Ensuring Your Home’s Comfort: Prioritize Your Water Heater

In the hustle and bustle of homeownership, it’s easy to overlook essential systems until they malfunction. One such system often taken for granted is the water heater. We seldom give it a second thought until it fails, leaving us with a costly headache. At Miller’s Services, our team of expert plumbers specializes in water heater repairs, replacements, and installations, ensuring your home remains comfortable year-round.

Our Master Plumbers are equipped with the knowledge and skills to address any water heater repair, replacement, or new installation promptly. But our commitment doesn’t end there. We’re dedicated to empowering homeowners with tips and advice on proper water heater maintenance to prevent future breakdowns. With our guidance, you can trust that your water heater is in good hands.


Sometimes water heater problems are better solved by a repair rather than a replacement; a repair can be far more cost-effective for a water heater that could easily have 5+ years of life left in it. If you experience any of the following issues, your water heater might need to be repaired or replaced:

  • No hot water
  • Inadequate supply of hot water
  • Rusty or smelly water
  • Strange noises from your water heater
  • Water leaking around the base of the heater

We can help you assess your water heater’s situation and provide the best plan of action to get your water heater functioning again. With Master Plumbers on staff, Miller’s Services is equipped to take care of your water heater. We are the leading provider of plumbing expertise in Gloucester and Mathews, Virginia, and we would love to show you why our customers keep coming back to us after all these years to help them with their plumbing needs!


Sometimes replacing your water heater is your better option, and sometimes it is your only option. For example, if your A T&P valve and plumbing leaks can be repaired, but a leaky water heater tank cannot; the unit must be replaced as soon as possible.

With time, appliances may become less efficient in their energy usage due to wear and tear. Your water heater may have to work harder and longer to produce the same results, causing your energy bill to skyrocket. 

Replacing your water heater now may be the better option for your finances in the long-run. Miller’s Services can help you get started by assessing your situation, removing the old water heater, and installing the new water heater that is best suited to your needs.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters represent a more modern and efficient approach to water heating systems. They offer the advantage of space-saving as they are smaller in size compared to traditional tank-type water heaters and can be mounted on a wall. Unlike conventional water heaters that store 40 to 50 gallons of hot water in a tank, tankless models do not have a large tank, thereby eliminating the extra cost associated with keeping water continuously hot.

These tankless systems work by heating water on demand through a coil, powered either by electricity or natural gas. However, one notable drawback of tankless water heaters is their initial cost, which can be higher than traditional models. Nevertheless, depending on your household’s water usage patterns, they can prove to be more energy-efficient and cost-effective in the long run, offsetting the initial investment.

Typically, tankless water heaters are available in smaller sizes, capable of providing 2-5 gallons of hot water per minute. For households where multiple hot water appliances are frequently used at the same time, such as laundry, dishwasher, and shower, either multiple tankless units or a larger unit may be necessary to meet the demand.

Installing a tankless water heater can be tricky and potentially hazardous, given their high-powered burners and specific venting requirements. Professional installation from Miller’s Services is recommended to ensure safety and proper functionality. We can assist in selecting the right tankless water heater based on your water usage, power source, and energy efficiency preferences. To explore more about tankless water heaters, click here.
