You probably don't think about your water heater until it’s too late. When that time comes consider that storage tanks cost less but tankless heaters save energy by only heating the water you draw. Needless to say that is good for your budget as well as the environment.
Before you shell out thousands for a tankless model, you may wish to see whether your old water heater can be fixed. A corroded storage-tank model is probably beyond repair, but a leaky drain or pressure-relief valve or a burned-out heating element can often be fixed. Rule of thumb: Consider a repair if the labor cost (which warranties often exclude) averages less than $50 per year over the years left in the warranty. Otherwise, buy a new one, especially if the warranty has run out.
What you save with tankless systems can vary significantly based on which one you buy and where you live.
