Call us for Fast and Affordable Water Heater Installation

Your water heater is probably the most used plumbing appliance at home, as it runs around the clock, maintaining your hot water temperature. Your water heater never stops working, watching over your family’s needs for years to come. Some boilers will struggle along the way, as their systems become less efficient due to aging and hard water conditions. We service all local cities including Rio Rancho Water Heater Installation.

New Water Heaters Are More Efficient - They Can Save Money & Energy

If it’ s an old-fashioned storage tank water heater nearing the end its 10 to 13- year lifespan, replacing it is obvious: Newer models are up to 20 percent more efficient and can save between $700 and $1,100 in energy costs over the lifetime of the unit.

Tankless Water Heaters - On Demand Water Heaters

We can help you choose a water heating system that will best meet your needs and fit within your budget. Tankless water heaters are “on-demand” water heaters. They do not store water at a hot temperature. They use a heat exchanger to heat flowing water as it is delivered to your fixtures. They can be gas or electric but for electric a high capacity breaker and wiring are usually necessary. Contact us to find out the details of your situation.

With tankless water heaters, the number to look for when buying a new one is its gallons per minute (GPM) rating. That’s the number of gallons of hot water that the heater can deliver per minute. The higher the GPM, the more hot water it can deliver. If you have a large family and multiple bathrooms, a high-GPM tankless water heater will be best for you. For example, a typical shower uses between 2.5 and 3 gallons per minute (GPM). Older washers may use anywhere from 7 gallons to 32 gallons per load. 

Standard Tank Water Heaters

When your hot water heater needs to be replaced, there are times when it makes sense to replace it. If the tank is older than 10 years or if there is any sign of leakage, you will probably need a new installation. If there’s water under the water heater, it’s likely that your water heater needs to be replaced.

Most standard residential water heater sizes are 40 to 50 gallons. We can furnish both gas and electric water heaters.

A typical tank water heater holds between 40, 50, or even 55 gallons. You should buy a tank based on the number of people who live in your home and your highest expected peak water usage. For example, a family of four might use several showers, run the dishes through the dishwasher, and do a load or two of washing on an average day, which could total 100 gallons of hot water. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that a household needs a hundred-gallon storage tank either.

For storage tank water heater, it’s important to look at the first-hour rating. It’s the number of gallons a heater can deliver in an one hour period when the tank is full. You can find the FHR on the EnergyGuide label. For water heaters under 55 gallons, there’s a 4 percent increase in efficiency. For water heaters 55 gallons and up, there’s an efficiency gain of 25 to 50 percent depending on whether the water heater uses a gas or electric heating element. Don’t assume that a new unit will fit where your old unit was. Newer models of water heaters may be wider and taller than older models.
