Water Heater Repair

Tank Storage vs. Tankless Water Heaters

If your current water heater is over eight years old, then it should be time for a new one. First, you’ll want to decide which type of water heater suits you: tank storage or tankless.

Here are some important facts that you should know about traditional storage water heaters:

  • With tank storage, water is kept and maintained at a warm temperature. When you turn on hot water anywhere in your home, it gets pulled directly from the tank, while cold water replaces it and gets heated again.
  • When purchasing, you must choose between gas or electric: this depends on the utility options in your home. Tank storage works the same whether you use gas or electric, but they have different benefits depending on your budget.
  • A tank heater must be the right size for your household: the larger the family, the larger the tank. Bob Larson Plumbing can help determine how much water you’ll need to stay hot during peak hours.
  • Once you’ve decided on the type and size of your new heater, it’s time for “out with the old, and in with the new.” We’ll haul away old heaters and install the new one in only a few hours. This can all be done with minimal disruption of your family’s routine. 

SHOULD I CHANGE TO A TANKLESS WATER HEATER?

If you’re interested in replacing your old water heater with a new tankless water heater, you should reach out to our water heater repair plumbers in Tacoma to discuss whether or not it’s right for you. We have decades of experience installing water heaters in homes and businesses in Tacoma and will help you determine the best course of action.

If you are interested in a tankless water heater, the following information will help you decide:

  • Instead of storing and maintaining water, tankless systems simply heat water as you use it, saving money in utility costs. While they’re more to purchase and install, in the long run, they’ll save you money.
  • If you have a smaller home or household which uses less water, a tankless water heater may be right for you.
  • When installing a tankless unit, electrical renovations may need to be added in each room with a water fixture, such as the kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms.
  • After removing your old tank, plumbing and electrical installation for your new tankless heater could take a day or a little longer. We’ll schedule the project, so it works right with you, leaving minimal interruption with your family’s routine.
