Water Heaters: Installation, Repair and Maintenance2019-01-07T16:55:52+00:00

Many homeowners don’t realize how much they rely on their water heaters until something goes wrong.

The first day you can’t take a hot shower, or notice sediment in your sink, your household goes into absolute chaos.

At TwinTech, we’re experts in repairing, servicing and installing all types of water heaters in Northern Virginia. We’re family owned and have been helping homeowners like you for 30+ years.

Did you know that as much as 25% of your monthly gas bill can be attributed to your water heater? That’s serious money and we want to reduce your monthly expenses.

That’s why we take the time to understand your needs and budget, so that we can pair you with the perfect water heater.

We specialize in:

Gas water heaters: Standard gas water heaters are, on average, 72% efficient. We specialize in installing and servicing AO Smith and State brand water heaters. These two brands offer 90% to 96% efficiency with select models.

Electric water heaters: Electric water heaters are generally more expensive to operate, but offer 100% efficiency. We also recommend AO Smith or State brand units to our customers.

You may be wondering about tankless water heaters. We do not recommend this type of water heater for our clients. Considering that they can reduce your water pressure, increase your energy bills because they require larger gas output and increase your maintenance costs, the pros don’t outweigh the cons.

We’ve created a quick comparison chart with some relative data to help you see the major differences in the three types of water heaters.

AO Smith Vertex Gas Water Heater Electric Water Heater Tankless Water Heater
Efficiency 90% – 96% 100% Variable
Recovery Rate Fast Slow Fastest
Water Flow High High Low
Relative Cost of Unit High Medium High
Servicing Schedule 6-Month Drain 6-Month Drain Annual Acid Flush
Cost of Servicing Low Low High

Proper installation and servicing of your water heater will save you money in energy costs and avoid the hassle and discomfort of not having clean, reliable hot water in your home.
