Water Heaters: Tank VS Tankless            

What is a tankless Water Heater?
A large bathtub or a 20 min shower can empty a 40 gallon “tank” water heater leaving you with no more hot water. But an energy efficient “tankless” water heater can provide a continuous supply of hot water as long as you want and whenever you want even while running the washing machine and dishwasher.

A “tank: water heater stores water in the tank and constantly heating and reheating stored water wasting energy and your money.

A “Tankless” water heater is designed to heat water directly without the use of a tank. It only heats the water when you use it. You don’t use hot water all day and night so why pay to heat while you are not using.


Tankless water heaters are more complex to install then a regular “tank” water heater.  But with the knowledge and training at Mac’s plumbing we have the skills to install the energy efficient systems correctly. Tankless water heaters can be installed inside or outside and “tankless” water heaters take up less space than a “tank” water heater.
