Choosing A Water Heater

Take a moment and picture this. You just worked a long day at work and the only thing you want is a nice warm shower. You climb into your sanctuary and feel your muscles start to relax one by one. Let us help you with our water heater services.

As you lean against the wall and shut your eyes, a sudden shot of freezing cold water hits you like a ton of bricks. You frantically try to adjust the cold water only to face the hard cold truth that your water heater checked out.

GAS OR ELECTRIC

ELECTRIC : Before you buy a new water heater, you need to know how each type functions. An electric water heater uses huge coils that hang into the tank to heat the water.

The coils is similar to those in your oven. Electric water heaters usually not as efficient as those that are powered by other types of fuel sources. First and foremost, these types of water heaters are more expensive to use. On the positive side, if you do not have a high demand for water, this could be a good choice.

NATURAL GAS: This type of water heater has a burner at the bottom of the tank and venting like a chimney that runs to the outdoors. Carbon dioxide is filtered out of the home. There is a gas pilot light and this is what produces the flame. These types of water heaters are more efficient than electric, but do cost more.

PROPANE AND OIL: These two types of water heaters are used generally when the home does not have access to natural gas. The fuel is stored outside in a large
tank, and is delivered by an outside source.

With all types of water heaters, maintenance is crucial for efficiency and long life of your purchase. Yearly cleaning and a routine check ensures that you will not be faced with an icy cold blast of cold water the next time you are scrubbing your stress away.

Do your homework in advance so you arm armed with the right information and questions so you can decide which is best for you and your family.
