Replacing water heaters can be a bit overwhelming; there are so many different specifications and styles that suit one type of living situation more than another. Frank Niesen Company is a family-owned and operated company that specializes in plumbing, electrical work, heating and cooling repair, and more. The family has been providing the people of Cincinnati with their exceptional services since 1884, and water heater installation is one of their many areas of expertise.

Here are a few of the factors you should consider when planning water heater installation or replacement:

  • Fitting Your Unique Needs: Each type of water heater has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it's important to do some research beforehand and figure out what's right for you. Tankless water heaters, for instance, provide hot water on demand but tend to have a limited rate of flow. Storage water heaters are still the most popular in the United States, and they vary in size and in what kind of fuel they use.
  • Maximizing Efficiency: If your decision is simply choosing the most energy-efficient option, tankless water heaters and heat pump water heaters certainly fit the bill. They take up less space and eliminate nearly all standby losses. However, the up-front costs, including the water heater installation itself, tend to be much higher than conventional storage tanks.

  • Longevity & Ease of Maintenance: You will also want to take longevity into consideration, which involves looking into the insulation rating, extras such as flush kits or water softeners, ease of access for maintenance, and more.
