Pros & Cons of Conventional Water Heaters

Pros:

  • Let’s say your power goes off, there is a blackout and you want to take a shower, you’ll still have about 50 gallons of hot water left over as oppose to a tankless water heater, as soon as there is a blackout the hot water stops running immediately.

 

  • The Initial cost of a traditional water heater can be half the price than a tankless water heater

 

  •   It’s not that complicated when installing it so therefore there will be fewer mistakes

 

  • Conventional water heaters are sufficient with most climates

Cons:

  • Water is always being heated no matter what, therefore energy is always being used and wasted, this is recognized as standby heat loss

 

  • Due to the fact that it is a big appliance, it does take up a good amount of space in a person’s home

 

  • Put yourself at risk for water damage, keeping a large amount of water in a tank that can corrode just spells DANGER. Not keeping up with your maintenance, the tank can eventually fail and can lead to bad water damage.. and these jobs are E-X-P-E-N-S-I-V-E.  

Pros & Cons of Tankless Water Heaters

Pros:

  • Saves money in the long-term

 

  • Doesn’t take up too much space

 

  • Lasts double than a conventional water heater, we’re talking 20 years+

 

  • We like to call it HWOD… Hot Water On Demand. It’s there whenever you need it 

CONS:

  • The Initial cost can be a whopping $3,500 just to get it installed, maybe, even more, depending on the model that you get.

 

  • Replacing your traditional one for your tankless system can be a hassle to take out and can further the cost even more just for the labor. 

 

  • When taking showers and doing laundry at the same time can cause your tankless water heaters to fail

It can be a little difficult to this especially if you’re human and want to be in the shower for a long time and think about life and if you got a conventional water heater. The best way though is by taking shorter showers & shutting off your water heater when you leave from home. 

All water heaters have a rating plate that implements important data such as the model and the serial numbers. What will be on there is like the Manufacturer’s name, length of warranty, gallon capacity, etc.
