Tank Water Heaters

Around the country and here in Massachusetts, the majority of homeowners have a storage tank water heater. This type of system uses a large insulated tank to keep a reservoir of hot water for your home comfort.

It is by far the most popular type of hot water appliance, and for good reason. Tank water heaters are relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain. As a general rule, a quality tank water heater will provide service for 10 to 12 years.

You can trust your professional team at Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical to handle your plumbing needs. As a leading service provider for storage tank water heaters in the Acton, MA area, we take pride in the quality of our installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance services. Our goal is to keep you comfortable and safe.

What Is a Tank Water Heater?

As its name suggests, a tank water heater uses a large storage tank that typically holds anywhere from 30 to 80 gallons of heated water. It is frequently installed in the basement, although sometimes in a utility closet.

The basic design is quite simple—a dip tube sends cold water to the bottom of the tank where it is heated by an electric element or gas burner. The tank is insulated to retain as much thermal energy as possible, although your water heater will have to turn on occasionally to reheat your water supply.

Water Heater Installation in Acton, MA 01720

“Sam and Josh did a great job replacing our two separate water heaters with one consolidated system. This required repiping in places and getting equipment in and out of tight spaces. They were very professional, did a fantastic job, and cleaned up better than I expected after they were done with their work. We needed to take down part of our ceiling to access the water pipes and they did the smallest and neatest cut possible, making it very easy to fix the ceiling quickly. We're very happy with their work.”

“From Anthony Kent with the initial water heater job consult, to Joe and Nick for needed electrical outlet install, to Sam and Josh with the actual heat-pump water heater install, this was a very positive experience for us with a highly trained team of professionals. All options, costs, procedures, and post-install review were thoroughly explained throughout the process of the water heater replacement. I give Basnett high marks for their professionalism and good work. I am sorry not to see the names of the Basnett staff that helped us out on your list above.”
