Tanked Water Heater: You Still May Want One
Tanked Water Heater: It May Be Better
If you are thinking to replace an old hot water heater, you may think that a tank-less water heater is the obvious choice. You may wish to re-think this, depending on your situation. While there are certainly good reasons to consider a tank-less heater, there may be better reasons to keep your tanked water heater. The following are some reasons why you may want to keep using a tanked water heater.
The Cost of Installation
The cost of installing a tank-less water heater can easily be double that of a tanked water heater. The process of installing a tank-less heater in much more involved. In addition to water pipes, you must consider the installation of gas lines, piping, and meters. You may even need electrical upgrades if that is your source of heat. A tanked water heater cost much, much less time and money to install.
It May Take Longer For Hot Water
Getting hot water to your faucet or shower may be a slower process with tank-less heaters. If your tank-less heater fires up only when there is a flow of water, then there will not be immediate hot water. To combat this issue, you may need to install a circulation system along with the tank-less hot water heater. A tanked water heater has a reservoir which has a lot of hot water ready to go.
Analyze The Real Value
Tank-less water heaters are best for homes or offices that use quite a bit of water. If your home or office does not use much on a regular basis, then the savings may be extremely minimal when considering the cost of installation.
If you are wondering whether or not your home or office will benefit from a tank-less water heater over a tanked water heater, please give us a call and we can help you with the decision on the telephone!
