Do I Need Water Heater Service?
Could you benefit from our water heater services? Watch for these signs and if any of them seem familiar, you better give us a call!
Strange sounds coming from the water heater: Gurgling, bubbling, hissing or popping sounds are all common when a water heater is about to fail.
Insufficient hot water: A properly operating 40- or 50-gallon tank should be able to supply enough hot water for two or three back-to-back showers. OR there’s no hot water coming from your faucets. If yours is unable to keep up, it may need maintenance to restore maximum output.
Murky hot water: A water heater with rust on the inside may cause hot water to run brown. Draining and flushing the tank may resolve this problem.
Leaky relief valve or rusty tank: Is your water heater leaking? Do you see a pool of water around the base of your water heater? Call us to address these problems before the tank fails and floods your home!

Water Heater FAQ
Tankless Water Heater Advantages
- Saves you money over time.
- Tankless water heaters (if gas-fired) will save homeowners over $100 annually the longer they remain in service. Electric tankless water heaters still save homeowners around $44 per year according to the US Department of Energy.
- Longer useful lives than storage tank water heaters.
- Tankless water heaters typically last 20 to 30 years, double the forecasted useful life of a storage tank water heater. Be aware that “hard water” areas, may reduce the useful life of both types of water heaters.
- Does not consume the space of a storage tank water heater.
- On-demand water heaters are small and may be installed in “tight quarters.” They can even be installed on outside walls if your home is terminally space-challenged.
- You’ll have hot water whenever you need it.
- You won’t have to wait even 15 to 25 seconds for your water to become hot, as tankless water heaters deliver two to three gallons of hot water per minute. Many storage tank water heaters take longer to heat water, because of the larger volume of water they must heat, than most tankless types.
Drawbacks of Tankless Water Heaters
- Higher purchase cost than storage tank water heaters.
- Instead of $500 to $800 for a good storage tank water heater, you’ll spend over $2,000 to around $4,500 to buy and install a tankless water heater.
- Tankless water heater installation can be costly if you’re replacing a storage tank water heater with a tankless-type water heater
- Water heaters – making the switch for your home
- When you choose to retrofit a tankless water heater in place of a storage tank variety, your plumber-installer will take more time, increasing the installed cost, of replacing a storage tank water heater because of the complexity of relocating existing piping.
- They can be “output challenged.”
- Simultaneously taking showers and doing laundry can cause your tankless water heater to fail to keep up with the hot water demand on it. If you have multiple showers in use in your home, you often will have one of the shower-takers endure a “chilly” experience.
(Tank) Water Heater Advantages
- Storage tank water heaters have lower initial cost by a significant margin.
- Instead of spending over $2,000 to $4,500 to buy and install a tankless water heater, it will only cost you around $500 to $800 to purchase and professionally install a good storage tank water heater.
- Storage tank water heaters operate simpler than tankless varieties, resulting in less costly maintenance and repairs.
- Their simplicity makes for easy, low-cost repairs when these water heaters are not functioning properly. Tankless water heaters are more complex and expensive to repair and, obviously, replace.
Drawbacks of Storage (Tank) Water Heaters
- Somewhat higher utility bills.
- Since storage tank water heaters heat, then reheat water to pre-set temperature, irrespective of what your hot water needs happen to be, they increase your utility bills. If these water heaters function in a cool environment (location), they’ll work harder in the winter months, driving your gas or electric bills even higher during the cold winter.
- Occupy more space because of their size than on-demand water heaters.
- If your home is space-restricted, you’ll have challenges finding enough area to locate storage tank water heaters. Also, they cannot be located outside your home like tankless water heaters.
- You don’t want to be the last family member to take a shower.
- Average storage tank water heaters can only support three showers in a row. You won’t like being the fourth shower-taker unless you prefer chilly, not hot, showers
- Need to be replaced more often than tankless water heaters.
- Since storage tank types have a shorter useful life (about ½ the life of on-demand water heaters), typically 10 to 15 years, you may need to buy and install them almost twice as often as tankless water heaters, reducing your purchase savings.
TANKLESS VS TRADITIONAL WATER HEATER
Pros of a tankless water heater: It saves you money in the long run! According to Energy.gov, “For homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, demand (or tankless) water heaters can be 24%-34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters.”
Tankless water heaters provide hot water based on your demands, not water heater capacity.
The water is heated as it flows through the heater rather than a limited sized tank of water being heated as traditional water heaters operate. No matter how large your home is or how many people need hot water, you’ll never run out!
Most tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of more than 20 years. They also have easily replaceable parts that extend their life by many more years. In contrast, storage water heaters last 10–15 years. Tankless water heaters can avoid the standby heat losses associated with storage water heaters.
The good news is that tankless water heaters don’t require much maintenance, either. A tankless system should be serviced as a part of the regular preventive maintenance that heating and cooling systems receive. Electric or gas components should be inspected.
