Gas, Electric, Tankless, Or High-Efficiency? Which Is Right For Me?

There are many different types of water heaters to choose from, each with its own set of perks and common problems. Here’s a little about each:

Gas Water Heaters

Gas water heaters are reliable, affordable to operate, and can keep your water hot during a power outage. These water heaters are valued for their energy-efficiency, but since they are fueled by gas, they can also be incredibly dangerous if problems are ignored.

Some common gas water heater repairs are related to gas valves, dip tubes, thermocouples, thermostats, pilot lights, vent pipe obstructions, and pressure relief valves. Here at Stadler Plumbing & Heating, we are experienced with both standard vent and direct vent gas water heaters, so whatever is causing your gas water heater problems, you can count on our team to take care of it.

Electric Water Heaters

Electric water heaters are valued for their excellent safety ratings and their ability to heat water swiftly. These water heaters are affordable to operate and typically have long service lives, although without a generator, these heaters will not provide hot water during a power outage. Many electric water heater troubles can be traced back to thermostats, wiring, dip tubes, bad heating elements, and breakers. No matter the cause, we’re here to help resolve your electric water heater issues!

Tankless Water Heaters

When replacing old water heaters, many homeowners opt for tankless water heaters, which virtually eliminate energy waste. These water heaters only heat up the water you need, as you need it, providing an endless amount of hot water without the waste. Because tankless water heaters don’t actually store water, they are great options for homeowners with a shortage of space. They also essentially eliminate the risk of water damage, as there is no tank to leak or burst.  With tankless water heaters, most common problems are related to improper venting, demand overload, or sensor/electronic failures. If your tankless water heater is giving you trouble, those of us here at Stadler Plumbing & Heating can make the needed adjustments and quickly get your water heater working as it should.

High-Efficiency Water Heaters

The obvious advantage of a high-efficiency water heater is that you will enjoy energy-efficiency levels of around 95%. These water heaters even make use of exhaust gases, ensuring that you get the most out of every little bit of fuel. Additionally, with a high-efficiency water heater, you’ll enjoy reduced carbon monoxide risks. The downside is, because these units are so technologically advanced, they typically have more expensive components — so replacement parts can be costly. But if your high-efficiency water heater is in need of maintenance or service, you can count on our tech-savvy technicians to get the job done right and at a fair price.

All Water Heaters Require Maintenance from Time To Time

Regardless of the type of water heater you have, there are problems that are common to all water heaters.

Mineral build-up and corrosion from hard water can negatively impact the operation, efficiency, and safety of your water heater, as can pressure relief valve failure and other problems common to all water heaters. But we’re here to help! We’ll make sure your water heater is properly installed, and will expertly service and maintain your water heater for a longer, more efficient service life. We’ll check for sediment buildup, inspect your burner for proper flame, and resolve any issues you may be experiencing.
