How to Choose Your New Water Heater: Gas vs. Electric
When purchasing a new water heater, the first decision you will need to make is the type of fuel source you prefer to heat your water. The main options are gas and electric. The availability of fuel, price, efficiency, and personal preferences should be considered when selecting the best model. There are advantages to each type of system.
Gas water heaters are popular because they:
- Quickly and efficiently heat water
- Precisely control the temperature
- Consistently provide a source of hot water
- Continually supply hot water even when the power is out
Electric water heaters are beneficial because they offer:
- Low upfront costs
- Improved efficiency
- Extremely safe operation
Our Northern Virginia plumbers are skilled at installations and replacement to maximize performance and energy efficiency.
If you want to replace your water heater with a more reliable source of hot water and a more environmentally friendly unit, we can explain the available options and provide a free estimate.
Keeping Your Water Heater Well-Maintained
Water heaters are easy to forget about until they stop working. Still, like most of your home’s comfort systems, a water heater can benefit from regular maintenance to extend its life span and make sure it is working as efficiently as it can. HVAC & Plumbing Unlimited offers water heater maintenance services to check the system inside and out and ensure it is working properly. During this appointment, we will also drain and flush the tank to remove built-up sediment. We recommend having a maintenance check every year.

Water Heater Service FAQs
Should I replace my water heater or schedule water heater repair?
Deciding between replacement and repair depends on the age of the water heater and the extent of the repair. If your water heater is close to the end of its life span, and if the repair is a high-cost repair, replacement may be the better solution.
What is the most common problem water heaters have?
Producing too little hot water, or not enough hot water for the home’s demands, is one of the most common problems people call us about. This can be because of a setting on the water heater, having a heater that’s too small for the home, or problems that require repair. The best way to troubleshoot the issue is to talk to a qualified professional.
Are gas or electric water heaters more affordable to run?
The answer to this depends on your local utility costs, but in general, most gas water heaters are more cost-effective than electric tank-style water heaters. However, they cost more initially to install.
