Hot Water Tanks
There are many factors to consider when buying a new water heater: the number of people in your household, the size of your bathtub, and the price of the water heater, just to name a few. Whether you are in need of a standard vent, direct vent or power vent and whether it will be natural gas, propone or electric we can help you find the best tank for your individual application. We can also service and repair your existing tank to maximize its lifespan.
Here are a couple of considerations when purchasing a new water tank or water heater for your home:
- Fuel Type - The fuel type or energy source you use for water heating will not only affect the water heater's annual operation costs but also its size and energy efficiency. Common choices are electricity, fuel oil, geothermal energy, natural gas, propane and solar.
- Size – You'll want to make sure to select the right size for your household. Choosing one too small means you'll run out of hot water when you need it and choosing a water heater too large means you're wasting money on your utility bill. We'll make sure to help you select the right size.
- Energy Efficiency – Before purchasing a water heater, you'll want to know how energy efficient it is. As a rule of thumb, the more energy efficient the tank heater is, the more expensive it is. However, by purchasing an energy-efficient model, you may save more money in the long run on your water heating bill. Consulting with a qualified contractor will help assure you make a good decision.
- Cost –It makes good sense to estimate the annual operation costs of a water heater and compare those costs with other less or more energy-efficient models. This way you won't run into any surprises down the road in regards to your utility bill.
