What Type of Water Heater Are You Looking For?
There are several different factors worth considering before purchasing a new water heater. This is where working with an experienced professional to upgrade or install your system can be invaluable. Either way, here are your primary water heating options.
The most important decision regarding water heaters will be choosing whether you want to install a unit with a conventional storage tank or a tankless model. Traditional tank-style units are relatively inexpensive and they last around 10-12 years if maintained. When you turn on a hot tap, hot water is pulled from the tank which is then replaced with cold water. Even when there is no demand, the water must be reheated every time the temperature falls below the thermostat threshold. The main drawback is that once the hot water is gone, you’ll have to wait for the water inside of the tank to reheat. Depending on the size of your water heater, this could take a while.
When it comes down to powering the heating process, tankless water heaters use 30-50% less electricity than water storage tank models. They also provide an endless supply of hot water since they instantly heat water on demand. These units are much smaller and are usually hung on a wall, even inside of the shower itself. While a typical water heater doesn’t take up that much room, the additional space can be used for storage or other purposes. For those of you looking to replace water heaters with tankless technology, it’s important to work with a certified plumber that knows how to pick a model with sufficient capacity to satisfy your entire family during peak usage.
The Water Heater Replacement Process
Once you’ve chosen the water heater that best fits your needs, the best thing you can do is have it installed by a trained and certified plumber. When we manage an installation, we actually take the time to remove and drain your old unit before hauling it away. Some companies will charge extra for this. If you have a gas water heater, we verify that the flue is clear prior to making the final connections. A blue flame with yellow tips confirms the burners are operating efficiently.
Electric water heater replacements are connected directly to the power source and we inspect all electrical components to ensure everything is safe and operating properly. Tankless water heaters may require more time to install depending on the size of your plumbing pipes and electric capacity. Manufacturers recommend that you have a professional plumbing contractor set up these complex units. Some Phoenix properties are not capable of supporting the power and fuel requirements for tankless water heaters without certain modifications to gas or electric lines.
