The Differences Between Tank and Tankless Water Heaters

Monday, October 11th, 2021

Most homeowners in our area have tank water heaters. For over a century, this has been the most common way to heat the water of a home. The water gets funneled into a tank system that sits in a convenient area of your house while it heats up from an electric coil or a gas burner. Then, this water sits on standby ready for use whenever you need it. It’s safe, effective, and tank water heaters are extremely affordable.

That being said, they’re not the only way to heat your home’s water. In fact, there’s a new type of water heater that homeowners are turning to in droves. Tankless water heaters, or “on-demand” water heaters, represent a new way of thinking about water heating technology that takes energy and fuel efficiency into account.

Our team provides water heater services in Meridian, ID, and we can get you set up with either system. Keep reading to discover which water heating unit is right for your home.
