Gas Water Heater Services

Are you shopping for a new water heater? Making a careful selection will ensure exceptional performance and low energy bills.

Could a gas water heater be right for your home? It’s the most popular fuel type for water heaters across the country, and for good reason. Learn how they work, what goes into sizing them properly and the top benefits of choosing a gas-powered water heater.

How Gas Water Heaters Work

Water enters the heater from the bottom of the tank. There, a pilot light or electronic ignition ignites a gas burner and heats the water to the desired temperature (usually between 120 and 140 degrees). Combustion gases form as a result of burning the natural gas, and they are vented out through a flue. Maintenance is important to ensure none of these gases, including carbon monoxide, leak into the indoor air.

The two main gas water heater vent types are power vented and atmospheric vented.

Sizing a Gas Water Heater

Using the water heater’s first hour rating and your home’s peak hour demand, you can calculate the water heater capacity you need. The most common sizes range from 40 to 80 gallons. Instead of going through complicated calculations, simply rely on a heating and cooling contractor to help you size your new water heater correctly.

Benefits of Gas Water Heaters

Gas water heaters:

  • Can help lower energy bills: While a gas water heater may cost a little extra to purchase than an electric model, natural gas rates are typically much lower than electricity. This allows you to heat your water for less and pays you back for the upfront investment.

 

  • Are reliable: Natural gas water heaters are not affected by electrical power outages. This means you can still enjoy hot water from the tap until power is restored. Natural gas outages are rare because the system is located underground.

 

  • Have good recovery time: You can expect the water to heat up faster when you have a gas water heater. This is beneficial when you need to perform several hot-water activities in a row, such as family members taking showers back to back.

 

  • Are clean: Natural gas is a much cleaner fuel than electricity, which is most commonly generated by burning coal. Because of this, you can contribute fewer carbon emissions to the atmosphere when you choose a gas water heater.
