Are you considering going from a traditional water heater to a tankless water heater? Here are a few things to consider with choosing the right water heater.
Other than the instant “limitless” hot water, the biggest proponent in the argument for the tankless is the amount of money that it saves you over the long haul. These are the two factors that weigh the heaviest on making the decision to go with a tankless system. But it is important that you consider how they impact you and your situation because it is definitely not the same across the board.
The first thing to look at is the instant “limitless” hot water factor. When taking this into account it is important to consider the following:
Basically, if you expect a large draw at one time (everyone rushing to get ready at the same time every morning or washing clothes and dishes and showering all at the same time every evening) you will either want to choose a higher gallon per minute tankless or stick with a tank water heater. It is more about needing the hot water now vs. needing it for an extended period factor.
The next factor that makes the greatest impact on the decision of tankless vs. tank system is the economics of the decision. Most people will tell you that the tankless is clearly the best decision overall for this, but again that depends on your personal situation.
There is a lot to consider when making the decision of tankless vs. tank water heater and most of it depends on your situation. There isn’t only one right answer for everyone.
