Why Have a Plumber Look at Your Water Heater?

Did you know hot water heaters tend to lose efficiency each year as they age? Should you get your hot water heater maintained or replaced? Is your hot water heater old, or is it considered new? The following points should answer your questions about hot water heaters in general:

Reasons To Get A Plumber Out To Look At Your Hot Water Heater

  • Your water bill has risen
  • You run out of hot water quickly
  • You have to wait a long time for hot water
  • You want to switch from electric to gas hot water heater
  • You’ve noticed your energy bills have risen and you wonder if switching hot water heaters would lower your energy bills

Why Your Hot Water Heater Might Be Costing You A Pretty Penny In Energy Bills

  • Your hot water heater is the third-highest energy guzzler in your home. (Your dryer and fridge are the only two appliances that use more energy than your hot water heater.)
  • If you switch from electric to gas water heater, you’ll save up to 50% on energy costs
  • If you have an older water heater (over ten years old), it’s probably only functioning at 50% efficiency. (You can check the age by looking at the numbers on the metal plate on the heater – you’ll see a date listed there.)

    Tankless water heaters are gaining popularity with homeowners in Green Bay, WI for numerous reasons. These efficient units are ideal for large families who use a lot of hot water during the day,

    We really like the new tankless water heater we got last week. But two questions: I generally drip a bath tub coming off the heater in the winter when it is getting below 20. Is it still ok for me to drip through the tankless water heater? Second, when we go away, I generally shut off the water to the house and used to shut the breaker with the electic water heater. Now the power comes through the HVAC breaker box. Is it ok for me to shut off the water but keep the breaker to the water heater and HVAC on?

      I'm glad to here you like your tankless my family enjoys one as well. The dripping faucet during extreme cold is fine to do on the hot side because your unit takes 0.4 GPM to fire which takes more than a drip. The power needs to stay on for the tankless at all times in the winter unless you drain the system down. The tankless units have a thermostat on the unit to tell it when to warm up if it get's to a certain temp. The unit will warm up on it's own if it needs to with power being on. The water can however be turned off if you leave the house and it won't effect anything.
