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.

  • “My Plumber has just worked themselves to become my favorite plumbing company. I was faced with an expensive plumbing problem and wondered for months how I was going to fix it. Several plumbing companies came and looked at the issue, charged me for the time spent to consider the issue, and left saying they could not fix it. I called for an entirely different issue of removing an object stuck in one of our school's toilets. I happened to unconvincingly asked them if they did mechanical plumbing. They said yes. I felt that the outcome was going to be the same as the other companies that look at the plumbing issue. To my surprise, they told me they could fix the issue. My thoughts then went to the fee it would require to fix it. They quoted a fee that was 1/4 of what I was previously quoted by any company. I could not believe it. Right away, i told them to go ahead with the work. The work was completed without any problem. My staff members all told what nice gentlement they were while working on this issue. They did the work with a smile despite the difficult nature of it. Thank you, Josh and crew!”

    “Garfield, Derek and crew did a splendid job of removing and replacing our Furnace and Airconditioning system. They arrived early in the AM and worked throughout the day with out a break to insure completion of the job and not leave us without a working system. They were very thorough, proficient and friendly - offering suggestions and explaining the new system's features and procedures. We are very pleased with the installation and the support we received.”
