Among the two main water heater types, tank and tankless, there are many different options from which to choose. A team member from Plymouth Plumbing & Heating will be glad to discuss the pros and cons of each style with you, to help you select the best option for your family’s needs.
Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater
This traditional option features an insulated tank holding the water. The size of the tank determines how much water can be heated at once. Conventional water heater types are the most affordable and easy to install.
Tankless (On Demand) Water Heater
A tankless water heater uses super-heated coils that fill with and heat water as you need it instead of keeping a tank filled with hot water all the time. Water gets heated quickly and is available as needed, on-demand, which is a good option for large families. Tankless water heaters work best with natural gas and are extremely energy-efficient; they are considered green plumbing.
Heat Pump (Hybrid Water Heater)
These water heater types use up to 60% less electricity because they use the heat from surrounding air to heat water. Therefore, they do not work well in cold spaces like basements. The pump is located on top of the tank, which requires up to eight feet of space overhead.
Solar Powered Water Heater
These models draw their energy from the sun and are the most energy-efficient of all water heater types available. They require the installation of solar panels mounted on your roof or property. While Solar Powered Water Heaters are environmentally friendly, they are quite expensive.
Condensing Water Heater
These water heater types use unused natural gas fumes in your home to heat your water. They are very energy-efficient and are for homes that run on natural gas. They require a larger tank, but are a good option for large families or homes that require a hot water capacity over 55 gallons.
Water heater installation costs will depend on the type and size of water heater you choose, as well as any other work that is necessary, such as adding new piping or electrical wiring. Switching from a tank to a tankless water heater will also require additional work and costs. The necessary work permits and any plumbing fixtures that must be brought up to code will also factor into your final water heater replacement cost.
Tankless heaters will have more upfront costs than tank heaters, but they are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, saving you money in the long run. Also, gas heaters are less expensive than electric heaters. Call our professionals today to get your water heater installed, replaced, or repaired!
Hot water is very corrosive over time, and can wear down your hot water heater and its components. Moreover, if you have hard water, or water that contains a high amount of minerals, this can cause rust and sediment buildup over time.
If your family uses a large amount of hot water, you may have a water heater that is too small for your usage level, and it can wear out quicker than the average lifespan. A good-quality water heater should last 8-12 years on average.
First, turn off the water to the water heater and shut off the power to the unit. Then, remove any furniture or salvageable items from water-damaged areas. Clean the areas soaked with water. Run a dehumidifier to prevent mold growth. Call the trained professionals at Plymouth Plumbing & Heating to evaluate, repair, or replace your old water heater.
You should also prepare to file an insurance claim. Do not throw out your damaged water heater, as your adjuster will need it to assess the damage while calculating your insurance payout.
