How to Choose a Water Heater
The most crucial step in selecting a new water heater is determining the right system to meet your water needs and fit your home. You’ll need to consider whether you want a water heater with a tank or a tankless one.
What is a Tank Water Heater?
Most people are familiar with tank water heaters. They heat and store water in a tank with a specific capacity, usually ranging from 15 to 60 gallons. This allows you to access hot water whenever needed, up to the tank’s volume.
However, there are downsides: you pay to heat the water constantly, even when not in use, and you can run out of hot water if you exceed your tank’s capacity. Tank water heaters are cheaper to install but usually more expensive to operate.
How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?
Tankless water heaters heat water only when needed. They connect to your fixtures’ water lines and activate when a hot water valve is turned on at a sink or shower. You might need to wait a few seconds for the water to heat up, but since water isn’t constantly heated, tankless heaters use less energy, potentially reducing energy costs.
What is the Process for Installing a New Water Heater?
After selecting the type of system and sizing it to meet your family’s average hot water needs, our water heater installation and replacement experts can begin the installation process.
For tank models, we’ll first remove the old water heater and inspect all connections. We’ll turn off the gas and water supply during this process for safety, so it’s best to schedule the installation for a time when you can be out of the house. Installing tank models typically takes less than a day, while tankless models can take up to two days, depending on your home’s size and the number of hot water-using fixtures.
