Electric Hot Water Heater Installation

If your water heater is near the end of its service life, it may be time to install a new unit. We evaluate your hot water needs and make recommendations for the best electric water heater that will provide comfort and lower utility bills. Although there are many brands and types available, not all are suitable for all situations. We look at the advantages of source-point tankless units, whole-house units and storage water heaters. Our goal is to make sure your household or business has an adequate supply of hot water when it is most needed.

We work with many brands of electric hot water heaters. Although some brands have more features or are more energy-efficient, we consider the best electric water heater to be the one that provides the most comfort and convenience and is within your budget.

Electric Hot Water Heater Repair Services

Our licensed plumbers will come to your home or business to evaluate the problem with your water heater and make recommendations. An electric water heater should last between eight and 12 years. We will evaluate the age and condition of the unit as we inspect it and determine the problem.

If you notice that your electric bills have increased unexpectedly, an old water heater may be causing the problem. If the unit requires frequent repairs or if main components, such as the thermostat or heating coil, have failed, it may be more cost-effective to replace the unit than repair it. We will talk with you about repair expenses, energy efficiency and how long it takes to recoup the cost of a new unit through lower utility bills.

Electric Hot Water Heater Maintenance

The best way to keep your water heater working efficiently is to schedule annual maintenance. Maintenance ensures that the unit performs properly and reduces energy usage. In addition, regular maintenance can extend the life of the unit.

During an annual maintenance checkup, our licensed technicians will examine each component of the unit, including emergency shutoff valves, electrical connections and wiring, thermostat, heating element and tank. We drain and flush the tank to remove built-up sediments that reduce heating efficiency. We check cold water intake and hot water output pipes for leaks or damage. We also examine the anode rod for corrosion or damage.

As part of a maintenance checkup, we look at where the electric hot water heater is installed. If it is in an unconditioned space, such as an attic, garage or basement, we usually recommend insulating the tank and pipes. Wrapping the unit can reduce heat loss by as much as 45% and reduce heating costs by as much as 9%.
