Water Heaters

Considering a new water heater? Or are you having issues with your current water heater? Seaside handles installation, repair and routine maintenance of all types of water heaters, both tanked and tankless. Often our customers will ask "What do you recommend - a tanked or tankless?" There is no perfect answer to this question, it depends on the individual preference and situation.

Gas Tankless Water Heaters

Pros

Cons

We typically do not recommend electric tankless water heaters for a whole house scenario. They need a serious amount of electrical amperage to operate, in most cases 4 double-pole breakers are required to be dedicated to this appliance. A typical home does not usually have that extra space in their breaker box to run an electric tank-less water heater.

Traditional Tanked Water Heaters (Gas or Electric)

Pros

Cons

Both tanked and tankless water heaters should be routinely maintenanced and flushed in order to operate efficiently and properly. Sediment can gather on the bottom of tanks or within the tankless units which can affect the lifespan, water quality and in some cases void the warranty.

A qualified and licensed plumbing contractor should be able to give you an estimate in writing with all of the details spelled out on either a tanked or tankless water heater. BEWARE of low estimates! It's very important that tankless water heaters are installed correctly and sized to sufficiently meet your demand. Tankless water heaters must also be properly vented and sometimes require upgrading your gas line to a larger size - this is where many contractors will cut corners in order to get the job.

Give us a call and we'd be happy to schedule service for your water heater or discuss what type of water heater may be best for you.

Win A Free Water Saving Toilet

Sustainability is something that is very important to us. We are all so fortunate to have a clean supply of water, it truly is a precious resource - however that supply is severely limited so we all must do our part to reduce water usage.

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we want to eliminate all of the old water-guzzling toilets so we will be giving away 4 free low flow toilets every year.
