Tampa Bay Plumber | Water Heater Repair and Installation
Water heaters require regular maintenance and repair over time as they are used on a routine basis. One of the most common issues with water heaters is sediment buildup. Limescale and other minerals accumulate along the sides of the tank as the water heats up. If you don’t filter the minerals out of the water heater, they will develop a sediment barrier that settles on the heater and affects its performance.
Aside from inspecting the accumulation of sediments, our plumbers can also check the burner of the water heater on a regular basis. The flame must be blue with yellow tips to get the best performance out of your water heater. If it has a yellow-orange color, it’s an indicator of incomplete burning that results in the poor performance of the water heater and production of harmful carbon monoxide gas.
When to Repair Your Water Heater?
Water heaters can last many years, but as time goes on the heater will not be near as efficient and will be prone to failure. You should not wait for your heater to fail before you replace it. Because water heaters are one of the top users of energy in your home, accounting for as much as 25 percent of the energy use at home; it is important to replace the unit if you start to notice it becoming less efficient. This will cause the amount of energy it consumes to increases over time making the heater more expensive to operate over time.
If you still have a traditional tank-based water heater and do not want to waste water and money heating the water when you are not using it, consider replacing it with a tank-less water heating system. It can save you money and at the same time reduce your ecological footprint. Tank-less water heaters are more energy efficient as compared to traditional heating systems. As the name pertains, they don’t have a tank to store water. Instead, they automatically turn on when you turn your faucet to hot. It doesn’t require consistent energy to store, which can result in large savings each year.
