WATER HEATER PREVENTATIVE CARE
Water heaters often work perfectly for a decade or more without any care, so they’re easy to neglect. But a few minutes of water heater maintenance once a year pays off by extending the tank’s life span and maintaining your water heater’s efficiency and safety. If there are problems occurring, here are some water heater repair tips to help keep it working.
TOP 3 MOST COMMON WATER HEATER ISSUES WE REPAIR
1. Broken Dip Tubes - A broken dip tube is the most common reason for a sudden decrease in the supply of hot water, but it is also a simple job for our technicians to fix. The dip tube carries cold, fresh water from the municipal supply down through the tank of the water heater and to the bottom where the heat exchanger transfers energy from the combustion jets.
2. Faulty Burner - Gas-powered water heaters can encounter problems in their burner, much like those in a gas furnace. Rust in the burner or dirt across its surface can lead to it having trouble igniting, and low gas flow or blockage in the line can also lead to a loss of heating power.
3. Failed Heating Elements - Electric water heaters use two heating elements inside the tank to raise the temperature of the water. If one of the elements burns out, the water temperature will decrease and you’ll experience lukewarm water from your taps and showerheads. Our experts can open the tank and replace the broken element.
TANK VS. TANKLESS WATER HEATERS
According to Energy.gov, “For homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, demand (or tankless) water heaters can be 24% to 34% more energy-efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters.” Tankless water heaters (if gas-fired) will save homeowners over $100 annually the longer they remain in service.
PROS AND CONS OF A TANKLESS WATER HEATER
+ Improved water temperature.
+ Extended equipment life.
+ Never a lack of hot water: Tankless heaters deliver 2-3 gallons of hot water per minute.
+ Saves money over time: Tankless water heaters can reduce energy costs by as much as 25%.
- Higher purchase costs than the traditional storage tank.
- They can be output challenged - this means if you're taking a shower and doing laundry, tankless may fail to keep up with the hot water demand of both.
