How do you choose from a tankless or a conventional water heater? Well, one is not necessarily better than the other. It’s your choice which one would be best for you and your needs. To begin, let’s identify the major differences between the two water heaters.

 

Conventional Water Heater

These units typically store 40-50 gallons of hot water. While hot water is in use, the unit continues to replenish its tank with cold water. Because of this, conventional water heaters can run out of hot water.

 

Tankless Water Heater

These tanks heat water on demand. When hot water is needed, cold water travels through a pipe through the unit where a burner heats the water. Tankless water heater delivers a never-ending supply of hot water. As well, these units take up less space and are good for large families. Unfortunately, these units can be pricy to install.
