When people think about energy efficiency in their homes, they often think about their heating and air conditioning. But did you know that heating water can account for up to 20 percent of a home’s energy use?
It’s true! And unlike many other energy-intensive activities in your home, you can’t just go without hot water. It’s necessary for showering, washing your hands, cooking, scrubbing your pots and pans and cleaning your clothing. And when it suddenly goes away, you notice quickly. That’s true when the hot water runs out while you’re shampooing your hair, and it’s also true when your old water heater suddenly dies in you.
Happily, LG Jordan Oil Co. sells, installs and services top-of-the-line water heaters from industry-leading companies like Rinnai. If your North Carolina home is dealing with a past-its-prime water heater, we’re here to help!
Nothing lasts forever, and that, unfortunately, includes water heaters. Generally, a traditional tank water heater will last around 8 to 12 years. It’s essential, however, to pay attention to your unit’s performance and look for the warning signs that it might fail:
These could indicate that your unit needs a little maintenance, which our skilled technicians can gladly handle. In other cases, you could need a replacement, which we can help find and install.
In both cases, it’s vital that you contact LG Jordan. Being proactive in replacing your struggling water heater is a much better solution than waiting until you’re suddenly without hot water.
There’s a calculus to determining which water heater is suitable for a customer’s home. Our team will consider such factors as:
We can use these considerations and others to figure out your peak hot water usage, then choose the right water heater to match that needs. You can choose from a range of heating oil or propane-fired models, both traditional or tankless.
We’ll install your new water heater promptly and with minimal disruption to your daily life. We’ll also dispose of the old unit.
You may not think of servicing your water heater as often as you think about your boiler or furnace. But considering how crucial hot water is to your daily life and how much it contributes to your energy expenses, it’s wise to have maintenance performed regularly. Our team of expert technicians keeps your water heater functioning properly and extends its lifespan.
More and more Tar Heel State households are making the leap to a propane tankless water heater from Rinnai. Tankless water heaters are a little more expensive to install but pay for themselves quickly with incredible energy savings.
Tankless systems are on-demand—they only heat water when you need it. Whenever you open a hot water tap, your tankless heater’s sensor ignites an extra-hot propane flame to heat water for you. Once the tap is closed, the sensor shuts off the flame. This system eliminates standby losses that occur in storage tank units that reheat unused water over and over again.
And tankless water heaters provide a lot of hot water for your energy dollar! You won’t have to choose between washing laundry or taking a shower anymore. And the average home saves $150 per year in fuel expenses after going tankless.
