Hybrid Water Heater Specials
Blue Planet Plumbing is one of Duke Energy’s few preapproved contractors. Let Blue Planet Plumbing install your hybrid water heater and:
- Receive a $350 VISA gift card as a Duke Energy rebate
- Receive an additional $100 off if you’re an Asheville Go Local card holder
- Get Blue Planet Plumbing’s three-year labor warranty with your hot water heater replacement
- Take advantage of the standard 10-year warranty on the tank (compared to a six-year warranty for most traditional units)
Part of Duke Energy’s green movement to reduce demand at peak times, the hybrid water heater uses a heat pump to supplement its power. Hybrid water heaters are two times more efficient than traditional electric water heaters and gas-powered tankless water heaters. Installing a hybrid water heater reduces the amount of fossil fuels needed to satisfy the power demands of Western North Carolina customers.
Tankless Water Heater Installation
Tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water. Since it heats water on demand, it doesn’t need to store hot water and keep it hot. Why pay to heat water all day that you’re not using? No tank means it can fit into a smaller space. Repairs are easier and less costly, too.
A money-saving option for food service businesses and health care practices, tankless water heaters typically come with a six to 10-year warranty, based on the brand. Popular brands include:
- Noritz tankless water heaters
- Rheem tankless water heaters
- Takagi tankless water heaters
- Ecosmart tankless water heaters
- Stiebel Eltron tankless water heaters
- Eccotemp tankless water heaters
Gas or Electric Water Heater Replacement
Blue Planet Plumbing technicians are experts in hot water heater repair and replacement of traditional units (those with large tanks). Whether you want a gas or electric water heater, our plumbers recommend the most up-to-date, energy-efficient brands to fit your needs. Most gas and electric water heaters give you six-year warranties on parts.
Why Blue Planet Plumbing?
Because they treat you and the environment with equal respect.
Typically less expensive than hybrid or tankless water heaters, traditional units continue to be popular throughout Asheville. Blue Planet plumbers listen to your needs before recommending the best brand and model for you.

“Great service and very professional team. Called at 9am and had hot water by noon. Thanks, George and Blue planet plumbing!!”
“I had a really great experience with this company. Everyone was friendly and professional and courteous, and they made time in their schedule to replace my water heater as soon as possible so that I would not be without water. They were clear about pricing and just overall really awesome people to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone, and I hope everyone looks to them for their home care needs! Thanks!”
“Our water heater started leaking in our basement so we called several professional looking plumbers in town that had good reviews. The first 2 plumbers insisted we change our water heater saying “it was at the end of its life” both wanting thousands to change the unit. Blue planet was our 3rd quote and found a leaking fitting on top of the unit allowing water to run down the back on the unit on to the floor. They inspected the unit and found the inside of the tank dry and in good working order. George also found the unit was manufactured less than 5 years ago and still under factory warranty. We are glad we did not overpay. We found our plumbers!”
