Selecting a New Water Heater

The first step in installing a water heater is selecting a model that fits your Orange County home’s needs. We do this by measuring the total water used by your household in its busiest hour. For instance, at 7am each day when everyone in your home is getting ready to leave the house, how much hot water will be needed for showers, breakfast, and other uses? This allows us to select a model that is the right size for your home. You do not want an oversized water heater that you have no need for; however, you want to be sure that you and your family will have all the hot water you need to maintain a comfortable lifestyle.

Another factor to consider is whether a tank or tankless water heater is right for you. Tank heaters are inexpensive to install but can cost much more to operate in the future as they continuously heat water in the tank even when no one is home. A tankless model is more expensive to install but feature a lower cost of overall operation.

Gas vs. Electric Water Heaters: Which is Best for Orange County?

If you decide you would like a tank model water heater for your Orange County home, the next decision to make is how you will heat the water in the tank. We will help you decide between a gas or electric heating tank. If you are replacing an existing tank water heater, it may make the most sense to choose a similar model. It is important to keep in mind the pros and cons of both gas and electric models when choosing which is right for your home. Gas costs less to operate and can be more efficient overtime, but an electric water heater is easier to install and has a cheaper upfront cost. We can help you decide which option is best based on your needs.

The Water Heater Installation Process

Once you select a new water heater for your home, the installation process can begin. During this process we will remove your existing water heater and ensure that whatever new system you have selected can be installed without heavy modifications. If modifications are needed, we will make them at this point.
