Homeowners and building managers often wonder about the choice between water heater repair or water heater replacement. If the tank itself is corroded and leaking, then there’s really no choice other than a new water heater installation. We generally suggest replacing any unit that is past its warranty, and are happy to discuss expected lifetimes, repair, and maintenance with you so you can make an informed decision. Besides replacing old or broken equipment, you may need a water heater replacement to upgrade capacity or to reduce energy costs by improving efficiency. Hot water can be up to 1/4 of a household’s energy use, and can be an even higher portion for many types of businesses. Our installers will get the job done right, usually in a single day, to minimize disruption. We always work with proper permits, inspections, and we will haul-away your old water heater.


Tankless Water Heaters

Rather than warming a tank back up after water has been used, Tankless water heaters do all the heating as water flows through them. Small units can often be placed at the point of use, delivering nearly instant hot water. You heat only the water you actually use, and there’s no big tank constantly cooling down. That can reduce hot-water energy bills by up to 30%. Tankless water heaters have lifetimes of 15 to 20 years with regular maintenance. At Design Air we’re experts in installing, repairing, and maintaining these innovative units.

New Energy-Efficiency Regulations

All hot water heater models manufactured after April 16, 2015 must meet new federal energy-efficiency requirements. For smaller standard units, below 55 gallons, there are no major differences. But for larger tanks there will be significant added costs on gas heaters for special condensing heat exchangers. Electric units face even bigger changes. They must use heat pump technology rather than the electric-resistance elements that have been used for generations. The payoff is big — you’ll save up to 60% of the water heater part of your electric bill. But these models will be a lot taller and far more expensive. We’re ready to discuss some cost-saving options with you, including mixing valves or a combination of Tankless water heaters and standard tank units.
