How to Choose a Water Heater
The most critical step is selecting the right water heater for your home and water needs. Consider whether a tankless or a tank water heater is right for you.
What is a Tank Water Heater?
Tank water heaters are familiar to most people. Usually ranging from 15 to 60 gallons, they heat and store water in a tank. You can access hot water whenever you need it, up to the capacity of the tank.
The downside is that you have to heat the water constantly, even when not using it, and you can run out of hot water if you exceed your tank’s capacity. In terms of cost, tank water heaters are cheaper to install but are usually more expensive to operate.
How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?
Unlike tank-type water heaters, tankless water heaters heat water only as needed. These devices are connected to the water lines of your fixtures and turn on when the hot water valve is activated. Tankless heaters use less energy than tanks because they don’t constantly heat water, so you might need to wait a few seconds for the water to heat.
What is the Process for Installing a New Water Heater?
Our water heater installation and replacement experts can begin the installation process after selecting the model and sizing it to meet your family’s average hot water demands.
First, we remove the old water heater and inspect all connections for tank models. The gas and water supply will be shut off during installation for safety reasons. You should schedule the installation when you can be away from home. A tank model can typically be installed in less than a day, while a tankless model can take up to two days, depending on the size of your home.
