Is Your Heater of the Right Size?

However, if unforeseen circumstances have left you with the need for a heating replacement, or if you are just planning on a new heater installation once the warm weather comes around again, you are wise to consider your options carefully. Even if you do invest in a heater that suits your user preferences and is well-manufactured, though, it may still fail to satisfy your needs.

Is the Tank Water Heater Obsolete?

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Some homeowners mistakenly believe that new technologies mean that those preceding them are automatically obsolete. This could not be further from the truth, though. Take the tank water heater, for instance. While it is true that tankless systems, a newer technology, have many benefits to offer, this does not mean that tank systems are no longer worthy of consideration. In many instances, in fact, a tank water heater in Springfield, VT may be the ideal option. We carry a number of great electric tank water heaters from Bradford White, as well as indirect water heaters that use an existing boiler in their operation. To learn more about available options, give the water heater professionals here at HB Energy Solutions a call.
