Which Is Better, A Hot Water Tank or Tankless Water Heater?

GreenBox Home Services Have you ever been in the middle of a lovely hot shower, only to find an icy blast of cold water appear out of nowhere? Having a steady stream of hot water is essential for every home, but when it comes to water heaters, which is the right option for you? Typically, there are two types of water heater available:
  • Tank-type water heater This type of heater increases temperature through the use of electricity or another kind of fuel. Once the water is at the right temperature, it will be stored in the tank at a maintained temperature until it is needed.
  • Tankless water heater A tankless water heater removes the need to store water at a temperature. Instead, when you need it, cold water flows through a heating element that instantly heats it, giving you hot water on demand.
Which is right for you? Both styles of water heaters have their own pros and cons. Tankless water heaters are able to provide a constant and steady stream of hot water, while tank-types typically offer a higher flow rate. In terms of cost-saving, if you use less than 41 gallons of hot water a day, then tankless water heaters can help you save money. While tank-type water heaters are often quicker and easier to install, tankless heaters do tend to last longer. When it comes to finding the best solution, it all depends on personal preference and usage. If you are wondering which solution is best for your home, then get in touch with our GreenBox Home Services team today at (859) 278-0281. With years of experience in installing and maintaining heaters, our expert plumbers will be able to work with you to find the perfect solution for your home.
