Electric Water Heater Installation
We do more than just hook things up. As your Charlotte plumber, our team can advise you on choosing the best electric water heater for your Charlotte home. Your comfort is our top concern; we’ll make honest recommendations based on your budget and preferences.
The key considerations for an electric water heater installation:
- Gallon capacity and first-hour rating (for a storage tank electric water heater)
- Gallons per minute (for an electric tankless water heater)
- Energy efficiency (measured in Energy Factor, higher is better)
- Insulation and standby heat loss
- Estimated annual operating costs
Electric Water Heater Replacement in Charlotte
Tank water heaters last about 10 years, while tankless systems last about 20 years. Your mileage may vary, depending on the hardness of your water and other factors. If your electric water heater is approaching its expiration date, our Charlotte plumbers can provide a serious upgrade with a replacement.
Telltale signs that you need a new electric water heater include insufficient hot water, poor water quality (often rust-colored or with a rotten egg smell), or suspiciously increasing electric bills.
Electric water heater replacement often comes close to paying for itself, especially if you have an older model that’s below today’s energy standards.
