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 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 call 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, but they are also more economical in the long run.
