Water Heater Installation
Before you set up your installation appointment, work with one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff members to find out what system will work best for your home. Getting the right water heater in terms of size, efficiency and function is entirely necessary to make a good investment. One of our plumbing technicians can come out to your property to examine your current plumbing system and home layout to help you choose the best new water heater.
When you purchase a new water heater, it’s important to ensure that the system is set up properly in order to get the full benefit of this home investment. McLay can even repipe your home to fix any odd piping jobs that were done by previous plumbers. A quality system will help give you the convenience of quick access to hot water; however, a poorly run plumbing system can create inconsistency and delays in your access to hot water. This has nothing to do with your new water heater, and everything to do with how it’s able to send water to your different appliances, sinks, and faucets throughout your home.
Tankless Water Heater Vs. Tank Water Heater
Debating which water heater is best for your home? There are a few key factors to take into consideration:
- How much water do you use each day?
- Does your home have a gas line?
- What is your current budget for a water heater?
A traditional water heater will hold a typical day’s worth of water (30-50 gallons). It’s significantly cheaper upfront than a tankless unit. Natural gas tank water heaters are going to use around half the energy of an electric tank unit. However, there are a few drawbacks when compared to a tankless system. Tankless systems are, as their name states, without a tank and take up less space. A tank system is also going to use more energy than a tankless system, as it has to heat up its entire supply of water each time it’s in use. Having to heat up 30+ gallons of water at once, rather than the 2-3 gallons that a tankless system will heat up at a time, will also create a delay in when you run out of hot water from a tank water heater. Tankless systems have a more efficient design and concept, which also shows in its lifespan. So while you may be paying significantly more upfront for a tankless system, you will likely save more in the long-run through monthly energy savings and may get an extra 5-10 years of runtime over a traditional tank system.
