The Vital Role Modern Water Heaters Play in Staunton
Prior to the invention of the water heater, you had to warm water in a pot on a fire or a stove. You’d then have to cart it to the tub, risking blisters and burns on the way. As the process was time consuming, families often opted to take turns bathing in the same water. In 1889, however, an inventor by the name of Edwin Ruud succeeded in making things a little easier. At first, water heaters were a convenience of well-to-do families, but that soon changed. We’ve come a long way to ensuring every household has access to hot water when and where it’s needed. The addition of tankless units also lets us do it in minimal space.
Today’s water heaters are convenient and intuitive. Once installed, they run almost entirely without human intervention. Nowadays, there are several designs available in the Staunton area. And, when it comes to installing the system that’s right for you, it’s hard to beat the plumbing experts at Boyers.
