Here is a list of the major information regarding these appliances in comparison to the traditional tank water heaters so that you might make the most informed choice for your household:
longevity: Tankless water heaters can last up to three times as long as traditional water heaters – with a lifespan of twenty years!
Better Warranties: The longer life expectancy means a longer warranty – usually up to 15 years.
Energy Efficient: A large portion of your electric or gas bill every month goes to heating water that sits in the tank of a traditional heater much of the day, going unused.
Costly & Complicated Installation: Tankless water heaters are expensive – costing as much as three times more than tank water heaters – and require installation by a qualified plumber. However, some units may include installation with purchase.
Hot Water Splitting: The hot water will be split among all household uses, so more than one may be needed (for bathroom and kitchen) if your household frequently uses multiple appliances that require hot water at once.
