How Do Tank and Tankless Water Heaters Compare?

The traditional storage tank water heater has numerous benefits. Keeping its standing as the most widely used water heater model, it’s more affordable upfront for installation. Chances are too that the connections for a tank water heater are already in place in your Tampa, FL home, making the process of installation or replacement that much easier.

Another advantage of using the traditional tank water heater is that it guarantees instant hot water for up to an hour throughout your home, once you turn on the tap or appliance that demands it. On the other hand, a tankless water heater does have a slight delay from the time you turn on the tap to the time you get your hot water. However, the tankless model has considerable benefits as well.

For example, though they cost more than their traditional counterparts to install, they are more efficient—and therefore more cost–effective—in the long run. Since they do not fill a tank with water to be heated continuously throughout the day, you’re only paying for the hot water you actually use. This can actually reduce your energy bills by as much as 35%, in most cases. Maintenance is also typically easier with a tankless heater than the storage tank model.

Know Your Options

As mentioned above, there are many advantages to both types of water heaters. When the time does come for you to choose between the two for installation into your Tampa, FL home, make sure that you consider all the factors. It’s important to think about your budget, how much hot water you will want access to on a daily basis, and how much you are willing to pay for hot water month–to–month.

Be sure to contact the experts at IERNA's Heating & Cooling for help deciding which model is best for you. Consider your upfront budget in addition to your long term budget to find which water heater will work better for you than the other.
