There are many differences between traditional Storage (Tank) water heaters and the newer, smaller Tankless heaters and Atomic Plumbing in Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake is here to help you figure out which kind is right for you and your family!
Storage tank water heaters can be powered by a number of different sources such as electricity, natural gas, propane, heating oil and even solar energy. Tank heaters use this energy at a slower rate than tankless heaters, and are able to store some heat for later use. Storage tank water heaters can hold anywhere from 20-100 gallons. Unfortunately, once the hot water has been used up, it may take a while for more to become available.
We carry two brands of traditional tank water heaters, which come with either a 5- year or a 10-year warranty. This warranty covers the tank itself, as well as parts, components and labor for any repairs, and a replacement if necessary.
Unlike their predecessors, the tank heaters, tankless water heaters warm up water instantly as it flows through them, instead of storing it inside. This method guarantees a continuous flow of hot water. You may require more than one tankless heater in your home, which can range in distance from the central heater; or one large central unit may be sufficient for your needs. The tankless heaters take up less space than their more bulky counterparts and may potentially lower your energy bill and save you money.
