Coronado Water Heater Services
If this is your first time to have a water heater installed, or are thinking of replacing your old water heater with a new one, here is a brief overview of the two popular types of Coronado water heaters and their pros and cons to help you with your decision.
What is a Standard Water Heater?
A standard water heater is one that comes with a tank. The tank is filled with cold water which is then heated. Once the water is heated, it remains stored in the tank until someone takes a shower, does the laundry, or makes use of hot water in any other way. The tank is then refilled and the water heated again.
Standard water heaters are popular for many reasons, including low initial cost (the installation costing only about 50% less than a tankless water heater) and easy and inexpensive replacements. However, standard water heaters are also known to use more electricity, thus resulting in higher energy bills.
There is also a chance that the tank will run out of water, as is the case for establishments that makes use of hot water on a regular basis. Furthermore, standard water heaters are known to have shorter service life compared to a tankless water heater (standard water heaters generally have a lifespan of 10-15 years).
What is a Tankless Water Heater?
As the name implies, a tankless water heater does not have a storage tank as part of its component. With this plumbing appliance, a heating component (usually installed in a wall) heats up water only when somebody turns on a faucet or the shower.
There are many benefits to using a tankless water heater. For one, a tankless water heater is energy and cost-efficient, using up to 30% less electricity than standard water heaters. They also don’t need a large space to be installed, and they have a longer service life – twice as much as standard water heaters in general.
In addition, tankless water heaters deliver hot water on-demand, meaning you don’t have to worry about running out of hot water. The only drawbacks to using tankless water heaters are their expensive initial costs and repairs.
