A good hot water heater is a necessity for every home. If your water heater is not working as well as you would like it to, it may be time to think about replacing it. Don’t think you have to put up with long wait times for hot water or inconsistent delivery. You can have a high quality water heater designed to meet the demands of your home installed for a reasonable price in a very short period of time.
Water heaters are essential, but they are not particularly complicated pieces of equipment. Because of this, they are relatively easy to install and maintain. The latest hot water heater models are fuel efficient and quite effective at providing your entire house with hot water when you need it, provided they are sized, installed and maintained properly.
For that, however, you need to have an expert on your side that can guide you through the new hot water heater selection process and help you make an informed decision about which model is best for you. Boulden Plumbing has been installing both traditional and tankless water heaters in the greater Wilmington & Dover, DE area for years. Call us today and we’ll help you get started down the road to a new water heater today.
Did you know that different water heaters have different energy efficiency ratings? Each water heater has an EF (energy factor) rating, which tells you how efficiently the unit is able to turn energy into heat. The higher the EF, the more energy efficient the water heater – look for EF ratings as close to 1 as possible. For more information about choosing a water heater, give us a call today!
Water Heater Types & Sizes
Particularly now that tankless water heaters are so widely available, one of the most important and challenging aspects of picking out a water heater is making sure the one you choose is the right size and type for your household. In order to do this, you will need to have a good estimate of how much hot water you use on a regular basis and what kind of demand there will be at any given time of day.
After all, it does you little good to have a state of the art water heater installed if it is not large enough to satisfy all of your family’s hot water needs. While it may be a great piece of equipment, an improperly sized water heater will still leave you waiting for your shower to warm up if the washing machine is running at the same time or if someone is using hot water elsewhere in the house.
Calculating your household hot water demand can certainly be a challenge, though, particularly because it is probably not something you have ever had occasion to do before. That is why having the assistance of an experienced professional can make such a difference. Our experts will help you figure out just how much hot water you need at peak times in your household. With that information, you will be able to select the right size and type of water heater to suit your needs.
