Common Water Heaters We Replace and Upgrade

Our expert technicians will remove your old water heater and replace it with a newer model. We offer the types of water heaters


The most common type with one large tank that holds a large volume of water that is heated. Storage water heaters can either be gas or electric powered, with gas providing faster heaters, and electric models are less expensive and safer to maintain. Lastly, Storage water heaters require regular cleaning and flushing, have a long refill time, and have a limited running water supply.


Tankless water heaters heat water as needed, making them highly energy efficient and cheap to operate. They are easy to install as they don’t require a large tank, but they are more expensive compared to storage water heaters. These models also struggle to provide hot water to multiple fixtures, making them difficult to recommend for large buildings.

Heat Pump

Heat pumps work by transferring heat from the air outside of your home, eliminating the energy required for a traditional heating element. This drastically reduces energy bills compared to any other type on the market, but heat pumps have difficulty controlling temperatures in moderate or freezing locations and are ideal in hot climates.


Condensing water heaters can only be installed in homes with a natural gas heating unit, using the exhaust gas from your central heating to provide heating. Traditional gas line heaters use a dual heat exchange that utilizes the full extent of the energy provided. In contrast, a traditional water heater has a single heat exchanger that vents heat through the exhaust gas, essentially wasting it. 


Solar water heaters use solar panels to provide heating, requiring no additional power to operate and they can function in any climate, making them very cost-effective. Their largest drawback is that they require sun to actually provide heating, and if your home experiences overcasts, your home will not have heating.

Water Heater Replacement Warning Signs

Over time, your water heater will show signs that will warrant a replacement. If ignored, your water heater can pose significant issues to your home such as fire or flooding. Here are signs to look for: 

  • Noticeable corrosion
  • Inconsistent water temperature
  • Water takes significantly longer to warm up
  • Strange noises such as banging
  • Dirty Water
  • Strange smells
  • Leaks from the tank

Your water heater should be replaced every ten years to ensure optimal performance.

While you can install a water heater by yourself, it is highly advised that you hire a professional to ensure it is installed correctly. Water heaters are heavy, and installation can be dangerous if you are inexperienced, so trust a professional. 

Electric heaters take anywhere from 60-120 minutes, gas heaters will take between 30-40 minutes, and solar will take 2-3 hours to heat your water. 

A water heater is an appliance that uses electricity, gas, or coils to heat water for domestic usage. Bathing, cleaning, and hot water for cooking rely on a water heater.
