The main difference between water heaters with a tank, and tank-less water heaters, is the way they offer the water.

As a consumer, this might not sound like that big of a deal to you. The big difference here isn’t the water itself, but the price. Long-term, you will save money in operational costs with a tank-less water heater. The only problem with that, is that they cost more to install. If you plan on staying in your home for a long time, it’s definitely worth it to go with a tank-less water heater. If you’re just looking for a quick replacement, or don’t have much to spend at the moment, it’s better to try a water heater with a tank.
