Traditional and Tankless Water Heater

There are two types of water heaters popular today, namely traditional water heaters with storage tanks, and tankless hot water heaters, which do not have a storage tank.

As a homeowner, you’re probably familiar with traditional water heaters. These water heater units stand between four and five feet tall and are shaped like a tube with a flat bottom. These water heaters tend to be large and set on floors. The reason traditional water heaters take up floor space is because of their storage tanks, which can be quite heavy. These are used to hold and heat water to a certain temperature. Since the water must maintain the desired thermostat setting, traditional water heaters periodically turn themselves on, even when hot water is not needed in the home. For this reason, traditional hot water heater units tend to cost more to own than a tankless hot water heater. However, traditional hot water heaters are less expensive to install when compared to tankless hot water heaters.

Tankless Water Heaters

A tankless water heater does not contain water storage tanks, which means they can be wall-mounted, and they take up less space. Water is heated through a system of heating elements and copper tubing. When a washer, dishwasher, faucet or shower is turned on, water starts flowing through the tankless hot water heater. As the water moves through the copper tubing, it is heated by the heating elements so that it is the desired temperature once it leaves the water heater and travels through the pipes. Tankless hot water heaters tend to last about eight years longer than traditional hot water heaters because they do not have storage tanks that can corrode, rust and leak. They are also less costly to own for the long term because water is only heated when it is needed.
