“Heartland is the best around! I filled out the service request form on their website Saturday night and I received a call first thing Monday morning to schedule, and their truck showed up 30 minutes later. Brandon and Jace were thorough and professional and had my water heater replaced and working within a couple hours.”
“Awesome service from start to finish. Brandon was the service tech. I could not have ask for anyone better. It took him just a couple of minutes to determine what was wrong. He explained in detail what should be done and how much it would cost. Did not try to over sale me. He had all the work completed in a short time frame. He even wore the shoe covers so my carpet and flooring didn't get messed up. I will most definitely use them again. Best experience ever with repair company.”
“We love 💝 Heartland! They installed one water heater and we were so pleased that we decided to swap out our 2nd water heater. They use a quality product, Bradford White brand, which we had heard good things about. We had excellent service from start to finish. Michelle, who schedules, worked with us and was able to send the technician a day early since our availability changed. From the scheduling all the way through to the final part of installation, everything went well, including clean up. We highly recommend this company!”
“I called Heartland Plumbing based on the Google reviews after going through 3 different plumbers through my warranty company (which all turned out to be duds). Nick from Heartland showed up on time, looking professional, and he followed COVID-19 safety protocols. He was polite, personable and straightforward on what he recommended. He contacted my warranty company as requested to get approval for repairs and explained to me what I could expect in the future from my water heater. I am SO glad I called Heartland! AND, he was good with my dogs!”
“They were able to quickly find a solution, track down the needed parts, and get it installed in one day. Very good about cleaning up and keeping me informed of every step along the way.”

TANK-STORAGE WATER HEATERS VS TANKLESS WATER HEATERS
When it’s time to replace or upgrade your water heater, there are two options. The first is the traditional tank storage unit. The second is a tankless unit. Both have their pros and cons. For homes with two people, a tank-storage unit usually works just fine. But if you have six or seven people showering every morning, you may need a tankless to ensure access to hot water. No matter which option you choose, Heartland Plumbing can help you install it properly, with a 100% guarantee on the service.
Tank-storage Water Heaters
Tank storage units usually range from 30 to 80 gallons. These tanks work by heating the water stored inside the tank. They come in gas and electric models. Both are relatively easy to install and are less expensive than their tankless counterparts.
One major drawback to tank-storage units is that once the tank is depleted of hot water, you must wait for the tank to reheat the water inside it. For smaller households, this may not be a problem. But for larger households, it may mean you have to wait to take a hot shower.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters offer several advantages over tank-storage water heaters. Mainly, they give you hot water on demand. Tankless units use a heat exchanger to quickly heat the water, providing you instant hot water as you need it.
Tankless water heaters have a lifespan of up to 20 years, which is longer than traditional water heaters. They are also much more energy efficient and take up less space. With a tankless water heater, you can claim back the space that traditional water heaters usually take up in the garage, laundry room, or closet.
Drawbacks of a tankless water heater include higher upfront costs and longer installation time. However, the benefits of a longer lifespan and lower energy bill should more than offset the upfront cost.
How to Maintain Your Water Heater
Both tank-storage and tankless water heaters should be flushed annually. Water heaters must also be installed according to code, for your safety. And the must be vented properly with enough air to breathe.
Heartland Plumbing offers a Club Membership for only $14.95/month, which guarantees all members one professional water heater flush per year. If you have more than one tankless water heater, every additional will be flushed at a discounted rate. Annual flushing extends the life of your water heaters and reduces the chance of water heater emergencies. Additionally, Club Members get a 15% discount on all our services.
