When you hear “water heater” what is it that you envision? If you’re like most people, it’s probably a storage tank full of water inside your garage or a closet that has pipes and gauges sticking out of it. You probably don’t know how it all works, but rely on it heavily anyway day in and day out.
What about when your water heater gets older though, and its performance or efficiency starts declining with age? What do you do then? Sometimes repairs may help it get by a little longer, but if rust and corrosion have settled in, it’s time to replace. Your instinct is likely to just upgrade to a newer storage tank system if you already have one in place, but this isn’t your only option.
Read on as we explore the differences, in addition to the pros and cons, of both tank and tankless water heaters.
