Common FAQ’s About Water Heaters
The life expectancy of your water heater depends on the type of system it is and your maintenance routine. With proper maintenance, standard tank water heaters typically last 7-10 years while tankless water heaters can last 15-20 years. Without proper maintenance, these time spans can be significantly shorter. Schedule a maintenance appointment today to help extend the life of your water heater and keep it running most efficiently.
As big and bulky as they are from the outside, electric and gas storage water heaters are expertly engineered systems. In a gas-powered system, cold water enters the water heater and is heated by a gas burner once the homeowner turns on the hot water tap. The principle of heat rising pushes hot water to the top of the tank and into your home as cold water enters and displaces it. An electric-powered system utilizes the same process, except that an electric element heats the water.
Several warning signs may indicate that your water heater is on its last legs. Age is an important factor on its health; you can find its age by looking at the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker near the uppermost part of the water heater. It is wise to consider replacement if you find that your water heater is more than a decade old, especially if you are also experiencing a lack of hot water, a decline in hot water quality, a leaky tank, or unusual sounds coming from your water heater. Give us a call if you identify any of these red flags to avoid the frustration of a complete water heater failure, before it’s too late!
Cold weather chills your home’s pipes and the water that travels through them to the water heater unit. This colder water takes longer to heat before arriving to your faucet. You can try increasing the temperature of your water heater’s thermostat a few degrees to solve this problem. If this doesn’t remedy the issue, try applying insulation to the system or warming up the room in which the unit is located. Call our water heater professionals if your system is still cutting your family short on the hot water you deserve even after making these changes!
