Water heaters are responsible for heating your water and supplying it to household fixtures and appliances, such as dishwashers, showers, and more. To find the right water heater for your household, it's important to understand the different types of water heaters and features.
Tank water heaters store water and heat it on demand, while tankless water heaters heat the water using coils, without storing it. Both gas and electric water heaters are energy efficient, but the annual savings you experience will vary depending on such factors as local energy rates, water hardness and your consumption level. Tank water heaters are generally less expensive and can accommodate high-demand households, while tankless are more expensive up front, but can reduce your energy usage by around 30 percent.
