Which is Better For Your Home?
If it’s time for a water heater replacement in your Portland area home, you need to know the facts. 3 Mountains Plumbing of Portland has proven and successful experience with water heater replacements.
Overall, tankless water heaters are better for the environment and for long-term success and safety. Still, there are some benefits of having a conventional tank:
Conventional Water Tank
- Lower initial installation costs
- Should maintain hot water even if various fixtures are being used simultaneously (shower, sink, washing machine)
Tankless Water Heaters
- Lower long-term costs
- Take up less space
- Unlimited and continuous supply of hot water
- More environmentally friendly
3 Mountains Plumbing finds that many of the tankless water heater calls they receive are from customers who had them hastily installed by a home project store. Oftentimes, these are improperly sized which is why tankless water heaters tend to get a bad rap. However, if installed properly, 3 Mountains Plumbing believes the benefits of tankless water heaters far exceed those of conventional water tanks. Not only do tankless water heaters align with the green initiatives at 3 Mountains Plumbing, they are also more economical in the long run.
