Water Heater Repair
If your water heater is a newer model that you aren’t ready to let go of, then water heater repairs are is for you. When your water heater is taking a long time to output hot water and isn’t producing hot water for nearly as long as it used to, then it’s time to call the experts.

This is the best option to take if you notice problems with your water heater after only a few years of being brand new. When the water heater is about 10-15 years old, it’s time to consider replacing the whole thing, because simple repairs might not be enough to fix the problem.
Water Heater Installation
When dealing with an older model of water heater, replacement of the old one and the installation of a brand new water heater is the best decision to make. When deciding to install a new water heater, there multiple options to consider. The three options you have when installing a water heater are conventional tank water heaters such as gas and electric water heaters, or the tankless water heater. To help you decide which is best for you, we’ll break down what’s the difference between the options at hand.
Conventional Tank Water Heaters
The conventional tank water heater works by using varying heating elements is the tank to have hot water ready for you whenever. Tank water heaters vary in size, 23-56 gallons or more to give you the best options for you and the other members of your household.
Gas conventional tank water heaters aren’t used as often any more but are still reasonable choice for a new water heater. By using gas burners in the tank, the gas water heats up and stores water for you when you need it for use.
Electric water heaters work similarly to the gas water heater, except instead of using gas burners in the tank, the electric water heater uses electric elements at the top and bottom to provide hot water. The electric water heater uses individual thermostats to control each heating element to maximize the efficiency of the hot water usage. The bottom element provides heat while on standby, while the top element heats the water when used in large amounts.
Tankless Water Heaters
The tankless water heater, also known as the instant water heater, takes a different approach to the conventional method of tank water heaters. The main difference between the tankless water heater and the tank water heater, the tankless water heater heats the water as it’s flowing so that you have hot water on demand. Since there isn’t a need to worry about the water being stored and heated in a tank, the production of hot water is constant and never ending.
