Benefits of a Storage Water Heater
Designed to store and heat a large amount of water, storage water heaters are typically available in sizes that range from 20 to over 60 gallons. Gas burners or electric heating elements keep the water at the desired temperature, for fast access from plumbing fixtures throughout the home. Sized properly, they can provide plenty of hot water for a typical home at an economical price. Storage water heaters are still the most popular option in many areas of Chicago, as they are reliable, low cost, and made from proven, time-tested technologies.
At Black Diamond, we can help to keep your hot water flowing with storage water heater repairs, maintenance, and installations. To learn more about storage water heaters and their benefits, call (866) 350-4793 or contact our plumbing experts online.
Storage Water Heater vs. Tankless Water Heater
Storage tank water heaters offer a built-in reservoir of hot water for instant access throughout your home. Tankless water heaters have no storage, so it may take a few seconds to heat and deliver the water. They may also need costly electrical or gas service upgrades to fulfill their large, instantaneous energy demands, and they typically cost about twice as much storage water heaters.
On the other hand, storage water heaters do not last quite as long, about 15 years compared to the 25 years of tankless water heaters, and they are slightly less efficient. For many homes, storage water heaters are an excellent value, especially if you are replacing an older, less efficient model.
