We install only high-quality water heaters
Balanced Plumbing knows water heaters, and there are a few that we have used and highly recommend. Our years of experience in working with these products have taught us that these are reliable and dependable options when a replacement is needed.
A.O. Smith, GPHE-50 Vertex™ Power-Vent 50-Gallon Gas Water Heater From A.O. Smith
A.O. Smith is our favorite brand for water heaters because their products are very dependable and innovative.

This high efficiency, tank style water heater delivers a thermal efficiency of 90% and a recovery rate of 92 gallons per hour. We prefer to use the GPHE-50/100 Power Vent because it carries a 6-year limited warranty and meets Low NOx emission requirements.
