There are three basic types of hot water tanks:

Electric Hot Water Tanks

Electric heaters are the most common and usually less expensive than gas heaters. If there isn’t an option for natural gas at your home or office, then this will be the deciding factor. However, electric hot water tanks are slower to heat the water than using natural gas and will sometimes run out of hot water if the tank is not an adequately large size.

Natural Gas Hot Water Tanks

Gas powered hot water tanks heat water faster than electric tanks do but are usually more expensive to run, and they usually have a slightly shorter life. These types of water heating systems will also require special venting to the outside so cannot be installed in certain circumstances. Also, there are additional costs associated with installing the outside vent.

On-Demand Water Heaters

There are a few advantages of installing a tankless or on-demand hot water system. If you have limited space, water does not need to be stored but will be delivered at the right temperature without the need for a tank. Using on-demand tankless systems allow for greater efficiency, perhaps saving up to 70% of your current energy costs by only heating water when needed.
