Whether you are replacing or upgrading, our water heater installers provide a three-fold service that makes sure you are getting a quality, affordable water heater that lasts. While we can always help answer questions and get you the unit you need, we want our customers to be educated so they understand what to expect and what we can do for them when it comes to a water heater install.
In many homes, you have a choice between gas or electric water heaters. While gas water heaters are usually restricted to homes with other gas appliances, electric water heaters can be used in almost any home. If your unit has served you well, then you will most likely want to simply replace with a similar type. However, it’s always important to understand your options, and when it comes to water heaters, we know best. We can provide gas or electric water heater installation services.
Features to consider are gallon capacity, recovery rate, dimensions, energy efficiency rating, and your budget.
When considering which gallon capacity to get, think about how many people you have living at your house. Do you have a lot of people, all showering at one time of day? Do you have residents who like to take whirlpool baths? Do you need multiple appliances at once? True satisfaction with your water heater means knowing what you need to make everyone happy. 40 to 50-gallon water heaters are usually the norm, however if you answered yes to all of the above, then you may want to consider a larger unit.
Tied closely with gallon capacity is recovery rate, which specifics how many gallons the heater will heat in an hour. Once again, if you have a lot of people showering at one time of day, you’re going to want your recovery rate to be quicker than average.
A more practical consideration is how the actual physical dimensions of your water heater will affect your home. Because of this, it’s important to know the space where the heater should go. If you want a large gallon capacity but have a small area, then you may want to consider other options.
Your energy efficiency rating is tied closely in with your budget, telling you, on average, the amount that the unit will cost per year to run. Perhaps buying a more expensive unit will save you more in the long run, or maybe you need to save more money up front. These are all things that your experienced technician will discuss with you, so you can be sure to get the unit you need for a price you can afford and an unmatched service.
