Tank Water Heaters Vs. Tankless
Tank type water heaters have a typical life expectancy of 10 years and a standard warranty of only 6 years. With the hardness of our local water, often times, we end up replacing many tanks before they reach life expectancy or while their still under warranty.
Most tanks have an operating efficiency of around 60%, which basically means that for every dollar you spend towards heating your water, 40 cents goes out the roof through the vent. Tanks, however, do store hot water, so in the event of a gas loss, you would potentially still have one full tank of hot water.
Besides the obvious benefit of having access to endless hot water, Tankless heaters are on demand, meaning unless you’re using hot water, you’re not wasting any energy.
They are 97-99% efficient meaning your dollars are being utilized to heat water, not blow hot air! According to energy.gov, they have a typical life expectancy of 20 years. The heat exchanger has a 15-year warranty as opposed to the 6 with a tank.
Based upon these statistics, it is extremely likely that you’d buy at least 2- tank type heaters during the life expectancy of 1- tankless and possibly even three! They’re also a great space saver, often opening up closets and storage space that you never knew you had!

What Our Customers Say
Absolutely loved how the business communicated with me; they sent me a picture of the tech before he arrived at my house. Tommy, the technician, was very knowledgeable in answering my questions. Will be a repeat customer!
Outstanding service! Every step of the process was met with enthusiasm and a complete explanation -
from the time I contacted Half Moon through the technicians arrival and the work he performed. Tommy quickly diagnosed and corrected two issues for our household. He was a perfect representative to a company we have come to trust. Thank you Tommy and thank you Half Moon.
Sam visited my house the other day for some minor issues. He was on time, was able to quickly diagnose the issues, and get them repaired on the spot. His demeanor was friendly and professional, and he took the time to explain the details regarding my repairs. This isn't the first time I've used Half-Moon Plumbing, and this visit exceeded the already high quality of service I've come to expect from them.
The plumbing tech that helped us switch from a standard hot water tank to a new tankless unit really knew his stuff. He came out to do an initial inspection and estimate. He explained everything that would be required for the installation and the types of tankless units we could go with. The installation was done professionally and cleanly with everything plumbed and routed as expected. I know we're going to enjoy having a constant supply of hot water while saving on our monthly gas bills. Also want to mention that I read the Half Moon Plumbing newsletter every month. When you see the kind of situations they are able to resolve for homeowners (where no one else could), you can see how committed they are to solving issues the right way, no matter how difficult the task is. I look forward to using Half Moon Plumbing in the future!
