Water Heaters – Traditional or Tankless

What is the difference between a traditional water heater and a tankless water heater?

A traditional water heater stores a certain amount of hot water in a tank and keeps it heated at all times. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, heats water on demand as it flows through the device. Tankless water heaters are more energy efficient and have a longer lifespan, but they may not supply hot water to the taps as quickly as a traditional tank water heater.

What is the advantage of a traditional water heater over a tankless water heater?

One advantage of a traditional water heater over a tankless water heater is that a traditional water heater can typically supply a larger volume of hot water at once. This means that it can better handle multiple simultaneous hot water demands, such as multiple showers running at the same time or filling a large bathtub. Additionally, traditional water heaters are often less expensive to purchase and install

  • Energy efficiency: tankless water heaters only heat water when it is needed, which means they do not waste energy keeping a tank of water hot at all times. This can result in significant energy savings over time.
  • Longer lifespan: tankless water heaters typically have a longer lifespan than traditional water heaters, which means they will need to be replaced less often.
  • Space-saving: Tankless water heaters are smaller and take up less space than traditional water heaters.
  • On-demand hot water: tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand, which means you will never run out of hot water.
  • Unlimited hot water: Tankless water heaters have no limit on the amount of hot water they can produce, unlike traditional tank water heaters which have limited hot water availability.

So, the main advantages of a tankless water heater are its smaller size, its energy efficiency, and the ability to provide unlimited hot water on demand.
