Conventional Water Heaters
Biggest pro: Less expensive initially
Biggest con: Limited supply of hot water at any given time
Conventional because they have been around for much longer, this type of water heater can be a good choice. They come in a range of sizes and support a variety of different fuel types. Since the fuel type is likely already decided for you based on what is available in your home, the biggest decision to make when selecting conventional water heaters is the size of the tank. This will determine the amount of hot water you will have available at any given time. The downside to a conventional water heater is that when the tank is empty, it takes time for a new round of hot water to be available.
