Using the Right Water Heater
When you have a problem with your water heater, it can cause a lot of problems. We rely heavily on the warm water in our homes for bathing and cooking, so when you don’t have any, you may feel like you want to go stay in a hotel until it is repaired. At our company, we offer water heater repair and replacement options in and around the area.
If you suspect you may need water heater repairs, you can listen for any strange sounds coming from your water heater, such as a cracking or popping noises. These sounds could be a result of mineral deposits breaking off and causing damage to the water heater. Depending on the extent of the damage, water heater repairs might be an option to save some money, instead of buying a new water heater. However, if the repairs and parts will cost more than simply replacing the unit, it will be in your best interest to have our team install a new system, in your home.
How Many Types of Water Heaters are There?
As you get ready to move forward with the water heater installation process, you should familiarize yourself with the different types of water heaters you can pick from for your home. We offer options for the following:
Conventional: These water heaters come with a tank that stores hot water ready for use.
Tankless: Tankless water heaters do not have a tank and heat water for a home on-demand.
Heat Pump: Instead of generating heat specifically for warming up water, heat pump water heaters move energy from one place to another.
Solar: These water heaters use the energy of the sun to heat up water for residential use.
When we perform water heater installation, we start by carefully measuring the space to make sure the new unit fits nicely into the area. We also take into account how much hot water your family needs, based on the size of your home and how many people live there. Our team is happy to remove your old unit before starting service.
Extending the Lifespan of Your Water Heater
Most water heaters only last for 10 to 15 years. However, there are still things you can do to put off water heater repairs and extend the life of this appliance for as long as possible:
Drain your water heater semi-annually to eliminate sediment that can corrode the tank. Doing this can also increase your system’s efficiency.
Test your water heater’s pressure relief valve by lifting its handle and letting it snap back in place. If it doesn’t go back in place easily, you should install a new valve.
Prevent overheating by setting the temperature on your water heater’s thermostat at 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
