Signs you may need water heater repair include:

  • Your water isn’t running clear

There’s nothing worse than not having hot water when you need it! Rely on Doug’s to perform expert water heater repair quickly and correctly so you can get back to enjoying your home’s hot water.

Tank vs. Tankless Water Heaters

Storage tank water heaters are found in a majority of homes. They usually contain anywhere from 30 to 50 gallons of water, and they store and heat the water when needed. While their installation cost is significantly lower than tankless water heaters, they use up to 41 gallons more water each day and are less energy efficient than their tankless counterparts. Although tankless water heaters are more expensive to install, they save homeowners money over time, they heat water almost immediately, and they do not consume the space of a storage tank water heater. Depending on your specific needs, our plumbers can help you determine which type of water heater is best for you and your home.
