Reasons to Choose a Traditional Water Heater

Because conventional water heaters are the most common type of water heater, maintenance and repairs tend to be an easy and often relatively inexpensive process due to the wide availability of replacement parts. Choose Friendly Plumber, Heating and Air for water heater installation services throughout Salt Lake City.


What to Consider When Buying a New Conventional Water Heater

Fuel Type

When installing a new tank water heater, you can choose between gas or electric models. Each type comes with different energy costs and other factors to consider, so be sure to choose the type of system that best meets your needs.



Make sure your water heater can keep up with the requirements of your home. Water heaters are typically available in capacities from 20-80 gallons. Larger homes with more people will need larger water heaters to keep up with the demand for hot water.



Water heaters feature efficiency ratings that tell the user how efficiently the system heats the water. The greater the system’s efficiency, the lower the energy consumption and operating costs will be.



Depending on a variety of factors, including fuel type, size, and overall system efficiency, each conventional water heater will have a different upfront cost. Pay close attention to the cost of the system, and find one that matches your budget.
