Conventional & Tankless Water Heaters

The term “conventional water heater” refers to a large tank that stores a large amount of water that’s already been heated. However, when the water is used up, you must wait for the tank to replenish with more hot water. A tankless water heater is just that, tankless. It heats water on demand to cut down on usage and raise efficiency.
