With the multiple types of water heaters available, it can be challenging to determine which ones will meet your needs the best. However, our professionals are here to help.
Below are the four types of water heaters and their benefits:
The unit with the lowest initial cost and easy installation is typically a tank heater. This system has been used for centuries, but they take up a significant amount of space that could be used more effectively. However, they don’t require much maintenance and last about ten years. These tanks typically hold between 20 to 50 gallons which is not always the most efficient option.
Recently many homes and businesses have been transitioning to on-demand water heaters. These heaters are tankless, about the size of a carry-on so you can save space. They’re also highly efficient because they only heat the water you need. This can save you up to $100 a year while waiting less than 25 seconds for hot water. This heater can last up to 20 years with regular maintenance.
Gas water heaters are a strong solution if you frequently experience power outages from hurricanes or blackouts. If your home already has a gas line, this system has a low installation cost and efficient operation. However, they may have an open flame that needs to be relit occasionally.
Every home or business already has electricity. This makes electric water heaters easy and affordable to install. However, they can have higher operating costs than the gas alternative. This flexible sizing allows you to choose from whole-home systems or point-of-use applications in a shed or basement.
“We had a hot water heater issue on a Saturday and they sent a representative out within the hour! Every person we dealt with was kind & professional. Great experience!”- Haylee S.
No one wants to spend more than necessary on utility bills, especially a growing business. To increase the efficiency of your water heater and lower costs, it’s important to schedule regular maintenance. These services typically include flushing your heater biannually to remove mineral buildup and prevent clogs and testing the temperature release value so the pressure inside your tank heater is manageable. By lowering the temperature by ten degrees or more, you can save 5% on energy costs.
When to Replace Your Water Heater
If you’re not receiving any hot water or notice a leak, it may be time for a repair. If your heater is electric, a tripped breaker may prevent it from receiving power, or your heating element may need to be replaced. Always check breakers and try resetting your heater if you’re not receiving hot water. If this doesn’t work, trust our professionals for expert water heater services in Bossier City. If you have a leak, check all the connections and tighten them if they’re loose. Otherwise, your tank may have corroded or aged past its prime. We can help you decide which water heater meets your needs when it’s time for a replacement.
Although replacing a water heater isn't always easy - and can be expensive upfront - switching out an older model for a newer one will save you money in the long run due to increased energy efficiency. Newer models are designed with sophisticated insulation layers and have higher recovery rates than older tanks, so they use less energy to keep the water heated throughout the day. In addition, updated technology allows for more precise temperature controls which can help reduce energy costs even further if used properly. Replacing an old water heater with a new one is an investment that could pay off in lower utility bills and better performance over time.
