Your Local Water Expert

At Lochard, we provide on-site water testing to evaluate the quality of water coming into your home, determining the whole house water system that is right for your family’s needs. Our water conditioning services include installation and repair of water heaters, water softeners, water osmosis systems, iron reduction systems and more.

Water Heaters

At Lochard, we install both tankless and regular tank water heaters, both electric and gas models. Many new improvements have made water heaters more efficient, and thus less expensive to operate. In addition, there are options like continuously recirculating water systems that can further reduce your energy costs and water bills.

Water Softeners

Our IM Series water softeners from Sterling bring system performance and ease of service to a new level. The Sterling IM Series represents an advanced line of water softeners designed to handle the most demanding household needs. Whether the water is from a municipal source or a private well, the IM Series is highly effective in removing unwanted hardness minerals.

Great service. The technician went over our system and took the time to tell us about it. He even took the time to reprogram our thermostat.
