Kensington, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/05/2019 -- As the trusted local plumbing company serving the residents of Hartford County, CT, Riley Plumbing & Heating understands how important it is for a household to have a reliable source of hot water. Recently, new technology has enhanced water heaters, allowing homeowners to choose from tankless or conventional versions of this necessary appliance. Now, the company is advising on the benefits of tankless water heaters vs. conventional ones and which option might be best for homes across the region.

Conventional, or storage tank water heaters offer significant benefits for homeowners. Not only are they extremely effective, but they offer low installation costs. Since they're more simply built than tankless water heaters, they are typically less expensive to repair and maintain. Common disadvantages of traditional tanked water heaters include their large size which requires more space to install, limited water supply, and a shorter lifespan than tankless heaters.

Tankless water heaters have their own set of advantages and drawbacks. For instance, since they're so small, they don't take up much space in the home. Additionally, since they can produce two to three gallons of hot water per minute, they provide a steady supply of hot water. They also can last for 20 years or more before needing to be replaced. However, tankless water heaters can be less effective and more challenged by output than their tanked counterparts. Tankless water heaters also cost more — in many cases double that of conventional heaters.
