Water Heaters

Water Heaters

Water heaters are hardly given a thought until they stop working. Homeowners turn on a tap and expect to feel an instant supply of hot, steamy water — and then they find themselves in a cold shower.

New Water Heater Installation

Gas, electric, solar powered, tankless, different sizes—with so many types of hot water heaters to choose from nowadays, it is important to take your time to find the best option for your family and home. Don’t wait for disaster to strike, or you’ll end up rushing to purchase whatever will get your hot water running again as quickly as possible. This could potentially cost you more than you need to spend for something that might be less than ideal.

If you need another reason to start exploring hot water heater replacement, here are 5 additional benefits that may surprise you!

1. Higher efficiency. Newer hot water heaters help reduce waste and save energy. Better insulation and less time to heat the water makes hot water heaters more efficient. When less energy is used, greenhouse gas emissions are lower.

Pro tip: Look for the Uniform Energy Factor rating (UEF). This number calculates how much energy it takes to produce your hot water output. The higher the number, the more efficient it is.

2. Bigger savings. It goes without saying that the more efficient your hot water heater is, the less it will cost you to run it. Another advantage of a new hot water heater is that it also requires less maintenance.

Pro tip: As hot water heaters age, they require more energy to work correctly. Pay attention to your utility bills—if you see a spike in costs, it could be because your existing unit is beginning to fail.

3. Quieter conditions. Older units tend to be louder when they run than their newer counterparts, but they also make more noise as they age. You might be shocked to hear the reduction in white noise when you replace your clunky, old hot water heater.

Pro tip: Sediment buildup in hot water heater tanks is common, but as it hardens, it might start to move around and make knocking or rumbling noises. If you hear unusual sounds, call your plumber to have it checked.

4. Less space. Newer hot water heaters are more streamlined, especially tankless units. These small rectangular units are mounted to a wall, giving you more storage space.

Pro tip: Because there is no big bulky storage tank, a typical large tankless hot water heater only takes up a space of about 24 inches square with a depth of 10 inches. There are other factors to consider before you go tankless, though; talking to a professional can help you decide if it is right for you.

5. Longer showers. As your household grows, so do your hot water needs. A new hot water heater can help you accommodate more people by increasing the size of your tank. Also, a better recovery rate means hot water will replenish faster, allowing your family to take multiple back-to-back showers and ensuring no one gets left in the cold.

Pro tip: Tankless units heat water on demand, meaning there is no end to the amount of your hot water supply.

Water Heater Repair – New Thermostat

Sometimes a water heater will not maintain the correct temperature. Your water may be hot one day, but then get cold the next. This can sometimes be a thermostat issue in your water heater. Thermostats regulate the heat in your water heater. You can set the temperature of you water heater at the thermostat. Over time, thermostats can “stick” and and fail to turn on the boiler to heat the water at the correct temperature. This is often times a quick repair, as we would simply replace the whole thermostat in about an hour. This costs much less than replacing an entire water heater. 

Please give A Plus Plumbing a call so we can diagnose your water heater issue and determine whether we need to replace the whole water heater, or whether we can simply repair it with a new replacement thermostat.

Noisy Water Heater

It’s normal for water heaters to make noise when they are heating up the water. However, sometimes it can sound awfully loud. It may sound as if you have rocks tumbling inside your water heater. This is a sign of minerals building up and clumping together in your water heater. As the water heater heats the water, the rocks of minerals get tossed around, making for tumbling noises. The most we can do in these instances is to flush the water heater to remove as much of the mineral deposits in the tank. However, it’s not possible to remove all of the deposits, especially the big clumps. Over time, these calcium deposits will make your water heater not only loud, but less efficient at heating water. If you tank is making a lot of loud noises due to mineral deposits that cannot be flushed out, it’s likely that your water heater is old enough that it is due to be replaced anyway with a newer and more efficient water heater.
