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.

Quick and easy, I called after lunch and got service the same day. Josh and Co were very professional, easy to deal with, and up front about costs. Great crew to hire and get things done with.

Grady was our tech this go around. He did wonderful work. He was professional, kind and completed everything in such a timely manner. Chris the scheduler is great too. We have used this company for several years now and we recommend them to everyone.

This is the second time we have used Mr. Drippy, the first was an emergency and they were out and had the (major) issue fixed and cleaned up in less than two hours from the time of the frantic phone call. Today Grady and JD came out assess and make repairs on a water pressure problem. They were on time, professional, easy going and informative (we talked a lot about gardening). They called the home office and we had several quotes and explanations of what was needed and where we could save money. We were offered discounts on additional services since they we already here but we never felt like we were being pressured to spend more than was needed to address the purpose of the call. JD and Grady were in and out quickly, the job is top notch, best materials and processes. I don't want to have to...but if we need to call again it will be the professionals at Mr. Drippy. Thanks Chris, Jose, JD and Grady!

Laura was wonderful, warm and professional. She got us on the schedule right away to fix our water heater, even though their schedule was full.Caleb came out and got the problem fixed quickly and professionally. He kept me informed about everything he was doing, and he did run into another problem while fixing it, so he had to go get another part.It was a great experience, and I would highly recommend Mr. Drippy to anyone who needs plumbing services.

Ron was great! I felt confident in his knowledge, pleased with his skills, and exceedingly satisfied with the job. He knows his plumbing and completed the work in a very short amount of time. Definitely will be calling him back to complete the plumbing in my other bathroom. Thanks Ron!
