Water Heater Inspections
If you own a property in HB then you’ll want to keep it in good shape, and your appliances.
The typical water heater is usually a cylindrical tank with a heat source in or below the tank and has a 38 to 50 gallon steel tank.
In addition the heat source can be either gas, oil, electricity, solar or even geothermal.
On average a water heater will last from 8 to 12 years for gas and oil.
This goes up to 10-15 years for electrical, solar and geothermal, and over 20 years on tankless water heaters.
Types Of Water Heaters
The conventional storage gas water heater is what most HB property owners have in their residence.
Of course you’ll see the electric-powered storage water heater or tankless water heaters also.
On average a gas water heater has a reservoir tank capacity between 20 to 90 gallons of water.
The reality is that a tankless water heater costs substantially more than either gas or electric, but it’s worth it.
But the advantage is obvious as some brands promise almost a 40% energy savings.
Ask your Streamline Plumber what might be best for your house or condo.
If you live with kids or many people, it can become a problem if you all use hot water at the same time.
This might overwhlem a tankless water heater making it less than ideal for a hot shower.
Solar water heater are powered from the sun which is great for those Green loving folks.
