Residential Water Heater Options
Gas fueled water heaters are by far the most common type of tank water heater in the U.S. today. Ranging in size from 20 to 80 gallons and fueled by electricity, natural gas, propane, or oil. Storage water heaters transfer heat from a burner or coil to water in an insulated tank. Because heat is lost through the flue (except in electric models) and through the walls of the storage tank, energy is consumed even when water is not being consumed.
Water heaters are generally located far away from fixtures like showers and faucets. A lot of water and energy is wasted before the hot water arrives at the spout. Hot water circulation systems prevent this loss by using small motors to bring hot water to the source. They can drastically cut down heating costs and have other benefits too, like reducing wear on your plumbing system.

for your old water heater
I am a young, single female and the service I received from the owner Mark was unbeatable. So much so that I created a yelp account just to leave this review! I had an emergency leak and was having a panic attack because no one in town could get to my property for a couple of hours until I called Plumbing M.D. and Mark came out himself within 30 min. He fixed the problem and was EXTREMELY helpful explaining and trying to teach me about my water heater. His prices are reasonable and he even came back out a week later to help me turn my water heater back on when I accidentally turned it off! Great service and no sales pressure which is super important to me as someone who would fall for anything! A++ service and will always recommend.

The crew did a great job, everything was cleaned up and put back nearly as it was before they started, Their bid was $400 less than the next lowest. They know what they are doing with this type of project.

The owner was courteous and discussed the water demand issues prior to deciding that it would be a better option to downsize from an 85 gallon to a 50 gallon unit. The only point missed was whether I was on natural gas or propane. A last minute call on the morning of the install allowed the installer to pick up the necessary conversion kit to be able to adapt to the more dense propane. The sweat solder joints on the copper pipe were carefully done and thoroughly inspected. Installation of insulation and vent was superior. The job site was left clean after completion of the install.
