Tank Water Heaters & Service in Joliet, IL
The standard idea that most people have of a residential water heater is a large hot water tank that stores a supply of heated water that’s ready for use. The storage tank water heater no longer has the field to itself, as new technology has appeared. But the tank water heater is still a competitive choice, and many homes continue to enjoy their convenience, immediate delivery of hot water, and low initial installation costs.

We install and provide other services for storage tank water heaters in Joliet, IL and the surrounding areas. Our technicians are skilled and ready to come to your assistance any time of the day or night. We’re the company you can trust!
Should You Install a Gas or Electric Tank Water Heater?
The two main energy sources used for tank waters heaters are natural gas and electricity. An electric tank water heater uses heating elements within the tank to provide heat, while a gas water heater transfers heat from gas burners through a heat exchanger on the bottom of the tank. You’ll probably want to have a gas water heater if your home has access to a natural gas line, since natural gas is a less expensive energy source than electricity. But an electric water heater is a flexible and viable choice for homes without natural gas, or for people concerned about safety issues from gas leaks.
You also have the option for an indirect water heater, which uses a home’s furnace or boiler to provide heat for a fluid that moves through a heat exchanger in the water heater’s tank. This offers a less expensive method for supply hot water, but they will not work with every home’s HVAC system. Talk to your installers to see if an indirect water heater could work to your benefit.
Does Your Tank Water Heater Need Repairs?
A well–installed tank water heater from a trusted manufacturer should be able to last 15 years or more. But you’ll need to make sure that you see to any repair needs as soon as they crop up, or the system lifespan will be severely shortened. When water volume drops, corrosion appears on the tank, or you hear rumbling sounds from the heater, call our technicians for the help you’ll need to get the water heater working once more.
The best way to ensure that your tank water heater enjoys the longest service life possible, while staying at the highest level of energy efficiency, is to arrange for routine maintenance each year. Talk to your repair professionals about arranging for this service.
