Atomic Plumbing is Hampton Roads’ leader in water heater installation and replacement. Whether you are looking for gas, electric, or tankless, we have you covered. Our expert technicians can let you know if your current heater is in need of a repair or if you are due for an upgrade.
Your newly installed gas or electric water heater from Atomic Plumbing comes with a complete 6- or 10-year warranty. This is not only on the tank, but covers all parts, components, and labor needed to make any repairs, including replacement if necessary.
The life expectancy of a tank water heater is approximately 9 to 12 years for gas models; 10 to 13 years for electric models. This is an estimate only. The type of tank and quality of water make a difference on the unit’s life expectancy.
If you are looking into a new tank style system, these are the questions you should ask yourself:
- What size was your old tank?
- Did you run out of hot water during peak demands?
- Have you added a bathroom, washing machine or other hot water dependent device to your home?
- Has your family size increased?
- Do you plan to increase your family size?

We know that as homeowners, you want to do everything you can to save money and make your home more energy efficient. A tankless water heater takes up less space in your house, and heats water only on demand (as opposed to heating it ahead of time and storing it in a tank). By replacing your standard water heater today, you can reduce your bills and conserve hot water.
Like tank type water heaters, there are different models and options for tankless water heaters. Depending on what model you choose, you can save in the range of 5% to 65% off of your hot water heating bill. Some reports estimate a savings to be in the range of $50-$150 per year.
With regularly scheduled cleaning and proper maintenance, a tankless water heater should last between 15 to 25 years. Ensuring your unit is installed to the right specifications and paying close attention to the cleaning and maintenance schedules will help your tankless water heater fulfill its life expectancy. The technology is built to last, and with a lack of storage tank, there are less reasons for failure.
