Your water heater works hard to make sure you get the hot water you need, when you need it. You may need water heater repairs in Matthews, NC from time to time, especially if you have hard water. Better water heaters will also last longer and heat more efficiently. W.H. Hobbs can make those repairs and provide water heater installation or replacement in Matthews by friendly, licensed plumbers.
We service and install both storage tank water heaters and tankless water heaters in Matthews powered by your choice of gas or electric.
Tank or Tankless Water Heaters in Matthews?
Storage tank water heaters keep dozens of gallons of water heated to your desired temperature. As long as the tank is large enough for your needs, you can run multiple faucets and appliances simultaneously.
Tankless water heaters have become very popular because they save energy by only heating water when you need it. Tankless water heating never runs out if yours gets enough gallons per minute for your needs.
Our Matthews plumbers will go over the specs and features to help you decide on the best water heater to install for your household.
