Water Heater Research For The Snellville Homeowner

Sometimes it’s very obvious if your water heater has heated her last drop. For instance, if you are up to your ankles in rusty cold water, then, absolutely yes her time has come.

But perhaps it’s not so in your face (or feet). Maybe your spider sense is giving you signals that make you suspect she is giving up. Such as…

  • Water is coming out of showerheads and kitchen sink at cooler temperature (your bacon grease is not dissolving anymore)
  • Your hot showers are getting shorter, not because you are in a hurry, but because the hot water is running out faster
  • There is water accumulating on the floor around the water heater
  • Water is coming out of pipes with a metallic smell or is rusty in color
  • She is getting old. In dog years she’d be 70

Now is the time to start thinking about your options. Here is water heater research for you from Hubb Plumbing.

There are 2 big players on the hot water heater market these days and a newer 3rd choice.

1)Standard Tank Water Heater:
Tank Water Heaters provide a large volume of dependable, low-cost hot water. Most homes require between 40 and 60 gallon tanks. Click here to see chart that explains size per family.

2)Tankless, Hot Water on Demand, Water Heater
Tankless gas water heaters are more energy-efficient than conventional tank heaters, because they eliminate the need to maintain a large supply of pre-heated water. Tankless units provide hot water on demand at a precise temperature needed. These have been popular in Europe for years and are making a dent in the ecofriendly market in the US.

3)Electrical Hybrid Water Heater
The Rheem Hybrid Electric Water Heater features heat pump technology that makes it over TWICE as efficient as standard electric water heaters. That means if your annual energy cost for hot water is around $520, you could save as much as $286 per year!
