Tankless vs Traditional Water Heaters: What’s the hype?

When it comes to heating water for your home, you have two primary choices: traditional water heaters with a storage tank, and tankless water heaters. Each has its pros and cons, but recent advancements have made the tankless option increasingly attractive.

Traditional Water Heaters Traditional water heaters store and heat water in a large tank, typically ranging from 30 to 50 gallons. When you turn on a hot water tap, hot water from the top of the tank is dispensed and cold water enters the bottom of the tank to be heated for future use.

While traditional models are less expensive upfront, they consume more energy as they heat water continuously, even when not in use. Also, they can run out of hot water during heavy use, and their bulky size takes up considerable space.

Tankless Water Heaters On the other hand, tankless water heaters heat water on demand, directly and instantly as it flows through the unit. They don’t store any water internally, except for what is in the heat exchanger coil.

Here are a few compelling reasons to upgrade to a tankless water heater:

  1. Efficiency: Since tankless heaters only heat water when needed, they use less energy compared to traditional models, reducing your home’s overall energy consumption.
  2. Longevity: Tankless water heaters typically last longer, with an average lifespan of about 20 years compared to 10-15 years for traditional heaters.
  3. Space-Saving: These systems are compact and can be installed in smaller areas, freeing up space in your home.
  4. Unlimited Hot Water: Since water is heated on demand, you can have a continuous supply of hot water, making them ideal for families or high-usage situations.

Why is it called a Water Heater and not a Hot Water Heater? The term “hot water heater” is somewhat of a misnomer. The purpose of a water heater, be it tankless or traditional, is to heat cold or lukewarm water to a desired hot temperature. Hence, the term “water heater” is more accurate since we’re heating water, not already heated water.

While both traditional and tankless water heaters have their merits, the increased efficiency, longevity, and convenience of tankless water heaters make them a worthy upgrade for your home.
