Don’t ignore your water heater. It may be easy to forget about your water heater, until the water runs cold, however, water heaters need maintenance and replacement after so many years of use. If your unit is more than 10 years old, and it’s showing its age – leaking, producing rusty water, or not heating water at all, then it maybe a good idea to replace it. If you neglect to repair or replace your water heater, your home is at risk for costly damages. In other instances, water heater repair maybe just what you need. Always make sure you use a plumber that is licensed and knowledgeable about your City’s Codes and Requirements before installing or repairing your home’s water heater.
Water Heater Repair
If your water heater is less than 10 years old but something seems out of the ordinary, water heater repair might be a good choice. Repair can also be in order to correct a poor installation job from another plumbing or water heater company. It is important that your unit is connected correctly to your home’s system and in compliance with your City’s Code or Requirements. Do not settle for an unsatisfactory installation; it can be a costly mistake.
Water Heater Accessories
Adding water heater accessories is a great way to prevent flooding and damage to your home. Take a look at your home’s unit to ensure that you have some of the basic accessories. You want to make sure at the very least that you have a drip pan to hold any water in case of a small leak. A FloodStop is another beneficial accessory. Installing a FloodStop on your water supply can help protect your home from flooding. When a leak is detected, the FloodStop will sound an alarm and automatically stop the water supply to your water heater, preventing costly damage to your home.
Consider a Tankless Water Heater
If you’re replacing your old tank water heater, consider upgrading to a tankless unit. Tankless water heaters use up to 20% less energy and can increase your home’s value. Another benefit of the tankless system is instant hot water. You no longer have to wait for hot water, saving your family money on not only energy usage but also water consumption as well.
