Tank vs. Tankless Water Heaters: Which is Better?
When considering a new water heater for your Columbia home, it’s essential to understand the differences between traditional tank-style heaters and tankless models. Each has its own set of benefits and potential drawbacks:
- Traditional Water Heaters: These have a tank that stores and heats water, typically ranging from 20 to 80 gallons.
- Tankless Water Heaters: They heat water directly on demand, meaning no storage tank is needed.
Hot Water Availability
- Traditional: Once the stored hot water runs out, there’s a waiting period for more water to be heated.
- Tankless: They provide endless hot water, heating water as needed.
- Traditional: Less energy-efficient as they maintain the heated water, which could lead to higher utility bills.
- Tankless: More energy-efficient since they only heat water when required, possibly lowering utility costs over time.
Installation and Upkeep Costs
- Traditional: Generally lower upfront costs but require regular maintenance to prevent sediment buildup.
- Tankless: Typically higher upfront costs, require professional installation, and need maintenance to prevent mineral buildup, especially with hard water.
- Traditional: Requires space for the storage tank, making it less suitable for smaller homes.
- Tankless: Compact and can be installed in smaller spaces, including on walls, making them ideal for homes with space constraints.
Remember to base your decision on your household’s hot water needs, energy efficiency goals, budget, and the space available for installation.

Our Word for it
Staying local made sure that I was taken care of once again. Called on a Thursday and they had someone out by 8am on Friday. Al did a phenomenal job! I explained the issues, he gave me 4 different solution options with pricing, answered all my questions, kept everything clean and sanitary, and was so kind. Job was completed the same day and was reasonably priced. As a single female I didn't feel like I was manipulated for extra services or overpriced, I was treated with complete respect. I'll certainly use them again!Amanda M.
The whole process was very easy. From making the appointment online and the confirmation via text message, they sent me a photo of the plumber who was going to come to my house. The day of the appointment the plumber called me to tell me that he was on his way. Upon arrival at the house he was very professional and courteous. He explained everything to me in great detail. I recommend this company 100% and they accept all kinds of payments plus a guarantee on the job for one year.Virna R.
Sam came out for the estimate and recorded everything they were going to do along with taking photos. Job was redoing feed and drain lines under the sink, and installing a new dishwasher and disposal. Called on Monday to schedule once the dishwasher was delivered, and they had us booked for the next day. Al showed up on time for appointment, completed all work quickly, leak checked, ran washer and disposal to verify correct operation, took photos to document, and packed out all the debris. Under $900 parts and labor, including new cutoff valves, new washer feed line, new sink trap, removal and reinstall of disposal and dishwasher, including supplies. Charged exactly what was provided on the job estimate. Highly recommended.Rob N.
I absolutely recommend Prime Plumbing. I called them after seeing positive Google reviews. The office agent got an appointment 3 hours after I called. The technician called me 5-10 minutes before arrival. Will, the technician was super professional and thoughtful about the space. He wore the disposable shoe protectors as to not bring the outdoors inside. He was mindful not to use machinery that would harm my home. He also answered my questions with a friendly and pleasant demeanor. The problem was fixed and I was so happy. 5 stars!Amara B.
A real person answered the phone at 4:30 pm and not a long voicemail. It was easy to schedule an appointment. Information regarding upfront consultation fee was provided during the phone call. Reminder text message was sent one day before the appointment. On the day of the appointment, an additional text message with the picture of the plumber who is coming was sent. Overall a very pleasant experience. Our plumber was knowledgeable and professional. He also made sure to put on booties which I really appreciatedPhillipines C.
