Water Heater Installation & Replacement
Replacing the water heater in your Jacksonville home can be a good way to reduce your energy usage and your utility costs while enjoying more reliable hot water. United Air Temp installs both standard and tankless water heaters, whether they are powered by natural gas or electricity.
Tankless water heaters are designed to heat water on demand, instead of heating and storing water in the tank, like a standard unit. It’s also wall-mounted, so it doesn’t need as much space as a conventional water heater.
One of the biggest benefits is its life span; tankless water heaters can last for 20 years, while standard units last for eight to 12 years.
Water Heater Maintenance
Routine water heater maintenance can help to keep your utility costs as low as possible while helping identify problems early and maximizing the service life of your water heater. Schedule annual water heat tune-ups to see the results.
Be sure to flush your water heater annually because flushing the sediment from the tank or the heat exchanger is the most important task. It prevents corrosion and damage that could cause these costly parts to fail prematurely.
At United Air Temp, our experts can provide all the maintenance your water heater needs, including:
- Inspecting the electrical connections
- Testing the thermostat and gas valve
- Checking the burners or heating elements
- Inspecting the anode rod
- Draining and flushing the tank or heat exchanger

Frequently Asked Questions
What temperature should I set my water heater?
While the default temperature is 140 degrees, you can save money and reduce scalding at the tap by setting your water heater to 120 degrees. Just don’t set it any lower than this, or you’ll risk microbial growth in the tank.
How do I know it's time to replace my water heater?
Here are the factors to consider:
- Age of the system
- Not enough hot water
- Visible corrosion
- Rising water heating bills
- Discolored, smelly, or metallic-tasting hot water
- Rising repair costs
Should I install a tankless water heater?
Eco-friendly tankless water heaters are common in Europe and Asia and have gained popularity in the U.S. They allow your family to take endless back-to-back showers, reduce your water heating costs, and last twice as long as tank-style units. Just be aware that they come with a higher upfront cost, have a limited flow rate, and may offer less consistent water temperatures.
