Even if you don’t think much about your water heater, it’s something you rely on every day. So when it starts acting up, it can be frustrating to say the least.
Here are some common problems that plumbers see with water heaters, along with some tips for how to avoid them:
Rust can build up on the inside of your water heater and cause a lot of damage, which is why it’s important to have your tank professionally cleaned once every few years. If you notice rust inside the tank or around the fittings, call in a plumber right away!
2) Leaky pipes:
A leaky pipe can mean big trouble for your home and your wallet—and it can also be a sign that something else is wrong with your plumbing system. Here are some signs that you might need a professional plumber to check out:
- Your toilets are constantly running or filling slowly
- You hear gurgling noises coming from pipes under sinks or tubs
- Water is leaking down walls or through cracks in floors
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are the best option for you if you’re looking to save money and conserve energy. Here are the top three benefits of tankless water heaters:
They save you money
Tankless water heaters are more efficient than traditional heaters, so they use less energy and cost less over time. They also have no standby power draw—meaning that they don’t continue to draw electricity when they’re not being used.
They give you more control over your water temperature
Traditional water heaters store hot water in a tank, which means you can’t easily turn off or adjust the temperature of the water coming out of the faucet. With a tankless heater, however, you can set a target temperature for your hot water and then let it do its job without worrying about wasting energy or paying for extra hot water that isn’t needed at any given moment (or during certain times of day). You can even tweak the settings from your phone!
Tankless water heaters are more efficient than traditional water heaters because they only use the energy necessary to heat the water as it’s being used. That means that if you’re taking a long shower or running the dishwasher at night, a tankless heater will only use enough energy to heat the water that you need in those moments, then shut off until it’s needed again. With a traditional water heater, on the other hand, you would have to pay for all of the energy used while it was working even though most of that energy wasn’t being used at all times. This makes tankless heaters much more cost-effective in the long run—and saving money is always a good thing!
Easy To Install
Tankless heaters are easy to install because they don’t require any plumbing work; rather than storing heated water in an insulated tank like traditional models do, they simply use electricity to heat up cold water passing through them so that it reaches desired temperatures quickly and efficiently without wasting unnecessary amounts of power doing so during the water heating process.
