Water HeaterWater Heater Pros and Cons: Tank v Tankless

We use a lot of different systems and appliances in order to live in the level of comfort and convenience with which we are so familiar in these modern times. Among these appliances is the water heater, which just may be the most heavily used appliance in your entire home. If you are ready to purchase a new water heater for installation in your home, you really need to take the time to consider your options carefully. You’ll need to use this system a lot, so it makes sense to invest in the ideal water heater for your needs. One question you’ll have to ask is whether you’ll use a tank or tankless water heater in Everett, WA.

Tank Models

The water heater that most of us are familiar with is the tank water heater. Tank water heaters are renowned for their reliability, as they always have a reservoir of hot water ready to go. If you have a high volume demand for heated water in your home, this can benefit you greatly. Just remember, though, that as efficient as modern tank water heaters are, they are still subject to standby energy loss. This means that some of the heat in the water stored in the tank will inevitably transfer out of the tank, and into the air surrounding it.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters have gained a big following in the residential sector, and with good cause. These systems are compact, so they can be installed in even very tight spaces. They are also very efficient, as their is no chance of standby energy loss occurring. Why? Because their is no tank from which heat can transfer out. However, these systems may also be more easily overwhelmed when using a lot of hot water all at once, and they are more expensive to purchase.
