Water Heater Repair or Replacement
The water heater is among the most important appliances and losing hot water is stressful and disruptive to your normal routine. When the water heater shows signs of a problem, it may need to be repaired or replaced. Call for water heater service when you notice indications that the unit may not be working right to get your hot water restored fast.
Your water heater needs attention when it:
- Won’t heat the water at all
- Doesn’t produce sufficient hot water
- The water is lukewarm or the temperature is not consistent
- Produces hot water with a bad odor or taste
- Has a pilot light issue
When making decisions about repair vs. replacement, it is important to consider the age, overall condition of the water heater, and the cost of repair compared with the cost of replacement. For example, replacement may be the better long-term solution for a water heater that is getting close to the end of its life that needs an expensive repair. Your qualified local plumbers will help you make the best decision for your property.
Energy-Efficient Tank & Tankless Water Heaters
Upgrading your water heater can solve your hot water problems and improve energy efficiency for lower utility costs. The two main options are traditional tank and tankless water heaters in Boerne. Tank water heaters are the most common and offer reliable hot water at an affordable price. The size of the tank is important for providing enough hot water to meet your demand, and sizes range from 20 to 80 gallons for residential water heaters.
Tankless water heaters don’t have a storage tank to hold the heated water. They heat water instantly with heating elements or gas burners, depending on whether you have an electric or gas water heater. Tankless water heaters provide a continuous supply of hot water, but you still need to choose one that is large enough to meet your needs. Tankless models are more expensive to install but cost less to run and last longer than traditional models.

Tank Water Heaters
Residential tank water heaters typically store between 20 and 80 gallons of hot water throughout, usually at the factory setting of 120°F. The temperature can be adjusted up or down by a control on the unit. Tank water heaters are typically located in the garage, basement, or attic.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters provide the comfort and convenience of having a continuous supply of hot water. Gas models are great as a hot water solution for homes with busy families, homes with luxury bathrooms, and vacation homes.
