Water Heater Service

Maintenance Service:
There is always dirt and sediment in the water tanks that are accumulated over time from un-filtered or not well filtered city water in homes that do not have a water filtering system. The amount of thick dirt coming out of water tanks when flushed, surprises homeowners. We will flush your water heater and adjust the hot water temperature for FREE, when doing the Annual Maintenance Service on your Heating system (Furnace or Boiler). If the water tank has a defective drain valve and you would like to replace it for thorough and regular flushing, there is a charge for the valve replacement.

Water Heaters:

Types of Water Heaters we Install and Service:

1. Conventional gas water heater: It works with gas, and vents to the chimney. These types of tanks are the most common and reliable water heaters. They only need gas to work, and they come in a wide range of dimensions and capacities.
2. Direct vent (gas) water heaters are used in locations where there is no chimney. It vents through the wall, and is less common than the first previous water tank, therefore a bit more expensive and may need to be pre-ordered.
3. Power vent tanks: It works with gas and electricity. It vents through the wall, making it good in situations where the chimney is eliminated. It is more efficient than regular gas water heaters and as reliable and convenient.
4. Tankless or On-Demand water heaters: This type of water heater is good for situations with limited space. It works with gas and electricity and vents through the wall. It requires a bigger gas pipe and a sufficient water volume and pressure. The condensing tank-less water heater is the most efficient and fastest water heater available. However, it is not the most dependable, and costs a bit more.
5. In-Direct gas-fired water heaters: This type of water heater does not have it’s own burner or heat source, but uses a boiler as a heat source. It has a fast recovery rate, if the boiler has a priority switch, but the drawback is that if the boiler is down, you will not have hot water.
6. Electric hot water tank: It works with electricity and does not require a chimney. It is simple and reliable, but does not have the fast recovery capacity of a gas-fired water heater.
