Types of Water Heaters We Replace & Install

There are several types of water heaters available, each with its own features, benefits, and considerations. The type of water heater that’s best for your home depends on factors such as your hot water usage, energy efficiency goals, space availability, and budget. Here are the main types of water heaters we install:

Traditional Storage Tank Water Heater

This is the most common type of water heater found in many homes. It consists of a large tank that holds and heats a specific amount of water. The heated water is stored until it’s needed for use. Conventional storage tank water heaters are available in various sizes to accommodate different household needs.

Tankless (On-Demand) Water Heater

Tankless water heaters heat water directly as it flows through the unit, providing hot water on demand. They don’t store hot water in a tank, which eliminates standby energy losses. Tankless water heaters are compact and energy-efficient, making them ideal for homes with limited space or those looking to reduce energy consumption.

Heat Pump Water Heater

A heat pump water heater uses electricity to move heat from the surrounding air to heat the water. It’s more energy-efficient than traditional electric water heaters because it doesn’t directly generate heat; instead, it transfers heat from the air. Heat pump water heaters are effective in moderate to warm climates.

All Industry Leading Manufacturers

At Maffei Services, we understand that the effectiveness of a water heater is largely contingent on the quality of the equipment. We’re committed to installing water heaters that combine cutting-edge technology with dependability.
We partner with industry-leading manufacturers and handpick products that embody durability and performance. Our inventory comprises equipment that not only meets, but often exceeds, industry standards.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Replacement

Several signs can indicate that your water heater is nearing the end of its lifespan or experiencing significant issues that may warrant replacement. If you notice any of the following signs, it’s a good idea to consider replacing your water heater:
Water heaters typically have a lifespan of around 10-15 years for traditional tank models and 20-25 years for tankless models. If your water heater is approaching or exceeding this age range, it’s a good indication that replacement may be necessary.
If your water heater is no longer providing enough hot water to meet your household’s needs, even after adjusting the thermostat, it could be a sign of a failing heating element, sediment buildup, or other internal issues.
Rusty or discolored water coming from your taps indicates corrosion inside the water heater tank. While this could potentially be repaired, it’s often a sign that the tank is deteriorating, and replacement may be more cost-effective.
A metallic taste or smell in your hot water could indicate corrosion or mineral buildup inside the tank. This can affect the quality of your water and may necessitate replacement.
Visible leaks around the water heater, especially around the base of the tank or from fittings, valves, or pipes, are clear signs that the tank has developed significant issues and may require replacement.
Loud rumbling or popping noises coming from the water heater indicate that sediment has built up in the tank. This sediment can cause overheating and damage the tank, which may necessitate replacement.
If your water heater has completely stopped working and cannot be repaired, replacement is the only option to restore hot water to your home.
An old or inefficient water heater can lead to higher energy bills. If you’ve noticed a steady increase in your energy costs, it could be due to the inefficiency of your water heater.
If you’re frequently calling for repairs to address various issues with your water heater, it might be more cost-effective to invest in a new, reliable unit that won’t require frequent repairs.
If you’re experiencing one or more of these signs, we advise consulting a professional plumber at Maffei Services. We can assess the condition of your water heater and recommend whether repair or replacement is the best course of action based on your specific situation.

This appointment was for an annual service on my new Furnace. Arrived on time, answered any question i had,and completed the service on the Furnace. Tyler also took the time to look at a problem toilet, gave me his thoughts on problem and then provided me a quot to fix. Maffei has generally always done a good job for me.

Tony, Maffei's Comfort Advisor met us at our cold church. He was so careful in checking things out, photographing our failed heating system. And he has gotten back to us in less than a week! Tony and Maffei concluded that Maffei doesn't do this type of project but Tony had several good referrals for us to services that do! Awesome! Thank you!
