Tank vs. Tankless Water Heaters

Many of you may be unaware of the fact that at Poorman’s Heating and Air Conditioning we not only take care of your HVAC systems, but we also take great pride in our plumbing area of experitise as well. We get asked on a daily basis about the differences between a tank and a tankless water heater.

  • Which is more expensive?
  • How much money will I save?
  • What’s the difference?
  • Does installation cost more?

Here are a few insights to the great water heater debate:

Tank vs. Tankless

Regular water heater tanks are created to keep your water hot for 24 hours a day, seven days a week even if you’re not using the warm water. The more energy efficient approach would be a tankless water heater which only gets your water hot on demand.

 Believe it or not, your tank style water heater causes you to loose 30% efficiency due to the constant heating and reheating of water all day every day. Your bills can definitely reflect this over time as well.

 Even though the original cost of the tankless water heater is significantly more than a tank style heater, you end up saving up to 50% on your utility bill! You can even qualify for a Federal Tax Credit through Energy Star.

 It seems as though tankless water heaters are no longer just a ‘thing of the future.’ They’re here and they seem like the best option for your water heating needs. …Not to mention they’re compact! Who wants a bulky water heater hanging around the house?

 If you’re interesting in going tankless, call in the professionals at Poorman’s Heating and Air Conditioning (260.422.3534).  Poorman’s specializes in heating systems, air conditioning units, plumbing services, geothermal and indoor air quality.  You won’t be disappointed with Poorman’s quick response and affordable, outstanding service.
