It gets pretty hot in Las Vegas during the summer. But you probably still want a warm shower. And you definitely need plenty of hot water in winter. So is your water heater doing its job? Need a new water heater or a repair? Our friendly and experienced team will find the best way to keep you comfortable.
That all depends on the size of your home, your budget and how much water you use. Here is an overview of the types of system you can get.
Efficient, with a cheap unit cost and cheap to install; they’re also good for the planet. Electric is also a safer option than gas. However, they can take a while to heat when compared to gas.
Low-cost to run and more compact if your household heats a lot of water. Gas is fast heating up large quantities of water. And gas systems even work during power outages.
A super efficient tankless system is a larger upfront investment but could save you big money on bills. Never store hot water again, and never run out of hot water.
ICE Air Conditioning & Plumbing specialists take our jobs very seriously and only recommend a new water heater if that’s what you really need.
If it's rusted through inside, it’s time for a new water heater installation. Leaks around the bottom of the water heater are also a bad sign. And if you’ve had it more than 10 years? Then a new unit could be a better investment than maintenance.
But your issue might be a smaller one, so then it would make more sense to repair it. Water heaters often leak or break down because of problems with valves, fuses or breakers. So in that case, water heater repair is your best bet.
The cost of water heaters varies quite a lot. The most basic version is around $1,000 and this goes up to about $7,500. What does the price depend on?
ICE Air Conditioning & Plumbing specialists will give you our honest advice on water heater installation for your circumstances. How large is your home? How many bathrooms do you have? And how often do you use hot water for bathing, and running appliances like dishwashers or washing machines?
As a general guide, if you have one bathroom and use hot water sparingly, you could get a 30-40 gallon water heater.
Need more hot water than that? For customers with 3 bathrooms we recommend a 50-80 gallon capacity. Gas heaters are smaller, while you’ll need a larger one if it’s electric.
Six months to once a year is a good call. A regular water heater maintenance check allows the specialist to spot any small issues you may have before they become big problems.
During the check, we look for things like slow leaking valves or low water pressure. That way you and your family won’t have to deal with any breakdowns or freezing cold showers.
