We stock Rheem traditional tank water heaters for both electric and gas systems, and heat pump water heaters, that is particularly well suited for central Florida homeowners. If you have natural gas you should consider new high-efficiency tankless systems for Rinnai and Noritz.
Heat pump water heaters are a relatively new option for homeowners in Orange County. They extract heat for ambient air and both air-condition and de-humidify as a by-product of producing hot water. They are over 270% more efficient than an electric water heater and can save hundreds of dollars per year in energy.
Tankless water heaters are compact heating units that provide hot water as it is needed and do not store hot water like traditional tank-type water heaters. When a hot water tap is turned on, water enters the tankless water heater. A sensor detects the water flow and activates an electric or gas heating device, which quickly raises the water temperature to a preset level.
Because tankless heaters do not store water, they are less subject to corrosion than tank-type heaters. As a result, their expected equipment life is possibly longer - more than 20 years, compared with 10 - 15 years for traditional heaters. Also, because they are not heating 40 - 50 gallons of water 24 hours a day, tankless water heaters are less susceptible to leakage than tank-type water heaters.
Unlike traditional storage-tank water heaters, tankless water heaters do not store a reservoir of hot water. As a result, standby losses are reduced, which makes them an energy-efficient alternative to traditional water heating. There will always be hot water - endless hot water - for bathing, cooking, dishes, laundry, and all the other countless ways hot water enriches our lives. Tankless water heaters consume a fraction of the space consumed by a tank heater. They can be mounted inside or outside. Their small size allows for installation in non-traditional spaces such as crawl spaces and attics, making it perfect for use in any size home.
Conventional storage water heater fuel sources include natural gas, propane, and electricity. All conventional water heaters store hot water 24 hours per day in a storage tank, typically ranging in volume from 20 to 120 gallons. We provide installation service and repair on a wide variety of tank water heaters and install high-efficiency Bradford White tank water heaters. Conventional water heaters are often the lowest installed cost choice for replacing an existing system.
