Just so you know, water heaters have a life expectancy of around 10-15 years. Because of this, water heaters should be checked after 7 years just in case there are problems or the customer wants to switch to a heater that performs more efficiently.
Before you pick a water heater, we will work with you to determine which type will work best for your home’s setup and budget. You may benefit more from a gas or solar water heater, but some people prefer electric water heaters. Everyone is different.
There are two main groups of water heaters to choose from: storage tank heaters and tankless. Conventional water heaters or storage tank models are powered by either natural gas or electricity. The tanks in these types of water heaters hold from 20-100 gallons of heated water, which provides enough water for a large family to use simultaneously in 3-5 bathrooms. The alternative to this is tankless or on-demand water heaters.
Tankless or on-demand water heaters are the more conservative choice, as they use energy more efficiently. The way they work is much greener since they heat water while you use it via a piece of technology smaller than a laptop.
