Understanding Tankless Vs. Traditional Water Heaters

Water heaters.  We all can’t live without them, but we seldom think of them unless they stop working.  We use hot water to cook, clean, bathe, etc.  We definitely take it for granted.  Did you know there are two different types of water heaters?  There are the traditional tank water heaters and the newer style “tankless” water heaters.  Tank water heaters store many gallons of water at a time and keep it heated all the time, but use too much and it runs out leading to cold showers.  Tankless water heaters never run out of hot water because they heat the water on the fly as it is being used, but there is a limit to how much volume they can heat at a time.  Read through this infographic provided by Professional Warranty Service Corp. and be educated on the differences, pros and cons of each type.
