New Water Heater Installation or Replacement in Saint Charles

When it’s time for a water heater replacement, you have many things to consider. Luckily, Golden Seal Service Experts is ready to help. Before you invest in a new water heater, you should pick which system best fits your family’s requirements. Fortunately, the team of specialists at Golden Seal Service Experts will be able to talk with you about the options you’ll need to choose from, including which type of fuel is optimal for your water heating needs, how big your water heater tank needs to be, how energy efficient the system is and which versions are within your budget.

Types of Water Heaters

  • Traditional tank water heaters store significant amounts of water which is heated and ready to use.
  • Tankless water heaters heat water directly, when you need it.
  • Solar water heaters often times have a storage tank that holds water heated by the sun.

Water Heater Size

The size of your water heater depends on your hot water usage and on the sort of water heater you buy. Golden Seal Service Experts can help resolve that by helping you understand your hot water usage, the flow rate of various devices in your living space and how many of the systems you’ll need to use at the same time.

For tankless water heaters, the procedure will be similar in that a local specialist from Golden Seal Service Experts can assess your needs, including your projected temperature increase based on the temperature of your water when it enters your living space. After we’ve compiled the math for you, we’ll recommend a few selections as tankless water heaters are typically rated on a variety of inlet temperatures.

Sizing a traditional tank water heater can be a little easier than a tankless water heater because our experts only need to identify how much water needs to be gathered to meet your water needs at peak usage. It can all be a bit overwhelming but we’re here to help you.

Fuel Type

Depending on your location and other aspects, you have a variation of options for powering your new water heater. It can also vary on where you live, but Golden Seal Service Experts will provide you with information on the best options for the Saint Charles area and your specific needs.

Tankless Water Heaters

If you’re in Saint Charles, a tankless water heater is a fantastic option for saving energy. It has between 80% and 92% efficiency. Not only will tankless water heaters save space, but they also work in a totally different way than conventional tank-style water heaters, which heat all of the stored water at once. The difficulty with that is—if the heated water doesn’t get used up—the water cools eventually and needs to be reheated.

Tankless Water Heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water only when necessary, which saves big-time on energy bills. Think what it would be like to have a non-stop supply of hot water. Yes… with a tankless system you can run your washing machine…and still get a hot shower! They are small in size, energy-efficient in design, and low-cost to run.

Tank Water Heaters 

With ENERGYSTAR®-certified models, and backed by the professional plumbing team at Golden Seal Service Experts, you can be assured that you won’t have to worry about taking a shower with cold water (unless you wanted to).

The tank water heater is designed to heat and store water in the tank, usually 40 or 50 gallons at a time. When the dishwasher, the washing machine, or a soothing hot shower runs, the pre-heated water that’s stored in the tank flows quickly to the point of use. The tank then refills, and the water is reheated. Tankless water heaters heat water on demand and can provide a virtually unlimited supply of hot water. But honestly, there are positives and negatives to both types of hot water heaters, and the decision to purchase one or the other should be based on your desires.
