Here’s how we go farther so you get better results in the long term:
We recommend water heaters that are sized correctly for your family’s needs, and will provide enough heating power to achieve a good temperature even on the coldest winter day.
We use two people to carry in your water heater, not just one. This gives better control, and ensures we don’t damage your home.
We only recommend brands we know from experience work well for our customers. We’ve been installing John Wood water tanks for almost 50 years, and Rinnai tankless water heaters for over 10 years. We use the same brands that we have in our own homes.
We upgrade our skills whenever possible, especially since technology keeps changing. We take courses and have regular information sharing sessions.
Details matter. Things like advanced welding skills training ensure a quality installation.
Water Heater Brands We Trust
Navien Tankless Water Heaters
Not only does Navien offer some of the most energy efficient tankless water heaters available, they boast other great features too. For example their smaller gas line size makes them easier and less expensive to install when converting from a tank. They also have a timer that allows you to control when it’s on ‘standy’ with a few cups of water always kept warm for you. Learn more >
Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters
Rinnai has impressed us with its performance, reliability, and energy efficiency. You can use all the hot water you need, no matter how many other people are in your family. Our customers have reported up to 40% savings on their energy bills when switching from a traditional tank. Learn more >
John Wood Hot Water Tanks
If a hot water tank is a better fit for your budget, you can still get a tank with decent efficiency and corrosion resistant features. They’re known for both innovation and reliability – John Wood was the first tank to use a glass liner to prevent rust.
