Tank Water Heaters: Pros and Cons

The tank water heater has a lot to offer. That does not mean it is right for everyone. If that were the case, there wouldn’t be such a variety of water heaters to choose from. When choosing your new water heater, you’ll need to weigh both the pros and the cons of that system. Tank water heaters, when sized properly, can stand up to even very high demand levels.

You may choose from an electric tank water heater or a gas tank water heater, and new hot water tanks retain heat quite well. However, standby energy loss, in which heat from the water heater transfers through the tank and into the air surrounding it, still occurs. Tank water heaters are much more affordable than tankless systems. However, they don’t last as long. Typically, you can count on 12–15 years from a tank model.

Hire a Professional to Install Your Tank Water Heater in Columbia, MD

There’s one surefire way to guarantee your new tank water heater will never function as well as it should, and that is to schedule your tank water heater installation with an unqualified individual. Not only will your system fail to function as efficiently and reliably as possible, but it will also fail to function safely. And remember, there are strict regulations regarding who is allowed to work with natural gas piping.

While investing in a good tank water heater and scheduling a professional installation will get your system off to a great start, no system will last indefinitely. Eventually, you’ll either run into a complete breakdown of your system, or you’ll decide to upgrade to a more effective, reliable, and/or efficient model. When you do, call on our service professionals for a top–notch tank water heater replacement.

At some point, your tank water heater is going to require repairs. Maybe your electric tank water heater is suddenly incapable of heating water sufficiently, or your gas tank water heater won’t keep the flames going. Whatever the case, scheduling prompt repairs will help to get your system back on track fast—and may prevent dangerous conditions from developing.
