Conventional storage water heaters are still the most popular type of water heating system for your home. Storage water heaters work by releasing hot water from the top of the tank. Cold water then enters the bottom of the tank, ensuring that the tank is always full. A residential water heater can store anything from 20 to 80 gallons of hot water. A commercial storage water heater can store anything from 20 to hundreds of gallons.
With no stored water in your home, you greatly reduce the risk of leaks and catastrophic damage to your home. The mineral build-up is lower with tankless systems and they take up way less space. Tankless water heaters heat water through a heat exchanger and are 22% more energy efficient on average than conventional storage tanks. The Center for Energy and Environment says that “A 37% savings of water heating energy per household was found for replacing a typical natural draft storage water heater with a tankless one.”
