No matter the make, model, or type of your home’s system, we can service, maintain, repair, or install it on your behalf.
Tankless vs. Traditional Water Heaters
If you want to upgrade your water heater to a new model, you’re probably curious about the increasingly popular tankless water heaters. These are a great alternative to traditional water heaters, which store water and keep it hot until you need it, as they only heat water as you need it.
The benefits of a tankless water heater include:
- Improved energy efficiency because you don’t waste power keeping water hot all the time
- Reduced wear and tear and need for repairs due to running only when needed
- Longer service life, with many lasting 20 years or longer with routine maintenance
- Unlimited hot water if you don’t run more hot taps at the same time than your unit is rated for
Traditional water heaters, on the other hand, offer:
- Lower initial installation cost than a tankless water heater
- Full-temperature hot water, even with many taps at once — at least until you empty the preheated water
- Simpler annual maintenance due to the relative ease of draining sediment from a traditional water heater
For either system, the most important thing is getting a high-quality unit suitable for your hot water usage and installed correctly. A poor installation, fit, or product of either style could be a waste of money and a source of frustration.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are hybrid water heaters?
These systems are a standard water heater operating with a heat pump system. These are a perfect option to save energy in your Tampa Bay-area home.
Which is better: tankless or storage water heaters?
Both have their advantages. Tankless systems last longer, save energy, reduce water bills, and provide continuous, never-ending water. But they cost more upfront. New, traditional storage units cost less upfront, are much more energy-efficient, and come with six-year warranties.
