What to know before you go shopping for a new water heater.

Are you in the market for a new water heater?

Types of water heaters

Some more things to consider when you’re looking at what type of water heater to choose include:

Type of fuel

The fuel you use to heat your water will affect how much it costs – sometimes dramatically. The most common fuels are oil, gas, and electricity. We can help you decide which works best for your home and your needs.

Water heater size

You need to heat enough water at a time to meet your family’s need for hot water. But you also don’t want to spend money paying to heat water you won’t use. We’ll discuss your home’s hot water needs so you get the right size.

Energy efficiency

Right-sizing, the efficiency rating of the water heater itself, proper installation and maintenance, and other factors affect efficiency.

Total Cost of Ownership

It’s not just the sale price and installation costs that matter. Take into account the other costs over time like energy costs and life expectancy.
