Water Heater Replacement

Sometimes it’s actually more cost-effective to just replace your hot water heater. When replacement is the right choice for you, Good Leif plumbing is here to provide you with expert guidance and installation. With more than 27 years of experience, you can be confident that all electrical, gas and plumbing connections are being handled and made in the safest manner possible.

As part of your free consultation, Good Leif Plumbing will provide you with a range of options while taking your budget and long-term goals and expectations into consideration. The two most common types of hot water heaters are:

  • Conventional hot water heaters: Conventional hot water heaters rely on keeping a tank of water, usually between 20 to 100 gallons, warm at all times. The heat source can be either electric or gas. Because conventional hot water heaters are “always on,” they are typically the least energy-efficient option. They will also run out of hot water if not appropriately sized for the demands of your home or business. That said, they are usually the most cost-efficient models to purchase and install.
  • Tankless hot water heaters: Tankless water heaters are efficient, capable of producing hot water on demand, and do not rely on a water storage tank. Utilizing an electrical element or high-powered gas burners, these units provide hot water only as needed. Tankless water heaters have gained popularity due to the reduced footprint and size of the unit, their energy-efficient nature, and their ability to continuously produce hot water when sized appropriately for your home or business. Due to higher unit costs and more complicated installation, the upfront costs for tankless water heaters are often higher than conventional units.

If you aren’t sure which type of water heater is right for you, our plumbing contractors in San Antonio, TX will help you make the best choice for your home or business. Whether you’re interested in a Rheem water heater or any other type of tankless water heater, we’ll be able to go over the benefits and installation process of each system.
