From laundry to showers to dishes, we all use hot water every day. And we can take it for granted—until it isn’t there. Short of your water heater breaking down, how do you know it might be time to replace it? After the 10-year mark, if your water heater is still working, there are some signs to watch out for:
These are symptoms of a water heater that may be on its last legs. And with so many new options on the market, you don’t want to wait until you’re under pressure to make an emergency decision. Whether you’re considering a replacement, or you need service and maintenance, Isaac is happy to work with you.
We offer a range of water heating systems and professional installation—and we only install models Isaac carries, so we understand clearly how each unit operates. Plus, as of 2015, new Department of Energy standards are in effect for hot water heaters. These regulations are meant to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and save energy, making your home safer and more energy efficient.
Smart choices. Full service.
New water heater options, such as heat pump water heaters or tankless water heaters, are designed to meet the needs of different kinds of households and lifestyles. Some work best for larger families. Other are ideal for homes where residents are away all day. With so many options out there, we offer you a free hot-water heating consultation service. Our experts will come to your home to take a look at your current system and ask a few questions. From there, we’ll recommend a replacement unit and talk about the best options. Pricing, energy savings, and payback information, as well as how long it takes to recoup the cost of the new unit through energy savings will be reviewed. We also offer our exclusive GoldCare membership on water heaters, starting at $7 per month, which can keep your unit operating smoothly and extend its life.
Traditional water heater, improved design.
The latest tank-style models are now better insulated, more energy efficient, and operate up to a 96% thermal efficiency. That means they cost less to operate, so payback on your purchase will take about five years. Today’s traditional water heaters are safer, too, thanks to better venting of carbon dioxide. Other considerations:
Newer models feature a built-in auto shut-off in case flammable substances spill near the unit.
Newer models are wider and taller, so we can help you choose a location where it fits best.
