Water Heaters

Hot water in your Freeland home can be a costly proposition. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), water heating accounts for 20 percent of your home’s energy use.

Purchasing the right water heater—and keeping it maintained—can make a significant difference in your energy bills. At Answer Heating & Cooling, we always try to recommend the best heating, cooling, and plumbing products and services for your Michigan home. We believe saving money and staying comfortable should always go hand in hand.

That includes your water heater!

Lower Your Water Heating Bills

Upgrading to a high-efficiency water heater offers the best way to save money without compromising comfort. A new water heater minimizes the risk of a costly repair—and the possibility of a leak.

Here are a few other money-saving tips to consider:

  • Many water heater temperatures can be set as high as 140 degrees. Lowering your water heater to 120 degrees will save you money and provide you with all the hot water you need.
  • A conventional water heater constantly heats water—even when you’re sleeping or away from your Freeland home. That drives up your cost. Buy a water heater timer that’s easy to install and set it to the times you shower and do laundry and dishes.
  • Insulate exposed pipes to minimize heat loss—especially if you live in an older home.

Choosing a Water Heater

Choosing the right model and size for your household needs can make a big difference in your comfort and budget. Our team at Answer Heating & Cooling will work with you to ensure you pick the best system for your home.

Here are five of the more common water heaters you will find in homes:

  1. Conventional storage tank water heaters remain the most common models in Michigan and other parts of the country. It’s easy to see why: these systems are relatively inexpensive, easy to install, and can operate reliably for many years.
  2. Tankless water heaters supply water on demand. When you turn on the faucet, cold water runs through heated coils to provide an endless hot water supply. These systems cost more upfront than storage tank water heaters but operate more efficiently since they only heat water when you need it.
  3. Heat pump water heaters—also known as hybrid systems—are great options if you live in a warmer climate. A heat pump water heater uses substantially less energy than a conventional tank. But to enjoy the best results from these models, you need to live in a location where the temperature remains above 40 degrees year-round.
  4. Condensing water heaters use your boiler or furnace as a heating source. These systems capture additional heat from flue gases that would otherwise escape through your chimney. A condensing water heater will save you significant money if you live in a household that runs on natural gas.
  5. Solar power water heaters are becoming a popular option for many households in the southwest part of the country. These systems are true energy savers—but they are dependent on sunlight.

Whatever choice you make, you can count on Answer Heating & Cooling to install it correctly and help maintain it so that you enjoy the most value from your investment. Call us today for a free consultation.

“Bob G. and Alex came to the house do some repair work on my tankless water heater, which provides the hot water for domestic use as well as for heating the house and which has been operating with maddening unreliability over the past two winters. The two technicians arrived on time, explained exactly the repairs they were going to make, worked quietly and efficiently, and when they has finished, showed me what they had done. They asked when they started and when they finished if I had any questions and answered the few I had completely and intelligibly to the layperson I am. One thing that struck me was how polite and respectful they were, which I very much appreciated. In sum, I am completely satisfied with the job Bob and Alex did. And in general I am completely satisfied with the service Answer Heating and Cooling had provided on more than one occasion–even if I am not always satisfied with the operation of my touchy tankless water heater.”

“I have had all of my heating and cooling work done with Answer Heating & Cooling for the last 15+ years. They have done a great job for me since I switched to them so I stick with what works. When my wife and I noticed that our water heater was not working properly last week, we were not overly concerned. Yesterday we were met with cold water, no matter how long we ran the hot water. Now we were concerned. I called Answer this morning and spoke with Jim. I could not believe my luck when he told me that he could have somebody out today. Jim then had an appointment set up for 12:30 today to replace our old water heater. Bob, the technician, shows up and immediately starts in on replacing the water heater. I was surprised at how quickly he was able to remove the old one and install the new one. The price on the new water heater, with installation, was actually less than what I expected. Pleasant surprise! Bob was very courteous and answered whatever questions I had. Thanks Bob!!!”

- Jeffrey S.
