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.

"Great first impression with the receptionist who answered my call after the first ring! She was friendly, professional, and genuine... The service repair technician was professional and took time to explain the repair that he recommended to the A/C unit. He fixed the unit on the spot. Not only great service, but great people too. Thank you, Hartman Brothers!"

"Tech was polite, professional, knowledgeable and worked quickly to resolve the issue with my furnace. I inquired about the root cause of this recurring problem and he kindly explained what was occurring to prevent the furnace from igniting, and what he had done to resolve the current issue, which I appreciated very much! As always, I remain a happy Hartman Bros. customer!"

"My experience was excellent. The furnace runs very quietly and before when it would come on and I was sleeping it came on so loud it would wake me up. I'm so pleased with Hartman Brothers. My AC stopped working I thought it had something to do with my thermostat but Hartman's checked things out and found out someone turned the power off in the garage."

"Came home from work to find that my furnace wasn't working. Since the temperatures were extremely mild for November, I just left a message for them to call me the next day. Received a call by 7:25 am and told that the repair man would be there in approximately a half hour. He was at my house by 8:30 and he had it back running within 45 minutes. He went the extra step and made sure that there was no other possible issues before he left. I'd recommend Hartman Brothers Heating to anyone, they are courteous, reliable, knowledgeable and won't gouge you like some companies."
