Once you’ve installed an air conditioning system, you may wonder whether you have any other heating and cooling needs to attend to. The answer is yes –– if you want to be able to shower comfortably, use a dishwasher or wash your hands, you’ll need a water heater. Should you purchase a traditional water heater or a tankless water heater? It depends. A tank water heater usually holds 40 to 50 gallons of water, but you can find a smaller or larger heater if needed –– some models hold up to 100 gallons of water. Your tank heater will be powered by natural gas, propane or electricity, depending on which model you choose.
What’s The Difference?
Tankless heaters are significantly smaller than traditional water heaters, so if you’re pressed for space, this may be the most attractive option. Instead of having your hot water ready in a tank, tankless heaters heat the water as needed. You can run out of hot water with both tankless and tank heaters if you’re using hot water for multiple tasks at once, but you likely won’t encounter that problem with modern heaters unless you’re using all of your appliances at the same time.
