Choosing the Best Conventional and Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless Water Heater Repair & Replacement in Collegeville, PA

Conventional water heaters and tankless water heaters can use various energy sources. The type of fuel or energy source you use will affect your annual costs. It also affects the size and efficiency of the unit. For many, your choice will be limited based on availability. Here are a few options to consider:

  • Electricity: There are models of both conventional and tankless water heaters that can run on electricity. These can work with most any setup as all homes have access to electric. While conventional water heaters that run on electricity can be more expensive to run, many of the new tankless water heaters also run on electricity. These are highly efficient models that tend to have low operating costs.
  • Natural Gas: Conventional and tankless water heaters powered by natural gas are among the most popular models used today. In most areas, natural gas rates are lower than electricity costs, therefore these models are typically affordable and efficient to operate.
  • Propane Fueled: In some areas that do not have access to natural gas lines, propane fueled water heaters are recommended. These heat water quickly. However, since the oil is stored in a tank, this must be re-filled regularly.
  • Geothermal Energy: Geothermal energy is available only in certain areas. However, where it is available, it is an extremely efficient and affordable source of energy.

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters may be a recent innovation, but because they are so useful and economical to run, they have become very popular among homeowners. While tankless water heaters cost a little more than conventional water heaters initially, the benefits and operating cost savings for these often outweigh the initial costs for many.

Here are a few benefits of tankless water heaters:

  • Energy Savings: Tankless water heaters only heat water as it is required, where as conventional water heaters continually heat a tank of water to a set temperature. Therefore, water is often heated only to sit and cool before being re-heated. In other cases, water that is already hot may end up getting heated again. This is a waste of energy.
  • Unlimited Hot Water: Tankless water heaters give a constant flow of hot water. On the other hand, convention tank water heaters provide only a set amount of hot water. Therefore, if all of this water is used, you must wait for the water heater to heat new water.
  • Less Space Consumption: Tankless water heaters are compact and can fit easily into small spaces. With tank water heaters, the large tank takes a lot of space. Also, the amount of hot water you receive, is directly proportional to the size of the tank.
  • Reduced Risk from Water Damage: Conventional water heater tanks may leak or burst leaving large amounts of water that can damage walls, flooring, and other belongings. However, while the fixtures and pipes on tankless water heaters can leak, these water heaters do not contain large tanks that can spill huge amounts of water at once.
