It is worth switching to a tankless water heater if you are looking for a more efficient option. Tankless water heaters can save you money on your energy bill, and they can also have a longer lifespan than traditional water heaters.

To choose the right size tankless water heater for your home, you will need to consider a few factors, such as: the number of people in your household, the average water usage in your household, and the climate in your area. Use our Navisizer tool to quickly find the right model for your home or business.

Thank you for your interest in purchasing a Bradford White water heater. Unlike other brands that sell through big box stores, Bradford White feels very strongly that our water heaters should be specified, sold, and installed by qualified professionals only. To find a plumbing professional in your area who sells and installs Bradford White, click here. Here are some reasons to feel good about choosing Bradford White.

Many big box home improvement stores sell water heaters over the counter to anyone who wishes to purchase one. They typically carry one or more brands, and have a variety of price ranges. The benefits of buying from a retailer are that you can easily compare prices & view available stock. In addition, many times the equipment made to be sold at retailers may contain cheaper or less durable parts in order to discount the units.

In many cities, there are supply warehouses owned by either national or local wholesalers that supply equipment to local plumbing companies. Some of these supply houses may be open to the general public, but they will typically only sell parts & equipment like water heaters to licensed plumbers.

At the end of the day, you should choose the option that makes the most sense for you & your home. We never recommend that a homeowner attempt to DIY-install a water heater, especially a gas heater, as there could be a possibility of damaging your home or possessions with a faulty installation. If you need water heater repair or installation in Northwest Arkansas, Southwest Missouri, or the Fort Smith River Valley, give the professional plumbers at Paschal Air, Plumbing & Electric a call at 479-751-0195.

A pool heater keeps the water in your pool at a comfortable temperature by circulating it through a heating tank, which warms the water and then sends it back into the pool. This allows you to control the temperature of your pool even during colder months.

This is similar to how a spa or jacuzzi works, but you wouldn't want to heat a pool that much; it would waste a tremendous amount of energy and take longer due to the larger volume of water. Instead, a pool heater keeps a consistent flow of warm water to keep things comfortable, without going overboard with the heat.

There's also the fact that since everyone is buying a pool heater in the fall, you might find it easier to find an installer in the spring (although you're unlikely to get a discount on the unit itself).

The size of the pool heater will be your biggest determining factor, as pools come in vastly different sizes. The larger the pool, the more powerful the pool heater you'll need. A standard-sized pool generally requires a heat pump pool heater with a Btu output and horsepower (hp) of between 3.5 to 6 hp and 75,000 to 125,000 Btu.

The pool heater's coefficient of performance (COP) number will tell you how efficient it is, which greatly impacts your energy bill. A typical COP range is 3.0 to 7.0. The higher the COP, the more units of heat you get out of the heat pump for each unit of electricity.

Generally, the cost to install a pool heater is between $1,700 and $4,000. Factors that influence the cost include location and climate, the size of the pool, and what existing hookups you have. Contact a pool heater installer near you for a quote.

Tankless water heaters are relatively new home appliances that ensure you have piping hot water at the ready while taking up as little space as possible and using energy efficiently. Tankless water heaters can be up to 34% more efficient than a conventional storage tank-type water heater, which can save the average family $100 per year. But before you head to the appliance store to purchase one for your home, there are a few key factors to consider.

The total cost of a tankless water heater will depend on its size and fuel type. Gas-powered tankless water heaters cost between $1,000 and $1,500, while electric units cost between $500 and $1,500.

Professional installation is an added cost that can vary depending on who you hire, how big the tank is and how complex your system is (i.e. if venting is needed). The average cost to install a tankless water heater ranges from $2,500 to $4,500.

Propane or natural gas-powered tankless water heaters often heat water more quickly than electric tankless water heaters can. Gas and propane are also less expensive than electric power, but they cost more to install than electric heaters and require more maintenance.

By extracting heat from the exhaust before releasing it into the venting system, condensing tankless water heaters eliminate the need for expensive flue pipes and venting materials. And they use that extracted heat as an additional way to heat water.

Typically, condensing tankless water heaters are more expensive to purchase than their non-condensing counterparts. But they have lower installation costs and higher energy efficiency, so the cost is lower in the long run.

Non-condensing water heaters use heat exchangers to heat water and then vent the exhaust outdoors. They need stainless steel flue pipes to withstand the heat of the exhaust, which can increase installation costs.

You can determine the right size for your home by figuring out how many fixtures you will want to operate simultaneously and how much hot water each one uses. Added together, this will give you the desired capacity of your hot water heater.

We recommend that you get your tankless hot water heater serviced by a professional at least once a year. Increase that to twice a year if you live in a very cold area or if you consistently have hard water.

Installing a tankless water heater is not a DIY project. Your home may need to be updated to accommodate your new water heater, which often requires new wiring or gas lines. Gas and electricity are very dangerous to deal with, so we highly recommend leaving this project to the pros.

Some municipalities even require professional water heater installation. A professional will know to abide by all current codes involving things like carbon monoxide emissions, thermal resistance, venting and more.

Many people currently rent or lease their water heaters instead of buying them. Homeowners find the idea of worry-free maintenance and repairs, free installation and low monthly fees appealing. However, if you plan to live in your home for many years, purchasing a water heater is clearly a wiser financial decision.

Water Heater Rental Cost Over TimeMost hot water heaters can be expected to last about 10 to 12 years. Over the life of the appliance, renters will pay far more than what the heater would have cost if purchased and installed. For example, if a homeowner paid $25 per month in rental fees, the total rental cost for 10 years would be $3000. The same water heater may have only cost around $800-$1000 fully installed.

Water heater rental fees often increase as time goes by. This can leave renters locked into an agreement to pay more and more every year for their aging unit. Some long-term rental agreements even require an expensive buy-out if you decide to switch suppliers or no longer need the water heater.

New hot water heaters are generally covered under a warranty for a limited period of time. After warranties run out, owners are responsible for all repairs, but this does not necessarily mean that the cost of repair will be unaffordable, especially when compared to paying more than four times the worth of their appliance in rental fees. Buying your hot water heater also gives you a wider variety of choices. Eco-friendly options, favored brands and high-end models may not be available as rentals.

Spend Wisely, Save MoreThe decision to purchase a hot water heater rather than renting it is a clear example of spending money to save money. For financially stable homeowners who plan to use their water heater for several years, buying the appliance offers more benefits in the long run.

The founder of personal finance blog, Bell thought he could save money by installing a tankless water heater. But after consulting more than a dozen plumbers, he found that with an initial cost of $4,500, it would take more than 18 years for the savings from lower energy costs to equal his initial expenses. That was enough to convince him to buy a traditional 50-gallon electric tank.

"I was dead set on getting a tankless because I heard about how much money you can save," Bell says, but he found that any energy savings would be eaten up by installation costs. He ended up paying $1,200 for a traditional water heater, which included moving the unit, a new stand and a new extended drain. Bell determined a tankless electric installation would save only about $15 a month. "It doesn't really save you that much," he says.

Most people don't do quite that much research, especially if it's an emergency, but it's good to know your options ahead of time and have an idea of how much each will cost in the short term and long term. Gas water heaters last about 10 years and electric about 15 years, on average, so if your water heater is nearing that age, you might want to investigate options now. 041b061a72
