Why Employ Our Water Heater Repair Services?
Water heaters require regular maintenance and repair over time. One of the most common issues with water heaters is sediment buildup. Limescale and other minerals accumulate along the sides of the tank as the water heats up. If you don’t filter the minerals out of the water heater, they will develop a sediment barrier that settles on the heater and affects its performance.
Aside from inspecting the accumulation of sediments, our plumbers can also check the burner of the water heater on a regular basis. The flame must be blue with yellow tips. If it has a yellow-orange color, it’s an indicator of incomplete burning that results in the poor performance of the water heater and production of harmful carbon monoxide gas. Matt’s Plumbing Services will keep your family safe. Contact us as soon as you notice your water heater is not burning properly.
When to Replace Your Water Heater
Water heaters last up to 12 years or even longer. However, after this long the heater will not be near as efficient and will be prone to failure as it gets older. You should not wait for your heater to fail before you replace it.
Keep in mind that the water heater is one of the top users of energy in your home. It accounts for as much as 25 percent of the energy use at home. As it gets older, and becomes less efficient, the amount of energy it consumes increases over time. This makes the heater more expensive to operate over time.
If you still have a traditional tank-based water heater and do not want to waste water and money heating the water when you are not using it, consider replacing it with a tankless water heater system. It can save you money and at the same time reduce your ecological footprint.
Tankless water heaters are more energy efficient compared to the traditional heating systems. As the name pertains, they don’t have a tank to store water. Instead, it automatically turns on when you turn your faucet to hot. It doesn’t require consistent energy to store, which can result in savings each year.
Do not wait for your water heater to break down to replace it. Contact Matt’s Plumbing Services today and learn more about your water heating options. We will be more than happy to answer any questions about water heater repairs, maintenance, and installation.
