Water Heater Repair + Replacement
Staten Plumbing Can Help Repair or Replace Your Hot Water Heater.
As your water heater ages, several issues may crop up which will require the services of a professional plumber. We suggest that you establish a regular maintenance plan to extend the life of your water heater system.
- Sediment Buildup – depending on your water supply, sediment will build up in your tank. This needs to be periodically checked and flushed.
- Anode Rods – These should be inspected and replaced periodically to extend the life of your unit.
- Pressure Valve and Expansion Tank – Should be checked regularly.
- Leaks and Drips – May indicate a small problem, like a pressure valve has failed, or a larger problem, indicating that the tank has corroded and needs to be replaced.
- Gas Heater Pilot Light – This should be checked to make sure it is burning properly. A malfunction can cause the buildup of carbon monoxide gas.
Selecting the Right Water Heater
When it comes time to replace your water heater, there are several options to consider. You must first determine how you want your hot water delivered. Do you want endless hot water or do you want it right away? What type of power source is available? If you choose a water storage system, how big should the tank be for your family?
- Tankless Water Heaters take up little space and provide an endless flow of hot water. A bit more expensive than a storage unit, it is also up to 30% more energy efficient. A tankless unit has a limited flow of hot water and may not be sufficient for larger households. Energy supply can be electric, gas or propane. Your new unit may last up to 20 years.
- Storage Water Heaters are the most common and least expensive types. Select a model with a high efficiency rating to minimize heat loss. The size should be suitable for your family, as the hot water will run out and needs to be resupplied after continuous use. Energy supply can be electric, oil, gas or propane. A good unit can last up to 15 years.
- Heat Pumps are the most energy efficient choice. A unit can save up to $300 per year in energy costs. Properly installed, the unit will efficiently move heat from one source to another. If not properly installed, which is too often the case — this type of hot water system can cause more harm than good. This system may last up to 15 years.
- Tankless Coil & Indirect are not a good choice in our warmer climate.
- Solar or Hybrid Water Heating Systems are the most energy efficient, but also the most costly selection. You may need a backup system to provide hot water when you don't have enough sun or storage to maintain your supply. This system can last up to 20 years.
