Residential Water Heater Options
Gas fueled water heaters are by far the most common type of
tank water heater in the U.S. today. Ranging in size from 20 to 80 gallons and fueled by electricity, natural gas, propane, or oil.
Storage water heaters transfer heat from a burner or coil to water in an insulated tank. Because heat is lost through the flue (except in electric models) and through the walls of the storage tank, energy is consumed even when water is not being consumed.
water heaters traditionally have been the tank type. Also called
storage water heaters, these consist of a cylindrical vessel or container that keeps water continuously hot and ready to use. Typical sizes for household use range from 40 to 75 US gallons. These may use natural gas, propane or heated by electricity. These
water heaters have an averaged life span of 8 to 12 years. As the
water tank ages the steel tank will rust and leak which could cause damage to your home or business. Most home owners don’t notice their
water heater until they have a problem. At Reno Plumbing Doctor we can supply and install a new
water heater to fit your needs and have it in the same day of your service.
We can also provide an extended warranty on any water heater we install.
Hot Water Recirculation Systems
Water heaters are generally located far away from fixtures like
faucets. A lot of water and energy is wasted before the
hot water arrives at the spout.
Hot water circulation systems prevent this loss by using small motors to bring
hot water to the source. They can drastically cut down heating costs and have other benefits too, like reducing wear on your
