We often like to take water heaters for granted. We just turn the shower on and the hot water comes out like magic. And yet it is one of the most important conveniences in our home, and we only begin to realize that when we no longer have hot water. You want a licensed plumber to handle your water heater installation so you don’t have to worry about one day turning the shower on and not having any hot water for as long as possible.
Whether you need a solar water heater, or a conventional one, or a hybrid one, Narwhal Plumbing are well versed in dealing with all of them and we can install any of them in your house. All you have to do is give us a call.
There are different types of water heaters, and knowing the different types will help you make a better decision about which one is best for your house.

Replace a regular water heater with tankless?

Traditional Water Heaters

This type of water heater holds the water in a tank, which can be any one of a range of sizes. The water can either be heated using gas or electricity. Traditional water heaters are meant to last for at least 10 years before you need to replace them. With improvements in technology, however, they are becoming more efficient and environment friendly, which means the newer models should last even longer. The new models will also be more energy efficient, saving you money in the process.

What is the difference between a tankless water heater and regular water heater?

Tankless Water Heaters

These water heaters are also known as instantaneous water heaters. They only heat the water when you need it, which makes them more energy efficient than traditional water heaters. The water heater only heats the water when you turn the hot water faucet on. They also require less space due their lack of a tank. They do, however, require more technical expertise to install and should only be installed by a licensed professional. You should never attempt to install such a water heater on your own. Call Narwhal Plumbing and they will send over a licensed professional to do it for you. On the plus side, these water heaters can last up to 20 years and offer significant savings for your energy bill.
