Whether you have an electric or tankless water heater, chances are, you have run into problems at one point or the other. Unfortunately, most homeowners pay attention to their water heaters when the shower turns cold or when they notice their garage floor is filled with big puddles. These devices malfunction from time to time and when that time comes, you will need to make a decision on whether to replace or repair it.
Water Heater Basics
Electric water heaters come in 10-50 gallon tanks and are preferred by homeowners because they are energy efficient. Essentially, these feature a fully submerged heating element that allows for an efficient energy transfer compared to gas. The tank has sturdy insulation and often maintains a constant temperature of about 1200F – 1400F.
Tankless heaters, on the other hand, keep surging in popularity because they take up a small space compared to the electric ones. As the name suggests, these have no tank. Your water is typically heated as it trickles through the device. The other benefit of tankless heaters apart from space-saving is that they conserve energy by eliminating standby hot water. This means big savings on yearly water heating expenses. With them, you don’t have to heat water round the clock; you only generate it when the need arises.
