Water Heaters are the unsung heroes of home appliances.
They do so much to keep you comfortable in your Pacific Northwest home. But we hardly think about our water heaters—until they break. Usually, when this happens, we find ourselves forced to make a hasty replacement decision while mopping up water.
At HomeRx and Performance Insulation Energy Services, we install, replace, repair, and maintain all types of water heaters for homes in Oregon and Washington. Our licensed professionals will correctly install whichever water heater is best suited to your household needs.
Portland Water Heater Installation and Replacement
A well-maintained water heater will last for 10 to 15 before it needs replacing. At the 10-year mark, it makes sense to start planning for a new model.
Think there might be an issue with your water heater? Here are a few indicators:
No hot water
Did someone tamper with the temperature? Otherwise, this will typically indicate a problem with the pilot light, thermostat, or poor wiring connections.
Corrosion is usually the culprit here, allowing rust to form in your tank. A faulty anode rod could be the reason for the corrosion.
Sediment forming at the bottom of your tank can pop when the water heats up, creating a banging noise.
One of our HomeRx and Performance Insulation Energy Services professionals can inspect your water heater and help you determine the best course of action. Be sure to ask about our flexible financing options tailored to your budget and needs.

Storage Tank Water Heaters
These models are the most common ones you’ll find in the Pacific Northwest. They’re easy to install, reliable, and affordable. A 50-gallon tank can efficiently serve a household of up to four people.
Be sure you have the proper space for a new tank, especially if you are planning to upgrade to a larger size. These models also use more energy since a gas burner is constantly warming the water.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless, or on-demand water heaters, offer a perfect solution to anyone without a lot of extra space in their home. These models do not store the water—but instead heats water as it passes through a series of coils inside the unit. Tankless water heaters cost more upfront than conventional water heaters tanks but use less energy and last longer.
If you live in a large household, you might want to consider installing two small tankless units to accommodate everyone.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
Did you know your heat pump also can power your water heater? You can retrofit a conventional tank water heater to work with your heat pump or buy a heat pump water heater that combines the two components.
Heat pump water heaters are three times more efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters. These models also last longer than conventional water heaters.
Electric Water Heaters
An electric water heater warms water with high-voltage electric heating rods inside the tank. These models enjoy long service lives, heat water efficiently, and are easy to install.
Be prepared—your electric water heater will not operate in the event of a power outage.
