Water Heater Installation from Licensed Mechanical Contractor & Master Plumbers in Grand Rapids, MI
There are many things to consider when installing a hot water heater, such as usage, size of your family, and your utility bills.
Lake Michigan Mechanical takes these decisions out of your hands by working with you to recommend the best water heater for your specific needs.
Water heaters last between seven and fifteen years. You may begin noticing that you seem to have less hot water available, it doesn’t heat up as quickly, it doesn’t get as hot, or your water heater is leaking. These are all signs that it may be time to install a new hot water heater.
Types of Water Heaters
Hot water heaters can utilize different fuel sources such as natural gas, propane, or even electric, depending on your location and needs.
Conventional Storage Tank Water Heaters
Conventional Storage Tank Water Heaters are the most common type. They consist of an insulated tank that stores the heated water until needed. These types of water heaters can utilize any fuel source. Storage Tank water heaters come in different capacities, depending on your needs. If you have a large family, or if you are taking hot showers simultaneously, you might want to consider a larger tank so you never run out of hot water.
Tankless On-Demand Water Heaters
Tankless On-Demand Water Heaters are able to heat the water quickly only when it is needed. These models are more energy efficient, but they are also more expensive units to begin with. Depending on the model, they can provide continuous hot water as needed for large families all taking hot showers at the same time!
Water Heater Repairs
A lack of hot water or leaky water heater doesn’t always mean that you have to replace the entire unit. Check with the professionals at Lake Michigan Mechanical first to see if the problem with your water heater is minor and easily fixed. Sometimes the heating elements fail long before the tank itself, and minor leaks can also be repaired easily.
