When the time comes to replace your water heater, a common question that arises is whether or not to install a standard water heater with a tank, or to use the newer, energy-efficient tankless water heaters, which have been becoming increasingly common. There are pros and cons to both approaches.

This is the traditional water heater with tank that most of us have had in our homes, either currently or in the past. It holds water in a tank and keeps hot water ready for use at a specified temperature.
A more relatively recent entry into the market, tankless heaters provide hot water on-demand, heating the water as needed, instead of storing and heating it inside a large tank.
