Tank-type water heater intstallation

A tank-type water heater has been the standard choice for heating water in Richmond for many years. The heat source can be electricity, natural gas, propane or fuel oil. With fuel-fired heaters, the heating element (or burner) is at the base of the tank, and a flue extends up the center of the tank. Some fuel-fired heaters vent up a chimney. A direct-vent or sealed combustion water heater can vent directly through an exterior wall.

Tank-type water heaters come in different sizes. A 40-gal. model can be adequate for two people. A family of four can get by with 40 or 50 gal. A larger family usually requires a 60-gal. or 80-gal. water heater.

“Had a clog in our bathroom sink. The Stemmle people were friendly and professional. The work was completed in a timely manner and they left the area clean after completion. I would recommend this company to my friends.”
