Water heater installation, repairs and maintenance in Lewes, Dover, and surrounding Delaware areas

Everyone wants a steady and reliable supply of hot water, and who doesn’t like to linger in a long, hot shower—unless your hot water is costing you a small fortune.

Next to heating and cooling, heating water is the largest source of energy use in your home—accounting for about 20% of your home energy bill. And since the average household uses 65 gallons of hot water a day for showers, dishwashing, laundry and other cleaning chores, it pays to educate yourself when you start shopping for a new water heater.

An old water heater costs you money

The performance of any water heater lessens over time, and this leads to wasted energy and higher costs. If your water heater is 10 or more years old, there’s a good chance that it should be replaced. Call Poore’s Propane & Oil today to schedule a no-obligation water heater inspection. We are a leading water heater installer in Delmarva, so we’ve seen it all—trust us for an honest, objective opinion.

Remember that water heaters may not always warn you when they are about to fail, and when they do, water damage can result. This is why it pays to shop in advance for a new water heater, so you can find the unit that best meets your needs before there’s an emergency. The last thing you want to do is to make a panic buy.

Feeling a chill in your shower?

Sometimes you do get clues from your aging water heater. If it takes longer to heat water than it used to, or the water doesn’t get as hot, these are strong signs that you are ready for a new water heating unit. Other trouble signs include a slow leak from your tank or rust on the tank or in your tap water. (A water tank rusts from the inside out).

If you think your water heater is failing—the average water heater lasts anywhere from 7 to 13 years—please contact us about your options in oil-fired or propane water heaters.

Both of these options—which include propane tankless/on-demand units and indirect-fired oil water heaters—provide plenty of hot water at a very affordable cost. That’s something that extremely inefficient electric water heaters cannot provide.
