What to Consider Prior to Your Water Heater Installation

There are a number of different appliances and systems that we use in our homes each and every day. Few, though, see quite as heavy a usage as our water heaters do. A number of different day to day activities demand a steady supply of hot water, including showering, washing the dishes, doing the laundry, and simply cleaning up before dinner. Considering just how much you are going to be using your new water heater, it seriously pays off to consider long and hard which new water heater you are going to invest in. There are a number of different options to keep in mind, but don’t worry. The pros on our staff will ensure that you have the ideal water heater in Collinsville, IL for your needs.

Why Size Matters

The size of your new water heater is something that requires the input of a professional. We understand that you want to have sufficient hot water for use in your home, but that does not necessarily translate to buying the biggest water heater out there. In fact, an oversized water heater may leave you paying more money than you should have to, as water in the tank sits around and inevitably loses some heat to standby energy loss. Plus, you’ll be paying more upfront for a heating capacity that you just don’t need. Of course, an undersized water heater is no good either, as you’ll likely be running out of hot water frequently. The best thing to do is to allow our team to properly size your water heater for your home and needs.

Consider Your Budget

You should never buy an appliance, water heater included, solely because it is the cheapest one available. You’ll likely wind up regretting it before long, as you are scheduling frequent repairs and experiencing issues with inefficiency. You shouldn’t overextend your budget either, though, so let us help you to strike the balance between budget and efficiency/performance levels.

Choose Your Model Wisely

Both gas and electricity have their pros and cons, as do both tank and tankless models. Familiarizing yourself with this information before your water heater installation will cut down the risk of buyer’s remorse. If you have any questions, give us a call.
