Two Types of Water Heaters

There’s no question that we need hot water, but there are conversations being had about how to make traditional water heaters more energy efficient and cost effective. This has led to a rise in the use of tankless water heaters, both in residential and commercial settings. While the two essentially function the same way, there are important nuances to be aware of. With that being said, here are the main differences between a tankless water heater and a traditional one.

– Traditional water heaters

Traditional water heaters generally use gas to heat your property’s water 24/7. The amount of water, measured in gallons, that your traditional water heater continuously heats will vary depending on the size and brand of your water heater. Once that hot water runs out, your traditional water heater will need a recovery period to reheat more water. This is why your shower starts to get warmer after you’ve been using it for a while. Since traditional water heaters never turn off, they’re wasting both energy and money that a tankless water heater would not.

– Tankless water heaters

A tankless water heater does not continuously heat up water. Instead, it uses high temperatures generated from coils to quickly heat water as it’s passing through, but only when you need it. As you can tell from the name, tankless water heaters do not need a tank to store water, which saves space and simplifies the water heater itself, leaving it less likely to need a repair. Tankless water heaters also save money by improving the energy efficiency of your home or commercial property, and they’re convenient.

Regardless of the pros and cons of each type of water heater, at some point, the one you own will need to be repaired. To reduce the chances of an unexpected water heater repair cost, it’s important to schedule regular maintenance every 3 to 6 months with qualified water heater repair technicians and experienced plumbers.

We Love Making People Happy

These guys did a great job and were straightforward all the way. Our water heater broke and flooded the garage. They quickly responded and had it fixed and replaced within a couple of hours. They were honest and on time. I highly recommend them and appreciated their honesty.

I was very impressed from the beginning.  My old water heater went out and happened to call Simpson Plumbing.  They explained everything to me.  They gave me the pros and cons to going to a tank-less water heater.  I decided to go with that and I’m happy I did.  Payed a little more up front but the benefits are far more significant.  Simpson’s team showed up on time and did an excellent job!  They were professional and installed the new water heater in a timely matter.  They also moved their schedules or appointments around to accommodate the need to have hot water in our house.  I couldn’t be more pleased with this company and their personal that came to my house!  I highly recommend them to anyone needing a great plumber!

Commercial Water Heater Installations in Tracy, CA

A broken water heater can end up costing your business both time and money. If there’s no hot water, how will your restaurant’s dishes get cleaned effectively? If you operate a nursing home and the water heater gives out, how long will it take for your residents to be able to shower again? These are just a few examples of the importance of a functioning commercial water heater.

Affordable Water Heater Maintenance Services

We have seen hundreds of different problems with water heaters, but most of them come down to one thing: a lack of maintenance. Water heaters need to be checked at least every few years. This allows us to identify small problems before they build to something more expensive (and potentially dangerous). For example, a stuck thermostat can cause your heating element or gas control valve to remain in an open position. A stuck thermostat in combination with a faulty temperature and pressure release valve can cause the water heater to explode!

Poorly maintained water heaters also show several issues with the sacrificial anode system. Usually we get called in when a homeowner starts to see rusty water. At this point it is usually too late to save the water heater and a new one needs to be installed.
