Water Heaters


There is nothing more shocking than finding out you need a new water heater after you’ve stepped in the shower. Water heaters typically need to be replaced every ten to fifteen years depending on water conditions, but oftentimes a small repair will keep your water heater working until you are ready to invest in a new water heater. New water heaters have self-lighting technology and meet current energy efficiency standards. You may need to consider replacing your water heater if you have:

Inconsistent water temperature
Low volume of hot water
Fast & reliable services
Change in demand for hot water (growing family)
A water heater at the end of its service life

There are two basic types of water heaters; tank type and tankless. Either type of water heater can be gas, electric, or a hybrid.

Tank-type Water Heaters

Tank-type water heaters use an electric element or a gas burner to heat a volume of water.  50-gallon gas or electric water heaters are the most common in homes. A tank-type water heater provides a large volume of hot water for use throughout the day.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are gaining popularity because they provide a more efficient and convenient way of heating water. Unlike tank-type water heaters, tankless water heaters only heat the water during use and allow for unlimited hot water. Tankless water heaters typically run on natural gas or propane and can be easily retrofitted into your existing plumbing system.  Due to increased energy costs, tankless water heaters are quickly becoming a better choice for your water heating needs.

Hybrid Tanks

A hybrid water heater uses heat pump technology using the heat in the air of your home to efficiently heat your water. They’re energy-efficient and are perfect for storing large volumes of hot water efficiently without using gas or fossil fuels.



Over the years, we’ve had experience with a number of different water heaters. Through these experiences, we’ve come to rely on a number of brands that we count on to provide the kind of service we expect.
