We can even help you decide which type of water heater is best for your home or business. In addition to tank heaters, we also install tankless water heaters.
Some of the advantages of installing a tankless water heater include:
- Reduced energy costs– Since a tankless water heater heats water as it flows into a faucet, it doesn't need to keep the water heated all the time. This means you can save money on your energy bills.
- Reduced water pressure loss– When you have a tankless water heater, the water is heated as it flows out of a faucet. This means you don't lose water pressure when you turn on a faucet.
- Less water waste– Water heaters keep water heated all the time, even when it isn't being used. This means you are wasting water when you aren't using it. A tankless water heater heats water as you need it, so you don't waste water when you aren't using it.

Commonly Asked Questions
How often should I replace my water heater?
The lifespan of a water heater is typically around 8 to 12 years. However, factors such as usage, maintenance, and water quality can affect its lifespan. It is recommended to consider replacing your water heater if it is more than 10 years old or if you notice any signs of deterioration, such as leaks or inconsistent water temperature.
What is the difference between a tankless water heater and a conventional water heater?
The main difference between a tankless water heater and a conventional water heater is how they heat and store water. A tankless water heater heats water on demand, providing hot water instantly without the need for a storage tank. It is more energy-efficient as it only heats water when needed. On the other hand, a conventional water heater stores and heats a large amount of water in a tank, continuously keeping it hot until it is used. Tankless water heaters are generally more expensive to purchase and install but can save on energy costs in the long run.
What should I do if my water heater is leaking?
If your water heater is leaking, it is important to take immediate action to prevent further damage. First, turn off the power supply to the water heater. If it is a gas water heater, turn off the gas supply as well. Next, shut off the water supply to the unit. You can do this by closing the cold water inlet valve located near the top of the water heater. Finally, contact a professional plumber to inspect and repair the leak. Do not attempt to fix the leak yourself as it can be dangerous.
