water heater

When it comes to water heaters, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with all the different options available! Homeowners have to take lots of details into consideration when deciding on a product, such as water usage, budget restrictions, and even lifestyle preferences.

Our goal at Vern’s Plumbing is to provide you with stress-free services with little to no extra hassle! 

Water heaters are an investment which is why we put such an emphasis on helping you and your family find the right fit. Our knowledgable staff members have years of plumbing experience and are always happy to help repair or replace an old appliance.

When it’s time to get a new water heater installed, we can help guide you toward a model that will be efficient and long-lasting for a great price. Read on for more info on what sets tankless and traditional water heaters apart.

What’s The Difference?

Tankless water heaters stand out due to their high-powered burners. These devices can rapidly heat up water and deliver it straight to your faucets or shower head before it has a chance to cool down. Tankless water heaters are usually electric or gas powered and extremely energy efficient compared to other models. 

Traditional water heaters, however, are much more common in households and have an insulated tank that can store up to 50 gallons of water at a time. These models usually run on electricity or gas and use a pipe system similar to the tankless water heater. Traditional heaters also have valves that monitor pressure and temperature. 

How To Know Which Is The Best Fit

Still unsure which water heater is best for you and your family? Here are some of the best qualities of both tankless and traditional heaters to help guide your decision: 


  • Supplies you with hot water instantly 
  • Saves more money over time
  • Has a longer lifespan than most other options 
  • Won’t take up much space


  • Initial costs are very low
  • Maintenance checks and repairs are less pricey
  • Easy to replace

If your wallet can handle the strain of higher initial costs, getting a tankless water heater could add a lot to your household. But if you and your family are on a fixed budget, a traditional water heater may be your best option.
