Water heaters are one of the most important appliances in any home. However, they can often go overlooked until they start to have issues. With the many types currently available, how do you know which water heater to buy? There are a few factors to consider, like size, costs, and energy efficiency.
At Bovio Rubino Service, we can guide you through selecting a new hot water heater and help find the right one for your South Jersey home.
When to Replace Your Water Heater
The average lifespan of a water heater varies depending on the type and manufacturer, though they generally need to be replaced after about 10 years. The most telling sign of a degrading water heater is the lack of hot water, but there are many other symptoms to look out for, like:
- Discolored water
- A frequent need for repairs (more than two a year)
- Strange noises
Energy Efficient Water Heaters From Bovio Rubino
At Bovio Rubino Service, we pride ourselves in being industry leaders for our services. That means we only choose the best hot water heaters to install for our clients. Here are the brands that we currently carry.
Gas Water Heaters From Bradford White
For traditional tank storage water heaters, Bradford White systems are among the best available. They have built a reputation for their innovative products and their gas water heaters can meet your daily usage needs with ease. Bradford White gas water heaters are both energy efficient and reliable with added features, including:
- Vitraglas® tank lining to protect the steel from corrosion.
- Hydrojet® Total Performance System to reduce sediment.
- ICON System™ enhanced performance, diagnostics, and troubleshooting.
Tankless On-Demand Water Heaters From Navien
A tankless water heater is more efficient than a gas water heater, because they only produce heat when it’s needed. This means you won’t waste energy and time waiting for a tank to warm up its reserves. Navien tankless electric water heaters come in a compact design to save space and have a lifespan of up to 20 years with proper maintenance.
Navien makes condensing and non-condensing water heaters. Condensing hot water heaters are equipped with a second heat exchanger which improves its efficiency and increases the amount of hot water it can deliver. Non-condensing hot water heaters are still efficient, but offer more flexibility because they are smaller and do not require a drain.
