Hot water at the turn of a knob is genuinely one of the wonders of modern society. Throughout most of human history, the best way to get hot water was boiling water on a fire, and that isn’t exactly conducive to the luxury of daily showers most of us have become accustomed to.

Whether you’re looking for a traditional water heater to replace the one that’s been in your garage for years, or want to upgrade to the newer technology of a tankless unit, Earl’s Plumbing has you covered!

Different Types Of Water Heaters

Water heaters come in many different types and models, all of which provide their pros and cons when used. The professionals here at Earl’s Plumbing are confident that we will be able to assess your situation and provide you with the best information and resources possible so that you can make the most informed decisions when it comes to buying a water heater. The types of water heater you’ll find on the market today include:

  • Natural gas tank heaters – These are the traditional water heaters most of us grew up with. They provide hot water by keeping a limited reservoir of water hot at all times with a natural gas pilot light. They’re reliable and efficient at providing hot water but rely on fossil fuels and can only provide as much hot water as held in the reservoir.
  • Electric tank heaters – These types of water heaters are essentially the same as the gas variety except instead of using gas as a heat source, the tank is heated with a series of electric elements such as you would find on an electric stove. These units have the benefit of not requiring a gas line, requiring less maintenance and being cheaper to install. However, over the long term, gas is cheaper than electricity as a fuel source, and electric tank heaters tend to cost more monthly.
  • Tankless heaters – Perhaps the most innovative of the bunch, tankless water heaters provide access to essentially unlimited hot water by using a natural gas pilot light to heat water as needed. These units are great because they provide as much hot water as you could use but do have some drawbacks in that not maintaining a constant source of hot water creates some inefficiencies in specific situations.

Regardless of your needs, we guarantee that we’ll have the solution for your water heating needs! We strive to provide the highest quality local water heater replacement possible.

How Long Should Water Heaters Last?

Like every piece of equipment, water heaters have a life expectancy, and all of them will eventually need to be replaced. Some types have a tendency to last longer than others. On average, the number of years you can expect from each type of hot water heater is as follows:

  • Natural gas tank heaters – 8-12 years
  • Electric tank heaters – 10-15 years
  • Tankless hot water heaters – 15-25 years

Tankless heaters clearly take the cake in regard to longevity. This doesn’t mean that each type of heater doesn’t still have its place, and our qualified plumbers are here to help you find the best fit for you!
