When you’re looking for a new water heater, it’s important to find the one that is right for you and your home. With so many water heaters out there these days, it’s easy to feel confused or frustrated because you don’t know what to buy.

If you have any questions when it comes to water heater installation or replacement, you can always reach out to our Manassas plumbers, check out our “What You Need to Know About Water Heater Replacements” blog post, or you can simply keep reading.

Here are some things you should consider when trying to decide between a conventional tanked water heater and a tankless water heater!

The Pros and Cons of a Conventional Water Heater

Conventional water heaters are less expensive to buy and install, and repairs are also usually cheaper. However, you have to replace these water heaters more often, so the costs may balance out depending on your system and your home’s setup.

Conventional water heaters are also more expensive to use. Since you’re heating water and keeping it hot, you have a nearly-constant drain on energy, which you pay for every month.

These water heaters only hold so much water. If you need more water than the tank holds, you have to wait for it to fill up and heat again.

The Pros and Cons of a Tankless Water Heater

A tankless hot water heater is more expensive to purchase, install, and repair, but it costs less in energy costs and you don’t have to replace the unit as often. If you choose one of these, you may also have to pay some initial costs to move pipes around so it will work with your system.

The tankless hot water heater is smaller than the conventional version, so you don’t have to worry if you don’t have a lot of space. If you have a conventional setup, though, you may end up with extra space that you can’t really use.

A tankless water heater can provide you with as much hot water as you need because it heats as you use water. If you frequently run out of hot water at home, this may be the best option for you.

    We woke up on this cold morning with a broken furnace. Called Turners and they were out within a couple hours, found the issue, and repaired immediately. So pleased we won’t have to suffer the cold with no heat! Tim was awesome, super friendly, and would welcome his work anytime!
