Types of Water Heaters
Our plumbing team has experience installing and servicing all types of water heaters. Choose us if you need any of the following repaired or replaced:
- Gas water heaters: As a clean, energy-efficient, and cost-effective fuel source, natural gas is one of the most popular ways to power a water heater. Over the years, we have installed and repaired hundreds of gas water heaters, so we’re confident we can meet your needs.
- Electric water heaters: For homes without natural gas lines, electric water heaters are a logical choice. Electricity is also the energy source behind alternative fuel water heaters.
- Storage water heaters: Insulated tanks hold 60+ gallons of hot water so it’s ready whenever you need it. This conventional water heater style may be powered with gas or electricity.
- Tankless water heaters: Do away with the standby heat loss of a storage tank by switching to a tankless water heater. These systems are among the most energy-efficient on the market, and they offer an endless supply of hot water.
- Heat pump water heaters: With their exceptional energy efficiency, heat pump water heaters can save you significantly on your utility bills. They collect warmth from the air to heat your water supply and are powered by electricity.
- Solar water heaters: A roof-mounted solar cell makes it possible to heat your water with the power of the sun. Then, a backup power system ensures you always have hot water, even at night or on cloudy days.

How are storage and tankless water heaters different?
Storage water heaters operate by continuously heating and storing water to be used throughout your home for bathing, doing dishes, and washing laundry. Tank-style water heaters tend to lack energy efficiency because they must keep refilling and heating water in large batches.
Tankless water heaters are considered much more energy-efficient as they heat your water on demand and will provide you with the exact amount of hot water you need, right when you need it. While tankless water heaters tend to have a higher initial cost than traditional tank style, they have a longer projected service life, will inevitably save you money on your energy bill, and require very little maintenance.
