Tankless vs. Traditional Water Heaters: Which One Is Right For You?

When it’s time for you to get a new water heater, our Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers recommend that you compare traditional and tankless water heaters before you decide to just simply replace your existing model with the same type. And while most homes use the traditional tank model, there are definitely some bonuses to switching to a tankless unit.

Traditional Water Heater

As you might know, a traditional water heater works by preheating and storing a specified number of gallons of water inside the tank. As a result, there is a limited supply of hot water. Once this heated water is used up, the tank will then need to refill and reheat in order to produce more hot water.

Tankless Water Heater

Unlike a traditional water heater, a tankless unit works by using a gas or electric heating source to warm the water up. By providing hot water when you need it instead of storing it, tankless units do not limit the amount of available hot water. Additionally, these units do not take up as much space, tend to last longer, and can even help you save money on your energy bill. However, they do cost more to both purchase and install than their traditional counterparts.

And while traditional water heaters are less expensive to replace and install, they do use significantly more energy and tend to not last as long.
