tank does have the older bulky look and can rust easily due to any leaks. The decision is up to you, but hopefully this summary has given you all the information you need to make the right choice for your home.
