About Water Heaters – Installation, Service, and Repair
Water heaters come in all sizes and shapes. All with the same purpose which is to provide you and your family hot water for bathing, doing dishes and laundry and cooking. Traditionally water heaters have always been big tank type heaters that store large amounts of water heated by either a gas burner or electric heating element. We can work on and replace tank type water heaters manufacturered by American, Bradford White, AO Smith, and any and all other manufacturers. With the cost of energy continually rising, it might be time to consider a tankless water heater or a hybrid heat pump water heater.
Tips and Facts about Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are quite a bit smaller than a conventional tank type heater. They usually hang on the wall and are about the size of a suitcase. If you currently have a tank type electric water heater, you might consider switching to a hybrid heat pump water heater. Energy Star rated means it will save you money in operating cost vs. a standard tank type heater. On average, a standard electric water heater costs approx. $520 per year to operate vs. $198 for a hybrid heat pump heater. That is approx. $3200 in savings over 10 years. That’s a lot of money. They are able to accomplish this by combining heat pump technology with electric heating elements.
