Water Heater Installation and Maintenance Services
If you are ready to purchase a new water heater, we can help recommend the right type of water heater for your needs and your priorities.
Our installations are performed by a technician with both a plumbing and a gas licence. It is important for homeowners to verify this, as having a gas license for this work is required by law.
We can also recommend and perform the right kind of maintenance for your water tank, as regular maintenance can increase efficiency and help avoid problems before they turn into emergencies – especially on older water heaters.
Types of Water Heaters – Which Should You Buy?
There are two major players in the water heater category – the traditional water heater tank and the tankless style. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, and choosing the right one will depend on several things.
Traditional Water Tanks
The more traditional tank-style water heater stores heated water until it is required through a fixture point. It then tops up its level until needed again.
Water tanks are often a better buy for people who are planning to sell their home in the near future, as they won’t be around when the energy savings add up to pay for the cost of the installation. They are also good for people who are on a very tight budget.
Tankless Water Heaters
The tankless heater essentially heats the water as it flows through the unit from the household mains supply and then distributes it to the many fixtures in the home.
They take up less space than a regular water heater and are energy efficient, although on the flip side, you may have to run the water for a while to get the hot water to the fixture. If the unit is gas powered, then a vent line needs to be installed through an exterior wall for safety reasons.
