Performance Plumbing
Our specialty is water heaters! Traditional or often called tank storage water heaters are water heaters that store water in a tank (usually  40-50 gallons). They heat the water to a predetermined temperature and then maintain that temperature. Water is replaced in the tank as it is used, and then needs to be heated. The incoming water is cold so it naturally goes to the bottom of the tank. Because on gas water heaters the flame is at the bottom the cold water is heated pretty fast and then tends to rise and replace water at the top of the tank. This causes a circulating effect which ensures a uniform temperature throughout the tank. With electric water heaters there are heating elements located at different levels of the tank from top to bottom. The idea of this configuration is to provide a uniform heat source throughout the tank. Because of this design electric water heaters will not have quite the circulation effect that a gas water heater has. The decision on which one to buy will depend on several factors like access to a gas line, access to electricity and where the water heater is going to be placed. Generally gas water heaters work best in areas that might be exposed to cold if there is a loss of electricity because there might be a chance of freezing if the power outage is for a prolonged period. Whether you are replacing an existing water heater or installing a new one, there are several options available to you. At Performance Plumbing, we specialize in water heaters, so our technicians can help answer your questions: Tank or tankless, gas or electric?
