There are several factors to consider when choosing a new water heater – depending on your specific needs and desires, you may find one type of heater more attractive over another.


When beginning the search for a new water heater, some of the main things consumers take into consideration are the cost of installation, the shelf life of a given unit, energy efficiency levels, and the potential (higher) cost of utility bills. It’s crucial to pick the water heater that best suits your lifestyle, overall budget, and water usage.

If you’re trying to decide between a tankless water heater and a more traditional water heater, there are just a few important things to consider. A traditional water heater differs from a tankless water heater in that it stores hot water in a tank; whereas, a tankless water heater uses a heat source to warm up cool water, as opposed to storing hot water in a tank.


Traditional water heaters tend to be a lot less inexpensive to replace and are cheaper to install, though they do have a shorter shelf life and can incur higher utility bills. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, are more energy-efficient (and thus save money in the long run), though they do have a higher installation cost.
