The Right Size of Water Heater

A hot water heater installation project is by no means as simple as many think it is. In order to get the right size of water heater, our professional technicians must make complex calculations that involve the flow rate and temperature rise that is required for any property. We also have to determine peak hours when the appliance is on greater demand. We factor in the number of people in the home that use hot water. We are experienced in these matters and have qualified technicians that can make these deductions better and determine the load size. If the appliance is too small, it will not achieve the task it is meant for. An appliance that is too large will end up consuming too much energy and this will impact your monthly utility bill and end up costing you more.

Professional Work Avoids a Mess

When it is a storage tank water heater that is getting installed, the fact that they are very enormous makes a water heater installation a complex task to achieve if you are not an expert. Our expert installers will remove your old or broken water heater and then get rid of it. This means that you don’t have to take care of the mess. Our technician will also make sure that the tank is filled with water without any leakages sipping into your home. This is very important because any spillage of water can cause water damage and destroy your foundation.

Get Advice From Professional Plumbers

You have decided to purchase a new water heater and are probably wondering if you should go for the tank water heater, or the tankless water heater. There are a number of factors that you must put into consideration before determining which water heater is best for you. As water heater installation experts, we have the professional acumen to install, to service, and to repair both varieties and are ready to give you advice so that you choose a water heater that is applicable to your home’s requirements.

Choosing Between Tank and Tankless Water Heaters

Tank water heaters use a tank to store water which is kept at temperatures that remain constant using heating elements. Anytime you need to use the water, it will be hot and readily available to you. Since tank water heaters work almost nonstop to ensure the water is always hot, they are more expensive compared to their tankless counterparts. They also occupy space because the tank has to be large enough to ensure there is sufficient storage.

Why the Difference?

When you have a tankless water heater, you only heat water when you require it to be hot. The appliance has a flat panel where the heating elements are kept. As soon as you turn on a hot water tap, the water flows through these elements and is heated instantly. With this type of heating solution, you don’t need storage and energy is not used regularly to keep the water hot. Tankless heaters also consume lesser space in comparison to the tank heaters.

Getting the Size Right

No matter which water heater you choose between tank and tankless heaters, it is also critical that you choose the right size. If the water heater is below the required size, it will not work effectively and you will remain frustrated. This is where we come in as professionals to ensure that your hot water heater installation is done right. We do the installation right and we give you the guarantee that the tank will fit with what your home requires.

So Which Heater is Ideal?

If your home uses not more than 40 gallons of hot water or less, it would be best to use demand water heaters without tanks. Initially, the costs of a tankless water heater will be higher as compared to the traditional storage water heater. The tankless system is more energy efficient and durable compared to the tank system. Tankless systems have a lifespan that can go beyond 20 years and most of their parts can be easily replaced. Storage water heaters on the other hand have a lifespan between 15 to 20 years. If you are looking for an energy efficient home, it would be best to opt for a tankless water heater.
