Staten Island, NY Tank Water Heaters

The conventional tank water heater is still an excellent system, even as other types of hot water heaters start to become popular. They’re durable and effective, and today’s systems can be highly efficient. However, you’ll need professionals to keep the system in good shape. That means flushing the system as needed, performing timely repairs to prevent system breakdowns, and ensuring that a new installation is safe and secure. So just how do these tried and true pieces of equipment work? Well, according to's resources on storage tank water heaters, "A single-family storage water heater offers a ready reservoir -- from 20 to 80 gallons -- of hot water. It operates by releasing hot water from the top of the tank when you turn on the hot water tap. To replace that hot water, cold water enters the bottom of the tank, ensuring that the tank is always full."

The Benefits of Tank Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters have gained popularity in recent years, but tank water heaters are still more commonly found in homes throughout the U.S. Tank water heaters are preferred by a lot of homeowners for many reasons.

  • They deliver hot water quickly. Hot water heaters start heating up the water right when you need it. That means it can take a little while for the water to get hot, and for that hot water to reach your tap. Hot water tanks store hot water so that it’s readily available for use.
  • They are cost–effective. Tankless water heaters save energy but it may take a long time for those savings to offset the higher initial cost of installation. Typically, a tank water heater is more cost–effective upfront, and that’s what’s important to many homeowners.
  • They are reliable. If you’ve never had problems with a tank water heater in the past, you may not consider upgrading—and that’s okay! Tank water heaters are durable and reliable, and today’s units are more efficient than ever.
