Water Heater Tank Repair
There are many things to think about when it comes to your home or business's hot water heater tank repair.
Possible Hot Water Tank Issues:
- Low hot water pressure
- A faulty hot water relief valve
- Clogged drain valve
- Extinguished pilot light
However, there are many repairs that we suggest you put in the hands of a Warren plumbing professional if you don't think of yourself as much of a handyman.
A reliable plumber will always suggest that you have your water heater inspected and maintained yearly. By making sure that this takes place, you ensure that your water heater will continuously be up to code, and running at its peak level of efficiency. An essential part of this annual maintenance is to replace the heater's anode rod. The corrosive material that flows through the water heater is attracted to and collected by the anode rod and keeps it from filling with harmful build-up. This build-up can ultimately lead to leaks, ruptures, and potential tank failure. Our plumbers will also flush and drain your water heater tank to remove the natural build-up of sediment and lime deposits. If your tank is not frequently flushed and the pipes drained, the water heater burner will not be able to heat your water efficiently. It will eventually lead to increased use of energy, smelly water, and longer wait times for hot water.
Hot Water Tank Installation
When looking to buy a new water heater, it is essential to know that there are now two significant options. The most standard and identifiable is the traditional storage water tank heater, which uses a tank to keep a specific number of gallons of water hot at all times and prepared to use right when you require it.
Your household size helps determine the size of the water tank you require to keep a consistent supply of hot water.
This type of water heater usually runs on electricity or gas. However, some units use propane or fuel oil. The kind of fuel your water heater works on will affect the general cost and energy efficiency of your house.
