There are three basic types of hot water tanks:

Electric Hot Water Tanks

Electric heated tanks are the most common and most expensive water heaters. They can be installed in most instances, as long as the space requirements are met. Electric hot water tanks though, are less efficient in heating the water than gas or tankless systems, but they cost less to replace.

Gas Hot Water Tanks

Natural gas heated hot water tanks heat water much faster than electric tanks and are more efficient. However, at present, because of the cost of natural gas athey are usually slightly more expensive to run. And, since they burn hotter, they usually have a slightly shorter life expectancy. Gas hot water heating systems also need to be situated near an exterior wall and must have special venting to the outside. Additional costs will also be associated with outside venting.

On-Demand Tankless Water Heaters

The advantage of installing an on-demand, tankless hot water system is that it can be installed almost anywhere. If you are limited in space, hot water can be  delivered at the right temperature instantaneously, without the need for a hot water tank. Using an on-demand tankless system will produce savings of up to 70% of your current energy usage by heating water only when it is needed.
