What is the Difference Between a Tank & Tankless Water Heater?

As water heating technology advances, so does our knowledge of available products. We can provide services for tank and tankless water heaters in Surprise and the surrounding areas. You will need to select the appropriate product for your needs and make an informed decision.

  • Tank Water Heaters - Tank water heaters generally hold 40 to 50 gallons of water and can heat the water to a preset temperature. Manufacturers of water heaters must install safety switches in order to prevent harmful temperatures.
  • Tankless Water Heaters - Tankless water heaters use an on-demand heating system. They can help you save on your gas bill because there is no pilot light that is left constantly running. Tankless water heaters also allow for constant comfort because they do not run out of hot water.

Below we outline the difference between traditional and tankless water heaters based on cost, water heating capacity, life expectancy, utility costs, and aesthetics.

Tank vs. Tankless Water Heater Cost

Have you noticed that your hot water flow is getting shorter and shorter every time you use the shower? It is time to ask how much it costs to purchase and install a new hot water heater tank storage unit. Before you call Before & After Plumbing and Drain or run out to a retailer to buy a new tank, there is another question you need to ask. How much will it cost to purchase and install a new tankless water heater than a more traditional unit?

  • Tank Water Heater Cost - The price depends on the size and life expectancy of a new tank hot water storage system. A 50-gallon tank with an 8-12 year life is averaging around $2,000 installed by a professional plumber. Shopping for non-branded equipment may save a few dollars upfront but cost you performance and reliability. Installing it yourself may also save a few dollars, but you are passing on professional installation by a licensed contractor with plenty of experience and education familiar with local regulations and codes.
  • Tankless Water Heater Cost - A tankless system varies in price based on expected operating capacity, whether the tankless system is gas or electric-powered, the condition of existing gas and electric lines, and ease of installation by a professional plumber. For the argument, we're going to say the price is the same as a heated storage tank of equal capacity at $2,000 fully installed. If significant structural changes or remodeling are required, the price will be more.

Water Heating Capability

So, what makes the two tanks different? The traditional heated water storage tank requires the water to heat before use. At an average of 2 gallons per minute and 8-minute average showers, the tank heater will maybe be able to provide three hot showers over a half-hour period. This assumes no sink or laundry hot water usage during that period. The tank will continually refill and try to maintain temperature. If you're lucky, a family of 5 may be able to shower in an hour, but the last three will probably not experience the water temperature they prefer.

The tankless system in our example is based on the capacity to heat 5 gallons per minute. We have chosen a system equivalent to the tank heater. Water is heated on demand at the pre-selected temperature. Five people using an average of 2 gallons per minute with 8 minutes per shower should all enjoy appropriately heated water. As soon as they're done, there is no reason not to wash a load of laundry. The water is heated on demand.

What is the Life Expectancy of a Water Heater?

The tank's life expectancy is 12 years with maintenance, and the tankless model can last up to 20 years with maintenance. Tankless water heaters are sleek and take up far less space if you were going to upgrade today; a tankless water heater is an excellent way to go. Studies show that tankless heaters save a small number of heating costs since water is heated on demand and not heated to be stored in a tank that requires constant energy availability to maintain temperature.
