Conventional Water Heaters
Conventional water heaters, commonly referred to as storage water heaters, work by converting cold water into hot and then storing it in a ready-to-use tank. When you turn on your plumbing’s hot water tap, heated water is released from the top of the…
One of the biggest problems with a conventional water heater is its lack of energy efficiency, especially when compared to its tankless cousin. Since water is always being heated in order to stay at a certain temperature, energy is always being used. If you have to replace your water heater, look for thermal resistance values of R-12 to R-25 to help reduce heat loss and keep energy bills as low as possible.
Tankless Water Heaters
On demand, or tankless, water heaters consist of a heating elements that when activated convert cold water to hot water instantly. There are numerous different types and sizes, with smaller ones installed next to the fixture that it feeds and…
Opting for a tankless water heater can save the typical family up to $100 or more each year thanks to energy use reduction. For example, homes that use 41 gallons of hot water or less a day, can save about 24% to 34% more energy than a conventional system. By installing smaller units next to the fixtures that use hot water, you could save even more energy; upwards of 27% to 50%.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
While heat pump water heaters aren’t very popular, they do a fantastic job of reducing energy consumption. They use a very small amount of electricity to shift water from one storage area to another, which generates enough heat to make hot water, instead of…
Solar-powered Water Heaters
Solar powered water heaters are very similar to a conventional hot water system, except unlike using either electricity or gas to power the heating element, it uses the power of the sun. There are two main types of active solar water heating systems, direct…
When buying a solar heating system there are a few key factors that should help you with making the right choice. This includes knowing the energy efficiency of systems you are considering, exactly how much access to the sun you have in the area, and you want to determine that you have the correct size system for the space. Finally, be sure that you’re not in violation of any building codes or regulations before beginning installation.
Water Heater Repair
When possible we will repair your misfunctioning water heater; assuming there isn’t the risk of a future leak that may cause water damage to your property. If your water isn’t hot or comes out lukewarm, contact our team to assess and diagnose the problem. Please note that water heaters most commonly last between eight and 12 years. If you have…
Typically, water heater failures are caused by the following:
Water can leak at a number of fail points in both conventional and tankless heaters. If the leak is small, it may simply cause corrosion that over time will cause the unit to fail and likely significant water leakage. If this happens, you may need to replace the unit. If you notice water leaking from your unit, turn the water off at the valve and contact us immediately.
Water heater tanks include what’s known as a sacrificial anode, which is designed to prevent internal rust. This highly active rod is made of metal and, as its name suggests, its job is to erode so that your water heater’s internal parts don’t. They should be replaced roughly once a year and if they’re not, they will cause rust buildup and cascading system failure over time.
Sediment deposit effects conventional and tankless water heaters where deposit buildup within the heat exchanger plug outlets; causing lower water pressure. The most common cause of these deposits is from having hard water. Fortunately, as long as there hasn’t been too much internal damage, we should be able to clear the blockage and have your hot water flowing like normal in no time.
When it comes to water heater maintenance, the trick to keeping your water heater working for 10 years, or longer, is to have it properly maintained. In order to keep your heating unit in tiptop shape, and never going without hot water, you should have it professionally serviced every year. We perform an inspection of the pressure valve, we flush the tank, check the pilot, and give the unit a thorough inspection.
Checking the pressure valve means that we look at the pressure valve, a safety feature that conventional gas and electric water heaters offer. It is this device’s duty relieve overpressurization and if the valve doesn’t work correctly, there is a chance that the unit could explode.
Next, we’ll flush the tank. We do this to prevent sediment buildup within the tank, which can clog up the system causing efficiency and water flow problems.
We then check the pilot light. As part of our tune-up checklist, we check the pilot light in gas units to ensure it functions as expected.
Finally, we inspect the unit as a whole. We give the entire hot water heater system a full inspection inside and out. we’re looking for damaged parts, potential dangers/safety hazards, and leaking water.
Water Heater Installation
Before deciding on a new water heater for your home, it’s a good idea for you to familiarize yourself with the different options available. Most homeowners typically buy a conventional gas- or electric-powered hot water heater. However, tankless units are gaining steam thanks to improved functionality and more affordable options. We also install…
When choosing a conventional storage water heater, you’re buying traditional unit and the most popular water heating device found in most homes. These units work by storing a ready reservoir of heated water in a tank ranging from 30 to 80 gallons.
Tankless water heaters, commonly referred to as on-demand heaters, do exactly this and provide hot water instantly; when you need it. Instead of storing ready-to-use hot water in a tank, this type of heating unit instantly turns cold water to hot (however warm or hot you want it).
Heat pump water heaters, unlike a conventional or instant-hot water heaters, work thanks to a heat pump moving heat from one place to another; using two- to three-times less energy.
