Tank & Tankless Water Heater Installation

If you need new water heater installation services for your new property or a rehab project, our service professionals can install your unit and help you decide on the best one if you don’t already have one picked out.  Then considerations for installation of a new unit are the number of people in a home and the size of the home.  If you have a home with a large amount of space, you may want to consider two water heaters so that the distribution of water is even.

  • Standard Water Heaters: A standard or tank water heater heats water in a tank and keeps it hot and ready for use when it is needed.  The benefits of tank water heaters are that they are less of an investment and if you plan on renting or selling, you haven’t put more money into the home than you can get back by raising the price of your home.
  • Tankless Water Heaters: A tankless water heater is usually more energy-efficient than a water heater with a tank.  This is because a tank water heater must work continuously to keep the water that is stored at a certain temperature.  This type of water heater works by drawing water through the unit and heating it on demand so that no tank is needed.  There are many benefits of having a tankless water heater installed, the first being that you will save time if you have a lot of family members.  No more waiting for the water to heat up!

Tank & Tankless Water Heater Replacement

You may need to have your water heater replaced because it is not worth putting repairs into an old unit in your home.  This is a common occurrence in homes with older water heaters.  A tank water heater is only meant to last about 10 years before it needs to be replaced with another unit.

Rust is a problem when a water heater gets corroded.  This is another sign of age or too many minerals in the water.  If there are too many minerals in your water, they can corrode your plumbing, water heater, and appliances.  This can cause you to need to replace things more often in your home.  You may want to invest in a water softener to protect your new water heater and the appliances in your home.

If you have a bad leak coming from your water heater, and it can’t be repaired, it is necessary to replace your water heater so that you can have hot water again.  We can come to your home and give you an estimate for our replacement services and a new water heater.
