tankless-water-heater-portlandHot water is essential to a fully-functional home. You use it to bathe, wash dishes, and do laundry. However, there are many water heater options available to homeowners today, so it can be difficult to decide which model will meet your family’s needs.

That’s where Meticulous Plumbing comes in. We want you to have as much information about your future purchase as possible, so you can make a decision you’ll be happy with down the line. Our licensed plumbers are ready and able to do just that.

Water Heater Replacement

Water heaters only last about seven to 15 years, depending on the quality and warranty. At some point during the time you own your home, you will probably need a hot water heater replacement. As soon as your old one starts to leak, that is the time to act quickly.

Regardless of whether your existing water heater is gas, electric or tankless, we have you covered. Our professional plumbers will assess the situation meticulously. Sometimes all that is required is a water heater element replacement, and you are back in business with just a small repair.

Over time, water heaters build up sediment and become less efficient and have to work harder to heat your water. When you hire Meticulous Plumbing to replace your old one, the water heater replacement costs are made up in energy savings and re-energized efficiency and constant warm water for showers, laundry, and dishwashing.

You can count on Meticulous Plumbing for all types of water heater repairs and replacements.

We can advise you on and install all of the following:

  • Tankless: Tankless water heaters operate without a storage tank. These space-saving models heat water on-demand, rather than storing large amounts of pre-heated water, and provide a constant supply of hot water, ensuring that only what you need gets heated. As a bonus, many of these energy-efficient models are compact and fit perfectly in your hall closet, saving you space and money.
  • Hybrid: Hybrid water heaters combine the technology of both tank and tankless water heaters. These models both heat on demand and contain a small reservoir to hold some hot water, so you never run out. Hybrid models can be powered by gas (natural or propane) or electrically run by both a heat pump and conventional electric methods.
  • Standard tank: Traditional water heaters employ a large tank and system of pipes to heat and store water in your home. These tanks look like large metal cylinders and fill with between 30 and 80 gallons of water, heated by a mechanism on the bottom or inside. As the heat rises, your water warms and becomes ready for use.
