Our Home Water Heater Options

When choosing a new water heater for your home, it’s important to select a system not just for its ability to heat plenty of hot water. You’ll also want to consider size, energy efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and fuel type.

At AAA, we carry a variety of residential water heating systems, including:AAA-Water-Heater

  • Standard water heaters with a storage tank of hot water
  • Tankless water heaters that heat water without the use of a storage tank
  • Solar water heaters that use the heat of the sun to generate hot water
  • Heat pump water heaters that transfer heat from one place to another instead of generating direct heat for water
  • Indirect water heaters that use the space heating system of a home to heat water

In our 60+ years of experience, we believe that Bradford White manufactures the most affordable and efficient residential standard water heaters on the market. For tankless water heaters, we have found Rinnai to be the most affordable and efficient option available.

Residential Water Heater Maintenance & Repair

It’s important to clean, maintain, and regularly service your residential water heater. A properly maintained water heater can run efficiently for 15 years or more. 

We recommended partially draining your storage tank water heater regularly to remove debris and sediment. Also, Be sure to test the temperature pressure relief valve every year and check the sacrificial anode rod once every three years. 

Looking for someone you can rely on for quality water heater service? The knowledgeable technicians at AAA Heating and Cooling can help, no matter the unit you own. In our 60+ years, we have serviced virtually every make and model on the market!



The AAA Difference for Residential Water Heaters

Water heater technology has improved greatly over the last few years. Units are now superior in energy efficiency due to new mandates by the U.S. Department of Energy. The most efficient residential gas-fired water heaters feature energy factors ranging from 0.58 to 0.65. Electric and solar water heaters have energy factors ranging between 0.90 and 0.95.

AAA Heating & Cooling expertly services residential water heaters from our Portland and Beaverton locations. If you need a new water heater, would like to switch to a tankless system, or change your existing water heater to a new fuel source, contact our expert advisors today!

Residential Water Heater FAQ


How Will I Know If My Water Heater Will Need to be Replaced Soon?

There are several things you should consider or may experience as the time to replace your home water heater nears.

  • Consider the unit’s age
  • Hearing strange noises
  • Seeing rust-colored water
  • Observing water surrounding the tank
  • Cold water

If you have a unit that is nearing the end of its lifespan, contact our Portland HVAC team to find out how we can help.

How Do I Know What Kind of Water Heater I Should Buy?

When planning to purchase a new residential water heater, you should consider factors such as:

  • Standard vs Tankless
  • The fuel source
  • The space you have available for installing the system

The highly-trained advisors at AAA Heating and Cooling can help you make an informed decision on which unit will best meet your needs and fit your budget.

How Often Should I Schedule My Tankless Water Heater Maintenance?

Generally, we recommend annual maintenance for residential tankless water heaters, but that can vary depending on whether you have hard water. Our skilled technicians will clean the filters, flush the system, and complete other tasks to ensure your system is running properly and efficiently.

Are Tankless Water Heaters Worth It?

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, tankless water heaters can be up to 34% more energy efficient than standard tank water heaters. 

You can save money by using less energy, save space by not installing a large storage tank, and have an indefinite amount of hot water at your fingertips.

What Size Water Heater Do I Need?

If you’re in the market for a residential tank water heater, the best way to size it is based on the number of people in your household. The more people utilizing the hot water, the larger the tank you’ll need if you don’t want someone stuck with a cold shower!

The size of a tankless water heater is best determined by understanding how much hot water you’ll need at a time. You’ll need to know how many appliances could be operating at once that will require hot water.

If you’re in the market for a water heater and are unsure which size to purchase, our skilled advisors are here to help!
