Water Heater Replacement
At Bill Metzger Plumbing, our plumbers know all about conventional gas or electric water heaters as well as newer tankless (on- demand) water heaters. Don’t stress over water heater repairs, Bill Metzger Plumbing will take plumbing problems off your back. You may purchase a water heater through us or pick up one from the supplier of your choice and hire us to replace it. Life Expectancy A conventional water heater should last about 11 years, tankless heaters have a life expectancy of 15-20 years. Hard water will shorten the life, regular maintenance will prolong it.
Tankless heaters are considered more energy efficient than conventional heaters because they don’t have to continually heat a tank of water. Tankless heaters heat water instantly whenever a hot water tap is opened. But not all conventional heaters are created equally. The most heavily insulated models like the Marathon® brand rival tankless heaters for efficiency and require no special modifications to your power supply, gas lines or ventilation.
