Water Heaters


If your water heater isn’t due for replacement but needs service, James River Air’s plumbers can help you out.  Whether it’s a gas or electric model, we can figure out what the problem is and get you back up and running quickly.

Installations – Tank Water Heaters

James River Air Conditioning Co.’s plumbers install and service all major brands of tank-style water heaters.  There are several reasons you might want to replace your old water heater.  It could be:

  • Leaking.
  • Past its lifespan (8 to 12 years).
  • Inefficient.
  • Not supplying adequate hot water to your home.

Our team of plumbers can help you choose and install the appropriate water heater for your home.  We’ll look at your available fuel sources, space considerations, and your desired level of efficiency.

Installation – Tankless Water Heaters

James River Air’s plumbers have been installing tankless water heaters for several years now.  If your current “tank” model is due for replacement, let us see if a tankless model would be a good option for you.

Tankless models have many benefits, including:

  • They don’t run out of hot water.
  • They tend to last five to ten years longer than tank heaters.
  • They’re more efficient.
  • They take up a lot less space than a tank model, and can even be installed outdoors.
  • There’s no possibility of flooding due to a ruptured tank.

About 20% of your home’s energy budget goes toward heating your water.  A tankless model can really help cut those costs.  Contact us today to learn more!


All standard water heaters (gas or electric) come with a factory warranty of 1 year labor and 6 years on parts. Effective 2013, James River Air provides a 10-year warranty on all parts and labor if a standard (non-tankless) heater is purchased and installed by any of our Residential Plumbing Service Team Members.

Automatic Shut-Off Alarms

Have you ever thought about what would happen if your water heater started leaking? Especially if it’s inside the house or even worse, in your attic. What if nobody is home to see or stop it?
