Benefits Of Water Heaters

Water heaters run on two main sources of power. Electricity and gas. There are pros and cons to each power source, which we outline below:



If you live in an area with access to a natural gas line connected to your home, then a gas water heater is likely your best option. If your home is more remote and not connected to a public gas supply, then an electric water heater may be right for you.

Waldrop’s Gas Heater Services

Water heater repair – The average service life of a gas water heater is between 8 to 12 years. The average service life of an electric water heater is 10 to 15 years. Often, repairs may be more cost-effective than replacements and could extend your water heater’s usefulness. We’re here to help you crunch those numbers and get your water steamy again.

Water heater maintenance – While today’s modern water heaters are designed to need less tinkering than older models, preventative tune-ups are necessary to keep your gas heater running safely and efficiently. Our expert plumbers can inspect and calibrate your water heater in no time.

Water heater installation – No water heater yet? No problem. As long as you’ve got access to a gas line or a power source, we can quickly install your new water heater.

Water heater replacement – If your water heater’s broken (or on its last legs), you’d best call the water heater replacement professionals here at Waldrop if you want to avoid icy showers. We’re open from 6 a.m. to midnight because we understand that breakdowns don’t respect the typical nine-to-five schedule.
