Water Heater Installation

When it comes to choosing a new water heater for your home, there are a number of options to consider. For instance, have you heard of the benefits of a tankless system? How about a heat pump water heater? More on that below!

The first decision you’ll need to make for a water heater installation is whether you want a gas powered system or electric. Many homeowners opt for the gas water heater by default, since natural gas is a more affordable fuel choice to use from month to month. But for homeowners choosing to forgo any potential risks associated with gas, an electric water heater may be the better option. That’s not to say natural gas appliances are inherently dangerous—but they do come with risks if not properly cared for and serviced.

Your Water Heater System Options

You can turn to our Winnetka technicians for all your water heater needs, whether you’re having a brand new system put in or you need service for your existing water heater. If you are shopping for the first time, the options you have available include:

  • Tank Water Heaters: The tank water heater, also known as the storage tank water heater, is the most common type found in homes today, and for good reason! Either gas jets or electric heating elements raise the temperature of the water in a tank, where the hot water is stored until needed. Gas is a popular fuel choice with this option. Remember though, if you’ve always had a tank water heater, you don’t have to stick with this—we offer flexible water heating solutions, including retrofits for older homes.
  • Tankless Water Heaters: As the name implies, a tankless water heater doesn’t require a tank. Instead of relying on a storage supply of water, these systems work "on demand," meaning their elements don’t heat up until there’s a demand for it from your faucets or appliances. Since there is not standby water loss, this is an extremely efficient type of water heater.
  • Heat Pump Water Heaters: Looking to heat the water in your Winnetka area home as effectively and affordably as possible? Consider the installation of a heat pump water heater. This system draws heat from the air around the water heater and applies it to the water in the tank—which consumes less energy than using heating elements.
