How do Noritz’s tankless water heaters compare to their tanked models, and which type tends to have more issues?


James Thompson, Water Heater Repair Expert

Noritz’s tankless water heaters and tanked models differ in several ways. Tankless models heat water on demand, providing a continuous supply of hot water, while tanked models store and heat a large volume of water. This makes tankless heaters more energy-efficient, but they may require a larger upfront investment. Tanked heaters, on the other hand, are less expensive initially but can incur higher energy costs over time.

As for reliability, both types have their own potential issues. Tankless models can be prone to mineral build-up, which can affect their efficiency and lifespan. Tanked models, however, can suffer from rust and sediment build-up, leading to potential leaks or failures. Therefore, it’s not accurate to say one type is more prone to problems than the other; it largely depends on the specific model and how well it’s maintained.

Regardless of the type of water heater you choose, our specialists at 5 Star Best Plumbing are ready to assist with any water heater repair or maintenance needs you may have.
