We are well-versed in the various brands and can help determine the best unit to meet your particular needs, based on a well-rounded knowledge of functionality and technical advancement.
Traditional Tank Water Heaters
Because conventional water heaters employ a storage tank that maintains a reserve of hot water with either electricity or gas fuel, they are convenient during power outages, allowing you to still access hot water. In most cases, they require a smaller up-front investment for water heater installation. Our Birmingham water heater specialists can offer information on a variety of water heater units, which can run from various types of fuel, including electricity, natural gas, propane, oil, solar energy, and geothermal energy.
Sizing Your Water Heater
Determining the right size of conventional water heater involves assessing the usage and needs within your home or commercial building. Rather than basing the decision on the size of the home, the correct size takes into consideration the number of people living in the house and how the hot water is used. Typical sizes for household water heaters range from 20 to 100 gallons.
Water Heater Problems
With older water heaters especially, you may experience a number of issues, including a lack of hot water or reduced water pressure. Also, aged water heaters are not as efficient as many of the newer, more advanced models, which could potentially save you a great deal on your Birmingham energy bills. If you believe you may have an issue with your water heater that needs repair, or that your water heater is ready to be replaced, the plumbing technicians at Southern Home Services in Birmingham are more than happy to offer expert advice and service.
