If you are considering a water heater installation in your home, there are several key aspects to keep in mind before you buy. For starters, there are a lot of great options on the market today and every year water heater models get more efficient.

You want to make sure the water heater installation in your Chandler home will give you exactly what you need from a water heater at an affordable rate. At Donley Service Center, we are experts in water heater installation. We’ve come up with a few helpful pointers to keep in mind when you are shopping for a new heater.

Gas or Electric

Do you know if your current water heater uses gas or electricity to heat water? If your Chandler home is set up for gas, you’ll want to replace your current water heater with a new gas model. If it uses electricity, you’ll want to stick with that.

What’s the Capacity?

Another important factor is purchasing a water heater with the capacity to meet your hot water needs. If the capacity is too small, you’ll run out of hot water too soon. If it is too big, you will use more energy than needed to heat larger quantities of water.

If your current heater provides enough hot water, consider sticking with that. If you find yourself running out of hot water during showers, or when filling the tub, you may want to shop for a larger heater.

Here are some important things to know:


  • How many gallons does it hold?
  • What voltage do you need (electric units)
  • How much space does it take up (dimensions)


  • Gallon capacity
  • Natural gas or propane?
  • Exhaust vent diameter
