Water Heater Repair
Most water heaters last between 8 and 12 years. If your hot water heater is leaking, or not heating properly, it’s a good bet it’s time for a replacement. While we can make repairs, if you have an older model, it’s most likely a replacement will be more cost effective.

Tankless Water Heaters
According to Consumer Reports, up to 30 percent of the average home’s energy budget goes toward heating water. With the rising costs of electricity and natural gas, many homeowners are looking for more energy-efficient solutions for hot water, such as tankless water heaters.
A tank storage heater is the kind of water heater you’re probably most familiar with. It uses either gas or electricity to heat several gallons of water, which is stored in the tank until it’s needed. The water in the tank cools over time, so the heating element has to keep firing back up to reheat the water. If a lot of hot water is used in a short time, it could run out, and you’d have to wait for more water to be heated.
Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, use gas or electricity to heat water directly as it’s being used. For this reason, they’re also referred to as on-demand heaters. With a tankless system, you never have to worry about running out of hot water, and you can save energy by only heating water as you need it. Although tankless water heaters have a higher initial cost than storage water heaters, the tankless versions typically last more than 20 years, compared to only 10-15 years for a storage unit.
Reddi Plumbing has several models of tankless water heaters to choose from, and we install and maintain all types.
