Southern Vermont Tank vs. Tankless Water Heater Guide: Which Is Best For You?

Monday, February 18th, 2013

HB Energy Solutions installs tank and tankless water heaters in Southern Vermont and throughout the region. Installing a new water heater is a big investment, and you want to choose the right water heater so that you get the most out of your new investment.

While tankless models do not have standby losses, there are many benefits to installing a new high-efficiency tank water heater. If you are looking to save energy and money on heating the water in your home, there are plenty of Energy Star water heaters that can save energy without having to upgrade to a tankless model. If you aren’t sure what the efficiency ratings mean, call one of our home energy experts to go over the different ratings with you.

If you are considering a tankless water heater, there are a few factors to consider. The type of fuel used to heat your home is one of these factors. Having an existing gas line will reduce the installation costs. In addition, installing a tankless model will depend on where the existing connection is located in your home. If your home is heated with electricity, then you can install an electric tankless water heater in a variety of places in the home, even under the sink models, since there’s no need for ventilation or gas line connection.

The size of your home and your hot water needs are other factors to consider. If you have a smaller home, tankless models may have enough capacity for all the hot water applications in the home because there’s no tank holding the hot water. For larger homes, you may need a larger capacity, which can be obtained with the right sized tank water heater.
