Grand Rapids Water Heater Services

Trusted Water Heater Professionals

The experienced HVAC technicians at Pro-Tech Heating & Cooling know firsthand that a buildup of sediments from the water passing through your water heater can create several problems. Too much sediment restricts the space inside the water heater, causing water shortages and a “rotten egg” smell. If left unchecked, the sediment buildup can eventually damage your water heater beyond repair.

Our professional technicians understand how to prevent water heater system failures. We also offer a wide variety of Grand Rapids water heater services - including installation, maintenance, and repair – that are guaranteed to satisfy your needs. Our family-owned and -operated company only works with the best products from dependable manufacturers, including Bradford White.

Types of Water Heaters

Water heaters are essential household appliances that provide hot water for various daily activities, from showering to washing dishes. There are several types of water heaters available on the market, each with distinct features, energy efficiencies, and installation requirements. Understanding the differences can help you make informed decisions based on your needs, budget, and environmental concerns.

One common type is the storage tank water heater, which heats water in a large tank and stores it until needed. These units can operate on electricity, natural gas, propane, or oil. They are widely used due to their reliability and simplicity. However, they can be less energy efficient than other options due to standby heat losses from the tank.

Tankless water heaters provide hot water only as it is needed, thereby eliminating the need for a storage tank. This design can lead to greater energy efficiencies because it avoids the energy losses associated with storing hot water. Tankless units are usually powered by electricity or gas and are more compact, which can save valuable space in a home. However, they may require significant upfront investment and can have a limited flow rate, meaning they might struggle to supply enough hot water for simultaneous, multiple uses.

Heat pump water heaters are another energy-efficient option. They use electricity not to directly heat water but instead to move heat from the air or ground to the water, which can be three times more energy efficient than traditional electric resistance water heaters. While heat pump water heaters offer significant energy savings, they require a substantial amount of space to operate effectively, and many models are only suited for locations that remain within a certain temperature range year-round. Only units that are specifically designed to run effectively in cold climates should be installed in Michigan due to the state’s frigid winters. 

If you are interested in installing a new water heater, our team at Pro-Tech Heating & Cooling is ready to help. Our Grand Rapids water heater services include comprehensive evaluations of your home or business’s needs and tailored assistance in choosing the best model that balances performance and budget.

Whether you are looking to install a water heater or keep an existing unit working great for years to come, you can count on us to provide superior solutions and support. Call (616) 303-7436 or contact us online to discuss your needs with us.
