Tank Water Heaters

Water heaters are essential appliances that use electricity, natural gas, or propane to heat water for domestic use. They come in different sizes and capacities, from small, five-gallon units to massive, 80-gallon tanks. Hot water heaters have various efficiency ratings that can affect their long-term cost, efficiency, and longevity. 

Our company is not here to sell you the most expensive unit just to make a quick buck. We want to make sure that you get the right product to meet your needs. Our Austin water heater installation technicians can evaluate the size of your home, the number of family members, the average hot water use, and more.

We will always suggest the best water heater to meet your needs, even if it is a smaller unit. We can properly size and select the right water heater for your home, and we provide advice on energy efficiency options and fuel sources. 

Tankless Water Heaters

On-demand water heaters, also known as tankless water heaters, do not require a storage tank. As their name suggests, they heat your water only when you need it. When water passes through the unit, electricity or natural gas heats the water. 

Tankless units are more energy efficient than traditional tanks. They only use energy when hot water is requested, rather than continuously heating a large volume of stored water. Additionally, they tend to last longer than tank models due to their lack of exposed components. On-demand water heaters are available in various sizes and configurations to fit different needs and budgets.

If you’re interested in installing a tankless heater in your home, or maybe you want to upgrade, talk to our team. We won’t steer you wrong. If an on-demand heater is appropriate for your home, we can offer you the latest, most advanced models along with installation, repair, and maintenance.

Commonly Asked Questions

How do I know if my water heater needs repair?

There are several signs that indicate your water heater may need repair, such as no hot water, inadequate hot water, strange noises, leaking tank, foul odor in hot water, discolored or rusty water, water pressure issues, pilot light problems (gas water heaters), circuit breaker tripping (electric water heaters), or high energy bills.

What causes no hot water in a water heater?

No hot water in a water heater can be caused by a faulty heating element, a tripped circuit breaker, a blown fuse, or a thermostat that is not set correctly.

Why is my water heater producing inadequate hot water?

Inadequate hot water in a water heater can be caused by sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank, which insulates the heating element from the water and reduces its efficiency. It can also be caused by an undersized unit for the household's needs.

What should I do if my water heater is leaking?

If your water heater is leaking, it may indicate a serious problem that requires immediate attention. You should contact a professional plumber to diagnose and fix the issue.

How often should I perform maintenance on my water heater?

Regular maintenance is important to keep water heaters running efficiently. It is recommended to drain and flush the tank, adjust the thermostat, test the pressure relief valve, and replace the anode rod annually.

Can I perform water heater maintenance tasks myself?

Some water heater maintenance tasks can be performed by homeowners, such as adjusting the thermostat and testing the pressure relief valve. However, more complex tasks like draining and flushing the tank or replacing the anode rod are best left to professional plumbers.
