Which Water Heater is Best for My Home?
When choosing between a tank or tankless water heater in Bowling Green, KY the surrounding metro area, there are two important questions to ask. What is your initial budget for installation and what is your ongoing budget for operation?
A tankless system could cost more to install if you need multiple on–demand heating units and they must be installed on cold water lines going to your fixtures. The units themselves and the installation process will likely cost more than that of a tank model.
However, a tank model costs much more to operate over time, because it heats a large volume of water constantly, even when it is not being used. Other considerations you might want to take include the volume of water you want available to you and how quickly you need it. While tankless water heaters can heat water indefinitely without an empty tank to worry about, there is also the issue of immediacy. Tankless units take a few seconds or minutes in some cases to heat the water up so you will wait longer for hot water.
