Water Heaters

Looking for a new installation or replacement systems? We can install a quality energy efficient gas, oil or electric water heaters.

  • Tank Storage - Quality brands like Burnhamr, Utica, Weil-Maclaine and more. High-efficiency gas storage water heaters employ the same technology as standard gas storage water heaters: a glass-lined steel tank is heated by a burner located at the bottom of the tank. But a few basic changes make them operate more efficiently. How it works -High efficiency models simply have better insulation, heat traps, and more efficient burners, improvements that have a modest impact on price but increase efficiency by about 7.5%. To increase efficiency further, manufacturers may add a power vent to accelerate the venting of combustion gases. This will increase the installed cost, but savings are also greater.
  • Tankless Hot Water Heaters - High Efficiency brands like A.O. Smith, Bosch, Rinnai and more. Whole-home tankless water heaters apply the same principle to heat water as standard water heaters, but without a storage tank. They save energy by heating water only when needed, eliminating energy lost during standby operation. Longer life expectancy than any conventional tank-type heater. How it works - When hot water tap is turned on, cold water is drawn into the water heater. A flow sensor activates the burner and warms the heat exchanger. Incoming cold water encircles the heat exchanger and leaves the heater at its set-point temperature. Heating water only when needed, instead of maintaining a tank full of hot water, tankless water heaters can achieve greater efficiency than standard tank-type water heaters.
  • Indirect Tank Storage - Quality brands like Amtrol, Burnham, SuperStor, Weil-Maclaine and more. Uses the main furnace or boiler to heat a fluid that's circulated through a heat exchanger in the storage tank. The energy stored by the water tank allows the furnace to turn on and off less often, which saves energy. How it works - When hot water tap is turned on, cold water is drawn into the water heater. A flow sensor activates the burner and warms the heat exchanger. Incoming cold water encircles the heat exchanger and leaves the heater at its set-point temperature.
