There are many factors to consider when choosing and installing a new water heater. Our trained plumbing technicians can help you determine your best option. We will take into consideration your home, lifestyle, cost and preferences.
Electric models are less expensive than other fuel types. There are a variety of high efficiency options available.
Gas models use a burner to heat the water and need circulating air around it. Because of this it's important that you have space for the system to ensure safety. Keep combustible materials away! While more expensive than electric models, they are energy efficient.
Heat pumps (Hybrid/Dual Fuel) models use energy from the air to heat the water. They tend to be larger than standard electic water heaters. They come both built-in to water tanks and can also be add-ons to existing ones. Up front costs are higher, but yeild much lower yearly energy costs.
Solar models use heat from the sun to heat the water. They are the most eco-friendly option. Federal and state tax incentives are available to help offset the expensive front end costs.
FACTORS TO CONSIDER:
Annual service and inspection of your water heater is vital. It ensures that your water heater will function safely while extending the life of your equipment. Maintenance will also help you avoid strange noises, funky smells and cold showers.
