Services Offered for Gas and Electric Water Heaters
We offer installation, replacement, and repair for tank water heaters to both residential and commercial properties. If you’re constructing a new home or building, we can advise you on the best water heater solution and install your water heater for you.
If you have issues with your hot water and it’s not time to replace your it yet (usually after about years for storage tank models), we can help with that as well. We’ll discuss your hot water problems, visit your property, and survey for any damage. We aim to do as much repair as possible before having to completely replace your unit, as we believe in honest communication with our customers.
Sometimes, however, replacement is necessary. We will then remove and dispose of your old water heater and install your new one. We won’t leave the job until after we’ve explained the proper operation and maintenance for your new water heater. We’ll also ensure you’re completely satisfied with our water heater services.
What Are the Differences Between Gas and Electric Tank Water Heaters?
If you purchase a water heater with a storage tank, it’ll be powered by either gas or electricity. Both types have benefits and drawbacks, and the one you choose will depend greatly on your hot water needs.
Gas water heaters are powered by either natural gas or propane. They contain a pilot light at the bottom of the tank, which activates a burner to heat up the water. Gas-fired water heaters require a ventilation flue, as the heating process produces harmful toxins that must be released. They also necessitate a gas line hookup. They tend to cost more upfront but will save you money over time due to lower operating costs.
Electric water heaters run on electricity rather than gas. Inside the tank, there are copper-coated heating elements that activate and heat the water. They don’t require ventilation or a gas line and take directly from your home’s electric supply. That means, however, that if the power goes out you won’t have hot water. Electric water heaters are cheaper up front but tend to have higher costs for operation over time. They also have a slower recovery time than gas water heaters.
