Portland Plumber: Tankless vs. Conventional Water Heaters

tankless vs conventional water Heater in Portland

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.

If you have questions about tankless water heater or conventional water tank replacements, please contact the experts at 3 Mountains Plumbing.
