Let’s face it, it’s easy to completely forget about your water heater. It sits in a closet or is hidden away in the garage and reliably generates hot water for your every need, yet the only time it gets any attention is when something goes wrong.
Water heaters work extremely hard for a very long time and proper maintenance and repairs can extend their work life well beyond the norm.
Eventually, even with proper maintenance, the time will come when it’s financially prudent to retire your old water heater and replace it with a new energy saving water heating system.

Advances in plumbing technology has given today’s consumers water heating options that they never had before. Traditional tank water heaters are still on the menu and technology has given us Tank-less and Hybrid water heating options as well.
The vast majority of residential, multi-residential, industrial and commercial properties throughout the southland heat their water using traditional tank-style water heaters. Traditional tank systems include a large tank that acts as a reservoir for hot water.
Water is heated within the tank and then distributed throughout the house whenever you turn on a faucet. Traditional Tank Water Heaters are still very popular with consumers, but they waste a significant amount of energy which has consumers switching in record to more eco-friendly water heating systems.
The main disadvantage with traditional tank water heating systems is that water in the tank must be kept heated whether you need hot water or not and this wastes a tremendous amount of energy and money.
On the other hand, Tankless Water Heaters provide hot water only as it’s needed and on demand. Traditional storage water heaters produce standby energy losses that cost you money.
We don’t heat our homes while on vacation, we heat our homes when there is a demand for heat. In the same way, a Tankless Water Heater is used only when there is a demand for hot water.
Tankless Water Heaters heat water directly without the use of a storage tank which avoids the standby heat and energy losses associated with tank water heaters.
hybrid water heaterHybrid water heaters are a combination of tank and tankless technology in one unit. A hybrid system offers the best of both worlds; high efficiency and continuous hot water capabilities along with the ability to use multiple hot water-utilizing appliances simultaneously.
Traditional tank water heaters can supply hot water to multiple locations in your home. However, a high demand for hot water can deplete the tank.
On the other hand, a tankless water heater can supply an endless volume of hot water, but it is not always able to meet the demands of multiple applications in a busy household.
A hybrid water heater delivers the best of both worlds, hot water to multiple applications for as long as you need.
The most common fuel used for tank, tankless and hybrid water heaters is natural gas, but manufacturers also make water heaters that run on a variety of other fuel sources such as electricity and oil.
