Types of Water Heaters
We perform the most common water heater replacement services for traditional gas and electric tanked water heaters. Please note that we do not perform any services on tankless water heaters.
Gas water heaters are some of the most common and reliable you can have. When hot water is needed, cold water flows into the tank and is then heated to the tank’s set temperature. They generally come in different models, atmospheric vent, power vent, and direct vent.
Electric tanks essentially function the same as gas heaters, although they have electric elements in lieu of a gas burner assembly and a flu for the burnt gases.
Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Water Heater
A replacement will be necessary as your water heater ages or if it has not received regular maintenance. If you notice any of the following signs, it may be time to replace your water heater.
Water heaters can typically last to about 8-12 years. You can look up the age of your water heater by the serial number. Typically the first four numbers represent the month and year. If you have a letter in front that will stand for the month, and if you have letters G, D, or I, then they stand for the 7th, 4th, and 9th months of the year.
If you have rust on the outside of the water heater (the jacket) it may be just cosmetic. The actual tank itself is internal and leaks generally show up on the very bottom of the bank.
If you’re not getting the hot water that you regularly receive throughout your home, it could be several things including a misadjusted thermostat, a defective part, or a tank that’s too small for your home. If this issue is beyond repair, you may require a full replacement.
It’s Making Noises
If your water heater makes popping sounds, then perhaps it’s indicating that something is wrong. Sediment could build up and harden from the expansion of the water heater. Having your water heater flushed regularly could help prevent this problem.
Leaks can lead to a series of problems across your home, such as ruined carpeting, drenched belongings, or mold building up in your floors, walls, or carpeting. If you notice puddles around your water heater, it may be time to replace it.
Water Heater Services We Offer
We make sure to help you with your water heater replacement or maintenance no matter what. Here are just some of the services we offer:
We can install a new or help upgrade your current water heater. Natural gas heaters may be the most common choice, but electric might be a good choice if you don’t have gas lines or want to lower your bill with a heat pump-type water heater.
We can perform maintenance and repairs on water heaters which include:
- Relief valves that may drip at times
- Elements or thermostats
- Water that is either too hot or too cold
- Just not enough hot water
If there’s little to no hot water or overheated water, sediment deposits or changes in the odor of water such a sulphur or rotten eggs then give us a call. These may be signs of water heater issues.
If you need water heater replacement, we can take a look to see whether parts need to be replaced or the whole unit. Replaceable water heater parts include:
- Burner assembly
- Heating elements
The Benefits of Updating Your Water Heater
Updating your water heater can save you money and a load of problems in the long run.
Save yourself time and money by having maintenance done on your plumbing and water heater often! Preferable prior to holidays or any big events that would include more people at your house than normal.
Switching to a more modern electric or gas water heater can make a difference in your bill and efficiency.
Save on Cost
Tank water heaters will typically cost less than tankless, making them very affordable for their capabilities.
Provide Ready Available Water
Older tanks may have a hard time replenishing hot water quickly. A new heater can help replenish hot water, so you’re not the only one in the house washing in the cold.
