We’re talking about a nice hot shower or bath, of course.
Come to think of it, it’s our job – and privilege – to make sure you have all the hot water you need…morning, noon, and night.
For starters, we recommend an annual water heater performance and safety inspection. Over time, any water heater will gradually lose efficiency; however, with regular maintenance, we can help your system last longer while minimizing or perhaps even eliminating potential repairs. If you have a gas water heater, annual maintenance is doubly important so we can routinely be on the lookout for a possible gas or carbon monoxide leak.
For your added peace of mind, 1st Class Plumbing provides ongoing maintenance and high quality repairs for most makes and models of residential water heaters. So if it’s been a year or longer since it’s been professionally inspected or currently is not performing up to par, contact us now for prompt and professional service.
If it’s time for a new or replacement system, we have to more to offer you than ever before:
Equally important, we can explain the ramifications of the energy-saving regulations that took effect in April, 2015. Under the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA), gas and electric water heaters with less than 55 gallons in storage capacity are now 2” wider and 2” taller than previous models.
Why is that important? Because if you live in a condo, and your 50 gallon unit just fits the available space, a replacement 50 gallon system won’t…at least not without some creative thinking and perhaps a little home remodeling.
If you’re considering buying a replacement water heater with more than 50 gallons of storage capacity, you’re in for even bigger changes. In this size category, gas and electric water heaters, as you once knew them, no longer exist. They’ve been replaced by gas condensing water heaters and electric hybrid heat pump models. With the latter, you can cut your home energy expenses by up to $300 and more per year.
Or, maybe it’s time to do away with the tank altogether and switch to a tankless water heater.
Contact us today to schedule the service you need, or to request a free in-home quote on a new or replacement system. At that time, we’ll explain your options and take all the time you need to answer your question. That’s the way we do things here at 1st Class Plumbing.
