Tank (Traditional) Water Heater
Tank, or traditional, water heaters have been used in homes for years. The great advantages of tank water heaters are cost and energy consumption. A tank water heater is about half the price of a tankless water heater and requires less energy to heat and keep water hot. The average life of a tank water heater is about 12 years.
Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters are the next evolution of water heater. They heat instantly and allow you to have as much hot water as you want. The trade off is that they are more expensive to install and require more energy to keep the water heated. The lifespan of a tankless water heater can be as long as 20 years.
