Conventional Tank Water Heater: Conventional water heaters store water in a tank and are available in a variety of gallon capacities. Electric or gas energy is required to maintain the water at a set temperature until a faucet is turned on and water is pulled through the pipe. A conventional electric or gas water heater should last about 8+ years. newer conventional water heaters are more energy efficient than older models. A high-efficiency model can reduce water heating bills by about 7%.
Tankless Water Heater: A tankless water heater is generally considered more energy efficient because they heat water only as it is needed. When the water is turned on in the house, the heater goes to work and supplies continuous hot water. A tankless water heater often requires less space and can hang on a wall, but may require larger gas lines, special venting or additional electric circuits that add to the upfront costs. However, a tankless water heater has a life expectancy of 15-20 years and may reduce water heating bills by as much as 30%.
