They’re both good choices, it’s not a matter of which one’s better, it’s a matter of which one’s better for you. A conventional water heater typically stores about 40 or 50 gallons of hot water. When you use hot water the tank then fills back up with cold water which gets heated up and is ready for the next time hot water is needed. A tankless water heater heats water on demand, when a hot water tap is turned on cold water travels through a pipe into the unit where a burner element heats the water and it flows to the tap.

Tankless water heaters deliver a never-ending supply of hot water. A conventional water heater is a lot less expensive to purchase and to install than a tankless unit, however we’ve all experienced it, they can run out of hot water. In our area, water heaters can be located in the attic. If you have a tank style water heater and the tank bursts, you’ve got water flooding your whole house. A tankless water heater takes up much less space and it can last twice as long as a conventional water heater, plus you never have to take a cold shower. That makes it a good choice for large families. Tankless water heater installation costs can be higher, but the energy savings help make up the difference.
