There’s nothing better than a long, hot shower after a long, tiring day! We don’t give much thought to our water heater until it goes out, right? We just count on hot water being there when we need it, although, water heaters have a limited life.
If you no longer have access to hot water, then you are probably looking for fast, effective solutions that restore your hot water as quickly as possible. Our plumbing experts have encountered all types of water heater problems over the years. We can diagnose, locate and resolve any problems quickly and efficiently and make sure that everything is in working order. You should contact Serve Rite Plumbing and Rooter if you notice the following:
In addition to water heater repairs, we also recommend yearly maintenance. Water heater manufacturers recommend the water heater be flushed annually as well as check the condition of the anode rod. Both gas and electric water heaters have a protective anode rod that can become depleted, leading to corrosion and rust-colored water. Sediment inside the tank can lead to bacteria growth and odors. And make strange noises when it breaks off and falls inside the tank.
If your heater is more than ten years old it won’t be long before you start feeling the effects of diminished hot water. Our experts can install a new water heater, with a properly secured gas line. They will install earthquake straps, and check for proper venting.
Installation is best left to professional plumbers who know the ins and outs of your plumbing system. We have a variety of water heater installation packages, so you can find the best fit for your home and budget.
There are lots of different types of water heaters on the market. Some of the more popular styles include tankless water heaters. Tankless technologies use a burner with a high-performance heat exchanger or an electric element matched to a flow rate (typically 3-10 GPM, gallons per minute) and heat only the water you use, as you use it. Today’s showerheads use some 2-3 GPM, so you never run out of hot water.
