Whether your current water heater is on its last leg or you just want to upgrade the appliance for something new and more cost effective, you realistically have two options: standard or tankless. Your standard, traditional water heater is the large, tank based heater. It works much like every other water heater you’ve ever had (only more efficiently).
On the other hand, a tankless water heater doesn’t have a tank at all, which in turn comes with its own benefits. You just need to decide which option is best for you. A professional plumber in Las Vegas can help you decide, but here are a few tidbits you need to know so you can begin the decision making process.
The Cost of a Water Heater
The cost of a new water heater may be the one and only bit of information you need to know. A brand new standard water heater is likely only going to cost you a few hundred dollars. Some might stretch a bit closer to a thousand dollars based on size and a few features, but overall, the standard water heater is the less expensive choice.
A tankless water heater will cost several thousands of dollars at least. If you plan on staying in the home for the long haul, a tankless water heater will pay for itself eventually. However, if you plan on moving in a few years, it may just be better to go with the standard option.
Investing In Your Home
Of course, you can always look at it on the flip side. If you are thinking about moving in a few years, a tankless water heater will increase the value of your property more so than a standard water heater, so it becomes a selling point. If a buyer is split between your house and one down the street, that tankless option may be enough to put you over the top.
Whether you’re stuck deciding on a water heater or you’re ready to have one installed, a plumber in Las Vegas has the knowledge and experience to help you come to the right decision and facilitate that decision every step of the way.
