How Do I Know If I Need a New Hot Water Heater?
If your current water heater is more than 10-12 years old, is not heating water efficiently, or is leaking, it may be time for a new one. Our experienced technicians can assess your current system and provide advice on the best next steps.
How Does a Conventional Hot Water Heater Work?
A conventional hot water heater stores a large amount of water in a tank and keeps it heated to a set temperature. When you turn on a hot water tap, hot water is released from the top of the tank and cold water enters the bottom to be heated.
What Is a Tankless Water Heater & How Does It Work?
A tankless water heater, also known as an on-demand water heater, heats water only when you need it. As water flows through the unit, it is heated by either a gas burner or an electric element. This means you're not paying to heat and reheat water that you're not using.
How Is a Power Vent Gas Water Heater Different from a Hot Water Tank?
Power vent gas water heaters are equipped with a built-in fan that expels the combustion gasses directly outdoors. This allows for more flexible placement in your home, as they don't require a vertical flue or chimney.
How Energy Efficient Is Each Different Type of Water Heater?
While all water heaters we install are designed for efficiency, there are differences among types.
- Conventional tank water heaters usually have an efficiency range of about 60-70%.
- Tankless water heaters can reach up to 98% efficiency, as they only heat water on demand.
- Power vent gas water heaters are more efficient than standard tank models because they minimize heat loss with their motorized venting system, usually achieving an efficiency of 70-80%.
How Much Does it Cost to Install a New Water Heater?
The cost of installation varies depending on the type of water heater.
- Conventional tank water heaters typically cost between $1,000 and $1,500 for the unit and installation.
- Tankless water heaters, due to their more complex installation process, usually cost between $2,500 and $4,500.
- Power vent gas water heaters, which require additional venting installation, typically range from $1,500 to $2,500.
These are rough estimates only—costs will vary for specific models, as well as the unique installation factors in your home. When you contact us about buying a new water heater, we’ll provide detailed quotes for each option based on your specific needs.
How Should I Maintain My Water Heater to Maximize Its Lifespan & Efficiency?
For conventional tank water heaters, we recommend annual draining to remove sediment and regular inspection of the pressure relief valve and heating element.
Tankless water heaters generally require annual system flushing and checking of the in-line screen filter for debris.
Power vent gas water heaters should have their venting system checked annually for obstructions or wear, in addition to the regular maintenance similar to conventional tank heaters.
Our team at Lee's Summit Heating & Cooling can provide comprehensive maintenance services no matter what kind of water heater you purchase.

“I had a very good experience in the past with LS H&C when they replaced my furnace unit, so I went back to them to replace my water heater and they did not disappoint. They were extremely responsive to my questions when I was asking them about water heater replacement options. They were professional in all aspects of my dealings with them.”
