Hot water heaters come in a variety of sizes and styles, and are either a natural gas water heater or an electric water heater. When deciding what type of water heater to use in your home or business, there are two types to choose from: a traditional water heater or a tankless water heater. Contact Landon Plumbing to help you select the best size and type of water heater for your home or business.
The life span of a water heater is approximately 10-15 years on city water and 7-10 on well water. We offer zinc composite anode rods to extend the life of the heater about 5 years.
If your existing water heater is older than that, keep an eye out for leaks. In fact, you may want to schedule water heater replacement before the tank fails, especially if the leaking water could damage drywall or carpeting.
Landon Plumbing stays up to date with all of the local and state plumbing codes to better serve you. Did you know that all Maryland counties require a thermal expansion tank to better protect your health? Did you also know that most manufacturers provided a 6- year warranty for the water heater? Some manufacturers also give you the option to purchase a 10-year warranty for extra coverage.
We offer Tankless water heaters so you never run out of hot water again. The unit only runs when you use hot water. The temperature can be adjusted by the touch of a button to protect children. Going tankless is a great way to go green by saving energy. They can also save you space since tankless water heaters tend to be smaller than traditional water heaters.
Tankless water heaters heat water instantly without the need for a water storage tank.
When there is a demand for hot water (e.g., a hot water tap is opened for a sink, shower, tub, or washing machine) the tankless water heater’s water flow turbine senses the flow and starts the heating process. Cold water is then heated to the desired temperature as it circulates through copper piping (the heat exchanger) providing you with hot water. When the hot water tap is turned off, the tankless water heater shuts down and is placed in a standby mode pending the next call for hot water.
A tankless water heater cannot supply hot water simultaneously to multiple taps, such as a shower and a dishwasher. A way around this is to install more than one tankless water heater. Keep in mind that tankless water heaters cost more than traditional water heaters, but they can last up to 20 years.
