Improving the Comfort in American Homes Everywhere

When taken regularly, cold showers help relieve pain, improve circulation, lower stress levels, reduce inflammation, and reduce muscle soreness. But let’s face it — who wants to wake up in the morning and hop into an icy cold shower? If that’s you, great! But for the rest of us — let’s take a moment to pay homage to our water heaters.

Besides providing warm water for comfortable bathing, water heaters help you wash clothes and dishes more efficiently and are, frankly, a modern convenience that most of us are unwilling to sacrifice. There are two main types of water heaters: storage tank and tankless. Water heaters can be powered either by electricity or gas. In this article, we’ll discuss the advantages of storage tank water heaters as well as the primary differences in gas versus electric water heaters.

Advantages of Storage Tank Water Heaters

Storage tank water heaters are appliances with large tanks used to store water. Cold water enters through the bottom of the tank and is heated. Once the water reaches a desired temperature, it is released through the hot water tap; the remaining warmed water is held inside the storage tank. Storage tanks are outfitted with insulative coatings and walls to help stored water retain its temperature. 

One of the main benefits of a storage tank water heater installation is its reserved supply of hot water. Although neither gas nor electric water heaters heat water during a power outage, storage tank units are able to release previously heated water, even if there has been an interruption in electrical service.

Storage tank systems are less expensive than tankless water heaters. They are also easier to install, which means hiring someone for water heater installation in Chino, CA, will cost less than hiring someone to install a tankless unit.

Should I choose an electric or gas-powered water heater?

Most homeowners choose an electric or gas water heater based on their home’s current power source. If you don’t have a gas line installation, you might opt for an electric water heater. While the initial investment is higher for a gas water heater, you’ll likely end up saving, since natural gas costs less than electricity. 

Whether you are in the market for a storage tank or tankless water heater installation in Chino, CA, the professionals at JIG PLUMBING are available to lend a hand. If your home needs to be outfitted with a new gas line installation for your gas water heater, we can install those lines, too. Connect with us by calling or texting 844-899-9054.
