Tank Water heaters provide a large volume of dependable, low cost hot water. You can use propane, natural gas, or electricity to power your water heater. This is the most common way to heat water in the United States.
Residential tank water heaters typically store between 20 and 80 gallons of hot water throughout, usually at the factory setting of 120°F. The temperature can be adjusted up or down by a control on the unit. Tank water heaters are typically located in the garage, basement or attic.
Tankless water heaters provide the comfort and convenience of having a continuous supply of hot water that will never run out. Gas tankless water heater models are great as a hot water solution for homes with busy families, homes with luxury bathrooms and vacation homes.
