Having hot water in your Harrisburg area home exactly when you want it these days is no longer considered a luxury. It’s one of your daily necessities. And when your hot water stops or runs out, everything in your routine comes to a stand still.
At HL Bowman Inc., we offer traditional tank water heaters, tankless water heaters, and hybrid water heaters. Whichever type works best for you and your lifestyle, we are happy to install or replace, repair, or maintain your water heater for you.
We have been a third-generation, family-run plumbing and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) company since 1946. Our core family values are a thread running through everything we do at HL Bowman. We treat you, our customer, as family and with integrity—and we guarantee our quality.
Our licensed and insured plumbers have decades of experience and knowledge, giving you peace of mind when we work with you.
Traditional Water Heaters
If you prefer the tradition of a tank hot water system, we offer various options. Standard water heaters are no longer the energy-guzzling models of the past. They are much more energy-efficient these days, and tankless water heaters are not ideal for every Harrisburg home.
These traditional tank water heaters have lower installation costs than their counterparts, the tankless heaters, so this fact may appeal to your immediate budget. We offer financing to help with any water heater investment you may make.
If you need a new water heater tank installation, many times our HL Bowman plumbing professionals are able to utilize your current plumbing and energy arrangement. When this works out, this can save you both money and time.
And we can typically install your new tank without altering your current energy supply. We will simply connect your new tank to your current setup.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters have seen a surge in popularity over the past decade. If you have not considered a tankless as a hot-water source, you may be missing out.
A tankless or on-demand water heater produces hot water instantly to give you hot water precisely when you want it. Unlike a tank heater, there is no waiting for the water to heat.
The traditional tank heats and stores the water in its tank, repeatedly tapping into its energy source to continually reheat the supply. With no need to store water, tankless water heaters are very compact and can be installed in an area with limited space.
With a tankless heater, the water passes over a heating element, heated by natural gas or propane, and the element heats the water as it travels to you. With this water heater, the days of using all your hot water while in the shower are now gone.
Tankless heaters are also highly energy-efficient, since they only use the energy needed at the time they need it. This conserves energy and keeps your energy bill low. Tankless heaters additionally offer installation options with both indoor and outdoor models. These water heaters have something for everyone.
Hybrid Water Heaters
If you are looking for all the benefits of a standard water heater and all the energy efficiency of a heat pump, a hybrid water heater, or heat pump water heater, may be the right choice for you. Already having a heat pump in your Central Pennsylvania home may lend you an edge toward this option.
A hybrid water heater heats its water just like a heat pump heats. Instead of creating heat to warm the water, this water heater transfers heat from outside inside to your tank’s heat exchanger. The heat from the heat exchanger warms your water and distributes it throughout your Harrisburg home.
Similar to a tankless water heater, a hybrid water heater does not continually run, saving you money in energy. If you’re unfamiliar with this type of water heater, speak to one of HL Bowman plumbers for more details.
