Water Heater Replacement
If your current water heater has become damaged beyond repair, or simply is not working well and out of warranty, we recommend a water heater replacement.
Water Heater Features to Choose
Warranty: Most water heater warranties are from three to twelve years. Models with longer warranties normally cost slightly more, but they components that heat water faster and are insulated better to prevent heat loss.
Anti-Scale Devices: Some water heaters promote features that reduce mineral scale buildup by churning water in the bottom of the tank. Features such as these add cost, and aren’t that effective. Your best strategy is to get the water heater with the 12 year warranty.
Brass vs. Plastic Drain Valves: Go with the brass drain valves which are more durable than plastic.
Glass-Lined Tanks: These are designed to reduce corrosion in the tank.
Digital Displays: These help you monitor and customize the water heater operation faster and more easily. They show tank levels, temperature, pressure, and other information. They also have auto settings such as vacation modes that increases energy efficiency.

Types of Water Heaters
There are several choices of water heaters, each with its advantages and disadvantages. The best one for your home depends on how much hot water you use, and the heating method (electricity, gas, oil). Some claim to reduce energy costs by up to 50 percent of traditional storage models. The trade-off is that the initial costs are higher and your return on investment will take longer.
Storage Tank Water Heater (Gas)
Storage tank water heaters are the most common, and are run with gas. Their design consists of an insulated tank where water is heated and stored until needed. Natural gas water heaters are more energy efficient and operating costs are reduced by about 50 percent, compared to electric water heaters. Storage tank water heaters have a higher initial cost than electric.
Heat Pump “Hybrid” Water Heater (Electric)
Heat Pump water heaters capture heat from the air and heat the water. The energy expended is approximately 60 percent less than standard electric water heaters. Initially, they cost more than electric-only types, but return on your investment time is short, and installation is similar to electric water heaters.
Drawbacks to be aware of is that hybrid water heaters need to be installed in an area that stays between 40 to 90 degrees, or they will not work well. They need up to 7 feet of clearance from the floor to ceiling, because the heat pump is on top of the water heater. Also, hybrids require up to 1,000 cubic feet of uncooled space to capture enough heat from the air, and a drain in close proximity to discharge the condensate.
Tankless (On-Demand) Water Heaters
In contrast to heating and storing hot water, tankless water heaters use heating coils to heat the water on-demand, as you want to use it. Their energy efficiency is higher than a storage tank, however, the flow of hot water is limited to about 3.5 gallons per minute.
Tankless heaters are ideal for homes where hot water is needed for simultaneous usage, such as running a shower/bath at the same time you’re running a dishwasher or washing machine.
Tankless water heaters are better for homes that heat water with natural gas. Electric models may require an upgrade to the electrical system, that could incur additional costs for upgrades.
Energy Efficient Water Heater
We offer energy efficient water heater solutions meeting the NAECA efficiency standards. If you have an old water heater, you may consider upgrading to one of these energy efficient water heaters that offers a cost savings on your utility bills, and quicker recovery times.
