Water Heater Repair and Installation

 

The importance of Water Heaters are not often thought about until they stop working.

Homeowners realize how important this system actually is when they are unable to use their hot water. 

Water Heater Repair

Water Heaters have a life expectancy of 10-13 years, which means eventually, they will wear out and break down from corrosion and sediment buildup.

Also, water heating is the 2nd largest energy expense in your home, so making sure your hot water system is working efficiently is critical to saving money over the long term.

Depending on the use of the system, the local water chemistry, and the maintenance that it receives will determine if you water heater lasts 10 or 13 years. 

When your water heater stops working, a simple repair may not always be the case.

Standard Storage Water Heaters and their Benefits

 A standard hot water heater is what many people envision when they think of a water heater. 

A standard storage water heater tank will store and heat water in reservoir

When water is used, the tank will refill with water from the home's water source. The new water will then be heated and stored, and the cycle will continue. 

The water tank will continually be warmed to a set temperature. The tank will hold anywhere from 20-120 gallons of water just depending on the size of the tank in your home. 

The standard storage water heater tank has been been improved over the years, making today's models more efficient and reliable compared to the older versions. 

Why Tankless Water Heaters Can Be A Great Option

 A tankless water heater does not store hot water for the future like the storage tank, but instead, they provide hot water as needed. 

When you have a tankless water heater and a hot water faucet is turned on, the water will flow through the tankless heater triggering a sensor that will activate the heating device. 

The water will flow through the internal heating element, exciting the unit at the desired temperature. 

The tankless water heater will stay on until the hot water faucet is turned off. The heating element will shut off when the water stops flowing past the hot water sensor. 

A tankless water heater system costs twice as much as a traditional storage water heater, however since tankless heaters only heat water as the time of use, they are far more energy-efficient and can last up to twice as long as a tanked system.

If fact, a tankless water heater system may reduce your energy costs up to 25 percent!  

Water Heater Maintenance For Douglasville Residents

 Our licensed plumbers recommend homeowners to have their water heater inspected and cleaned on an annual basis to ensure it is working as efficiently as possible. 

During the annual tune-up, our plumbers will inspect the pressure relief valve, filters, burner assembly, anode rod, and power supply that heats the water. 

If it is necessary, the plumber may need to flush out the tank and remove any sediment at the bottom of the tank and replace any worn out components. 

The technicians at Assured Comfort do this to ensure that your water heater will continue to run efficiently as long as possible. A poorly maintained water heater may succumb to wear-and-tear more quickly.
