Water Heater Choices

Gas Water Heaters

Gas water heaters are fueled by either natural gas or propane gas. This type of heater consists of a large tank where water is heated. Within the tank, gas burners heat the water. Gas hot water heaters are generally less costly to operate than electric heaters. They also heat water faster. However, they must be vented to the outside and installed properly to function safely. They also require regular gas line inspection.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters provide continuous hot water heated directly on demand. They utilize gas or electricity to power heating elements. There is no tank. Benefits include energy cost savings, reduced space, and continuous hot water. Tankless heaters typically last longer than other types but have a higher upfront cost. Proper installation is vital so that they efficiently heat water when needed.

Electric Water Heaters

Electric water heaters rely solely on electricity for fuel. They also make use of a storage tank which is heated by electric-powered heating coils or elements at the bottom or sides of the tank. Electric heaters are very efficient but the cost of operating them depends on local utility rates. They require no venting to heat water. Their electrical components need replacement eventually as well.

Convert To Tankless For Environmentally-Friendly Savings

Converting from a standard water heater to a tankless system offers numerous benefits for homeowners. Tankless water heaters provide an essentially-endless supply of hot water, ensuring you never run out during busy mornings or long showers. They are also more energy-efficient, heating water on demand rather than constantly maintaining a large tank’s temperature. This results in lower energy bills and a reduced environmental impact. Additionally, tankless systems have a longer lifespan and take up less space compared to traditional tank heaters.

Hot Water Circulation Pumps & Expansion Tanks Installed

Hot water circulation pumps are a welcome addition to any busy home’s plumbing system. They work by continuously circulating hot water through the pipes, and that ensures hot water is readily available at all fixtures without delay. This means no more waiting for the shower to heat up or wasting water while the tap runs until it reaches the desired temperature. Circulation pumps can also help reduce energy costs by minimizing the amount of water that needs to be heated. On top of those advantages to you, they can extend the life of your water heater by reducing the number of times it needs to cycle on and off to maintain the desired water temperature.

Expansion tanks are another valuable component of a home’s plumbing system. When water is heated, it expands, which can cause pressure to build up in the pipes and water heater. Without an expansion tank, this pressure can lead to leaks, damage to the water heater, and even burst pipes. An expansion tank provides a space for the expanding water to flow into, relieving pressure on the system and preventing damage. This not only extends the life of your water heater and plumbing but also helps prevent costly repairs and water damage to your home. If you’re interested in installing a hot water circulation pump or expansion tank, contact GPS Plumbing for expert guidance and professional installation services.

Common Types Of Water Heater Problems

We have over twenty years of experience helping families get their hot water back, and we’ve seen it all. Here are some common signs that you need to get in touch about repairing or replacing your unit.

  • Leaking Tanks: Water leaking from the tank often indicates corroded tanks or loose fittings.
  • Sediment Buildup: Minerals from hard water accumulating in the tank reduces efficiency and can cause corrosion.
  • Rusty Water: Rust particles from internal corrosion contaminate the hot water.
  • Noisy Heating: Knocking, popping or rumbling noises point to excessive sediment or buildup of pressure.
  • Water Odor: Sulfurous smells signal bacteria growth inside the tank.
  • Low Hot Water Levels: Inadequate hot water supply can indicate problems with clogged heaters or troublesome thermostats.
  • Cloudy Water: White/gray residues in the hot water indicate the tank needs to be flushed.
  • High Energy Bills: Higher utility costs suggest a faulty thermostat or inefficient system.
  • Lazy Ignitions: Delayed or weak ignitions indicate a malfunctioning pilot control.
  • Frequent Shutdowns: Frequent automatic safety shutdowns signify improper venting or a defective thermocouple.
