Tank vs. Tankless Water Heaters
Homeowners often ask us which system is "better" than the other: tank or tankless. The truth is that both system types have their own benefits and drawbacks, and you should choose the one that best fits your individual needs. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of each system.
Tank water heaters use large storage tanks to store and heat water, which allows them to cope with a large amount of demand before becoming exhausted. It also allows them to provide hot water at a moment’s notice, as they always have it ready. However, they are also less energy efficient than tankless water heaters, and take up much more space.
Tankless water heaters, by contrast, are far more energy efficient than tank water heaters. They turn on only when needed, and heat water as it flows to its destination. This both saves space and energy on an annual basis, compared to tank water heaters. However, tankless water heaters are more easily overwhelmed if placed under a lot of demand. There is also a slight delay between when hot water is called for and when it is received. Ultimately, you should consult with a professional to determine which water heater type is right for you.
Why You Need Professional Tankless Water Heater Services
Installing a water heater, no matter what kind it is, should always be left to a professional. Dealing with large amounts of water and electrical current can get dangerous pretty quickly if you don’t know what you’re doing. So, if you need tankless water heater installation services, call Western Sales & Services, Inc.. We offer a full range of tankless water heater installation services throughout Birmingham, AL.
Tankless water heaters may not have storage tanks, but that doesn’t mean that they’re immune to problems. If you want to make sure that your tankless water heater lasts as long as possible, call for preventive maintenance services at least once a year. This will give your technician the opportunity to find and fix issues before they become too much of a threat. If and when a problem does present itself, you should call for repairs as soon as possible. Water heater problems do more and more damage the longer they are allowed to develop, so the sooner we can get to the issue, the better off your system will be.
