Tankless vs Tank Water Heater
by Aaron | Feb 1, 2017 | Blo |
Who really gives much thought to their water heater? You really only think about it when it breaks down. But here at Rapp’s, we think about them all the time, because it’s our job. And we want to show you how a tankless water heater may be the better option for you.
When it comes to water heating, there is one issue that we’re always asked…
”Traditional Water Heater vs. Tankless Water Heaters”.
To help you choose between the two, we’ve listed down some important information to help you decide whether to
“Tank or not to Tank”.
PROS & CONS
Factors that we need to consider when determining what is best for us between the two are:
(including Maintenance, Energy Usage Cost and Life Expectancy)
Energy Saving Capabilities
Water Heating and Storing Efficiency
Initially, the standard tank heater costs less. But we take the long view when it comes to saving you money.
With a tankless heater, you can save a bunch of money on your gas or electric bill because you only heat the water when you need it.
Yes, both water heaters last for quite a few years, but the tankless one will last longer. Maybe twice as long.
And tankless water heaters are very low maintenance, unlike your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend.
Standard tank heaters store a lot of water. But with a tankless one, there’s no need to.
And don’t you hate it when you run out of hot water in the middle of a shower and you’ve only rinsed and not repeated? With a tankless, heater, that never happens.
You’ll also use less energy because a tankless water heater only heats the water when you need it. And saving energy saves you money.
Those standard water heaters are big and bulky and take up a lot of room. Tankless ones are more compact and less intrusive.
So when you add up all the advantages, a tankless water heater kicks some serious butt. It’s the obvious winner. So check them out at Rapp’s. And tanks for reading.
At Rapp’s Does It All, we recommend tankless over a tank water heater in most situations. The down side is the upfront cost, which is usually about double, but these costs are justified in the long run with the savings on energy and maintenance, plus the typical longevity of a tankless over a tank.
We install several water heaters every day of both types, so if you would like some advice on your particular situation, our experts will definitely take care of you. Just give us a call at 803-740-1241 or email us anytime at email@example.com.
