Water Heating Services
Water Heater Installation
Have a new construction project that needs a water heater installed? Have you purchased a water heater and need professional installation? We can help.
Our knowledgeable service members are educated on every type of water heater and can professionally install the heater that your building needs. When choosing a type of water heater, you have to be aware of how much water your building needs to function on a day to day basis. If you have a three-story home with 5 people, you’ll need a larger water tank than a ranch style home with 2 people. We can help you make an educated water heater purchase. In particular, we specialize in the gas water heaters, electric water heaters, and tankless water heaters.
Gas water heaters are a very common, traditional option for many home and business owners in the Colorado Springs area, especially if the building already has an existing gas line. You’ll find gas water heaters in older homes, as it was a very popular choice due to the availability of gas lines placed beneath many neighborhoods and cities. Gas tanks can hold many gallons of water, ranging anywhere from 10 to 60 gallons (and more, occasionally), and can heat water quickly.
Electric water heaters depend on electricity to heat the gallons it has stored in its tank. Electric water heaters generally have a lower upfront cost than gas water heaters or tankless water heaters, and often last longer.
Tankless water heaters are rapidly growing in popularity in the Colorado Springs area, as they are the most energy-efficient option. Tankless water heaters only heat the water that flows through the pipe when you turn on a faucet or a dishwasher. It only heats what needs to be heated. These are smaller than tank options, as they simply mount on the wall. Tankless water heaters have a higher upfront cost, but could save you money in the long run.
Water Heater Replacement
If you have an old and outdated water heater in your home, you could be putting your house at serious risk. The same goes for a commercial water heater. There are several indicators when your water heater needs to be replaced. Taking a few minutes to analyze your water heater performance can help you determine if it is time for replacement. Being proactive now can help eliminate inconvenience or unforeseen damage if your tank should suddenly go out.
What are the signs that an old water heater is ready to be replaced?
Age - A gas water heater is expected to last 10-12 years, while an electric model tends to last 10-15 years. If your heater is getting close to its life expectancy, it may be prudent to change it before it goes out or starts leaking. A general rule of thumb is, if your water heater is over 10 years old, it should get inspected to evaluate its performance and overall health.
Water - Do you get tinted water when you open up the hot water tap? Rust-colored hot water is an indication of a bad tank.
Temperature - If your hot water is not as hot or if you run out of hot water under normal conditions, it may be time for a new water heater.
Moisture - Moisture around the base may signal a slow leak. If condensation is building up at an abnormal rate, this is not normal, and you should call in a professional right away.
Cold Water - An ice-cold shower first thing in the morning is a pretty good sign that something is wrong!
Puddles - A flood in the area around the water heater is a sure sign that you need a new one.
