Gas Tank Water Heaters in San Diego County, CA

Carini can replace your gas tank-type water heater with a more eco-friendly unit. Power vent models offer increased efficiency and are a great alternative to outdated atmospheric vent models.

Hybrid Water Heaters Feature Heat Pump Technology

Because they feature cutting-edge heat pump technology, hybrid water heaters are substantially more energy-efficient than conventional tank-type water heaters. This technology saves both money and energy. If everyone who purchased and installed a conventional water heater last year had chosen a hybrid model instead, carbon monoxide emissions would have seen a 20 million pound reduction. That’s the equivalent of taking 1.6 million cars off of the street!

Gas Tankless Water Heaters

Gas tankless water heaters use natural gas or propane and are typically between 80 and 95 percent efficient based on the model. Gas tankless water heaters are often much more efficient than conventional tank-type water heaters and have twice the service life. Our plumbing experts are knowledgeable about the benefits of all types of water heaters and will guide you through every step of the decision-making process.

Electric Tankless Water Heaters

Electric tankless water heaters tend to be 98 percent efficient and above, which means you’ll get the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re helping the environment. These units are known to have a long service life and can save you money and energy.

How to Know When to Replace a Water Heater

If your water heater tank is leaking, there’s a good chance it’s time for a replacement. Is there a slow drip underneath the unit, with or without a stream of rusty-colored water? These signs mean the metal tank has rusted through and is beyond repair.

The most common types of water heaters use gas or electricity. The useful life of most electric hot water heating systems is 10-15 years. Water heater technology has changed dramatically over the last decade, with a variety of enhancements that reduce energy usage, so a new system could help pay for itself by saving energy costs over a short number of years. There are even upgrade accessories that can be added to a system to make it more energy-efficient – as opposed to purchasing a whole new system.

Hot Water Recirculating Pumps

Whole-house, under-the-sink, and point-of-use recirculating pumps can bring energy savings and efficiencies to the hot water heater that you have installed. These pumps allow home and business owners to get truly hot water on demand.

How Much Energy Do Water Heaters Use in the Average Home?

Research from the Department of Energy indicates the average U.S. home uses 64 gallons of hot water each day. Water heating can be responsible for 14 to 18 percent of your home’s energy bill, according to Plumbers Magazine.

After heating and air conditioning systems, water heaters are second in energy usage. Best Plumbers says that “Gas-powered water heaters are three to four times less expensive to operate than electric models.”
