New Water Heater Installation

For new installations and water heater replacement, we only install equipment from the best manufacturers in the industry. Our go-to brand for water heater installation is Bradford White, due to their superior service life spans, generous warranties, and overall reliability.

Whether you choose a 40-gallon gas water heater or a high-efficiency 75-gallon heat pump water heater, it’s hard to go wrong with Bradford White.

Why Heat Pump Water Heaters Are Great for Homes

Heat pump water heaters rely on more than one method to heat the water. The AeroTherm® Series we install first operates as a heat pump water heater. This is a highly energy-efficient method of heating, but at times of very high demand, it may not be enough.

That’s why the system also has an electric heating device as a backup. It can always deliver hot water when you need it. If you choose to, you can set the AeroTherm to electric operation only or an energy-saving vacation mode.

Other benefits of the heat pump water heaters we offer include:

  • Quiet operation normally, and an even quieter mode

  • Simple electronic controls make it easy to control

  • Easy installation, so your plumber can work quickly

  • Ideal for indoor installation in basements, attics, etc.

  • Offers monitoring information about its performance

Don’t Forget About Preventative Water Heater Maintenance

Water heaters are designed to keep running for years with little maintenance, but that doesn’t mean no maintenance.

We recommend that all homeowners have their water heaters flushed every one to two years. All water heaters, including gas and electric, tankless, and heat pump water heaters, can accumulate debris deposited by your home’s water supply.

This buildup can damage your water heater, shave years off its life span, reduce its efficiency, increase your utility bills, and make your hot water less than pleasant. Left unchecked, it can even kill a water heater.

Our qualified professionals quickly identify water heater problems, including rust that leads to major leaks or mold growth that indicates a small leak, so you can step in before there’s major damage to your home.

Every team member has undergone a personality assessment to ensure they’re well suited for customer service, so we can offer you both technical skills and friendly, honest communication.
