Gas Water Heater Replacement
Choosing an ENERGY STAR water heater can save you money over the lifespan of the water heater. Larger families save more due to the fact they use more hot water. You also want to check with your local gas company for any rebates they may offer. The gas company offers rebate programs a few times per year so be sure to take advantage of that. You can enhance you heater with a hot water recirculation pump that delivers hot water to the fixture as soon as you turn on the faucet. If your not sure what size water heater you need, give us a call to help you determine what size heater you have. Most customers don’t know that it’s not the size in gallons, it’s the size in B.T.U that is most important. A “B.T.U” is the amount of gas used to heat the water and how fast the recovery is. The higher the B.T.U the faster the water will heat.
How To Find The Water Heater Model Numbers And Age
All water heaters have a Rating Plate that lists important data such as the model and serial numbers, manufacturing company’s name, length of warranty, wattage of elements installed (on electric models), gallon capacity, input BTU rating (gas models).
Water Heater Maintenance Makes a Difference
Keep your Gas Water Heater in good operating condition by having it flushed and the anode rod inspected annually as the manufacture recommends.
We offer a lifetime warranty on the water heaters we install and the only way we can do that is to flush it once a year and replace the anode rod when needed. We have water heaters on service agreements that have lasted over 30 years. Most hot water heaters only last a year or two after the warranty.
