Water Heater Choices
Homeowners and property managers in Las Vegas, NV now have choices when it comes to making hot water. Many of these options did not exist a few years ago.
Silverstate Plumbers now offers much more than the standard, builder's grade, storage tank water heater. Cheap water heaters are the type that most plumbers will quote in their advertising. But, they cost more to operate according to consumer groups and the experience of Silverstate Plumbers.
Plumbers are not salesmen so they don’t do a good job of explaining why you should never buy a cheap water heater. On the other hand, a top rated plumber wants a well educated client and will do what ever it takes to help homeowners and commercial property managers learn that they need to know about today’s water heaters.
Types of Water Heaters Available in Las Vegas
Residents of Las Vegas can get a water heater that will produce unlimited amounts of hot water. They are known as a tankless water heaters. Homeowners can have a solar water heater installed with a back-up gas or electric storage tank water heater. And there are heat pump assisted, electric and gas water heaters known as hybrid water heaters. All of these will lower the cost of making hot water, but at a steep, up-front price.
The bottom line is that Silverstate Plumbing’s experience has shown that paying a few dollars more for a upgraded, storage tank water heater is the best option for most families. Upgrading to a tankless water heater is a viable option for families that use large quantities of hot water, but the upfront costs are much higher than a storage tank unit. Solar and hybrid technology are good for special situations.
Silverstate Plumbers of Las Vegas believes that now is a good time to do your homework. Homeowners should research the different types of water heaters available before the old one starts leaking. Call a local plumbing contractor and have them do a site inspection to see what the actual costs would be to upgrade to a tankless or even a solar water heater.
