Ensure You Install a Sufficiently Sized UnitIf your current water heater struggles to provide enough hot water, there are two options. You can upgrade to a larger tank-style water heater, or convert to a newer, tankless style water heater.
Tankless or Conventional Water Heater?While tank water heaters have the lowest initial purchase price, they typically have a shorter lifespan and use more energy by having to keep a large volume of water hot continuously. Installing a water heater blanket can reduce heat loss and lower energy use.
Tankless water heaters heat water only when it's needed, meaning less energy is used and there is a continuous supply of hot water. While they are more expensive to install, they typically last more than 20+ years and can save up to 34 percent on energy costs.
