Let us help you choose the water heater that is right for you.
Gas Water Heaters
Heating water with gas is one of the most efficient methods of supplying baths, faucets, or even radiant heating systems with hot, steaming comfort. Tank type water heaters allow you to have 50, 65, or even 75 gallons of hot water at the ready when you need or want it. While the efficiency factor of these tank-type water heaters has increased over time this has unfortunately shortened the life span of these units. The average water heater in our area has a usable life span of 9 to 11 years. The plus side is the newer units will save money over their life span and keep your energy cost low.
Electric Water Heaters
Electric water heaters work very well and are very dependable, with minimal parts to wear-out or break. Quite often natural gas is not available and electricity is one of the only options. Today’s electric water heaters will supply enough hot water for the average family and although the operating cost may be a little higher, they are extremely reliable.
Tankless Water Heaters
Many customers choose the newest generation of tankless water heaters. Whether gas or electric these heaters supply an endless amount of hot water. These units cost more than the conventional tank-type units, but are often chosen for the comfort of a lengthened supply of hot water. Tankless water heaters can also be considered a “green” product, and are good for the planet (depending on how they are used). They can save energy and pollute less, plus they use less metal and less plastic at the manufacturing stage.
