Water Heater Installation – Check Out The Latest…
If you are in the market for a new water heater, there are two types to consider.
Storage Tank & Tankless Water Heaters
A storage tank model and a tankless water heater. A storage tank model stores hot water in a tank until it is needed, while a tankless version heats water upon demand.
There are many benefits to using a tankless water heater.
Cost Savings – Annual energy costs are going through the roof. Many families are paying hundreds of dollars every month to fill their cars with gas. Electricity is no different. Even homes fueled by natural gas have seen increases in annual expenditures.
Because tankless water heaters don’t have to keep 50 gallons (or 70 or 100!) of water hot all the time, they are much more efficient.
A typical annual cost savings is around $100 and much more for larger families.
– Tankless Water Heaters Make Lots of Hot Water! – Even with a larger 75 gallon tank, a traditional water heater will still run out of hot water quickly. Try filling a bathtub for a little one while running the dishwasher and then taking a shower. You’ll be cold fast!
With a tankless water heater, there is no limit to the supply of hot water.
There are two drawbacks to the tankless systems. The primary reason is the upfront cost. There is no doubt that tankless systems are more expensive to buy and to install than traditional tank systems. The second is that you need natural gas running to your house.
Beyond that, you can’t beat the tankless water heater for efficiency or for it’s usability. It wins every time.
Water Heater Replacement Sizes
Depending on the size of your home and family, you may require a small or large unit. Typically, two people will only need a model that holds 30-40 gallons, a family of four will require a 40-50 gallon version and more than five people will need a 50-80 gallon unit. The size of your storage area also plays a role in the size and type that will work best for your home.
Whether it is a new tankless water heater, or a traditional style, we can repair and install any type of water heater.
