We all need hot water. From washing our hands, to taking a shower and cleaning dishes. But when it comes time to replace or update your hot water heater, how do you know which one is the right one?
Our team is more than happy to help you assess your needs and match you with a water heater that will best suit your property and lifestyle. But if you’re looking for some easy ways to choose one on your own, consider the following criteria.
Fuel Type: Is your home or business outfitted for electric or gas appliances? What fuel/energy types are readily available, and how much does each cost?
Size/Capacity: What type of demand for hot water does your household have? How many family members, how many appliances that use hot water, and so on. There’s nothing more frustrating than running out of hot water in the middle of a shower or when trying to clean dishes.
Energy Efficiency: How efficient is the hot water heater at transforming energy into hot water? Look for models with the Energy Star certification, and compare usage costs.
Brand: Research the brand to ensure that you’re buying from a reputable manufacturer with a strong track record of producing high-quality hot water heaters.
Price: We all have a budget to adhere to.
Warranty: Some warranties are significantly better than others. Be sure to read the fine print and see exactly what is and isn’t covered, and for how long.
