Gas Water Heater Repair College Station
Hot water is a non-negotiable in the modern home, but few of us put much thought into the system itself. A variety of other considerations revolve around the decisions we make about how we get that hot shower we enjoy every morning. You should consider whether you want a traditional hot water tank or a tankless water heater. Efficiency, cost, product maintenance, durability, and ease-of-use all factor into your decision about which kind of heater is right for your home. There are a few really distinct advantages and disadvantages to the two options.
Whichever system you prefer, JBG can make sure that it is installed the right way and guarantee that you won’t have to think about your water heating system for many years to come.
New Water Heater Warranty
New water heaters come with 6-year parts and 1-year labor. When you purchase and have your water heater installed by JBG Plumbing we add an additional 2 years to the labor warranty for a total of 3 years of warranty coverage.
Your house likely has this kind of unit in the garage, a closet, or the attic; they come in electric or gas models. These units store heated water all day every day until you need it. It refills and reheats as the hot water is depleted. The difficulty with standard tank heaters is that you can run out of hot water depending on your use and the capacity of the unit. If you’re the last person to shower in a household full of guests or children, well, you know that can be an unpleasant experience. The lower cost to purchase and install means that replacing the unit every decade or so might be worth it for upfront savings to your bottom line.
Tankless Water Heaters:
Tankless heaters have come a LONG way since they first hit the market years ago. You don’t have to wait forever to get that precious hot water. They don’t off-gas at dangerously high temperatures. You don’t have to do enormous/invasive system re-designs in most cases to make the jump to tankless. These units only heat the water needed per shower or load of laundry. It’s much more energy-efficient, but the units cost more upfront — parts and installation.

Water Heater Replacement:
Water heaters are one of the many things in your home that are not designed to last forever. Electric water heaters are more susceptible to sediment buildup. Sediment starts to insulate the heating element in the tank and causes the water heater to work harder to accomplish the same water temperature. How long does a water heater typically last? A gas water heater lasts 8-12 years and electric water heaters sometimes last a little long but must work harder.
