What Kind of Hot Water Tank is Right For You?

Tankless models and traditional tanks both have their advantages and disadvantages. Here are some of the things you should consider.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are small units that attach to the wall in your basement. The water pipe passes over a burner, is heated immediately, and then is delivered wherever it is needed in your home.

The Advantages:

  • Endless hot water. You’ll never run out of hot water with a tankless model. For larger homes and families, this can be a real help.
  • Energy efficiency. Tankless models will cost you less for every litre of water heated. This is largely because you’re not paying to heat water you’re not using, for example in the middle of the night. The most efficient models, called condensing tankless water heaters, recirculate heat to use every last BTU (British Thermal Unit) of heat generated.
  • Longer working life. Tankless models last at least 20 years, and longer with good maintenance.
  • No basement flooding risk. Hot water tanks are famous for flooding basements when they get to old and holes develop. Because tankless models don’t have large reservoirs and they do have excellent shut off valves, there’s almost no risk of flooding should a breakdown occur.
  • Saves space. Tankless water heaters can be attached to a wall, out of the way. This is a huge improvement over tanks, which occupy a large amount of floor space and are frequently sited inconveniently in the middle of basements.

The Disadvantages:

  • Up-front cost. Tankless models to cost more to purchase and install than tanks. If your gas hookup is already set for a tankless model, then of course it’s just the purchase price.
  • Maintenance is a must. Many hot water tank owners get by for a while without doing proper maintenance. With tankless models, they should be checked every year and any hard water scale buildup removed.

A Hot Water Tank May Be Right For You If:

  • You have a large family, and are frustrated that you’re constantly running out of hot water.
  • You intend to stay in your home for many years, and will be around to enjoy the energy savings when they pay for the installation cost.
  • There is often no one at home, and no need to keep heating hot water you’re not using.
  • You have a small basement or utility area, and every inch counts.

Hot Water Tanks

You’re probably very familiar with the standard hot water tank – it’s a large cylinder connected to your water supply. The water is heated by a flame at the bottom of the tank, and the water is kept at a constant temperature until needed.


  • Lower installation cost. As this is an older technology, most homes are already set up for a hookup to a water tank. Tanks themselves are also less expensive.


  • Less efficient. A water tank keeps working to maintain the stored water at the right temperature.
  • Flooding risk. When hot water tanks get old and corroded, the bottom can develop leaks or fall out entirely. This often results in a flood.
  • You’ll need to replace a tank more often. The average tank lasts 10 – 15 years, as opposed to 20+ for a tankless model.
  • Takes up more room. A water tank requires over a dozen square feet to allow for the tank itself and the area around it which needs to remain clear for safety and servicing.

A Hot Water Tank Would Be The Best Solution For You If:

  • You’re on an extremely tight budget.
  • You don’t intend to stay in your home long term.
