Choosing Your New Water Heater

As aforementioned, a hot water heater in Orlando and the surrounding Central Florida area is going to be used very heavily. You really want to know that you have the right water heater for your needs and that your water heater services are top-notch. The second part is guaranteed when you work with us. Here is some information to help you with the first part of that equation.

  • Both tankless water heaters and traditional water heaters, or those with a tank, come in both gas and electric models. Electric water heaters are popular where a natural gas connection isn’t convenient to access, or where there is no access. Electricity is more expensive than gas, however, which typically results in operating costs.
  • Tankless water heaters have an edge in terms of overall efficiency because they do not suffer standby energy loss. This occurs when the heat in the hot water tank of a traditional water heater transfers out of the tank and into the air surrounding it. Tankless water heaters are more expensive, but that initial cost can be offset by their long lifespans and great efficiency.
  • Traditional tank water heaters are generally still the most popular. They’ve only gotten more efficient over the years, and they are more affordable than tankless models. They are also less likely to be overwhelmed when you are using a large amount of hot water at multiple points of use all at once, provided that they are properly sized and serviced.

We Install, Repair, and Maintain Tankless and Traditional Water Heaters

You need a trained professional to not only install your water heater but to help determine which size of a system you need. You don’t want to overpay for a water heating capacity that you really do not need. However, you also don’t want to wind up with an undersized system. With our water heater technicians on the job, your appliance will be just right. Plus, if you’re using natural gas, you’ll need professional gas piping services.

Remember that routine water heater maintenance is also a must.
