Serving Maryland

The water heater is an appliance that many homeowners don't think about too often, yet it's one that they depend upon every day. Can you imagine getting up to go to work and not being able to take a hot shower? Here at Stang Plumbing & Heating, all of our technicians are trained to perform water heater installation in Maryland. The following are a few things that you should know about water heater installation:

The Importance of Proper Water Heater Installation in Maryland

Our technicians will make sure that your water heater is properly installed so that it will function at its optimal performance, whether you are installing a conventional gas or electric water heater, a solar water heater or a tankless water heater. Additionally, we will be able to help you determine the proper size of your water heater. Not sizing a conventional water heater properly will result in poor performance and poor efficiency. For example, if the water heater is too small, then your household won't receive the hot water it needs. Say your family of five all take hot showers in the morning - if the water heater is too small, you may run out of hot water by the fourth or fifth shower. If your water heater is too large, then you are simply wasting energy heating up water you don't need, which results in higher heating costs.

Types of Water Heaters

The following are a few of the different types of water heaters that we can properly install into your home:

  • Conventional Water Heater - A conventional water heater stores its water in a tank available in various capacities. It uses gas or electricity in order to heat up the water within the tank and to maintain its temperature until the water is delivered through a pipe to a faucet. The average conventional water heater will last between seven and 11 years.
  • Tankless Water Heater - Tankless water heaters are typically more efficient than conventional water heaters because they heat up water as its needed instead of storing hot water. Basically, it contains a heating element that turns on when the hot water is requested, heating water as it passes through before it is delivered. Tankless water heaters are much smaller than conventional water heaters and can be hung on the wall, but they do require larger gas lines in addition to special venting. Most tankless water heaters will last between 15 and 20 years.
  • Solar Water Heater - Solar water heaters use the sun's energy in order to heat up water. A passive solar water heater is less expensive and lasts longer, but is not as efficient. An active solar water heater uses pumps and controls to circulate hot water. Solar water heaters do require storage tank insulation and a backup system.
