Water Heater Repair and Installation in Utah
Water Heaters manufactured after April 16, 2015 will have to comply
with new standards.
What does that mean to you? You Should Replace Your Older Water Heater Now!
Water heaters costs will rise in the spring of 2015.
If your water heater is between 8 and 11 years old it will be in your best interest to replace it before it fails (leaks) in order to avoid very steep price increases.
Government regulation changes have been designed to increase the energy efficiency of domestic water heaters. Water heaters manufactured after April 16, 2015 must conform to the new energy efficiency standards.
How does this affect you?
The physical dimensions of water heaters will change. New water heaters may not fit in your present water heater location. You may no longer be able to use standard venting water heaters in your home. Major costly changes may be required to facilitate the installation of new water heaters. Water heater costs may double; be proactive and save money now!
Why is size of water heaters changing?
In water heaters that meet the new technologies, tanks are likely to be larger because of additional insulation, and more insulation may be required for piping and fittings. A new water heater may not fit in the same space as the old one. Installation costs may rise as it could take two people to handle a larger tank. Water heaters with electronic controls will require additional skills and equipment for installation.
Current water heater models will be available only while supplies last. CALL TODAY 801-850-1289.
The average water heater lasts between 8-11 years. If your water heater is at or near its useful life cycle, consider replacement NOW before the price increases steeply and new installation designs result in additional costs.
Replace your water heater while exact replacements are available.

Typical water heaters (except for tankless systems) usually have a round, glass-lined tank that is heated from the bottom. Fuel types used to heat the water tank are either natural gas, propane gas or electricity. While some manufacturer warranties will cover more, many usually have a warranty that covers only the tank and not parts or labor.
Deciding on the right water heater for your home is critical to efficient operation. Your peak demand hour (the busiest hot water time of the day) is key to determining this. Other things to consider are number of bathrooms, garden tubs versus normal tubs, dishwashers, type of washing machine and how much these appliances are used.
If you purchase a water heater that is too small, your family deals with a shortage of hot water during peak times. A water tank too large simply wastes money by constantly heating more water than is needed. Additionally, if your water heater is old it might not be very efficient in heating, which further affects your utility bills.
