Both traditional and tankless water heaters require annual maintenance to maintain peak efficiency and prevent costly breakdowns.

Types of Water Heaters We Service
At Blind & Sons, our experienced plumbers can repair, maintain, and install all types, makes, and models of water heaters. We service both traditional and tankless water heaters:
Traditional tank-style water heaters hold water in a large tank, heating it continuously to be ready when you need hot water. When you turn on the hot water, the tank empties. If multiple people require hot water quickly, the tank can run out of heated water. When this happens, you must wait for the tank to refill and reheat. This can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and 20 minutes, depending on the type of water heater and the tank size.
We service and install the following types of traditional water heaters:
- Traditional gas water heaters
- Traditional electric water heaters
- Hybrid water heaters run on electric power generated by a heat pump. If electricity is your only option, this may be an efficient alternative to a traditional electric water heater.
- Solar water heaters run on the sun’s energy and have a backup battery to ensure you always have access to hot water.
Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand water heaters, do not store water in a tank. Instead, they instantly heat water as soon as you turn on the hot water faucet, then stop heating it when you turn it off. With no hot water supply to maintain, tankless water heaters only use energy when you require hot water. They will never “run out” of hot water, but they may have trouble keeping up if you require a large volume of hot water at one time. This can be prevented with proper sizing to ensure you install a tankless water heater with a large enough temperature rise and flow rate for your needs.
We service and install the following types of tankless water heaters:
- Tankless gas water heaters
- Tankless electric water heaters
Both traditional and tankless water heaters have distinct advantages and disadvantages. At Blind & Sons, our professional plumbers and technicians can walk you through the pros and cons of various types of water heaters, fully explaining their impact on your hot water supply, budget, and utility costs. Our expert team will help you choose the best fit for your household.

Water Heater FAQs
Traditional water heaters last about 10-15 years, and tankless water heaters can last for 20+ years. The lifespan of your water heater will depend on the maintenance and care it receives, as well as your frequency of use. Don’t wait to call for repair if you’re experiencing a lack of hot water or inconsistent/insufficient hot water. You should also call us if you notice water that looks or smells strange, inconsistent water pressure, leaks from your water heater, or unusual sounds coming from your water heater. Tankless water heaters are built to last and typically experience fewer malfunctions, but they still need annual maintenance to stay in good shape and prevent breakdowns. They should be flushed and have their filter cleaned once per year. A professional can perform more thorough maintenance, including safety checks and performance tests.
