PREMIUM HOT WATER HEATERS

Most homeowners don’t give their water heater much thought until they have no hot water. After all, it’s tucked in the corner of a basement or somewhere in the garage. But your water heater is one of the most crucial elements of your home. It enables hot showers and sanitary cooking conditions, as well as a multitude of essential household functions.

1st Call Plumbing, Heating & Air is here for San Antonio, New Braunfels, Boerne, and surrounding area residents who require water heater repairs, installation, and routine maintenance. Instead of installing your water heater and forgetting about it until it breaks, invest in regular maintenance. And if it is approaching the end of its lifespan (between 8 to 12 years), be proactive and replace it now. We’re here to help you keep your home comfortable to live in throughout the year.

UNDERSTANDING HOW DIFFERENT WATER HEATERS WORK

Storage water heaters maintain a reservoir of hot water, allowing for simultaneous uses but suffer from standby heat loss, leading to energy waste. They are cheaper initially and last 10-15 years.

In contrast, tankless water heaters heat water on demand, eliminating standby heat loss, making them 8%-34% more efficient and potentially saving over $100 annually with an ENERGY STAR model. They last about 20 years but have a higher upfront cost and a limited hot water output of 2-5 gallons per minute, which might necessitate additional units for high demand.

TRADITIONAL WATER HEATERS

Visually, the most significant difference between this option and a tankless water heater is the tank. Traditional water heaters bring cold water into the tank, heat the water inside the tank, and then disperses it through the home as needed. Once the hot water is gone, the tank fills with more cold water, and the process repeats.

The advantages include lower up-front costs and hot water during power outages. As for the disadvantages, conventional water heaters aren’t as energy-efficient, and they take time to heat water once the hot water supply is gone.

TANKLESS WATER HEATERS

Tankless water heaters are a newer innovation and work by heating water directly without the use of a water storage tank. Crucially, the water heater only operates when a hot water faucet or showerhead is activated. People enjoy tankless water heaters due to the nearly limitless supply of hot water and their energy efficiency.

However, they’re not always ideal for families on a budget due to the higher up-front cost. At 1st Call, we offer financing options (with approved credit) and discounts to make your purchase more convenient.
