Water Heater Maintenance
Much like changing your oil and rotating your tires on your vehicle, water heaters also require annual maintenance. While most people do not think about it, annual preventative maintenance is vital to allow your water heater to operate at a maximum efficiency. Operating at the maximum efficiency level will not only add years of service to your water heater’s life but will also reduce your energy bill as the water heater will be working smarter, not harder.

Types of Water Heaters
Standard Water Heaters
When you think about water heaters, a standard water heater is what comes to mind: a large cylinder full of hot water. Hoffman Plumbing has experience with small 5 gallon water heaters for offices to 100 gallon commercial-grade water heaters. Whether your energy source is electric, propane, or natural gas, Hoffman Plumbing offers a variety of water heaters that will fit your unique need.
Tankless Water Heaters
If you are looking for a water heater that is more efficient to run and less expensive to use, consider a tankless water heater. These water heaters take up less space and only make hot water when you need it, instead of storing and heating gallons of water inside the tank like the standard water heaters.
See the below chart for a comparison between the standard and tankless water heaters in regard to the upfront purchase price, the annual operating cost, and the efficiency of the heaters. The direction of the arrows indicate whether the price or cost is generally higher or lower over the span of your water heater’s life.
Annual Operating Cost
There are many options when it comes to water heaters. When you need a new water heater, the expert staff at Hoffman Plumbing will help you determine the best water heater option for your home or business. Hoffman Plumbing will also work with you to schedule annual preventative maintenance to ensure your water heater is working appropriately and for many long years.
