Units We Install
Gas - A gas system relies on burning fuel to produce heat. They are less energy efficient than electric models but cheaper to run. Their fast recovery rate makes them a great option for large households.
Electric - Electric models run on electricity and can produce quick results. Since they depend on electricity, the bill will tick upwards on your monthly energy bills, but they are very efficient in producing heat and are more environmentally friendly.
Tankless - These new models don’t need a tank, allowing you to save a little bit of space within your home. Since they heat up liquid as it passes through their system, you can receive a hot bath whenever you want. They are much less likely to run out of their supply and are highly efficient and quick, supplying heat immediately when you need it.
When Should I Install a New Unit?
Unsure of whether or not your system needs an upgrade? As a homeowner, we strongly recommend water heater installation if you notice any of the following signs:
Age - Water heaters typically only last between 10 to 15 years. After this time, you will usually see a drop in performance, meaning you should purchase a new model.
Strange noises - If you hear banging, clanks, rumbles, or screeches coming from your unit, it means there is damage on the inside of your tank. If the damage is irreparable, you will need to find a new model for your home.
Leaking - If you notice liquid pooling around the base of your unit, your tank most likely has a leak. Depending on the size of the leak, your unit could need to be replaced entirely.
Change in quality - When you run water for your bath, pay attention to the quality. If it’s discolored or has flecks of rust, you should consider replacing your tank immediately.
Shortage of heat - Lack of heat is usually the most obvious sign of a unit in distress. If repair is not the answer, an entirely new system will be!
