Even though technology has changed over the years, tank water heaters are still popular for a number of reasons. If you are considering replacing your tank water heater but don’t know whether to stick with a tank or switch to a tankless water heater, you should consider the pros and cons.

Tankless water heaters are able to meet the needs of families. Tank water systems still have plenty of pros, despite the popularity of tankless systems. One pro is that a tank water heater doesn’t use as much electricity as people assume. Over the course of a year, the actual amount it costs to run a tank water heater is minimal. They are also a lot easier to install and replace than a tankless water heater.

The cons may be obvious compared to a tankless water heater. One major con is that you can run out of hot water. You only have enough hot water to fill the tank. Once it runs out, you have to wait until the tank fills with water and reheats. Cold showers can be inevitable on a busy morning.

When you need a new water heater, whether it is a tank or tankless water heater, you need the facts. This will help you pick the right option for your family. Let High Performance Heating, Cooling, & Hydronics help you decide the best option for you.

How old is your tank water heater? How long of a shower can you take before the cold comes pouring out?
