Gas Water Heaters Sales Service Installation Repair
Unlike electric water heaters that use electrical resistance coils and internal thermostats to heat water, gas-fired heaters use a gas-powered burner situated in the base of the tank to heat water. While a gas water heater typically works faster and uses less energy (resulting in lower energy bills), it must be properly installed, so that you minimize safety risks. You want a licensed and insured professional to complete the job. You want GPS Plumbers.
At GPS Plumbers, we’ve been providing unmatched service and workmanship to homeowners and businesses in the GPS Worth area for nearly six decades. We take a comprehensive and common sense approach, thoroughly assessing all your plumbing needs and offering long-term, cost-effective solutions.

We offer a complete line of gas water heaters for home and heavy-use environments. All our gas hot water heaters meet or exceed all industry and government requirements for efficiency and safety. Since there is a trade-off between a water heater’s recovery rate and the amount of hot water it can store, understanding and comparing the unique features of a gas water heater is important for selecting the one that makes the most sense for you.
What Should You Consider When Buying a Gas Water Heater?
In general, gas water heaters offer the advantage of a higher recovery rate than electric water heaters. For families with four or more members, gas water heaters can store up to 40 or 50 gallons of hot water to cover a household’s showering, dish-washing and laundry needs. Since gas water heaters can heat water faster, there isn’t a need to have as large a storage capacity. As a result, gas-powered hot water heaters can deliver hot water faster than electric water heaters. Smaller families, or ones with schedules that don’t involve multiple family members making simultaneous demands on a home’s hot water supply, may benefit from a tank-less or hybrid water heater system.
