Gas Water Heaters

Gas storage tank water heaters use an insulated storage reserve, allowing you to have up to 75 gallons of hot water available on demand. This is a plus for families who use large quantities in a short amount of time. A general rule: the larger your household, the higher capacity you’ll need.

These types of water heaters have gotten much more efficient in recent years, which is important, because water heaters are the second-largest source of energy consumption in the home. In general, the lower the storage capacity, the more efficient the water heater.

The average water heater in our service area has a usable life span of nine to 11 years. Despite newer units having a shorter life span on average, they will save you more money over time because of lower energy costs.


Electric Water Heaters

Electric water heaters are also very efficient and dependable. They have minimal parts, so there’s often less wear-and-tear for you to worry about. Electric water heaters are a great alternative for people who don’t have access to natural gas.

Today’s electric water heaters can supply enough hot water for the average family, and although the operating cost may be a little higher than natural gas units, they are extremely reliable and typically consume less energy than previous generation models.


Tankless Water Heaters

These days, many of our customers opt for tankless water heaters. They can provide an endless supply of hot water, unlike storage tank water heaters, which offer a limited reserve before they need to be replenished.

Tankless units cost more than conventional storage tanks, but their convenience makes them a popular choice. Plus, tankless water heaters are considered a “green” product because they conserve energy, pollute less and require less metal and plastic during manufacturing.

    Water Heater FAQs
    Image

    How Do I Select the Right Water Heater for My Home or Business?

    Your water heater selection can often be narrowed down based on several factors: space, efficiency and capacity.

    Space
    Tankless Water Heaters can take up to 60% less space in your utility room than a traditional Tank Water Heater. Because they are usually wall-mounted, this can also make them easier to access for maintenance and repairs.

    Efficiency
    Tankless water heaters are the most efficient because they only consume energy when you use hot water. However, if you have a large home, you may need more than one tankless unit, which is an added expense.

    Is your home or business ready for a new hot water heater? The certified plumbers at South West Plumbing will provide you an expert recommendation and quality installation services. Request a service appointment today or call us at 206-495-6478!
