Tankless Water Heaters Are Long Term Investments

Monday, August 31st, 2020

technician-in-doorIf you’re the type of person that solely looks at a price tag before deciding whether or not to invest in something, then we totally understand that. However, you are probably winding up with a whole lot of short-term investments if this is the way you work. Why? Because sometimes investing some extra money up front really does pay off in the long run. This is definitely the case with tankless water heaters in Corona, CA.

Even the most preliminary research will show that tankless water heaters are considerably more expensive than tank water heaters are. If that’s all you’re looking at, though, you’re missing the big picture. Because tankless water heaters have some serious benefits to offer. Benefits, we’d say, that are well worth the asking price! So read on, think about how long you’re going to be in your home, and let us know if you’re ready to make a long term water heater investment.

What Standby Energy Loss Means for Tank Water Heaters

Monday, March 16th, 2020

sunny-plumberIt is very easy to take hot water in your home for granted, and this is very unfortunate. You have to remember that you use hot water for many different tasks and chores around your home. Washing the dishes, doing the laundry,  your hot shower to wake you up in the morning—hot water, one and all! And okay, maybe you don’t take the availability of hot water for granted. But are you taking its price for granted?

No, we don’t mean you’re undervaluing the amount that you pay for hot water. Just that you may be used to paying a certain amount while not realizing that it may be more than you should be paying. Take into account standby energy loss, for instance. This can really reduce the overall energy efficiency of your tank water heater in Corona, CA—and you may not even know what that phrase means! We’ll take a look at standby energy loss today, and ways in which to curtail it.

Why Stick with a Tank Water Heater?

Monday, July 8th, 2019

sunny-plumbersIf you think that all water heaters are created equal, think again! Sure, you may only be familiar with the old tank style water heater, but there are also tankless models that are well worth homeowners’ consideration. In fact, these tankless models offer incredible energy efficiency! So, just go with a tankless system then, right?

Well, not so fast.

The fact of the matter is that there is no single type of water heater that’s right for everyone. If there were, there’d only be one type of water heater to choose from, right? And while improved energy efficiency may sound like the obvious choice, there are also some areas where tank water heaters have the upper hand. Ultimately, determining which water heater in Corona, CA, is right for you can prove to be quite tricky. Fortunately, that’s where our Sunny Plumbers come in. Read on to learn more about why sticking with a tank water heater is a perfectly reasonable choice.

Monday, May 14th, 2018

sunny-plumbersThere are a lot of plumbing fixtures and appliances that you are very familiar with. Your toilet, bathtub, sinks, dishwasher, etc. Your water heater probably does not get the same amount of thought as these fixtures and appliances do, because you are not really interacting with it directly every day, as you do with these others.
