Water heaters typically last around 10 Years on average. Your standard tank water heater is relatively inexpensive to operate and maintain. However many us never really think about it until it either stops servicing our hot water needs or it burst and floods our home. It is good to start considering a new water heater between 7-10 years. Most manufacturers warranty them for 6 years.

Whether you would like to install a conventional gas or electric water heater, or a more efficient power vent or direct vent tanked heater we can professionally install them for you.
Our typical install includes, expansion tank, drain pan, shut off ball valve and high quality State or A.O. Smith water heater.
If you decide that you would like more hot water and save some floor space in your home, we can install a tank less water heater. We install Navien and Rinnai water heaters. These will supply you hot water until you turn the water off. However these are more complex units and require yearly servicing. The inside heat exchanger must cleaned out as mineral deposits will form inside with normal use.
