How To Choose A Water Heater
A typical way to price a water heater is by how many gallons it can hold. As well as the “first-hour-rating” for storage-tank heaters and “gallons-per-minute” for tankless heaters. These typically give you a better idea of what is a better option for you and your family.

These typically are the tall cylindrical tanks filled with pipe water, then heated in the tank, and distributed to its destination through the hot water pipes. These are usually fueled with gas, but can be electric. These are your common traditional system for hot water in most homes. Upgrading to a new water heater could save you money on energy.
Tankless heaters are more energy-efficient and typically have a longer lifespan. They are usually a lot smaller and only heat the amount of water needed. We are experienced and trained in tankless water heater repair and installation.
These systems are great for homes with 1-2 people that shower at separate times. However, a house full of teenagers who take long showers might run out of hot water with a tankless model. Let’s talk and see if this water heater would fit well in your home.
Hybrid Electric Heaters
These are conventional water heaters paired with a heat pump to heat the water in your tank. They’re around 2-3 times more energy-efficient than other storage-tank heaters and also cost less to use than most gas water heaters. They are dependent on your geographic location and the area they will be installed.
Solar Water Heaters
Similar to electric water heaters, but run off of banked solar energy. The solar energy is transferred to a heating coil which heats the water. These systems are 50% more efficient than other systems but are dependent on a backup system in the event of gray or inclement weather.
