What are the signs of a bad water heater?
- Age of water heater
- Not enough hot water
- Discolored water
- A leak in your tank
- Frequent repairs
- Oder coming from the water
- Increase in your monthly utility bill
- Low water pressure
Traditional tank water heaters typically hold 30-50 gallons of water and use natural gas or electricity. These usually have a lower initial cost and require less maintenance and repair than their tankless counterparts. However, they can have higher utility bills, occupy more space, and run out of hot water before the entire family has showered. These water heaters typically last 10 to 15 years, about half the lifespan of on-demand water heaters.
Tankless or on-demand water heaters save you approximately $50-100 per year and last between 20 to 30 years. It takes up about the same space as a shoebox or carry-on on your wall, leaving valuable floor space for other storage. Tankless water heaters only warm up the water that goes through them so that you can get hot water in 15 to 25 seconds. Tank heaters must reheat all 30-50 gallons every time you turn on the hot water. However, tankless heaters have a higher initial cost than tank heaters, especially if you’re switching from a tank to a tankless version.

Electric and gas heaters both provide hot water, but their pros and cons can help you decide which unit is suitable for your family.
Electric water heater pros:
- Efficient hot water
- Lower initial cost
- Easy hookup
- Wide range of sizes
- Higher operating cost
- Slower heating than gas
- Cannot operate during power outages
Electric heaters typically have lower initial costs because every home has electrical, but not every home has gas. They also have a more comprehensive range of sizes to offer point-of-use heaters to whole-home systems.
Gas heater pros:
- Quick hot water
- Lower operating cost
- Energy efficient
- Operates during power failures
- Higher initial cost if your home doesn’t have gas already
- Not as safe as electric models
- Shorter lifespan than electric
- Requires relighting occasionally
Gas heaters are all tank models and do not offer point-of-use appliances. These are usually used for bigger families that use more hot water. However, because it requires a gas line and an open flame, it may need to be relit occasionally and isn’t as safe as electric heaters. They cost more monthly to operate and are less efficient than electric water heaters.
