From cooking to cleaning to bathing, plus a hundred other things, we rely heavily on our water heaters in our day-to-day lives. But just like anything else, water heaters suffer wear and tear over time.

Even the most expensive and well-maintained water heaters need replacing eventually. In fact, the average lifespan of a water heater is around 10 years. While some water heaters can continue to function effectively after that, if your water heater is 10 or more years old, it’s time to start thinking about getting a replacement.

Whether you’ve been living in your current home for many years or you just moved in after buying it from the previous owner, having a water heater you can count on is important. That’s where Avalanche Services comes in.

We’re proud to offer a range of plumbing services, including water heater replacement in Lake Ariel and Greater NEPA. Not sure if you need a full replacement or just some water heater repairs? Call us today and our technicians will help you weigh your options!

What Are the 3 Main Kinds of Water Heaters?

All water heaters are not created equally. When getting a water heater replacement in Lake Ariel and surrounding areas, it’s important to consider what style of water heater is best suited to meeting your needs.

Fortunately, the water heater installation and replacement professionals at Avalanche Services have the knowledge and experience necessary to help you make the right choice.

Gas Water Heaters

Gas water heaters use a gas-fired burner at the very bottom of the tank to heat water starting from the bottom up. Gas water heaters tend to be faster and more energy efficient, and can be used even during power outages. However, your home must already have gas in order for a gas water heater to be installed. Additionally, gas water heaters tend to have shorter lifespans.

Electric Water Heaters

Electric water heaters use high-voltage electric heating runs that run vertically through the tank and heat water from the center outward. Electric water heaters run cleaner and safer than gas heaters, are often available at a lower purchase price, and come in a wider number of shapes and sizes. That said, electric water heaters work much slower and have higher operating costs.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand water heaters, use super-heated coils that fill with water as needed, heating even large amounts of water all at once very quickly. While tankless water heaters are generally more energy efficient than either conventional gas or electric heaters, this comes at the cost of a lower flow rate, making it harder to heat water for multiple appliances at the same time.
