Making Certain You Have Hot Water When the Weather Turns Cold
When you think about the technological developments that have made modern life more comfortable, there’s nothing quite like the ability to have hot water on demand…to wake yourself up or wash off the dirt of the day with a nice hot shower, to get your dishes clean or to launder your clothes. Recent innovations in water heater technology now give you options—you can stay with the traditional tank-style water heater, where you heat and store a quantity of water to meet your needs, or you can opt for the tankless (on-demand) water heaters that only heat water as you use it. In this blog, we’ll look at the advantages of installing a traditional tank-style water heater.
Why You Might Choose a Tank-Style Water Heater
While it seems like everyone is converting to a tankless water heater, there are still a lot of advantages to installing at traditional tank-style water heater:
- In terms of cost, it will typically be less expensive to install a tank-style water heater. In part, that’s because your home is most likely already set up for it, so there will be fewer modifications necessary to pipes or electrical systems. In addition, tankless water heater systems are currently a bit more expensive than tank-style water heaters.
- The installation of a tank-style water heater is customarily easier. It’s usually a matter of disconnecting the old one, putting the new one in its place and connecting to your water lines. A tankless water heater more often requires professional installation.
- A tank-style water heater will ensure that you have some fresh, hot water if the power goes out. A tankless water heater will only give you hot water if you have electricity.
