In older homes, it is common to find a traditional tank storage heater. They are insulated tanks and they typically hold 30-50 gallons of water. The tank then heats and stores the water until it is needed. A pipe emerges from the top to deliver hot water to its destination. There are storage tank water heaters that use either natural gas or electricity for their fuel. They also feature a temperature and pressure-release valve that opens when either temperature or pressure exceeds preset levels.
However, even though there are more inexpensive and energy-efficient types of tank storage heaters, on-demand or tankless water heaters are the most innovative and energy-efficient way to supply hot water to your home. Tankless water heaters last on average, 15-20 years. In comparison to a traditional heater, which only might last around 11 years.

In turn, saving you mone on energy.
