Hybrid Electric Water Heaters

For customers that don't have access to a gas line, or prefer to run an electric water heater, hybrid electric tanks are the best option for energy efficiency. They use heat pump technology to carry the workload so that the elements don't have to work as hard.


The cost to run a hybrid is generally $215 per year as opposed to $555 for the same size standard electric tank. They also carry a 10-12 year warranty depending on the model and brand. That's a savings of $4,000 over the course of the warranty period. Hybrid tanks are also energy star and are often eligible for rebates, making them the obvious choice for the replacement of a standard electric tank.

Hybrid Electric tanks are available in 50 and 80 gallons. They are typically special order items and may take 2-3 weeks to arrive when ordered, so it's best not to wait until your current tank gives out to replace it with a hybrid.

State/AO Smith Natural/LP Gas, Electric Water Heaters​

We love installing State 40/50/75 Gallon tanks that are available in Natural Gas, LP or Electric. We have short and tall sizes available as well as power vent options. State tanks are extremely reliable and are available in 6, 9 or 12-year warranty classes. When we find a product that works for our customers and has very few mechanical failures or customer service issues, we stick with it and keep installing them. That's why we prefer State over any other brand. 

If we discover something is wrong with a water heater we provided while on-site, we can easily have it swapped out by one of our apprentice techs and keep moving with the install without any delay. 

We also do not up-charge on the cost of the tank or parts. Nor do we charge to remove your existing tank or to deliver a tank that we provide. All of these services are provided free of charge to make the installation as painless and affordable as possible. 

Professional Water Heater Services Designed to Give You Peace of Mind


It’s easy to take the importance of a water heater for granted until it fails and you quickly realize how important its role is in your home. Water heaters are installed to help you cook, clean, and shower with hot water. Water heaters actually account for the largest portion of your utility bills, so having one that is efficient and works properly is critical. 


Just like anything else, hard-working water heaters can sometimes fail. Signs that it might be time for a water heater replacement include: 


  • Boiling or clanking noise when your equipment heats up

  • Water dripping from the base of the unit

  • Rust build-up or rusty water 

  • Water in your home never gets hot

  • Takes extended amounts of time to get the water to heat up

  • The pilot won’t light as it should
