Louisville Hot Water Heater Services


Producing hot water is the 3rd largest energy-consuming process in the average Kentucky household. About 80 to 100 gallons of water are used by each person every day. When your home relies on an outdated natural gas water heater or electric water heater, this process has a high price and costs more than it has to.

Water heater repair and installation of water heaters are tasks most homeowners neglect until a clear problem has presented itself. Unfortunately, this is often a costly strategy, as issues grow and become more expensive to fix, or they extend beyond what’s fixable and you’re stuck paying for a new hot water heater unexpectedly.

Be diligent and watch for signs your tank water heater needs to be repaired. Noises during operation and rusty water are key clues to the presence of a problem. It’s important you don’t ignore it – instead, call Jarboe’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing plumbing team to schedule service and our experts will take a look. Early repair often helps Louisville homeowners avoid preventable system replacements and a repair bill of a few hundred to a few thousand for new water heater installation.

Maintenance for Louisville Water Heaters

Just like space heating systems and air conditioners, water heaters need maintenance, too! For tank water heaters, it’s important to flush the system – something most homeowners do not even know is necessary. Regular maintenance for your water heater helps preserve its energy efficiency and performance, as well as prevents malfunctions and the need for repairs.

Sediment builds in the bottom of the tank over time. It settles over the heating elements, blocking water from receiving heat efficiently. Flushing on a regular basis clears out the sediment and helps the system run more efficiently.

Flushing a water heater can be an easy job, but if you don’t know what to do or when to do it, it’s a job best left to a plumber. Jarboe’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing performs water heater maintenance for Louisville area residents. Let us handle the job to ensure there are no hot water burns to you or your loved ones, and no accidental damage is done to your water heater.

Picking a Water Heater for Your Louisville Home

When it comes to water heater replacement, the best scenario is to get it done before your existing unit fails. Even if your current water heater still has life left, that doesn’t mean there aren’t better options available that could bring you savings if you go ahead and upgrade.

With 14% of your home’s energy budget allotted to water heating, the new water heater you pick will have an impact on your energy expenses. Jarboe’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing advises you consider these factors as you evaluate new gas water heaters, electric water heaters, heat pump water heaters, and tankless water heaters for your replacement project.

  • What capacity do you need? Water heaters come in different sizes, so just like shoes, one size doesn’t fit all and the perfect fit will be the most comfortable option. Tank water heaters are sized by first-hour rating or FHR. The unit’s first-hour rating tells you how many gallons of hot water it can deliver in the first hour of use, starting with a full tank. If you buy an undersized water heater, you won’t have enough hot water – if you choose a water heater that is too big, you’ll pay more in energy costs than you need to. Make sure your new water heater is the right fit – have the plumbers of Jarboe’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing write a free estimate for your upgrade and perform the necessary calculations to determine appropriate unit sizing.

  • What energy efficiency do you want? Water heaters offer a range of efficiency levels, noted by the unit’s Energy Factor, or EF. The higher the EF number, the more efficient the unit is. Typically, higher efficiency means lower operating costs, but with water heaters, you may have an option between fuel types that could make a difference. When deciding between a gas water heater, electric water heater, or even a heat pump model, you need to look at utility unit prices to see if the prices differ greatly and impact your decision.

  • How much does it cost to replace a hot water heater? Budget is certainly a concern, but there are many options available to suit any preferred price range. Try not to get too stuck on the unit’s purchase price and focus more on operating costs – a more expensive unit can be far cheaper to run, while a less expensive water heater will cost you hundreds more over the years to operate.
