Water Heating Services
After your heating and air conditioning system, not much else in your home consumes more energy than your water heater. And unlike your heating & air conditioning systems which only run seasonally, your water heater needs to work flawlessly every single day of the year.
Water Heating Options
If you’re like most people, you’re unlikely to go out looking for a water heater until your existing one fails. That will happen at the worst possible time — like just after guests arrive for a week-long visit. You’ll have to rush out and put in whatever is available, without taking the time to look for a water heater that best fits your needs and offers real energy efficiency. A much better approach is to do some research now.
Storage Water Heaters
Storage water heaters are by far the most common type of water heater in use in the U.S. today. Ranging in size from 20 to 80 gallons (or larger) and fueled by electricity, natural gas, propane, or oil, storage water heaters work by heating water in an insulated tank. When you turn on the hot water tap, hot water is pulled out of the top of the water heater and cold water flows into the bottom to replace it. The hot water is always there, ready for use. Because heat is lost through the walls of the storage tank (standby heat losses) and in the pipes after you’ve turned the faucet off (distribution losses), energy is consumed even when no hot water is being used. New energy-efficient storage water heaters contain higher levels of insulation around the tank to reduce this standby heat loss.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
Heat pump water heaters (HPWH) can be two to three times more energy efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters. HPWH use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly. To move the heat, heat pumps work like a refrigerator in reverse. Prime Heating & Air provides maintenance and repair to all makes and models of conventional tank water heaters. While a refrigerator pulls heat from inside a box and dumps it into the surrounding room, a stand-alone air source water heater pulls heat from the surrounding air and dumps it – at a higher temperature – into a tank to heat water. We carry stand-alone heat pump water heating systems from several manufacturers. They are all integrated units with a built-in water storage tank and back-up resistance heating elements.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water whenever you need it – even for multiple tasks at the same time. Tankless units revolutionaize comfort, energy efficiency and convenience.
High Efficiency Tank Water Heaters
High-Efficiency tank water heaters are a reliable and economic choice for heating water in smaller homes. Newer models have a much faster recovery time than older systems. Save on time and money with a tank system!
Things to Consider
- The power supply or gas-line you currently have in your house
- The space occupied by the appliances
- The level of usage (for few individuals or a larger group)
- The Source with which it has to be operated (gas or electricity)
- Emergency service is available. Give us a call us today!
Never Run Out Of Hot Water AGAIN!
When You Need Us
It’s Time For Prime
If possible, replace your existing water heater before it fails. Most water heaters have a lifespan of 10–15 years. If yours is up there in age, have Prime take a look at it and advise you on how much useful life it has left. If it’s in bad shape, replace it now before it starts leaking or the burner stops working. In fact, it often makes sense to replace an inefficient water heater even if it’s in good shape. The energy savings alone could pay for the new water heater after just a few years, and you’ll be happy knowing that you are dumping fewer pollutants into the air and less money down the drain.
