It's easy to forget about your water heater until it starts acting up. Unfortunately, water heaters always seem to break down at the worst possible times, like right before your morning shower. Fortunately, our Parker Colorado water heater repair experts are always available, no matter when disaster strikes.
Water heaters really aren't made to last forever, and sometimes it makes more sense to replace an aging water heater than to keep repairing it, only to have something else break down.
These are just a few indications - for a proper assessement of your aging water heater, call our Parker, Colorado water heater experts. We'll give you a fair look into your water heater options and help you along whichever path you choose.
It seems like everyone's heard of tankless water heaters, but most people don't know much about them, except that they're supposed to be better than conventional water heaters. In fact, tankless water heaters can have plenty of downsides. First, they can cost several times more than conventional water heaters, but you probably knew that already. What you probably didn't know is that tankless heaters cannot provide instantaneous water delivery. Conventional water heaters always have a collected supply of hot water ready to go at a moment's notice, but tankless water heaters have to sense the demand for hot water, fire up, and only start providing hot water after 15-30 seconds of use. Tankless water heaters also contain more complex and less easily replaceable parts, which may be tricky to work with for other plumbers in Parker. Of course, that shouldn't be a problem for you.
On the upside, tankless heaters really do provide nonstop hot water, which means that you can enjoy an infinitely long, hot shower, or fill up an oversized bath tub with ease. Thanks in part to their higher price tags, many tankless water heaters are also built using incredibly durable parts, meaning that you could look forward to as many as 25 years of use from a single tankless water heater.
When it comes to energy savings, there are many factors at play. It depends on what sort of insulation your old water heater has, what conditions its exposed to, the energy types of both your old water heater and the new one you're considering (gas vs. electric), and the market rates of those resources, which could change at any time.
Fortunately, our Parker plumbers are ready to help you with your decision. While tankless water heaters aren't right for everyone, for some of us they're the absolute perfect solution. Call today to learn if a tankless water heater is right for you.
