Your water heater does a lot for you, but putting in a new one is a commitment.

There are many crucial steps to water heaters. These include:
It’s important to choose the right unit, as there are many options available. If you select a gas one and the home isn’t set up for it, we can help you install a new gas line, as well. Plus, closed-loop systems often need an expansion tank to help with excess water pressure. Let us help you get the right one for your home.
You are going to be using the same water heater for many years. Therefore, this is a significant decision and takes a lot of time and effort to plan it correctly. Often, you need to consider the size of the tank based on how many faucets may have hot water coming from them. We understand how to size the tank for the house, so we can give you an idea of the best water heater for your needs.
Of course, once you have the right one, it is not an easy process for a regular homeowner. You’re going to need the help of a professional plumber, and we have the best in the field.
Generally, when people think of a water heater, they consider the conventional tank. If yours is currently over 10 years old, you probably have one of them in your home. These units can heat anywhere between 20 and 100 gallons of water. The issue is that, when the tank runs out of the water, you have to wait for the tank to fill back up and reheat. Therefore, these units tend to use more energy than their modern tankless counterparts.
Also, you are more likely to need an expansion tank to help with overflow when the water pressure gets too high.

More and more homeowners are turning to tankless water heaters because they heat the water up as you turn on the faucet to use it. Generally, they are gas-operated and can run on propane or natural gas. Plus, when you use the hot water, the entire tank is heated. It can keep up to 50 gallons of water very hot, so it is ready to be used. This saves energy.
Everyone believes that gas water heater installation is the only way to go because it heats the water faster and costs less to maintain. Still, there are some reasons to consider an electric water heater.
We agree that they can be safer because it’s far more likely to have a gas leak explosion than get electrocuted. Plus, if there was an explosion, it is going to do more damage to your home than anything an electric tank might.
Plus, we can install a timer onto the electric tank. That way, you can cut power to the tank at a predetermined time. This saves money because it’s not working and heating water when you’re not likely to use it.
The cost of the installation can vary. Of course, it comes in two parts. You have to pay for the appliance itself and the labor. Now, we are qualified to install any type of water heater and have done it many times before. Therefore, we can do it in a short period of time without sacrificing quality.
