Water heaters are among the most relied-upon home appliances. Most of us don’t even realize how much we need hot water, until the water heater acts up. At First Call Heating & Cooling Inc, we offer installation and repair of water heaters in Racine and neighboring areas. Our technicians provide expert service for your home, whether you are looking for a new water heater or need your existing system fixed.
Conventional Water Heaters
A conventional water heater with a storage tank remains the most popular water heater in U.S. homes. The water is heated and held in the storage tank until it is needed. These water heaters are available in sizes that range from 20 to 80 gallons. We can help you determine the best size for your family’s hot water demand.
We can help choose a new water heater based on:
- Fuel type – The fuel type, cost, and availability can influence your decision. Water heaters can be powered by electricity, natural gas, geothermal energy, propane, and solar power.
- Tank size – The size of the storage tank is important for ensuring that your home has enough hot water. You want a model that will meet your hot water demand, but avoid an oversized water heater, as the additional heat loss can increase energy costs.
- Energy efficiency – New water heaters are more energy efficient than ever. We can help you find a water heater with the energy efficiency you want.
- Costs – When considering cost, it is important to consider both the price of the water heater and operational costs. You should also factor in the difference in energy efficiency between the old and new water heater. You may find the lower energy usage helps to subsidize the cost of the new water heater.
Once you have chosen your conventional water heater, proper installation and regular maintenance can help maximize energy efficiency and performance. Water heaters with a storage tank need to be flushed regularly and the temperature valve, pressure, valve, and anode rod need to be inspected periodically.
