Conventional Water Heater Installation Service

If you’re looking for a new water heater, you may have come across two types: tankless water heaters and conventional water heaters. While neither is outright better than the other, each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Consider the following factors to help you decide if a conventional water heater is right for you.

What is a Conventional Water Heater?

Conventional water heaters are equipped with insulated tanks and are powered by electricity, oil, or gas. Some even come with solar powered boosters. Because tank water heaters store hot water in the tank until it’s called upon, you don’t have to wait when turning on the tap.

Benefits of Conventional Water Heaters

  • Cost: tank water heaters are generally more affordable than their tankless counterparts.
  • Lifespan: conventional water heaters often last 10-12 or more years with regular maintenance.
  • Installation: tank water heaters are often easy to install.

Disadvantages of Conventional Water Heaters

  • Maintenance: tank water heaters typically require more maintenance by a plumber and may leak if not maintained properly.
  • Energy-efficiency: conventional water heaters are often less energy efficient than tankless models, since they’re working round the clock to keep water warm.
  • Space: because tank water heaters have a large tank, they can take up a fair amount of space.
