Save money, space and time with a new water heater
Is your home in need of a water heater? Maybe you are considering a bathroom addition or remodel and need a larger capacity water heater? Or is it possible your existing water is in disrepair?
Whatever the case may be, Affordable Plumbing and Heat can provide and install a variety of energy efficient water heaters. We can suggest options based on your budget, space and capacity needs.
Ideally you will want to repair an existing water heater as opposed to buying a new one. We can examine your existing water heater and determine if it can be repaired. A corroded storage-tank needs to be replaced, but a leaky drain or pressure-relief valve, or a burned-out heating element can often be fixed. Consumer Reports, states that you should consider repairing if the labor cost (which warranties often exclude) averages less than $50 per year over the years left in the warranty. Otherwise, buy a new one, especially if the warranty has expired.
Factors you will want to consider when choosing a new hot water heater are how much capacity you need in your home. If your family is growing it might be time to buy a larger hot water heater. Additionally there are many new types of water heaters beyond the standard storage tank heaters.
There are tankless water heaters, electric water heaters, propane water heaters and hybrid electric water heaters. Affordable Plumbing and Heat can provide and install any of them and advise you on the best choice for your home.
