Water heaters can be broken down into two major categories and then into subcategories; each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Conventional Water Heaters

Conventional water heaters use a tank to store hot water that can be used later but often take considerable time to replenish the hot water supply if used frequently. Different types of conventional water heaters include:

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters deliver hot water on demand rather than storing it for future use. Because it doesn't have to store hot water until it's used, tankless water heaters can save on energy compared to conventional water heaters. Different types of tankless water heaters include:

Common Water Heater Questions

How often should my water heater be serviced?

It is a good idea to have your water heater inspected and serviced once a year. Water heaters need routine maintenance to stay reliable and efficient.

What does water heater maintenance involve?

A typical service visit for a water heater will include testing the thermostat and controls, inspecting the electrical and plumbing connections, testing the pressure relief valve, and more. On standard water heaters, the plumber will drain the tank to remove sediment, among other visual checks, to ensure your unit is working properly. Suggestions may be made to extend the life of your water heater.

How long will my water heater last?

With proper maintenance, a standard water heater will typically last between eight to 10 years. Tankless models can last 20 to 25 years before a water heater replacement becomes necessary.

Can I replace my water heater with a tankless model?

In most cases, a conventional water heater can easily be replaced by a tankless water heater with just a bit of planning and preparation. However, in some cases, gas service or electrical upgrades may be necessary to provide the higher instantaneous energy required for on-demand water heating.

Why is my water heater leaking?

If you spot a leak near your water heater, ensure the drain valve is closed and check the pressure relief valve for leaks, as they routinely fail. If neither is the source of the leak, the tank itself may be leaking, which would require a water heater replacement.

Which water heater is most efficient?

We offer multiple styles and upgrades, but we're always asked about our most energy-efficient option. See the chart below from the U.S. Government Energy Guide to see the average cost for the type of water heater you're looking at.
