Water Heaters

You might not think about just how much you rely on your water heater until it begins to malfunction, failing to deliver the hot water you need to take a shower, wash the dishes, or finish the laundry. If you are in need of a new water heater or your existing unit needs maintenance or repairs, Choate’s Plumbing can provide the immediate in-home service you need to restore the flow of hot water through your pipes. We provide leading brands for both tank and tankless water heaters, so you can rest assured that you are making a worthwhile investment that will boost your home’s energy efficiency and indulge you with the ongoing comfort of hot water.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Water Heater?

When your water heater stops working, you might wonder if you are better off repairing the existing unit or replacing it entirely. If your current water heater is more than 10 years old, it might be best to replace it, because you will have much higher energy efficiency with a new unit along with a warranty to cover future repairs. When the issue is something minor like a worn-out anode rod, repairing the water heater will probably be the right choice. To extend the life of your water heater after repairs, you might call on us for maintenance services with our 95-point plumbing inspection to keep the unit and other plumbing components in working order for years to come.

What Type of Water Heater Is Right for Your Home?

With both gas and electric water heaters, there are two basic options to choose from: Conventional tank water heaters and tankless water heaters. Below you will find more information about each to learn which may be right for your home.

  • Tankless Water Heaters – Tankless water heaters do have a higher initial cost, but they generally last about twice as long as tank heaters, and they have the benefit of offering hot water on demand. If you have a large family or you are seeking a higher-efficiency water heater, a tankless unit may be the ideal choice. At Choate’s, we provide several leading brands, including Rinnai, Noritz, and Bradford White.
  • Conventional Water Heaters – With tank water heaters, you will want to select a unit that has a large enough capacity to deliver an adequate amount of hot water at any given time. Our licensed plumbers can help you choose the right unit among the highest-performing brands on the market to make the most of your investment.
