Water Heaters

Unlike tankless water heaters, standard type gas and electric water heaters use an insulated storage tank. The construction or anatomy of a gas tank type water heater can be very complex and likely should be handled by the professionals at RTC Services, Inc. Water heaters are generally very reliable but occasionally they do have problems.
