Water Heaters

Water Heater Repair and Replacement

    • Contact Airco for details.

Few appliances are more essential to a comfortable home than a functioning hot water heater. Unfortunately, because hot water heaters are subjected to moisture, sediment from city water supplies and constantly changing temperatures, they don’t last forever.

When you need to repair or replace your hot water heater, contact Airco Service. We’re standing by 24 hours a day to help you select a water heating system that will save you money and provide enough hot water to meet your family’s needs.

Which Water Tank is Right For Your Home?

There are two primary types of hot water heaters: conventional models, with a dedicated water storage tank, and tankless water heaters. Your Airco technician can call upon their plumbing expertise to recommend which model is right for you. Here’s some general information about each type of water heater.

Tankless water heaters are newer models that have ditched the water storage tank associated with traditional models. Water is heated on demand with natural gas or electric coils. Many models can boast ENERGY STAR®-rated efficiency. While up-front costs are a little higher for tankless water heater installation, this energy efficiency could save you more money in the long run.

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters:

  • Save up to 20% on your utility bill with reduced energy costs
  • Never run out of water, so no more cold showers
  • Last 5-10 years longer than conventional water heaters, especially with routine water heater maintenance
  • Take up less space and can be installed on a wall or even outdoors
  • Only use the power you need, no needless heating and wasted energy
  • No possibility of flooding due to a ruptured tank

Conventional water heaters are distinguished by the dedicated water storage tank. The water kept in the tank remains hot, ensuring a fast and convenient supply of hot water. Conventional models can fit into most plumbing systems and rarely require any retrofitting.

Benefits of Conventional Water Heaters:

  • Low-cost unit and installation.
  • Minimal venting requirements.
  • Works with natural gas or electric heating elements.
  • Works well in homes that need a large supply of hot water for a short period of time (if multiple people shower at once, for instance).
  • We have a variety of sizes and features to meet your needs.
  • Designed for easy replacement of an existing tank water heater.

Even after you compare conventional water heaters with tankless models, there are other key features to consider such as the fuel source. Most water heaters use either natural gas or electricity to generate heat. Depending on local fuel prices, you’ll want to install the most cost-efficient option.

Things to consider when choosing a new hot water heater:

The storage tank, fuel source and size of your next water heater will influence how effective it is with the rest of your home’s plumbing. So when considering water heater replacement in Tulsa, take the time to think about your plumbing and the number of appliances and fixtures you use.

  • How many people are in your home? Larger families will use more water every day.
  • How many bathtubs/showers do you have? Additional plumbing fixtures can influence the model you need based on how much hot water is needed at a given time.
  • Do you have a large-volume bathtub or whirlpool? These fixtures require large amounts of hot water all at once. A dedicated storage tank may be the way to go!
  • How many of your appliances require hot water? This can include dishwashers, washing machines, faucets, and even pools or hot tubs.
  • Do you typically run your appliances at the same time? Many homes see heaviest use after work, but your preferences can make a certain model more efficient than other options.
