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 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 Westford, MA 01886

“As my hot water heater was in need of timely replacement, Basnett Plumbing scheduled a prompt appointment. Phinias arrived the next day with a new, high quality water heater. Throughout the tank installation, Phinias was professional, courteous, friendly, hard working, while easily answering all of my questions throughout his stay. His manner and expertise was exactly what any home owner wants to see. While replacing the water heater, he protected my flooring with a runner and he always wore shoe covers. Phinias neatly cleaned up after the project completion, which was a very thorough job. I cannot speak highly enough for his outstanding service, and I give Basnett Plumbing rave reviews during the two times that I have called on them for help.”
