Water Heater Replacement & Repair in Billings, Montana
One of the most relied on parts of your plumbing system is your water heater, because no one wants to wake up to a cold shower! However, a cold shower is not the only indicator that your water heater needs some attention. If your water appears rusty or odorous, you hear rumbling, popping or whining noises, or you experience water leakage around the base of your water heater, you know it’s time to call your friends at Benjamin Franklin®. Our plumbing expert will conduct a thorough examination and provide you with an explanation of the issue and your repair options. If the most cost-efficient solution is to replace your equipment, our technicians will walk you through the all features on the various types of water heaters we offer so you can rest assured knowing you made the decision that’s right for you. Options include:
- Conventional tank water heaters are powered by either electricity or natural gas and range from 20 to 100 gallon capacities.
- Solar water heaters harness the power of the sun essentially heating your water for free, making solar water heaters the most energy-efficient, greener option in some parts of the country. The EPA estimates that 14-18 percent of the average household’s energy bill is directly correlated to water heating; therefore installing a solar water heater could result in big savings.
- Tankless water heaters are another economical, eco-friendly option that is not dependent on where you live. Tankless water heaters are guaranteed to conserve energy and save you money by heating the water directly only when you need it. Whereas traditional tank heaters have to reheat the water in the tank as it cools off between uses making it very energy inefficient. Traditional tank heaters also promote water waste: think about how much water runs down the drain as you wait for the shower to heat up. The Benjamin Franklin GoHot® tankless water heater will provide your home with an endless supply of hot water through a piece of equipment the size of a briefcase.
Regardless of the type you choose, our experienced plumbers will remove your old unit, professional install your new water heater and clean up when they’re finished leaving it as if they were never there.
