There comes a day when every water heater needs to be replaced. A standard water heater will function well for 10-15 years. You can check the product sticker to see how old your water heater is. If your water heater is pushing 12 years or older, we highly recommend you consider replacing the unit. Rust is also a sign that the heater’s storage tank is beginning to deteriorate. An old water heater poses a risk to your house because it is liable to leak and cause a flood. Avoid water damage to your basement and property by scheduling your water heater replacement before it turns into an emergency. Call us to learn more about our water heater installation services.
Trying to decide what type of water heater you need? There are many options to weigh depending on your needs. Heil Plumbing’s knowledgeable and friendly staff can help guide you through the process of choosing a water heater. Here are some things to consider.
Type of fuel
Water heaters run on different energy sources depending on what's available in the house. Does your home run on natural gas, propane or electricity? Typically gas water heaters that use natural gas or propane are the most effective at heating water. Gas water heaters also cost less to run.
Do you have enough hot water for your family’s needs? Do you frequently find yourself running out of hot water when you take a shower or run a bath? You may want to consider a water heater with a higher output. Another option is to install a mixing valve that will give you a higher volume of hot water per minute. Moreover, a tankless water heater can offer an essentially endless supply of hot water.
Spacing can restrict the type of water heater that can be installed. How much space do you have in the water heater area? Most homes in Maryland have the water heater installed in the basement. However, where space is limited, lowboy water heaters are located in a closet or crawlspace.
Gas water heaters
Specifically require proper ventilation because of the exhaust fumes. Gas water heaters have two different kinds of ventilation options depending on where your water heater is located. An atmospheric water heater is vented through a vertical pipe or a chimney. A power vent water heater has a fan that helps push exhaust gases through a horizontal pipe that leads out of your home. Let Heil Plumbing help you figure out what kind of water heater you need.
Would you like to save on your energy bill? Is going green important to you? New energy-efficient heaters can reduce your power consumption. Alternatively, hybrid water heaters, also known as heat pump water heaters, use the warm air surrounding the unit to heat the water in combination with using electricity. Therefore, hybrid heaters save the most energy in warm climate places. In Maryland, the cost and energy savings are best in the summer when it's hot.
