The water heater repair may be something as simple as replacing a heating element or it could be something so serious the entire system needs to be replaced. The only way to tell is to let us take a look at it.
Water Heater Maintenance
Routine water heater service can prolong the service life of your system. A good example of this is flushing sediment out of the bottom of the water heater.
As water heats up, minerals inside it, such as calcium carbonate, can get drawn out and settle into the bottom of the heater. If these minerals aren’t removed, they can cause all sort of problems including discoloration, heating problems, and leaks. Flushing the system once a year can remove these sediments and prevent some of these problems.
Other maintenance items include adjusting water temperature and testing the temperature pressure relief system.
If your water heater needs routine maintenance, let us do it for you. Call Talmich Plumbing and Heating today.
Water Heater Installation and Replacement
A proper Hot water heater installation can easily last for many years. However, at some point, they will need to be replaced. A common reason for water heater replacement is when the system starts leaking.
A pipe leak can be fixed. When the water heater itself starts leaking, there is no other solution than complete replacement.
When it’s time to replace your hot water heater, you have a number of things to consider first.
The easiest and fastest water heater replacement option is to replace your water heating equipment with the same exact configuration.
However, if you want to make a change, perhaps you want more capacity, this is the best time to do it. Here are a few of the more important things to consider when you are deciding which way to go.
One of the first choices you need to make is how to power the water heater. The two most common options available today are electric and gas.
A water heater that runs off of electricity is quite common in homes that don’t use fuel for other purposes such as cooking or heating. An electrical model usually costs less to install than one that runs off of fuel. However, the cost of running it over time will be higher.
A model that runs off of fuel often costs more to install than an electrical model. However, it can be cheaper to run over the life of the water heater.
Storage or On-demand
The next decision to make before your water heater installation is whether to store hot water or to make it on-demand. A traditional water heater will store hot water at consistent temperature, awaiting the turn of a faucet. A more efficient option is on-demand water heating, where the water is heated as demanded by use.
You may hear these systems referred to as tanked and tankless water heaters.
Capacity or Flow Rate
Is your old water heater producing enough hot water? If not, it’s a good idea to increase capacity or flow rate when you are doing a water heater replacement.
When you choose to go with a storage water heater, you can increase the size to get more capacity. For example, if your current capacity is 40 gallons, you can increase capacity by upgrading to a 50 or 60-gallon model.
If you select an on-demand system, you can get a system that delivers anywhere from 4 to 8 gallons of hot water per minute. For large or busy households, a water heater installation with an 8-gallon per minute flow rate is the better choice.
When Do You Need to Call a Water Heater Specialist
You may be wondering when it’s time to call someone to look at your equipment for possible water heater repair.
First of all if you’ve got no hot water, check a few things before you call for water heater repair.
- If it’s an electrical based system, make sure the breaker hasn’t tripped. If it has, reset it and see if the water starts heating up.
- When it’s a fuel-based system, make sure the fuel is getting to the system. Make sure the pilot light, if it has one, is lit.
- Make sure water is flowing to the system.
Here are a few signs it’s time to call Talmich Plumbing for water heater repair:
- Still no hot water after troubleshooting
- Water heater leaking around the base
- Smell of fuel
- Loud noises coming from the water heater
- Discolored or smelly water
Put simply, water heaters are supposed to do their work quietly and without emitting smells.
There should be no signs of water leaking, and the water coming out should be clear and odorless. If your water heater isn’t doing its job properly, it’s time to call for the repair specialists.
