We are The Authorized Warranty Dealers for:
A.O Smith, State, Reliance, American, Whirlpool,Enviro-Temp and Premier Plus Water Heaters.
Our preferred brand for traditional water heater installation is A.O Smith Water Heaters and State WaterHeaters. Watch out for FVIR heaters that have filter/screening on the air inlets, as maintenance is required regularly otherwise the warranty may be void. Life expectancy for a gas tank style water heater is between 8-14 years in our area, but really depends on water quality, and maintenance.
Next are the power vent water heaters. These state-of-the-art water heater products have been installed more recently and are even more energy efficient. They provide a long-lasting supply of hot water during the times when everyone in your home needs it the most. The 90% and 96% efficient AO Smith Vertex Models qualify for Federal Tax Rebates totaling 30% of the installed price, up to $1500. With rebates these heaters are now affordable, and outperform all other power vented water heaters. In fact, the AO Smith Vertex exceeds the output of most 75 gallon heaters, with just a 50 gallon tank.
