WATER HEATER REPAIR & INSTALLATION

No one likes surprises. An adequate water heater is one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home. The water heater needs to provide hot water for your entire family on a daily basis, which means having enough hot water for baths, dish washing, clothes washing and simple hand washing in the bathroom, the kitchen, and the laundry room. Bob Larson Plumbing is happy to help you choose the right water heater for your home. We can repair or install whatever you select. Your decision will mean hot water when you need it for years to come.

If your current water heater is over eight years old, then it should be time for a new one. First, you’ll want to decide which type of heater suits you: tank storage, or tankless.

TANK STORAGE HEATER

  • When purchasing, you must choose between gas or electric: this depends on the utility options in your home. Tank storage works the same whether you use gas or electric, but they have different benefits depending on your budget.
  • With tank storage, water is kept and maintained at a warm temperature. When you turn on hot water anywhere in your home, it gets pulled directly from the tank, while cold water replaces it and gets heated again.
  • A tank heater must be the right size for your household: the larger the family, the larger the tank. Bob Larson Plumbing can help determine how much water you’ll need to stay hot during peak hours.
  • Once you’ve decided on the type and size of your new heater, it’s time for “out with the old, and in with the new.” We’ll haul away old heaters and install the new one in only a few hours. This can all be done with minimal disruption of your family’s routine.

TANKLESS WATER HEATER

  • For tankless models, electrical renovations are added in each room with a water fixture, such as the kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms.
  • Instead of storing and maintaining water, tankless systems simply heat water as you use it, saving money in utility costs. While they’re more to purchase and install, in the long run they’ll save you money.
  • If you have a smaller home or household which uses less water, a tankless water heater may be right for you.
  • After removing your old tank, plumbing and electrical installation for your new tankless heater could take a day or a little longer. We’ll schedule the project so it works right with you, leaving minimal interruption with your family’s routine.
