How To Choose Between Storage Tank and Tankless Systems
If you need to install a new water heater in your Madison, New Jersey home, likely your biggest decision is if you should opt for a traditional unit with a storage tank, or if you want to switch to the more energy-efficient tankless system.
Like with any appliance or system in your home, there are advantages to adding each type of unit to your home.
For the traditional units, they can be more cost-effective upfront, with less expenses during the installation process. They can also be less expensive to repair.
However, tankless units can save you money in the long run. As a more energy-efficient unit, they can save you money on your utility bills.
Another factor to consider is the size of your house. For larger homes, tank units can work best to supply hot water to various plumbing fixtures, especially if multiple are running at once. Tankless systems are getting more efficient at supplying hot water to larger spaces – and they come with the benefit of providing hot water on demand so you don’t need to wait for the tank of water to heat up.
With pros and cons to each system, it’s important to determine what’s best for your household. Our experts can help you decide and will explain what you can expect with each unit.
