From Philadelphia to Westtown, water heaters bring a certain level of luxury to homes throughout Pennsylvania. They come in many shapes and sizes, with different systems able to accommodate the needs of different households. Knowing the right type of water heater for your home can help prevent those uncomfortable cold showers or other situations where you run out of hot water. Let’s take a look at two of the most common water heaters, so you can decide which is best for your home.

Reservoir (storage tank) water heaters

These conventional storage water heaters contain a 20 to 80 gallon reservoir of water that’s constantly heated. This makes hot water readily available for the entire household.

Tankless (on-demand) water heaters

Tankless water heaters provide hot water only when and where it is needed. There’s no reservoir to keep heated, so standby energy loss is eliminated. The hot water is instant, heated up by traveling through the burner unit and coming out of the tap as a virtually unlimited supply of hot water.

So, which system is right for your home? Reservoir water heaters are great for homes with larger families that may use hot water at once in separate locations. Tankless water heaters for ideal for smaller homes, where the demand for hot water isn’t as high. Tankless water heaters can also be used to supplement an existing hot water system if you add new rooms to your home, or if your family gets larger!
