Tank and Tank-less Water Heaters
We offer installation and repairs to tank water heaters. Having tank water heaters installed properly is a must to validate warranties as well as meet modern safety concerns. Many improvements on safety have been made over the years to tank water heaters. Newer units have been improved to make them more energy efficient. Some modern units are impervious to rust and corrosion.
Others offer premium anode rods and parts to enhance the life of standard tanks. Proper venting of exhaust for modern more sealed homes is a must. Some homes using spray foam insulation may require special units or air ducts to bring fresh/ combustible air from outside the home to the appliance. Most damage to homes from water heaters come from inadequate protective drain pans and lines. There are also water sensing alarms available that immediately shut down the water to your water heater.
Tank-less water heaters are becoming more and more mainstream every day. Many new subdivisions, apartments, condos, and restaurants are being designed to use of tank-less water heaters. They come in a variety of types. Having tank-less water heaters installed correctly and properly maintained is of paramount importance for proper longevity and enjoyment of these energy efficient appliances. Electric tankless water heaters rely heavily on having properly sized electrical circuits, breaker panels, and incoming power feeds to work properly.
Having improper power supply can result in inadequate function of the appliance at best, or at worse case, in home fires. Gas tankless waters operate much differently than their tank counter parts. Because they heat water on demand instead of over periods of time, proper gas supply and volume is a must. Interior gas tank-less water heaters typically require special stainless-steel venting to prevent damage to the units.
Some premium tankless water heaters offer venting via PVC. Some modern units offer built in re-circulation of hot water piping with adaptive smart learning systems. Gas tankless water heaters are recommended to be serviced once a year with a proper descale of interior water piping. Occasionally a more involved cleaning of the internal heating components is required. We offer sales, service, and maintenance of major brands such as Rheem, Ruud, Noritz, and Rinnai.
