How do Water Heaters Work?
Have you ever wondered how a water heater works? How does it heat the water in your home and make your showers warm? At Twintech Heating & Cooling, we carry two types of water heaters: tank and tankless heaters.
A tank water heater works by collecting cold water from the bottom of the unit. The collected water is heated either by a gas flame or an electricity source. Then, the water is stored as needed. When hot water is needed, the heater sends water through your home’s hot water supply pipes and to the faucet or appliance. When the levels in the water tank drop, it will automatically start to refill and heat again.
Tankless water heaters work slightly differently than tank heaters. The cold water is not stored but drawn directly into the unit where a sensor is activated. The sensor activates a gas-fired burner or electricity source, which is then used to heat the water. After the water is heated, it travels directly towards the faucet or appliance.
Tankless water heaters are beneficial for homeowners who want compact and energy-efficient devices, that can supply an unlimited amount of hot water, heated on demand. These types of water heaters are perfect for large families and can last longer than tank heaters.
If you are looking to install or repair a water heater, contact the experts at Twintech Heating & Cooling. Our technicians have experience with both tank and tankless water heaters. Additionally, if you are looking to make the switch from an electric water heater to a gas one, not only will we install the heater, but we will also install any gas lines needed.

See What Our Customers Are Saying:
They were very friendly and took care of everything. The install looks great (and works great), they were very knowledgeable. Installed our a/c efficiently despite the difficult install location both inside and outside and they made it work.
Phenomenal service, so glad I found these guys a few years back after being "hosed" badly by 3 other companies. I've recommended them to so many, and they all are so thankful.
This company is fantastic. Dave came out and gave me a very honest and reasonable quote, unlike a quote received from another company. I had a bunch of questions that were easily answered and when I had questions regarding heating/cooling a previously unheated room above the Garage, Dave arranged for Greg to come out for an assessment of this new space and gave me his recommendation along with his professional thoughts on all of my options.
These guys have been nothing but Professional, honest and helpful along the way. I can't recall the two other guys doing the install, but they were great as well. Good workmanship, everything was cleaned up and everything functions as promised. I could go on and on about my experience, but it's all positive so what more could you want?
Give them a call, see for yourself. If I had to buy another furnace/AC or heat pump, they'd be my first call.
I hired twin tech to convert my townhouse heating from electric to gas and install a furnace and a/c unit. I had talked with many other vendors, and received several quotes, but chose them, and very happy I did. Here are some of the reasons why:
1. They were realistic about the timeline for the work, when they could start and how long it would take. (They said upfront, it was their busy season and would need to get back to me in 3 weeks, which they did):
2. They had a quote with options for me. They were clear about the entertainment of what they would and would not do (they’d build duct work, id need another contractor to box in ductwork). This allowed me to plan as I was my own general contractor for my renovations).
3. They spoke to me in a language I understood, neither too technical nor too simple. They answered all my questions as I had them. Everyone is so lovely to work with, the sales team and the contractors who are worked in my home.
4. It’s been 4 m since the work was complete. They still answer my emails and my furnace is working very well!
I unabashedly recommend! Price, customer care and quality workmanship were all amazing!
On one of the coldest days of winter, our furnace stopped working. Our regular furnace company came and told us we had a CO2 leak and shut us off. Their quote for a new furnace was way too high and they couldn't even install it on the same day. TwinTech was recommended to us by a friend. We called and spoke to Dave who was very nice and knowledgeable. Grant showed up a short time later and a new furnace was installed the same day with no troubles at all. Best of all, we received a higher-end furnace than what was offered by our previous company and at a cheaper price. I would recommend TwinTech with no hesitation at all.
