Water Heaters

Storage or Tank style water heaters: There are 3 different fuel types available; natural gas, electric and L.P. gas. Recently, the federal government has required manufacturers of gas water heaters to comply with new standards. Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant (FVIR) heaters are now standard and prevent serious damage to people and property. Our preferred brand for installation is Bradford White Water Heaters. Watch out for FVIR heaters that have filter/screening on the air inlets, as maintenance is required regularly otherwise the warranty may be void. Life expectancy for a gas tank style water heater is between 10-14 years in our area, but really depends on water quality, and maintenance.

Next are the power vent water heaters. These state-of-the-art water heater products have been installed more recently and are even more energy efficient. They provide a long-lasting supply of hot water during the times when everyone in your home needs it the most. The 90% and 96% efficient Bradford White Models qualify for Federal Tax Rebates totaling 30% of the installed price, up to $1500. With rebates these heaters are now affordable, and outperform all other power vented water heaters.  Please click on the like below for more information on the Bradford White Water Heaters.
