Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for a hot water heater to heat up after installation?

There’s no wait time with tankless water heaters, as they can provide hot water instantly. Conventional gas water heaters can take a short period of around 30-45 minutes to warm up after installation. Electric water heaters can take a bit longer with a timeframe of 60-80 minutes to provide hot water.

How much does water heater installation cost?

Water heater installation costs can vary due to the type of energy source, water heater model, labor and any other potential repairs or adjustments needed. Our team of water heater installation experts will work with you before your investment to ensure it fits your budget and timeframe.

What are the pros and cons of each water heater type?

Conventional water heaters such as gas and electric tend to cost less. Installation and repair parts are cost-effective and easy to come by. However, they are larger and more cumbersome, requiring more energy to keep water hot. These systems can also run out of hot water and tend to have shorter lifespans of approximately 10 years. On the other hand, tankless water heaters require less energy and provide endless hot water on demand. These systems also take up less space and have a longer lifespan of about 20 years. The downside to tankless water heaters is the larger upfront cost more and may require retrofitting to be installed.

What size water heater should I buy?

For an average family of four, a 40-gallon water heater should provide enough hot water. We recommend adding 10 gallons for each additional person. Our water heater installation technicians will help you find your best option by understanding your current hot water use and needs, as well as any potential future needs.
