Water Heater Installation
Water heaters are something you don’t give much thought to until yours goes out. Only then do you realize how much you rely on it. At Day and Night Air, we understand that. Our water heater installers stay up on all the latest advances in water heaters so that we can offer you the best on the market. When your water heater needs replacing, we are here for you.
Types of Water Heaters
There are two very different types of waters to choose from: standard and tankless. The obvious difference is that the conventional heater has a large reservoir, and the tankless does not. However, there are a few other factors that distinguish them from one another. According to Energy.gov, some considerations that can help you decide on which water heater installation is right for you are:
- Type of energy used for heating
- Household water needs
- Energy efficiency
- Cost to purchase and operate
At Day and Night Air, our team of experienced technicians can walk you through your options and suggest the best fit for your home and family. We carry a number of the top brands and are proud to recommend RUUD water heaters as the industry-leading brand. They consistently not only meet but also exceed even the most rigorous quality and reliability standards.
Standard Water Heater Installation
In Phoenix, the most popular choice of water heater is the standard water heater. Standard heaters have an insulated water reservoir that holds and heats the water that is then delivered via a pipe to the rest of the home. An average size tank holds 30-50 gallons of water. They are typically less expensive to install, and maintenance and repairs are less expensive, as well.
There are some drawbacks of standard water heaters. They take up more room than a tankless water heater to accommodate the tank and plumbing and must be installed inside the house. Since the water in the tank must be heated over and over to keep the water at the set temperature, they can lead to higher utility costs over time. If there are more than three people that need to shower within a short period, they may not all get hot water as the tank will need to refill and heat up again.
Tankless Water Heater Installation
Tankless water heaters have grown in popularity over the past years due to the interest in more energy-efficient homes. A tankless water heater has an extremely high-temperature heating element that brings the water up to temperature as it passes through the heat exchanger. It is then delivered on-demand where it is needed without storing it. They are more energy-efficient, as there is no need to heat and reheat a large volume of water that isn’t being used. Tankless water heaters also last longer on average than traditional tanked water heaters.
There are also some disadvantages of tankless water heaters as compared to standard water heaters. They are more expensive to install and can cost more for maintenance and repair. The cost can be even higher when making the change from a standard to a tankless water heater. When demand is high, like someone showering while the dishwasher or laundry is running, the unit can sometimes fail to provide hot water to both.
