Water Heater Giving You A Cool Reception?

Water heaters are often underappreciated appliances. Everyone needs theirs to work well, yet many people do not think much about them until they are no longer working well. Once hot water stops flowing, they start to take notice. At Service Legends we can help install the right water heater for your home, make repairs when necessary, and perform ongoing maintenance throughout the Des Moines, IA area.

If Any of These Five Statements Are True Then it Might Be Time to Replace Your Water Heater

Water heaters do not last forever. If any of these five statements are true, then it might be time to replace your water heater:

  1. Your water heater is more than a decade old
  2. Your water heater is making strange noises such as banging or rumbling
  3. The water that comes out of the tap is rust-colored
  4. You no longer have sufficient hot water
  5. Water is puddling around the unit

Cost to Install A Water Heater

Tips for Buying the Right Hot Water Heater

If you determine that it is time to replace your hot water heater, there are a number of factors you will need to consider. We suggest following these tips:

  • Pick a water heater that has an appropriate FHR (first-hour rating) based on your family’s peak-hour demand for hot water. We can help explain the various FHR options.
  • Deciding on the right fuel type if you have options within your home. Natural gas, propane, and oil water heaters are more affordable to operate compared to electric options.
  • Consider non-traditional options such as heat pump water heaters or tankless water heaters.
  • Choose a water heater with the highest possible energy factor you can afford.

When you work with Service Legends, we can assess your needs and recommend the right size and type of hot water heater for your home. Call us now to get started.

Cost Factors For Water Heater

Model Type

A water heater exists for every home and every budget. That’s good news for our clients, but it also means wading through a lot of variables and different systems! Cost can vary depending on the type of system (tank or tankless), the size of the tank, the type of heating components (electric, natural gas, etc.), and how efficient the system is.

Your Home’s Modifications

State and local codes exist to protect homeowners from water damage, fire hazards, and carbon monoxide poisoning. Any one of these concerns could occur if a water heater isn’t installed properly. If modifications to plumbing or electrical are required, we’ll be transparent about this and let you know how it may impact the total water heater installation cost.

Contractor Experience

The peace of mind that an experienced contractor can bring to the table simply can’t be ignored. In fact, experienced contractors have technicians that are licensed and insured, and you can count on a reputable contractor to return if something goes wrong with our 100% satisfaction guarantee!

Tanks Or No Tanks?

Tank Water Heaters

Traditional tank water heaters heat and store large amounts of water. They’re significantly less expensive but more costly in operation. 

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters instantly heat water on demand, making them much more efficient and they’re space-saving – meaning with no tank, they take up less space than traditional hot water heaters with a tank. 

While tankless water heaters cost more upfront, you’ll enjoy cheaper energy bills in the long run, and they last about twice as long too.
