Which Type of Water Heater Is Right for You?

If you are in the market for a new water heater in Fairfax, there are two types to consider: a traditional tank model or a tankless water heater. A storage tank model stores hot water in a tank until it is needed, while a tankless version heats water upon demand.

There are many benefits to using a tankless water heater. Some of these advantages include:

  • Cost Savings – Annual energy costs are going through the roof. Many families are paying hundreds of dollars every month to fill their cars with gas. Electricity is no different. Even homes fueled by natural gas have seen increases in annual expenditures. Because tankless water heaters don’t have to keep 50 gallons (or 70 or 100!) of water hot all the time, they are much more efficient. The typical annual cost savings is around $100 and much more for larger families.
  • Tankless Water Heaters Make Lots of Hot Water – Even with a larger 75-gallon tank, a traditional water heater will still run out of hot water relatively quickly. Try filling a bathtub for a little one while running the dishwasher and then taking a shower. You’ll be cold fast! With a tankless water heater, there is no limit to the supply of hot water.

That being said, there are two main drawbacks to the tankless systems. The primary drawback is the upfront cost. There is no doubt that tankless systems are more expensive to buy and to install than traditional tank systems. The second issue is that you need natural gas running to your house. Beyond that, you can’t beat the tankless water heater for efficiency or for its usability. It wins every time.

Water Heater Replacement Sizes

Depending on the size of your home and family, you may require a small or large unit. Typically, two people will only need a model that holds 30-40 gallons, a family of four will require a 40-50 gallon version, and more than five people will need a 50-80 gallon unit. The size of your storage area also plays a role in the size and type that will work best for your home.

Whether it is a new tankless water heater or a traditional style, we can repair and install any type of water heater.

Happy Customers

  • “I was very happy with the service I received. The technicians were prompt, polite and knowledgeable. They allowed me to explain the trouble I had with the toilets and quickly went to access the situation to determine the problem. Once the problem was identified Darin and his coworker explained thoroughly what needed to be done before beginning work.”

  • “Rihine was amazing! Well experienced electrician who explained exactly what was wrong and how he could fix it. Our dining room light fixture had got wet / soaked from a leak in the ceiling. He uninstalled it, took it down, took it apart, cleaned it and replaced it. Thank you Rihine, we now have light in our dining room!”

  • Jonathan and Genti are our go-to experts!

    “We took advantage of an inspection promotion from My Plumber, knowing our 50+ year old house had some concerns. Genti arrived and pointed out which valves and fixtures were aging, and patiently explained a potential path forward to avoid any problems. We'll make a plan and look forward to having Genti back to update our home. Then Jonathan arrived, and he was great at looking at the furnace and our crazy RELAC system, which he was familiar with. He changed our filter and helped me to understand how the furnace worked with the NEST and made sure it was in top shape. Our furnace is fairly new, but he was outstanding at explaining routine maintenance and how we can keep it running in top shape. What a great guy! I'm super impressed with your employees! I'm so delighted with MyPlumber and this care in looking out for our older home, I signed up for the Priority Club today. Thanks to Jonathan and Genti for keeping our peace of mind with our aging house systems, and being so patient with my questions and our curious pets.”

  • He was even nice enough to give alternate options for completing the work.

    “My plumber, John, was great! He came in, assessed the situation, and went to work. He was even nice enough to give alternate options for completing the work. I truly appreciate his professionalism, kindness, and honesty with this home repair. I will definitely call my plumber again AND I will request John for service (hopefully he’ll be available 😁).”
