For many decades, homes had only one type of water heater to choose from—the storage tank water heater. You know the type: a water heater with a large tank of gallons of water kept at a steady temperature for immediate use.
In recent decades, the tankless water heater has mounted a challenge to this standard. More and more homeowners are choosing tankless models each year. The tank water heater remains the most common type, but there are many reasons to consider tankless if you have plans to replace your current water heater in the near future.
