Which Water Heater Should I Choose?

What are the first signs that it is time to replace your water heater? You may have already begun noticing that your shower or tub isn’t warming as quickly as you remember. Or, the water alternates between hot and cold. Our Durham water heater plumbers know that nothing can be more uncomfortable than unpredictable water temperatures.

Other Signs That It May Be Time To Replace Your Water Heater Include:

We would never recommend replacing your water heater unless absolutely necessary. We inspect your unit thoroughly and then determine what options you might have to repair it. However, replacing your unit may turn out to be the most viable solution, so we can assist you in deciding on which unit will be right for you.

Benefits of Installing a Tankless Water Heater

When you’re considering what type of water heater to replace your current unit with, it’s important to at least look into the potential value of a tankless water heater. While the up-front cost is higher than a traditional unit, the long-term benefits can outweigh the initial investment depending on your situation.

Some Of The Top Benefits Of Tankless Water Heaters Include:

  • A longer lifespan than a traditional water heater: Traditional units typically last 10 years, maybe a couple more if you keep up to date with annual service. Tankless units last 20 years on average.
  • Lower energy bills: Traditional water heaters need to keep anywhere from 50 to 100 – and maybe more – gallons of water hot and ready to go 24/7. This can have a noticeable impact on your energy bill. Tankless water heaters only heat water as it’s used, which can dramatically cut back on the amount of energy needed to run it on a day to day basis.
  • Tankless water heaters are more environmentally friendly than tank water heaters: Not only will the drop in energy usage help cut down your utility bill, but it will help lessen your home’s carbon footprint. Over the course of two decades, the difference could be substantial.
  • Takes up considerably less space: Tankless water heaters are approximately 1/5 the size of a traditional unit. Replacing your current water heater with one will free up an entire closet worth of space.

Tankless Water Heaters Replacement & Installation

If you are considering a new tankless water heater or replacing an old, inefficient water heater in Raleigh or Durham, NC, Acme Plumbing has the knowledge and expertise to advise regarding the best option for your home or business. Installing a tankless water heater is a great option if you are looking to upgrade to a more energy efficient model with the added benefit of hot water on-demand. Tankless water heaters take up less space and typically last longer than a traditional water heater. They are an excellent option for anyone seeking a water heater replacement. If your current tankless water heater is displaying any signs of malfunction such as inconsistent temperature or tinted water, give us a call and we will inspect your unit to ensure it is working properly.

Electric Water Heater Replacement & Installation

Electric water heaters have a low upfront cost for installation and are generally quite energy efficient. They are among the more popular choices for water heater installation and replacement. Electric water heater installation does not require any changes to piping or home infrastructure, so with professional assistance, it is a quick and easy installation. If your electric water heater is more than a decade old or if you notice signs of deficiency, it may be time to consider a replacement. Before making this decision, contact Acme Plumbing of Raleigh and Durham, NC for your electric water heater replacement and installation needs.

40/50/60 Gallon Water Heater

A typical water heater has a tank capacity of 40, 50, or 60 gallons. Generally, a 40 gallon unit suits the average family of four while bigger families or institutions should look to 50 or 60 gallon units. The experienced team at Acme Plumbing has installed all of these types of water heaters across Raleigh, Durham, and the surrounding areas.

If you want to go green, there are a lot of considerations; it’s not just about getting the smallest water heater. It can take a lot of energy to heat water so heating a large tank once rather than a small tank multiple times might be the environmentally-friendly choice to make. It’s dependent on your usage factors. An experienced Acme plumber can help you factor in the heating element, the standby and cycling losses, and other elements to choose the best fit tank for your home or residence in Raleigh or Durham, NC.
