Water Heater Replacement

 When it comes to water heaters, it’s important for you to adhere to routine maintenance practices to ensure the longevity of your system. However, water heaters don’t last forever. Due to age, wear, poor maintenance, and other things, it’s likely that you’ll have to replace your water heater at some point.

With this in mind, call Jim Wilson Plumbing for the replacement. We’ll make an expert recommendation that’s based on your needs and not our bottom line!

Tankless (On-Demand) Water Heater

 Have you thought about switching to a tankless water heater? They can be a great investment! Tankless water heaters are the newest technology in home water heating. As their name suggests, they don’t have a tank, and water is heated on demand, as you need it. A tankless water heater could mean huge savings for your energy and water bills, as it does not have a tank that has to be filled and constantly heated.
Though the initial unit cost and installation cost are more expensive, in the long run, a tankless water heater is built to last much longer than an average water heater, and the energy efficiency will ensure that your unit pays for itself within just a few short years!
