Types of Water Heaters We Repair, Service & Replace

The technology associated with water heaters is always improving and so is our commitment to delivering you the best options at affordable prices. Our talented team of plumbers are continually training to keep their knowledge up to date with industry changes.

Tankless Water Heaters

Instant Hot Water: Tankless water heaters provide hot water when you need it versus standard water heaters the water stored in the tank (40-60 galloons) hot all the time. By providing instant hot water and minimizing energy losses, a tankless water heater translates saves you up to 30% on your hot water energy use. Saving both energy and money.

Space Saving: Tankless water heaters are compact and are designed to save space. Wall mounts keep them off the ground and out of the way.

Reduced Risk of Water Damage: A tankless water heater does not have a tank of water reducing the risk of leaks, and other costly water damage.

Longer System Life: When maintained properly tankless water heaters can last 20+ years, whereas a traditional tank style water heater’s lifespan is typically 10-15 years (or less in areas where hard water is a major problem).

Traditional Water Heaters

The standard tank water heater the most common in Texas homes. Tank style water heaters can be heated by natural gas, propane or electricity. They are widely available and cost effective. The Wizards of Comforts team of professional plumbers can installing, repair, and maintain your standard tank style water heater.

Hybrid Water Heaters

A hybrid water heater is a standard tank water heater combined with an energy-efficient heat pump. Similar to how your heat pump heats and cools your home it uses electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat itself. This makes the hybrid water heater more efficient than traditional electric tank style water heaters.

WATER HEATER Maintenance

Extend Your Water Heater’s Life

Your water heater is one of the most-used systems in your Hill Country home, and just like your heating and cooling system, your water heater needs annual maintenance to keep it operating at peak performance. Over time, sediment (the matter that settles and builds up at the bottom of the water) can build up within your water heater which causes performance issues, and if left unaddressed, can lead to early system failure.

Whether you have a standard or tankless water heater, sediment, calcium, and other naturally occurring minerals will accumulate in your system. Since the water in the Hill Country is naturally high in calcium and magnesium, our water is typically hard. In fact, Texas has some of the hardest water in the country, and when you have harder water, the rate of sediment buildup in your water heater increases. As part of our annual water heater maintenance services, we will flush the system to remove as much sediment as possible.

While we are flushing your water heater, our licensed plumber will inspect your system to determine the condition of the components and check for safety issues.

This vital water heater service will help keep your system operating efficiently to increase the availability of hot water, decrease energy use, help ensure safe operation, reduce breakdowns, and promote longer water heater life.
