Eventually it becomes time for a new water heater. That could be because of a leaking tank, the prospect of an expensive repair, or simply a unit that is in poor condition or nearing the end of its expected lifetime (hot water heaters typically last anywhere from 8 to 15 years, depending on the quality of materials and construction among other factors). For new construction or expansions, our experts can determine the right tank size and burner or heating element capacity.

New Federal energy-efficiency standards have a big impact on larger water heater installations (above 55 gallon tanks). Gas-fired units must have a special condensing heat exchanger and electric heaters must now use heat pump technologies. Energy savings should more than pay for the added cost, but you could be facing double the cost for a new installation, or more. We’ll be happy to explain these new requirements, and depending on your situation may be able to offer some cost-saving solutions that also save energy.

Redlands California

The “Jewel of the Inland Empire” lies 10 miles east of downtown San Bernardino, with an estimated 2013 population of 70,000. Its location was first visited by the Spanish in the 1770s, and what became Redlands was a mission outpost started in 1810. The first settlers were Mormons, who purchased all of Rancho San Bernardino in 1842, but left for Utah in 1857.  Skipping ahead to the mid and late 20th century, the area shifted from agriculture to become a bedroom community for military personnel and aerospace workers supporting Norton Air Force Base. Redlands was home to Joan Baez (folksinger) and Jerry Lewis (the former congressman, not the comedian).
