Benefits Of Installing A Tank Style Water Heater At Home
If you are looking to replace your water heater, then you may be aware that there are tank style and tankless water heaters available. While the latter provides water on demand and proves to be energy-efficient, they aren’t always the right choice for every home.
Sometimes, you will want to go with the traditional tank-style water heater. Although it is an older technology, these systems have certain distinct benefits.
Benefits of Tank Style Water Heater Systems
Lower Installation Costs– Storage water heater installation costs are generally at least two to three times lower than tankless models. It means you pay less upfront when you opt for a tank-style heater.
- No Changes In The Natural Gas Line– Natural gas is the ideal fuel option for tankless systems, but the existing pipe systems may be inadequate to accommodate these systems. In comparison, a tank-style water heater can be hooked up to the current gas supply without any alterations, which means fewer hassles and lower costs.
- No Circuitry Changes- Even if you opt for an electric tankless system, you would still need to install a new circuit for it. However, a storage water heater can work well with the existing power load.
- No need for a high flow rate– This refers to the amount of water that you need to be heated at any given time. If your household does not need too much hot water simultaneously, the flow rate might be too little to activate the on-demand water heater. But storage water heaters don’t have a minimum flow rate.
- No waiting for hot water- Since a tank water heaters would have heated water stored and ready for use, you get hot water when you need it and don’t have to wait for the system to heat the water like in a tankless system. The latter can be inconvenient and also results in wastage of water.
