Installing the Right Water Heater for Your Home
When it is time to install a new water heater, you will want to choose a system that is best for your needs and budget. Most residential houses will have a 30, 40, or even a 50-gallon sized water heater. However, size is not the only factor you will need to consider. There are many different styles, makes, and models of water heaters to choose from. Our professionals can evaluate your situation and help you make an informed decision about what type of water heater you should install. Once you decide, we’ll make sure that it gets installed correctly and is set up for maximum performance.
Some of the most popular options we install include:
- Natural draft water heaters – Frequently used in traditionally built houses, this type of water heater uses gravity to transfer the exhaust gas out of the home through a metal chimney.
- Power vented water heaters – This system has a fan on top that vents the exhaust gas through a plastic chimney pipe.
- Electric water heaters – This type of water heater doesn’t have any type of chimney attached since there is no exhaust gas emitted.
- Tankless water heaters – Unlike traditional water heaters, this system does not use a tank to store heated water. Instead, the water is heated instantly as it passes through the water heater, providing an endless flow of hot water.
- Manufactured house or mobile home water heaters – These types of homes have a different style of water heater that must be installed to meet certain safety standards and building codes. This kind of water heater has three different types, including atmospheric, direct vent, and electric.
Common Water Heater Problems
Like all mechanical systems, water heaters are prone to developing problems over time. Our expert technicians are here to accurately diagnose and repair any water heater issue that you are facing.
It’s time to call on our professionals for repairs when you notice:
- Rust-colored water – If you are experiencing dirty or rusty looking water, this is caused by minerals that are building up in the tank to such a level that they begin to mix with the water that pours from your faucet.
- Tank corrosion – If you notice corrosion anywhere on the outside of the tank, the chances are that the interior of the tank is looking similar or even worse.
- Insufficient hot water – If it seems as if you are running out of hot water at a faster rate than you had in the past, this can be due to rust building up on the bottom of the tank and taking away area in the tank that should have your hot water.
- Unusual sounds – If your hot water heater is making strange noises that it has not made in the past such as popping, crackling, or even tinging sounds, this can be caused by the buildup of material sitting at the bottom of the water tank.
- Leaking tank – Perhaps the most noticeable problem is seeing water around the water tank. This is an indication the unit has finally gotten a hole all the way through.
Water Heater Maintenance Tips
If properly maintained, most water heaters can last up to 10 years, whether they are powered by gas or electric. Simple steps can be taken to extend the life of a water heater and avoid costly problems, repairs, or even replacement. Not only will maintenance on your water heater increase its longevity, but it will also increase its efficiency, saving you money.
The best maintenance tips to increase the life of your water heater include:
- Drain out a few gallons of water and check the anode rod. If it’s less than 0.5” thick or coated with build-up, it should be replaced.
- Drain the remaining water and agitate the remains by spraying in some water from the cold-water supply. Repeat this process until the water comes out clean. Refill and turn the tank back on.
- Insulate the pipes and the tank. Only cover the top if it’s electric. According to This Old House, adding insulation to both the water lines and the tank can reduce heat loss by up to 45 percent and can cut water heating costs by as much as 9 percent.
