Storage Tank Water Heaters

This is the most common type of water heater.  These conventional water heaters have a storage tank that holds a reservoir of hot water to be used when needed. Since the water is constantly heated throughout the day, it’s a good idea to insulate your water heater tank so that you do not lose heat energy.

Tankless (On-Demand) Water Heaters

Since the water is heated directly, you can save space in your home and you will never run out of hot water. Since you are not constantly maintaining hot water inside of a tank, you can save on your home energy costs. However, it is important to note that tankless water heaters do not provide instant hot water and they do have a higher upfront cost.
