It can feel a bit challenging trying to decide on the best water heater for your needs. What makes the process especially difficult is that so many units look the same, at least from the outside. By consulting with a team of knowledgeable professionals, the selection does not have to be so hard. Our experts can advise the proper size and type of heater to supply warm water to your whole household.
It is important to consider certain factors before your new unit is installed, including:
- Your daily hot water usage
- The size available space for the water heater
- The type of system that is currently installed
- Energy efficiency ratings
Depending on your needs, you may want to consider installing a tankless water heater. These units are more compact, more energy efficient, and offer on-demand hot water, so you are never left in the cold. They do, however, have a higher initial cost, but the energy savings usually translate to many more dollars saved on your monthly utility bills.
“We engaged Sal to do the annual maintenance on our 2 Navien tankless water heaters. They are prompt and very knowledgeable and professional.”- Paulette L.
One of the sure signs that your water heater is in trouble is when it does not produce warm water, or when it refuses to even turn on. However, it is important to be aware that there are other signs that your water heater needs repairs. For example, if a tank water heater has streaks of rust or other signs of corrosion, it is time to contact a technician at Sal Plumbing & Rooter. Loud, banging sounds or hissing noises are highly problematic as well. Take these issues seriously by proactively seeking professional support to keep your system working efficiently.
