The most important thing to know about installing a new water heater is that you must work with qualified technicians. This is not only the safest way to have your new appliance installed in your home, but also the most efficient. You get the job done faster than had you attempted it on your own, and you know that the job will be done properly.
But there are a few more things you should know before you start the installation process. We go into detail below, but feel free to contact us for more information.
You must pick the right size
Tank water heaters come in different sizes. That’s one of the first things you’ll notice when you’re shopping around. Picking the biggest tank you can afford probably is not the best decision, as you’ll end up paying more on monthly bills. But a smaller unit will not give your family a sufficient amount of hot water. Call a technician to make sure you get a system that is the proper size for your home.
There are size limits for electrical water heaters
Homeowners looking for a tank water heater may be dismayed to learn that there are limits to the size you can now have for your home—if your system uses electricity. Then again, if you had a large electrical tank water heater, your bills would be very high anyway. If you want an electric system that is 55 gallons or greater in volume, you should look into a tankless unit, or perhaps a heat pump water heater.
Tank and tankless units have their advantages
Both tank and tankless units have their advantages and disadvantages. People choose tankless water heaters because they are highly efficient, heating water instantly rather than storing hot water and keeping it warm, using the gas or electricity throughout the day. However, tankless units are more costly, and sometimes you need multiple units for a larger household.
Tank water heaters can be efficient too, especially if you choose a Rheem water heater, and they are reliable and durable when properly maintained.
