Do you know what kind of water heater you have? Traditional water heaters are generally powered by electricity or gas. Depending on where your home is, you may have natural gas or propane available to you. No matter what type of water heater you have, you want to make sure you work with a professional water heater plumber that can work on both gas and electric water heaters. At My Plumber Inc., we make it our business to know everything there is to know about water heaters. We are natural gas and propane licensed, and we can work on any make or model of water heater.
Contact us today to speak to our skilled traditional water heater repair experts in Tampa.
One of the most common questions customers ask us is, "which is better, electric or gas." The answer isn't quite that straightforward. What it comes down to is your home's setup, your personal needs, and your budget. While most homes will accommodate an electric water heater, you may have limitations regarding the type of gas water heater you can have. It is often easiest to go with whatever kind of water heater you already have as your home is already set up. However, we recommend speaking with a professional water heater plumber, like ours, before making a decision.
When selecting a water heater, you should consider:
You will also want to consider the start-up costs and the operating costs for different water heaters. If your budget and home setup allow it, a gas water heater may be initially more expensive, but the cost to run it may be less than an electric one. Additionally, if you need a large capacity water heater, it may also be worth purchasing a gas water heater as you will save money over time.
At My Plumber Inc., we always work to repair your water heater before recommending a replacement. Replacements can be expensive, and if your water heater is still well within its expected lifespan, we want you to get the most out of it. Our Tampa electric and gas water heater technicians will inspect your water heater, identify the issue, and provide you with all of your repair options. When you call us, we will never press you to buy things you do not need, including new water heaters.
It is worth repairing your water heater if:
You may decide to replace your water heater before it has gone through its full lifespan if you want to switch from an electric water heater to a gas, or vice-versa. You may also want to upgrade your home to more energy-efficient systems, such as a tankless water heater, or you may just find your current water heater inadequate for your needs. No matter what, My Plumber Inc. has the solutions for you.
