HVAC and Water Heaters: Do they Go Hand-in-Hand?If you have a forced-air HVAC system and a gas-fired water heater like many homes in the Fort Wayne area, you might not think they're related in any way. However, both are essential in your day-to-day life, and they're the two biggest energy consumers in your household. This makes HVAC and water heater maintenance equally important in terms of energy savings and comfort.

Where Should Your Tankless Water Heater Go?The small size of tankless water heaters allow them to fit just about anywhere in your home. You could mount your tankless water heater in a closet, under a sink, or in a storage area or hang it in the corner of your garage. Some of these locations aren't practical, however, due to the installation and operation requirements of your tankless unit. Keep reading to gain insight into where your HVAC contractor should install your new tankless system.

Tankless Water Heater Basics -- Why Does It Take Longer to Heat?If you are replacing your storage tank water heater or are installing a new one in a new construction or commercial building, you may be considering a tankless water heater. These take up much less space for installation and are more efficient than storage water heaters. They also offer a constant supply of hot water, as long as they're sized correctly for your needs. The initial cost may be higher for purchase and installation, but in the long run a tankless unit should last much longer than a storage water heater and save much more in monthly water heating costs, since a tankless unit doesn't need to keep 40-50 gallons of water heated constantly.

Plan For Water Heater Replacement Before You Absolutely Need ToIn most cases, consumers wait for their water heater to go out before they consider a replacement. This can lead to a lack of hot water until the old model is replaced, and it may result in a higher cost up-front because you won't be able to wait for end-of-the-years sales or other discounts that might be available. Since this is somewhat of an emergency, you may have to pay a premium for immediate service.

"Love these people! We bought a brand new furnace and ac a year ago. For some crazy reason something happened to the ac Sunday when it was 91 degrees . I had a service guy here Sunday and Monday... Vicky was fabulous through it all and the guys were wonderful. They ended up working after hours and got it all fixed... Thank you from the bottom of my heart and my puppies. We're cool again!!"

"Extremely pleased with their work! When I say I'm a picky customer, I really mean it (I'm a Training Manager for an HVAC manufacturer). These guys showed up precisely on time, were extremely courteous and professional, and did an outstanding job on my system. They were very careful moving the equipment to my mechanical room (not an easy task), did a very neat job on the install, and cleaned up so that everything was spotless when they left. I even gave them an opportunity to do a "shortcut" on my install, but they refused and said "that's not the way we do it." It was easy to tell that these techs took PRIDE in the work they were doing. I can't even begin to tell you how much I would recommend this small business from New Haven, IN to do any HVAC work. If you want a courteous, professional install at a reasonable price, call Hartman Bros!"

"Ked was excellent, friendly from the start and extremely helpful. Because of how thorough he was, he fixed the problem but also discovered another potential problem and promptly fixed it as well."

"Brian showed me what was wrong with my air conditioning unit and explained everything so I could understand. He spoke to Vicki at the office regarding a needed part that would have to be ordered. They could have slapped a generic part on, but it would have only been a short-term fix. Instead of taking the easy way out, they are getting the part made for my unit so it will stay fixed, and they are coming back to finish the job as soon as they have the part. Hartman Brothers is ethical, knowledgeable, friendly, and they do the job right! I highly recommend them!"
