Water Heater Repair And Installation

A properly functioning water heater is one of the most vital parts of your plumbing system. Over time, wear and tear, hard water, age, pressure, or other issues can cause your water heater to fail. This failure can lead to a number of problems and ultimately leave you standing under a cold shower.

Four Basic Types Of Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are ideal for large families or those with an affinity for long showers. If you want your hot water to never run out, the tankless option may be the best choice for you. A tankless water heater will provide you with an unlimited supply of hot water for all of your entire shower-taking, faucet-running, and laundry-doing needs. In addition, they’re also one of the most energy-efficient water heaters on the market.

Most homes in Waukesha County and Washington County's Lake Country area have a natural gas tank-type water heater. These water heaters are so popular because they are a cost-effective and reliable way to heat the water your family requires. In addition, it’s the fast water heater option, with a regeneration rate that’s 40% quicker than an electric heater.

Most electric water heaters are installed because either natural gas isn't available or there is some other limitation in the home that would prevent the use of natural gas water heating. In either circumstance, electric makes a reasonable alternative to natural gas.

These energy-smart water heaters are a great way to go green without compromising on your needs for daily hot water. By using the sun's energy to heat the water in your home, you can reduce your hot water energy bill by up to 90%!
