Choosing the Right Water Heater For Your Home

Choosing the Right Water Heater For Your Home

When selecting a new water heater for your home, there are a number of important things to consider. First, you need to ensure that the water heater will provide enough hot water during peak demand. Second, water heaters are rated for efficiency, which is found on the EnergyStar label. And finally, their are very different technologies available to heat water.

Ensure You Install a Sufficiently Sized Unit

If your current water heater struggles to provide enough hot water, there are two options. You can upgrade to a larger tank style water heater, or convert to a newer, tankless style water heater.

Tankless or Conventional Water Heater?

While tank water heaters have the lowest initial purchase price, they typically have a shorter lifespan and use more energy by having to keep a large volume of water hot continuously. Installing a water heater blanket can reduce heat loss and lower energy use.

Tankless water heaters heat water only when it's needed, meaning less energy is used and there is a continuous supply of hot water. While they are more expensive to install, they typically last more than 20+ years and can save up to 34 percent on energy costs.

Have questions about hot water heaters? Call Ostrom Plumbing and Electric, our hot water experts can answer all your questions.

 
Home Electrical Safety Tips For Fall

Electrical Safety Tips For Fall

As colder weather approaches and we spend more time in our homes, now is a good time to ensure that your home's electrical system is safe and fully functioning. Here are some electrical safety tips for fall:

1. Check outlets for loose plugs, which can overheat and cause a fire.
2. Test ground fault circuits (GFC) outlets to ensure they reset properly when pressing the test button.
3. If there are young children in the house, make sure unused outlets have safety covers installed.
5. If you are frequently reseting circuit breakers, call an electrician to inspect the circuit and upgrade the electrical panel if necessary.
6. Make sure electrical cords are in good condition. Never use tape to fix a damaged electrical cord, always replace the cord.
7. Test your home's smoke detectors and CO detectors
8. Check the wattage of light bulbs to make sure they are the correct wattage for the size of the fixture.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying ...

On April 1st (April fools day - go figure) my wife called me at work telling me there was smoke coming from our service panel. After advising her to contact the local fire department and having the meter pulled I left work to start what appeared to be a not so good vacation. With no power to find an electrician on my computer I had to do a search through my blackbery and OSTROM Electrical popped up. After talking with Steve, he had a service tech at my house within an hour. 4.5 hours later we had a new service panel, junction box, wiring and most off all, "POWER". I was surprised at how professional Daniel was on the install and how fast. I couldn't beleive this was happening to me on a Friday right before I was to start my vacation. I have recommended OSTROM to every one I know since that day. Now I am covered under their partner program and feel better knowing that I am under the umbrella of OSTROM Electrical. Thouroghly impressed by their service ...

Thank you for your quick response ...
