Choosing the Best Water Heater for Your Home

There are a few options to choose from when selecting a new water heater for your home, and you can find additional details on each of these systems by reaching out to our team. The first option you’ll want to choose from is whether you want a gas–powered system or an electric one. Gas is more affordable to use, but electric water heaters are often chosen for their safety features.

The next consideration to make is whether you want a traditional storage tank water heater, or if you’d rather go with a tankless system. When looking at your hot water heater options, we’ll help you make an educated decision by going over their capacity, dimensions, and the energy–efficiency you can expect from each water heater. Below is a breakdown of perhaps the biggest consideration you’ll need to make—whether you want a tank water heater or tankless. 

  • Storage Tank Water Heater: This is a reliable and budget friendly water heater for your home. It’s typically easy to install since almost all homes already have a setup for it—whether it’s gas or an electric water heater.
  • Tankless Water Heater: The main reason homeowners throughout Santa Barbara, CA are choosing to go the tankless route is due to the efficiency of such a system. Tankless water heaters heat your water on–demand in order to ensure you only heat the water that you use, and don’t lose heat like you would with a storage tank system.

Water Heater Installation and Replacement 

When it comes to installation or water heater replacements in Santa Barbara,  you need to hire a professional plumber to ensure that your new system matches the size and specific needs of your home. We work with homes and budgets of all kinds, and we can definitely help find the best option for your living space.

If you notice that your water heater isn’t operating as it once did, requires frequent or costly repairs, or if its broken down completely, then you’ll want to consider a professional water heater replacement—as repairs can only go so far, the older a water heater gets.

Water Heater Maintenance and Repairs

Your water heater is among one of those plumbing components that easily gets the most use in your home. Therefore, it’s going to eventually breakdown. However, one way to ensure that it lasts as long as possible is with routine maintenance.

Take a storage tank water heater, for instance. So long as the anode rod—which absorbs rust—is replaced as needed, during water heater maintenance, your system can last far longer. The same goes for managing water heater repairs. If you’re alerted to water heater repair needs, getting them on your schedule right away can help you prevent premature replacement. Contact our team and we’ll be happy to inspect your existing water heater to see what your service needs may be.
