We need a new water heater. The current one was installed in 2005. Have there been big changes in water heater technology since then. We don’t want to go the tankless route as it is just my wife and I and don’t need that expense for just the two of us.

Something also to consider looking into is if your local electric or gas company has incentives for putting in a new water heater. When we built our house 2 years ago, our electric company had a great deal on the one we got. They installed a meter on it that allows them to turn it off if there is a peak power emergency. It has never happened to us, and it holds enough hot water that for the 2 of us that we would not ever notice it.
