Residential Water Heater Services
A water heater at the end of its life is an uncomfortable experience. If you start with hot water, it quickly turns into a lukewarm experience. Then later, warm becomes icy cold, leaving you debating if you should shower at all or not. If this experience sounds all too familiar, US Heating & Air Conditioning LLC can professionally install a new, efficient unit for you.
If your water heater simply just needs a repair to get your life back to normal, we will address that first. If it does turn out that you need a replacement, you have several options depending on your preferences.
You can pick a new water heater by fuel type, tank vs tankless and a multitude of other features. The quality you select will significantly affect your utility bills, so it’s a good idea to weigh the upfront investment with the costs over the unit’s lifetime.
Gas Fuel – This is the pricier upfront option. Rebates and reduced utility costs will usually offset this, making a cheaper long-term investment.
Electric Fuel – An electric water heater is going to have a lower upfront cost than a gas one. There is also less of a safety risk.
Tank – A water heater with a tank is the traditional option. They are less expensive upfront and tend to heat up faster than a tankless unit.
Tankless – A tankless water heater, while pricier, will usually come with a rebate and never run out of hot water. They are also longer lived.
One of the biggest warning signs that a water heater has reached the end of its life expectancy is unreliable water temperatures. Instead of being greeted with steaming hot water in the bathtub or shower, the water tumbling out of the faucet is merely warm or lukewarm. If the problem is left unattended, the failing water heater will eventually deliver only very cool or cold water that makes bathing or showering an extremely uncomfortable experience.
US Heating & Air Conditioning LLC is an expert at providing professional installation of a new, energy efficient water heater for homes, apartments and condominiums. Our licensed and experienced service technician can also tell a homeowner if the water temperature issue can be solved without replacing the entire unit. But if the water heater is at least 7 to 10 years old, it is very likely that the best investment of money is complete replacement of the water heater unit.
There are several features that a homeowner or landlord can use to determine the right type of water heater for the needs of the building’s occupants. These include the type of fuel to heat the water, whether the unit features a floor-standing tank or is tankless, along with several other important characteristics. Homeowners should remember that better quality water heaters may represent a larger upfront investment when the new unit is installed, but can significant reduce utility bills on a monthly basis for years to come.
A water heater in which the water is stored in an upright tank that sets on the floor is the most traditional water heater option. This type of unit heats water faster than a tankless unit and require less money to purchase and install.
A tankless water heater saves floor space because it can be installed on the wall. The more expensive water heater option, it has increased longevity, and will never run out of hot water because it heats water on demand.
