Gas Water Heater Services in Upstate South Carolina

As the name suggests, water heaters give you hot showers, warm baths, sanitary dishwashers, and more. Here at Waldrop Gas – Plumbing – Heating, we’re experts in all water heater types and models, but we’re proponents of gas water heaters. Read on to learn more about the unique benefits of gas 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 Gas Water Heaters

  1. Easy, fast installation is typical. Compared to other water heater options like electric, installing a gas water heater is a snap for the professionals.
  2. Gas water heaters are about one-third the cost of electric water heaters to run. Even if your water heater is running on propane instead of natural gas, this is still going to be cheaper than electric.
  3. Gas water heaters replenish your hot water supply much faster than electric options.
  4. Going tankless (and therefore saving precious space in your home), is more viable for gas water heaters thanks to the rapid recovery rate.

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 you may want to consider an electric water heater.

Waldrop’s Gas Water Heater Services

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

Gas water heater maintenance – While today’s modern water heaters are designed to need less maintenance than older models, preventative tune-ups are necessary to keep your gas water heater running safely and efficiently. Our expert plumbers can inspect, flush, drain, and change out your water heater’s filters.

Gas water heater installation – No water heater yet? No problem. As long as you’ve got access to a gas line or a steady supply of propane, we can install your new water heater quickly in an out-of-the-way place.
Gas water heater replacement – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, they say. But of course…sometimes things break. And unless you want cold showers forever, you’d best call the water heater replacement professionals here at Waldrop. We’re open from 6 a.m. to midnight because we understand that breakdowns don’t respect the typical nine-to-five schedule.

Gas Water Heater FAQs

Depending on the type and model, the cost of a water heater is usually between $1,000 and $3,000.
