Types of Water Heaters

Tank Water Heaters

Tank water heaters are the traditional water heaters found in most homes. They mainly consist of a storage tank which is a large, standing tube filled with water. Typically, they’re connected to your home’s natural gas line and a pilot light provides heat for the water, but there are also electric tank water heaters. Traditional tank water heaters have a lifespan of 8-12 years.

Tankless Water Heaters

As the name implies, tankless water heaters don’t have a tank. Instead, they look like a box mounted on the wall. They provide “instant hot water”, heating the water as it passes through the pipes inside instead of keeping an entire 30-50 gallon tank of water hot at all times. Tankless water heaters are incredibly energy efficient because you only heat water as it’s needed. They run off of electricity or natural gas. Tankless water heater installation can be a cost-effective solution because they help save energy and they can last up to 15 years.


Can I replace my water heater myself?

Some homeowners with a lot of DIY experience may be able to install a new water heater themselves. However, water heater replacement involves complex connections to water and gas lines. Professional water heater installation by a licensed HVAC company or plumber is recommended to ensure safety and make sure building codes are followed.

What type of water heater should I get?

Choosing the best type of water heater for your home depends on the size of your household, your budget, and how much hot water you need access to at once. Tank models are affordable but they only come in specific capacities. Tankless water heaters cost more upfront but they provide endless hot water access and a longer lifespan. Deciding between a tank vs tankless water heater can be a tough call, but we can help you decide which option is best for your budget.

How much does it cost to replace a water heater?

Installation costs for a new water heater depend on factors like the size and type of water heater you choose. A more complex replacement will cost more. Professional water heater replacement should include labor, permits and possibly disposal fees.
