Water Heater Repair
Even well-maintained water heaters can experience problems, especially if the appliance is nearing the end of its lifespan. If your water heater displays any of the following symptoms, you’ll need to call a Neighborhood technician for a water heater repair.
- No hot water at all
- Water is not hot enough or too hot
- Hot water comes out rusty or dirty
- Pipes hiss or screech when hot water is in use

Water Heater Replacement
Sometimes, the damage to your water heater is severe enough that the best course of action is a complete water heater replacement. This might sound like a scary and expensive endeavor, but it will actually end up saving you money in the long run! Old water heaters require frequent repairs that don’t restore your appliance to full efficiency. A water heater replacement will reduce your energy bills due to new and advanced energy-efficient technology, conserve water in your home, and better regulate the temperature of your water. Our experienced technicians can install both standard storage water heaters and tankless water heaters.
Standard Storage Water Heaters
The most common water heater installation amongst our clients is a standard storage water heater. Most American homes own a traditional water heater, which has advanced in leaps and bounds since they were first invented. Conventional water heaters draw enough water from the mainline to fill up the tank (available from 20-120 gallons) and continuously heat it up, so the household never runs out of hot water. The hot water is distributed throughout the house by a system of pipes.
Standard storage water heaters have a cheaper initial cost than tankless water heaters, but can last up to 15 years if they are well-maintained. The size of the water heater is the most important aspect of a water heater installation because a water heater tank that is too small will not provide enough hot water, whereas a unit that is too large will end up wasting money. Contact Neighborhood today if you’re interested in an electric or gas standard storage water heater installation.
Tankless Water Heaters
Water heaters of the tankless variety are becoming more and more popular because of their high performance and energy-efficient machinery. Tankless water heaters heat water as needed. Whenever you or your family are in need of hot water, your tankless water heater will draw water from the mainline and heat it for as long as you need it. Once your hot water usage stops, the tankless water heater will also stop.
This appliance is the most energy-efficient water heater available because it doesn’t allow for a continuous heating cycle like traditional water heaters, saving you money on your monthly energy bills. Although they have a higher initial cost, their lifespan is almost double that of a standard water heater at 20-25 years. If you believe tankless water heaters to be the best choice for your home, contact us today to get started with a consultation.
