The benefits of a tank water heater include:

- There’s no lag time between turning on the faucet and getting your hot water
- It’s cheaper than tankless models upfront
It’s never good when you turn on the hot water and it’s just not there! If you are having this problem or want to prevent it, talk to us today about installing a new water heater, so you are never left out in the cold!
Tankless water heaters are the new kid on the block in America but about 90% of the world uses tankless. Have an endless supply of hot water for your family. Instead of taking up a bunch of space to store water and keep it warm until you need it, a tankless water heater hangs on your wall and only heats water as you need it.
At World Class Services, we can help you decide whether a tankless water heater will meet your needs. We’ll look at how much hot water you use, how big your home is, and how many people live there, and then we’ll give you our honest opinion about what will and will not work for you.
Tankless water heaters may be new, but they have a lot to offer:
- A higher level of energy efficiency than traditional water heaters
- Fresher hot water
- No danger of leaks from the water heater
- Longer life than tank water heaters
- More space that you can use for storage or something fun
Don’t end up in a situation where you are miserable without hot water. If you have questions about your hot water supply or you’d like to know more about tankless water heaters, give us a call and we will make sure your hot water never runs out.
Electric VS. Gas Heat Pumps
Electric Heat Pumps
If you’re looking for a new water heater, consider a heat pump water heater, especially if your home is already wired for a regular electric one, they are 340% more efficient. At World Class Services, we will help you find a water heater that fulfills your needs and fits into your budget.
If you’re not sure how your current water heater is powered, we can figure that out for you quickly and easily. Then we will assess your hot water needs, examine your budget, and find models that meet all of your criteria.
Still not sure you want a heat pump water heater? Here are some of their advantages:
- Lower cost of installation than switching to gas
- 340% more efficient than a regular electric water heater
- Smaller space requirements, since gas heaters must have ventilation space
- Increased safety, since electric water heaters don’t have a pilot light or any risk of a gas leak
Many conventional water heaters run on electricity, and they can do so reliably and efficiently for years to come. There’s no reason to risk losing your hot water supply when we can order and install your electric heat pump water heater today. It’s less hassle to do it now before you have any problems than it is to wait until the hot water is gone, start saving money today. Don’t Wait!
Gas Heat Pumps
If your home already has a gas line, you may want to consider a gas-powered water heater the next time you replace yours. While adding the gas line can cost thousands of dollars, there’s no reason not to use one that’s already there.
At World Class Services, we can help you figure out what you already have installed in your home and whether a gas water heater or an electric heat pump would work best for you. We can help you figure out if the added upfront costs that can come with getting a gas water heater will be worthwhile in the long run.
The advantages of a gas water heater include:
- Hot water during blackouts. If you have an electric heat pump water heater, it won’t work when the power goes out. A gas model, on the other hand, should keep you supplied with warm water.
- Faster water heating. Most gas water heaters heat significantly faster than comparable electric models. If you think you might use all of the water in your tank sometimes, a gas model may work better for you.
Depending on the relative prices of gas and electricity where you live, the gas models may cost less to run, too. Let us help you figure out the pieces to the puzzle and find the water heater that’s best for you and your family.
Geothermal or Boiler
If you are serious about energy efficiency and you already have a geothermal or boiler in your home, give us a call and we will see if you could use your existing pump for water heating purposes, too. Water heaters simply use your existing geothermal or boiler to move heat into the water heater, rather than requiring the appliance to generate heat directly.
Are you using a geothermal heat pump system to control the temperature of your house? You can buy a desuperheater to attach to this system and provide you with hot water, as well. These can work with both conventional (tank) water heaters and tankless models.
The big advantage of a water heater is that it will save you money. You won’t need as much gas or electricity to move the hot air from one place to another as you would to generate heat, so your bills will be substantially lower.
Not sure if this is a good option for you? At World Class Services, we know how to assess your existing system and your needs and determine whether a geothermal or boiler would work for you. Give us a call and we will find the solution that’s best for you!
