In parts of the world, hot water is still a luxury. But here in the United States, we consider our hot water a necessity for our daily routine.
At Burns & McBride, we offer the best in water heaters. Our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals are here to repair, install, replace, or maintain your water heater for you.
Traditional Water Heaters
If you currently have a traditional tank water heater, or if you simply prefer this type of water heater, we have various options with various fuel choices—gas, electric, and oil-fired.
The newer standard water heaters are much more energy efficient than the energy guzzlers of the past. And since tankless water heaters are not optimal for every home, a newer tank model might be perfect for your lifestyle and needs.
These traditional tank heaters are less expensive to install than tankless heaters, so this may be an appealing factor in your decision-making process if you are considering a new water heater. If you need a new hot water heater, many times our Burns & McBride professionals can utilize your current plumbing and energy arrangement. This saves you both money and time, when this works out.
Additionally, we can usually install your new tank without changing your current energy supply. We will simply connect your new tank to your current setup.

Tankless Water Heaters
The tankless water heater has progressively become more popular over the last decade. If you are looking for a new heater and have not considered a tankless, you may be missing out.
Also referred to as an on-demand water heater, a tankless water heater produces hot water instantly. This provides hot water precisely when you want it. No more waiting for the water to heat.
Where the traditional tank water heater heats and stores the water, repeatedly tapping into its energy source to continually reheat the supply, a tankless simply heats the water at the moment you need it. With no need to store water, tankless water heaters are quite compact and can be installed in areas with limited space.
The tankless heaters utilize natural gas, electric, or oil-fired for heating their water, passing the water over the heating element. As the water travels to you, the element heats the water. The days of waiting for more hot water because both the dishwasher and washing machine are running simultaneously are a thing of the past.
These heaters are also highly energy efficient. Since they only use the energy on demand, instead of heating and reheating the same water over and over, this conserves energy and keeps your energy bill low. Tankless heaters also offer both indoor and outdoor installation options, giving even more flexibility for their usage
