Your Water Heater Options

Many types of water heaters can deliver energy-efficient performance. We offer a broad range of systems and will help you select the unit best suited for your needs, desired energy efficiency, and required hot water capacity. Our systems include:

  • Gas water heaters: Gas systems are energy-efficient, require minimal maintenance, and offer continuous hot water. They will operate during power failures, and you can expect most to offer a lifespan of eight to 12 years.
  • Electric water heaters: Safe and reliable, electric water heaters are more energy-efficient than gas water heaters and cost less to purchase and install. Properly installed, most will last 10 to 15 years.
  • Tankless water heaters: Tankless systems offer virtually unlimited hot water. They are energy-efficient, require minimal installation space, and can be installed in the bathroom, laundry room, kitchen, etc. You can expect 15 to 20 years of serviceable lifespan with proper care and maintenance.

Flushing & Filling Tanks

Plumber about to flush a water heaterFlushing and filling the tanks removes sediment and helps improve the performance of your water heater. If you have one to two people in the household, this should be done every year. If you have three to five people, you should drain it every eight months.

The process includes shutting the power and water off, cooling the tank down, and then attaching a hose to the drain valve to remove the water. Once drained, we’ll fill the tank with fresh water to flush any remaining sediment, then we’ll close the drain valve to refill the tank. From start to finish, the process takes less than a couple of hours to complete.
