Our People Deliver The Difference


As the name suggests, water heaters provide you with warm baths, hot showers, working dishwashers, and more. Here at Waldrop Plumbing – Heating — Air, we’ve worked on all water heater types and models, and we’ve come to appreciate just what an innovative lifesaver the electric water heater is. Read on to learn more about the unique benefits of electric water heating in your Upstate South Carolina home or business.

You can also call us at (864) 536-0887 today or contact us online to speak with an expert plumber.

Benefits Of Electric Water Heaters

  1. Lowest upfront costs. An electric water heater is likely to be your most affordable option upfront when it comes to pricing.
  2. No risk of a gas leak. Both gas and electric water heaters are very safe, but the electric option takes out the hazardous variable of gas altogether, lowering your overall risk.
  3. Hot water anywhere. Unlike gas water heaters, which need regular propane deliveries or have to be hooked up to a public gas line, you can run electric water heaters from almost anywhere. If you have electric light – chances are you can run an electric water heater.
  4. Good energy efficiency. To best compare efficiencies of various water heaters, Waldrop plumbers analyze their energy factors (EF). Between gas and electric water heaters, electric water heaters win from an efficiency perspective. Gas water heaters typically have an EF (energy factor) between 0.5 to 0.7, while electric water heaters can have a higher EF (higher means more efficient) than 0.9.

Electric water heater repair – The average service life of an electric water heater is between 10 to 15 years.

Electric water heater maintenance – While today’s modern water heaters are designed to be a lot more hands-off than older models, preventative tune-ups are necessary to keep your electric water heater running safely and efficiently.

Electric Water Heater FAQs

With good maintenance and care, about 10 to 15 years.

Generally, electric water heaters are pretty low maintenance, but just a few minutes of preventative maintenance per year is highly efficient. Maintenance can save you hundreds in repair costs (and an icy shower marathon after a critical failure.)

Depending on the type and model, it will take between an hour to an hour and 20 minutes.
