Hot Water Heater Installation Consultation

We will visit your home or business to understand your needs and the structure of your home. As part of the consultation, we may take measurements and will take a look at your existing hot water heater.

Household size is one of the primary factors in determining the size of your new water heater. We will make sure you have sufficient hot water during peak use. Our team will make sure to take into account larger storage tank styles versus tankless hot water heaters.

After we evaluate your home and needs, we’ll reach out to you with a quote and pricing options.

HOW DO I KNOW I NEED A NEW HOT WATER HEATER?

The typical lifespan of a water heater is 10 to 12 years. For electric water heaters, the heating element inside the tank can eventually corrode causing significant loss of heating. For gas water heaters, the heating components can eventually become inefficient and require a replacement. We recommend new hot water heaters because it doesn’t make sense to spend money on something that is past its prime and may need repair again in the near future.
