In today’s homes, comfort, convenience, and efficiency are held in equally high regard. You need to be able to take a hot shower in the morning before work, and to run your dishwasher effectively at night, after dinner. You should also be able to count on your washing machine to get your whites clean. In order for all of this to be the case, you must have a good water heater installed in your home. Not only must this water heater be of solid design and build, though, but also well-suited to your own personal user preferences. For many, modern technology such as the tankless water heater is appealing. Don’t overlook the benefits of using a tank water heater in Vancouver, BC, though. Read on, and schedule your water heater services with Mr. Swirl The Friendly Plumber.
Why Choose a Tank Water Heater?
The tank water heater is certainly the old standby when it comes to water heaters, and most homeowners still use tank water heaters in order to heat water for use throughout their homes. This is no fluke, though, nor is it a case of people just blindly sticking to what they’ve always known. Modern tank water heaters have much to recommend them.
First of all, tank water heaters ensure that you have the hot water that you need, when you need it, even if you need a large quantity of it. While tankless water heaters offer nearly instantaneous hot water, they are also much more easily overwhelmed in high-volume situations than tank water heaters are. When you have an appropriately sized tank water heater, you won’t have to worry about draining your supply when using hot water for multiple purposes simultaneously.
Also, a few words on standby energy loss. This is the situation in which heat from the water within the tank transfers out into the air surrounding it, which is a big selling point for tankless enthusiasts. Modern storage tanks are extremely efficient, though, and you can choose to insulate many further, so standby energy loss is really minimal. Call today to learn more.
