Water Heater Asheville: Standard, Tankless, High-Efficiency & Hybrids

Which Type Of Water Heater Is Right For You?

When it’s time for a new hot water heater, it can sometimes be difficult to know which type is best for your needs. Take a look at the different types, and then give us a call! We’ll be glad to help you find the type of water heater Asheville that is just right.

Standard Tank-Type Water Heater

Standard water heaters keep water heated and ready for use at all times in insulated tanks ranging from 20–80 gallons in size.
Many fuel options are available, including electricity, natural gas, propane and fuel oil. Since standard water heaters are typically the least expensive up-front they are the most common, but may cost more in the long run.

Tankless (On-Demand) Water Heater

In tankless water heater systems, water is circulated through a large coil and is heated only when needed. As a result, on-demand water heaters offer potentially huge savings on energy bills and an endless supply of hot water anytime you want it. Since there is no storage tank, it can work where space is tight and other water heater options won’t fit.

Hybrid / Heat Pump Water Heater

Hybrid (heat pump) water heaters transfer energy (heat) from the surrounding air to water in a storage tank. Because heat pump water heaters use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly, they work like a refrigerator in reverse. Hybrid water heaters are the most efficient electric option.

Ultra-High Efficiency Gas Water Heater

In an ultra-high efficiency water heater, the water is kept hot and ready in insulated tanks, but unlike standard water heaters, water is reheated as fast as it is used, so it never runs out. Significantly, ultra-high efficiency water heaters can perform at up to 96% energy efficiency. They are an incredibly energy efficient option, albeit they require natural gas or propane.

Energy Efficient Water Heater Installation Asheville

On average, a typical American family of four will use 2,000 gallons of hot water each month—that’s a lot of money down the drain if you’re depending on an inefficient water heater! If it’s time to upgrade your current hot water heater Asheville, or even to determine if your old one is worth keeping you’ll need a professional licensed plumber, and we are at your service.

Heating hot water accounts for approximately 15% of a home’s total energy use. Since high-efficiency water heaters use 10-70% less energy than standard models, they can save you a ton of money on utility bills.(Of course, the range of energy savings from high efficiency water heaters depends on type of water heater, family size, water heater location, and the size and placement of water pipes.)

We have solutions to meet your needs, whether you need a new water heater installation, water heater repairs, or just routine water heater maintenance. In fact, if you don’t need a new water heater just yet, we can insulate pipes to save you money and check the internal workings to make sure that they will last as long as possible. We can repair elements, anode rods, or anything else that might go wrong, as well as advise you of the current options available for new water heaters in Asheville and the surrounding area.

Common Questions About Asheville Water Heater Installation and Repair

How Do I Know If I Need To Replace My Water Heater?

There are many factors that determine whether your water heater can be repaired or will need to be replaced.

What Do I Do If My Water Heater Leaks?

A leaky water heater can quickly cause water damage to your home or belongings. As soon as you notice the water heater leak, try to see if you can tell where it is coming from. Turn off the water coming in to the water heater and place a bucket to cath any drips, if possible. Then call Goodman Plumbing at 828-774-7076 and we will send someone out to help you!

Why Is My Water Heater Leaking from the Top?

Water heater leaks coming from the top may be caused by failing piping or fittings. Call Goodman Plumbing at 828-774-7076 and we will help you determine the root cause of the problem.

What Kind of Water Heater Maintenance Do I Need?

Different type of water heaters need different types of maintenance to help them last as long as possible. Tank types will need to be drained and flushed regularly, especially if you have a lot of sediment. Waiting too long to clean the tank may force a replacement sooner than expected.

Tankless water heaters need to be descaled and cleaned annually. Give us a call at 828-774-7076 and we can schedule an appointment that is convenient for you to get your water heater serviced.

Why Does My Hot Water Smell Bad?

If you notice a bad or sulfury smell coming from the hot water in your water heater, you don’t have to just grimace and bear it! We can correct that! A bad smell in your hot water could be caused by bacteria in your tank or by an anode rod in your water heater that needs to be replaced. Give us a call at 828-774-7076 and we can schedule an appointment that is convenient for you.

How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

The average lifespan of a water heater is between 8-12 years for a conventional water heater model, about 15 years for ultra-high efficiency or heat pump water heaters and 20+ years for tankless water heaters. Water heaters located in garages or crawl spaces, where the temperature drops significantly, have to work harder to heat the water and tend to wear out more quickly. You may want to have your water heater checked out before its an emergency!
