What Type Of Water Heater Is Best For My Home?

January 10, 2021

When you need to replace your water heater, it’s usually because of an urgent situation. For example, your current one is leaking and you need a new one fast. It pays to take the time to get the right one, though, so you don’t have any problems down the road.

Tank or Tankless

You’ll need to decide whether you want a tank or tankless water heater. A tank water heater can provide enough hot water to serve a large household’s needs, while a tankless water heater is more efficient but doesn’t supply as much hot water at a time. Tank water heaters are less expensive to install than tankless ones.

Electric or Gas

If you have access to natural gas, buy a gas water heater. A gas water heater costs less to operate than one that uses electricity. You should only choose an electric water heater if there isn’t any gas piped to your home. Gas water heaters cost more to install than electric ones, but you’ll save money in the long run.

Quinte Air Supply of Belleville, ON, installs water heaters. We’re happy to help you decide which one is right for your home.


When you buy a conventional water heater, they come in different capacities. You want to be sure to buy one that is large enough for your family. Otherwise, it’s likely that it will often be the case that someone needs to take a cold shower or not one at all.


Find out what the warranty is for the water heater you are considering. Since the typical water heater lasts from 10 to 15 years, try to find one with as long of a warranty as possible.
