OUR SERVICESWater Heater Installation

The cost of heating water consumes almost 20 percent of your household budget, second only to what you spend on heating and cooling your home. Despite this expense, water heaters are typically ignored until they break, leaving you with no hot water and, possibly, a flooded basement.

If your water heater is nearing the end of its useful life and you're thinking of replacing it before disaster strikes, you'll be happy to know that you have better choices. New tank water heaters are required to operate more efficiently and tankless (on-demand) water heaters are even more efficient than that.

Onsite Visit
All of our free estimates require an onsite visit from one of our qualified technicians. Our goal is to understand any issues you may be having with your current water heater as well as any other goals you may have for your new heater, such as reducing energy consumption.
Equipment Options
Once we understand your water heater issues and your goals, we will customize replacement options to fit them. We'll discuss your options to help you select the one that will work best for you. We will match your needs and budget with the right water heater and help you get the most out of it by installing it properly. We work hard to earn and keep customers' trust, which means we'll only recommend work that's in your best interest.

The installation crew we send to your home will always be made up of full-time Lake Contracting employees, not subcontractors.

Our crews are trained to provide clean, quality installations. They are held to high standards and consistently meet them.

So how are you supposed to know when it's time to replace your hot water heater?

Your hot water heater is more than 10 years old
In general, you can expect a traditional tank hot water heater to last about 8-12 years. The exact service life of your water heater will vary a bit, depending on where the unit is installed, how frequently it's been maintained or repaired and the quality of your water. However, when your water heater reaches 10 years of service, you're likely to start noticing problems.
You notice leaks around the base
If water is pooling around the base of your water heater or you notice any water corrosion on the sides of the tank, you've got a leak. When your water heater starts leaking, it needs replaced immediately. Leaks trend to happen when water pressure is no longer being properly regulated inside the tank, and it could lead to a tank explosion.
You start hearing noises
If your water heater is making loud noises that sound like knocking, rumbling or gurgling, it likely has sediment buildup inside. That sediment hardens as it sits inside your water heater. It'll cause knocking noises when it moves around.
You notice cracks or tiny holes
If you see any cracks or tiny holes on the exterior of your water heater, you're likely dealing with brittle metal. As the metal of your water heating becomes brittle, it can begin developing cracks and holes that lead to leaks or rumbling noises. Once that metal is compromised, it's time to replace it.
You don't have enough hot water
Another problem sediment can cause is a lack of hot water. The sediment that builds up on the bottom gets between the burner and the water. This results in colder showers and a harder-working heating element. Eventually, the heater will fail and possibly cause a leak.
You're experiencing higher utility bills
As water heaters get older, they can become less efficient. Serious problems with your water heater can also cause a noticeable increase in your monthly utility bills. For example, your water heater might need to use more gas or electricity to heat water. Sediment buildup can also make water heaters less efficient and more expensive to operate.
