Another thing to look for is a good company that will schedule your service calls when you’re available. A willingness to work within YOUR schedule is vital!

Do You Need Water Heater Repair Work?

A professional can help you get your water heater back to seeming brand-new with maintenance and repair work, whether you’re looking at home repair or commercial repair. How can you figure out whether you’re going to want a repair or a replacement?

  1. Ask a trusted professional. Find an honest, hard-working plumber who will look at your water heater and give you a solid estimate for what kind of  damage you’re looking at. A good plumber will tell you if you can find a cost-effective fix for a small problem. Don’t spend more than you have to!
  2. Self-diagnose the problem. There are plenty of issues that you can check out yourself and figure out if you need to call in a professional for repair work or a replacement. Some of the repair work can even be done on your own! Check out our blog from September to learn more about the problems you might be experiencing with your water heater.
  3. Figure out how old your water heater is. Most water heaters should be lasting you 10-15 years. If you’re experiencing serious issues or recurring problems after having your water heater for ten years, it’s time for a replacement. Repair is probably the right answer if you’re looking at a water heater that is newer than ten years!

A water heater repair isn’t a big deal when it starts. However, if you begin noticing problems and DON’T get someone in to look at the issue soon, you may have an even bigger problem on your hands. It’s vital to call a professional as soon as you notice a problem so that a small leak doesn’t turn into something that requires a more expensive fix. Plus, it’s never fun to lose your hot water – especially when winter is around the corner.

Are You Looking for a Replacement?

Replacement water heaters may be expensive, but sometimes they are necessary. If your water heater is more than ten years old or has severe corrosion/leaking, you should reach out to a professional who can do your water heaters install. You should also look into what kind of water heater will be best for your replacement. Have you considered a tankless water heater? While a newer concept, there are plenty of reasons to consider a tankless water heater.  Start your journey by figuring out what kind of water heater will be the best for your home or office!

Tankless water heaters have several benefits and one down-side. Tankless water heaters are being heralded as great for two things: energy efficiency and fast heating. The tankless system also lasts longer than any of the standard systems. You can have a tankless system last up to twenty years (that’s eight to ten years longer!) with proper maintenance. However, the tankless system builds up corrosion and sediment faster than a standards system, so you’ll want to do your maintenance more frequently to make sure that the water heater stays healthy. The only time when a tankless water heater might not be the best option for you is when your home or business uses an unconventional amount of hot water (more than 41 gallons per day). Any high water usage homes or businesses would have trouble with heating and energy usage. If you fit into that category, you may want to consider a standard water heater!
