Common Reasons for Water Heater Repair
When you call a professional water heater company for water heater service, chances are, they will inspect the following issues first to eliminate them. These are the most common causes for water heater repair service:
Thermostat: The thermostat is the component that controls the temperature of the water heater. If it is malfunctioning, you will lose control and experience unexpected hot or cold water.
Electrical Components: If the electrical components such as the wiring or sensors fail, you could be stranded without any hot water.
Physical Damage: Cracks, dents or leaks are all reason to call for hot water tank repair. These issues can lead to water damage, corrosion and present electrical danger too.
Thermocouple Problems: This safety device is an essential part of your gas water heater. It senses when the pilot is not lit and shuts down the gas control valve. Sometimes the gas control valve itself can be the problem as well.
Dirty Pilot & Burner Assembly: Periodic cleaning prevents water heater outages.
Is it Time for a New Water Heater Installation?
Are you tired of making excuses for your inefficient water heater? Do you always experience unexpected shocks of cold water? Or perhaps your water heater has made the decision for you and has simply stopped working altogether.
It may be time to consider professional water heater replacement. Traditional water heaters typically last for about 10-15 years before they start to lose efficiency and require replacement.
If your water heater is constantly breaking down, requiring repair or if you notice rising energy bills from an inefficient unit, it’s definitely time to replace the unit. Replacing an old water heater will result in savings in the long run.
At E.R. Services, we specialize in all types of water heaters so we can recommend the best model for your unique home needs. From traditional systems to tankless water heaters, we have you covered.
How to Choose a New Water Heater
Choosing your first water heater? Unsure if water heaters have changed since the last time you had to buy one? A new water heater is an investment. Plumbing technology has improved over the years. You'll want to talk to an expert about options.
The biggest decision is tank or tankless. Traditional tank water heaters have been the standard for over a century, but that doesn't mean it's the only (or the best) option available. In fact, households with more than two people typically benefit most from a tankless water heater. Why? Tankless water heaters offer the following advantages:
- They last 20+ years, so you won't have to replace your water heater again for two decades.
- Tankless units do not require maintenance. Tank water heaters should be flushed annually to avoid build up of sediment.
- They are energy efficient. That means they will lower your water heating costs, which typically run about 30-40% of your energy bill. This pays off over time.
- They take up less space and can be installed just about anywhere, including in the garage or outside.
- Tankless water heaters provide endless hot water, so you'll never run out of hot water again—even when all the kids are taking showers at the same time and you're running the dishwasher or laundry.
Tank water heaters are still the standard option. They are less expensive upfront, and they are perfect for people who have:
- Only two or three people living at home, limiting the need for too much hot water at one time
- People who plan on selling their home in the next ten years (since tank water heaters usually last 10-15 years)
- Homeowners who don't mind performing maintenance. Tank water heaters should be flushed and drained annually. It is also wise to replace the anode rod every three years to prevent corrosion and/or a breakdown.
Naturally, you will also want to discuss energy options. Electric, gas, solar and hybrid water heaters are all options, although most of our customers use gas water heaters. We'll help you choose the best water heater for your home.
