Tank Water Heaters

You depend on your water heater for a lot. After all, you expect access to hot water when you need it for as long as you want it, and your water heater is what makes that possible. So if you have started to have problems with your tank water heater or if you think it may be time to look into getting a new one, you need to take the selection process seriously.

Of course, you don’t buy water heaters on a regular basis, so it’s difficult to know where to begin. And that is why seeking out professional help can be such an important step in this process.

Manhattan KS Plumbing Tip

Did you know that routine maintenance can help your water heater work better and last longer? Exactly what maintenance you need depends on the make and model of your water heater, but some common tasks include inspecting the anode rod, checking the pressure and temperature valve, and flushing a quart of water from the tank. If you have any questions about water heater installation or maintenance, give us a call today!

Water Heater Tank Size

One important element to consider when examining your tank water heater options is how large of a tank you need. Tank water heaters maintain a reserve supply of hot water that you can then tap into when you need hot water for something anywhere in your home. Because of this dynamic, the size of the tank your water heater has will directly affect how much hot water you can use at a time.

A tank that is too small will be empty before you have satisfied your hot water needs. To pick the right sized tank, you must know the maximum amount of hot water your family will use at any given time. But that does not mean that you should just pick the biggest tank either. The larger the tank, the more expensive the water heater—you don’t want to spend more than you need to.

And the initial cost of the unit is not the only thing you need to worry about. Keep in mind that the water heater will be using fuel to keep the water in the tank at the right temperature at all times. If you have a larger tank, your water heater will need more energy to keep the water hot. So the expense of having a larger tank does not stop at installation.

Your best bet is to work with a professional to determine exactly how much hot water your household uses on a regular basis and at peak times. Then you can make an informed decision about which type of tank water heater is right for you.

Water Heater Energy Efficiency

You should also pay attention to the respective energy efficiency ratings of the tank water heaters you are considering. Most modern models are quite energy efficient, but some are definitely better than others and it’s worth paying attention to because it can help you save more money in the end.
