The Benefits of Gas Water Heaters
Compared to electric water heaters, gas heaters work faster. They recover more quickly compared to their electric counterparts, which means they can easily replenish your supply of hot water. A gas water heater is perfect for a large household or places with a high demand for a hot water heater.
Low Energy Costs
Gas water heaters are one of the most efficient types of water heaters, which saves you money because they use energy more efficiently than other types of tank-type water heater. The cost of gas is often less expensive than the cost for electricity or other heating types, so this will also save you money.
Affordable Installation Cost
If you already have a pre-existing gas line at your home or building, installing a new gas water heater will be that much easier and affordable. While our technicians can easily connect your water heater to the gas line, we advise you to not attempt a DIY installation due to the associated flammable risks.

Considering Your Water Heater Energy Usage
Many people ask, “What kind of water heater should I buy?” There are several factors to consider when shopping for a gas water heater, which include the energy factor (EF) rating, costs, availability of energy sources, and price of the system.
The EF is the most important factor to consider. This rating was established by the US Department of Energy to compare the energy efficiency of different water heaters. The rule of thumb is simple: the higher the EF, the more efficient the unit is. The EF measurement considers the following:
- Cycling loss. The loss of heat as the water circulates through your gas water heater.
- Recovery efficiency. How the gas water heater efficiently heats up your water.
- Standby loss. The percentage of heat loss.
Frequently Asked Questions
Common Water Heater Service Questions We Hear
Why does my water heater not work as well as it used to?
In most cases, sediment buildup is the primary culprit behind water heater issues (aside from age). As your water heater becomes older, they accumulate lime deposits & sediment that needs to be regularly drained and flushed. If not maintained, the sediment creates a barrier between the water and the burner, greatly reducing your water heater’s performance.
What causes hot water to be brown and rusty?
Chemicals can cause rust in the water lines, which changes the water pressure. This causes the rust to come through the water lines and end up in your tub, shower, and other appliances. A break in the pipe could also cause rusting inside your water heater. When you turn on the flow, the water pushes the dirt along the pipes until it comes out of the showerhead or tap.
What is the best temperature to set my water heater at?
While deciding what water heater temperature is a personal preference, most people are comfortable with setting their unit thermostats to 120⁰F – this is the normal manufacturer recommendation.
If you have an older water heater, setting your unit to a medium setting can help lengthen your heater’s lifespan along with performing regular drain, flushes, and maintenance.
How do I turn off the gas and water to the water heater?
Knowing how to turn your gas water heater on and off could save you from an extra plumbing bill. If you smell gas or see a water leak, turn off the gas and water to your heater ASAP and give us a call.
You can shut off the gas and water from the water heater itself, which turns off all the water and gas from the stopcock and meter. We can walk you through this process over the phone as well.
