Water Heater Installation
Even though hot water is a part of our everyday life, from doing laundry to taking a nice, relaxing shower, it’s easy to forget about your water heater. But the moment your water heater starts to malfunction, it becomes impossible to ignore.

And with technicians on call, we can help you with any plumbing emergencies you might experience, including with your water heater.
Because the average water heater is rated to last between 10-15 years, there’s a good chance that you’re eventually going to need to replace your equipment. While you can stretch that timeline with proper maintenance and repairs, at some point, it makes more sense to put those repair dollars into a new unit.
While there’s no hard and fast rule that you need to replace your water heater after a particular time, you can look for the following signs to know you might need an upgrade:
While you may be able to limp along with these symptoms, the sooner you start the water heater installation process, the sooner you’ll get worry-free hot water back in your home.
As part of our water heater installation service at Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling, we’ll help you select a model that’s right for your needs. There are several options to choose from, and what you choose will depend on several factors.
Traditional tank water heaters have a large reservoir that typically uses either electricity or natural gas to heat the water inside. These tanks come in various sizes, usually between 20 to 80 gallons. While there are several different charts to show what size you need, a good rule of thumb is that a family of four will want at least a 50-gallon tank. To keep a ready supply of hot water, the heat will turn on throughout the day to keep the water at a steady temperature, leading to some inefficiency.
As the name suggests, tankless water heaters do away with the reservoir. Instead, water is heated as it passes through the tankless water heater, providing homeowners with an endless on-demand supply of hot water. Once too expensive for most homeowners, tankless water heaters have become much more affordable. While they are more expensive than tank heaters, they’re much more efficient, and you’ll save a bundle on your monthly utility bill.
While we’re happy to discuss repairing your older water heater, it’s worth considering the benefits of replacing your older unit, including:
Newer water heater models are typically more robust than their predecessors, meaning they’re likely to last even longer.
With a new water heater, you should need fewer service calls. And with manufacturer warranties, many of your repairs are covered.
Water heaters lose efficiency as they age, so when you replace your older model, you’ll get the same hot water while using less energy. Plus, with advances in technology, your water heater will be more efficient than ever.
Higher efficiency means you’ll spend less on your utility costs while still using the same amount of hot water.
