Tankless Water Heaters in Canal Winchester, OH

Tankless water heaters, also known as demand-type or instantaneous water heaters, provide hot water only as it is needed. This means you will never run out of hot water—and you’ll likely save money on your energy bill by using less fuel than a storage tank heater. With a tankless system, how much energy you use depends on the number of people who need hot water at any given time and how long they need it for.

The amount of energy required to heat water depends on its starting temperature (the colder, the better), type of heating element, and how long it takes to reach maximum temperature. For example, gas-fired tankless units typically have higher initial startup costs than electric models but release fewer carbon emissions into the air because they burn cleaner fuel sources like propane or natural gas instead of electricity that comes from coal-fired power plants (which are some of the dirtiest forms).

Electric Water Heaters in Canal Winchester, OH

Electric water heaters are a great choice for Canal Winchester, OH residents who are looking to make their homes more efficient. Electric water heaters use less energy than natural gas or propane models, and they can be installed in almost any location within your home.

You might be wondering how exactly an electric water heater works. Well, the short answer is that it heats up using electricity! The longer answer involves replacing certain parts of your current setup with electrical components that create a magnetic field around the tank itself. This field is what actually heats up the water inside of it, meaning that no matter where you install this type of system (as long as it has access to electricity), it will work just fine!

Gas Water Heaters in Canal Winchester, OH

We also offer gas water heaters, with a variety of models available to suit your needs. If you have a natural gas supply for your heating system or oven, this might be a good choice for you. The main determining factor in deciding on which gas water to choose is the size you need.

Larger units also require more energy to heat up, but of course, supply more water. A smaller gas water heater takes less fuel, but you’ll run out of hot water more quickly and have to wait for a new tankful to heat up.

Water Softener Installation & Repair Services in Canal Winchester, OH

Is your water hard or needing treatment to remove harsh minerals? Whether you’re looking to install a water softener in your home or business in the Greater Dayton Ohio area or have your pre-existing water softener looked at by an expert, Canal Winchester Plumbing & Drain has you covered.

Water softeners are directly connected to residential and commercial plumbing systems and major appliances to work together in a seamless way. Using a process known as ion exchange, water softeners extract excess minerals (like calcium and magnesium) from the water supply and this softens otherwise hard water, prevents rust and calcium buildup as well as other problems, which are harsh on pipes, water heaters and other appliances. Water softeners make cleaning the house easier and make the house smell better often.

Frequently Asked Water Heater & Softener Questions

At Canal Winchester Plumbing & Drain, we’re dedicated to finding a solution for our customers so they can live in comfort. If you have any questions, give us a call at (614) 490-7531.

How long should a water heater last?

Our residential water heaters would last a lifetime; however, that isn’t the case in the real world. On average, a typical water heater should last anywhere from 6 to 13 years. Keep in mind that the longevity of your water heater depends on the care and maintenance performed. Our experts suggest having a scheduled annual draining and flushing.

What size water heater do I need?

There are a few things to consider when deciding what size of water heater you should purchase for your home. First, how many people are in your home. According to Energy.gov, a small 50-60 gallon water heater will be sufficient for up to 2-3 people. A medium-sized 60-80 gallon water heater will be big enough for 3-4 people. If you have more than 4 people in your home, you need to invest in a large water heater that stores more than 80 gallons of water. Next, it depends on your hot water usage. To determine this, think about if you use 3 or more hot water appliances in a short amount of time. If so, you may want to invest in a larger water heater despite the number of people in your home. Lastly, to find the perfect sized water heater for your home, figure out your home’s First Hour Rating (FHR). This number relates to the total number of gallons your hot water tank can provide throughout your home in an hour. You can find this number on a manufacturer’s website, or you can call Five Star Dayon Plumbing for assistance.

What is hard water?

When water is referred to as ‘hard’, it contains more minerals than plain water. These are primarily the minerals calcium and magnesium—the degree of hardness of the water increases, when more calcium and magnesium dissolve. Magnesium and calcium are positively charged ions. Because of their presence, other positively charged ions will dissolve less easily in hard water than in water that does not contain calcium and magnesium. This is the cause of the fact that soap doesn’t really dissolve in hard water.
