Many homeowners ask us which kind of hot water heater to install – a traditional water heater with a large tank or tankless water heater. The answer is, it depends on what you want in your Seattle Washington home. Both deliver hot water, but each has specific advantages and disadvantages. Here are a few of the pros and cons of a conventional tank water heater:
Cost – traditional tank style water heaters have a lower initial purchase price
Power Outage – if there is an electrical power outage and you have a gas powered water heater, you will still have hot water
Efficiency – tank style water heaters are less energy efficient than tankless water heaters
Supply – once you use all of the available water stored in the tank, it takes time to heat more water
Freshness – the water you use sits in a tank with corrosion and rust
Space – the storage tank itself takes up much more floor space than a tankless water heater
Leaks – the tank can leak
Tankless Hot Water Heater Installation
One of the biggest advantages of tankless water heaters is that you never run out of hot water in your Seattle home and never have to wait for more to be heated. It’s always hot and ready to use. Tankless hot water heaters use less energy because they are not working 24/7 to keep a large tankful of water heated, and are therefore more environmentally friendly. They also take up less floor space for they are about the size of a small suitcase and are attached to a wall.
Another advantage is that tankless water heaters have longer lifespans than traditional water heaters. Traditional water heaters last 10-15 years, while tankless water heaters last 15-20. One of the only disadvantages to tankless water heaters is the upfront price for purchase and installation of your Seattle Washington home. They cost about three times what a traditional water heater costs to install, but you can recoup the costs because they are a more efficient water heating solution.
As you can imagine, the installation process is completely different for a tankless water heater. Our Seattle plumbing technicians are skilled with either tank or tankless hot water heater service, repair, and installation.
