Water Heater Installation
Hot Water Boilers
Hot water boilers were developed to answer the need of home heating with a closed loop system of hot water, sending water to radiators and then returning for reheating. This is in contrast to hot water heaters which deliver water for daily consumption, known as potable water. The main differences in hot water boiler heating today can be found in their energy efficiencies- with the least efficient costing the least and the most efficient being the most expensive.
Steam boilers have been around since before the turn of the century. Gravity steam was originally developed to provide heating prior to the advent of electricity. Our technicians continue to install and repair residential steam boilers throughout the Westchester County area.
Hot Water Heaters
In the past, a stand-alone water heater typically meant a 30 or 40 gallon tank with a burner underneath. Technology has advanced so that the new systems have more energy efficiency because they do not have to store water in order to provide hot water. Instantaneous hot water heaters have been around for more than 25 years, but only until recently have they gained in popularity. Unlike the older technology, the instantaneous water heater provides an unlimited supply of hot water. The undisputed leader in instantaneous hot water heaters is a Japanese firm known as Noritz. They have a varied line up to match all needs. Even more impressive is their Hawthorne, NY showroon that not only has every model on display, but each model is fully installed and functioning for consumers and contractors alike. This enables customers to see each model in action and make the most informed decision possible. Contact us to arrange for a factory sponsored tour of Noritz.
If you prefer to stay with the old standard hot water heater, Abel Air does provide for the replacement of oil and gas hot water heater tanks.
