Signs of Water Heater Problems
When it comes to water heaters, the most obvious indication of a problem is the lack of hot water. However, there are other signs to watch out for as well, such as:
Unusual noises such as rattling, hissing, or clanging may indicate a faulty water heater or a problem with the heating element. If you notice such noises coming from your water heater, you should call us.
If you notice a puddle of water around your hot water heater, it is usually an indication that there is an issue. It’s best to seek professional assistance to diagnose the problem before the puddle escalates into significant flooding that could cause property damage.
Rust can corrode your water heater tank and contaminate your water supply or cause leakage. If you notice extensive rust on your tank that cannot be easily fixed, you may need to replace your water heater.
Tankless Water Heater vs. Traditional
Is a tankless or traditional water heater right for you? Are you looking to change what you have? We can install and repair both tankless water heaters and traditional water heaters. We can also discuss the differences with you to help decide what’s best for your home.
Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient since they only heat water when it is needed, while traditional water heaters experience standby heat loss, which wastes energy.Get a free quote
Traditional Water Heater
The main difference between a tankless water heater and a traditional water heater is how they heat and store water. Traditional water heaters store hot water in a tank and keep it heated continuously, while tankless water heaters do not store hot water. Instead, they heat water on demand as it flows through the unit using a heat exchanger.
Frequently Asked Questions About Water Heater Installation in Nashua, NH
Who do you call for water heater installation and repair?
Plumbers, such as us, are typically called for water heater installation, replacement, repairs, and maintenance.
Do you need to hire a professional?
when it comes to replacing your water heater, it’s essential to leave it to the experts. Water heaters are bulky, heavy, and require proper disposal, which cannot be done by simply throwing them in the garbage. Professional plumbers have the tools necessary to remove the old unit and install the new one while ensuring that the old unit is disposed of correctly.
A water heater must comply with the energy-efficient standards of your local area, which can change frequently. A professional plumber stays up-to-date with all the codes and standards and can assist you in selecting the appropriate water heater for your home and needs.
When should you replace a water heater?
Typically, it is recommended to replace a water heater if it is more than 10 years old, as this is around the time when they start to deteriorate and become less efficient. However, the lifespan of a water heater can vary depending on factors such as usage, maintenance, and quality of installation. Signs that may indicate it’s time to replace your water heater include a lack of hot water, rusty or metallic-smelling/tasting water, sediment buildup, leaks, and unusual noises such as rattling or hissing. Additionally, upgrading to a more energy-efficient model can help cut down on energy expenses. It is best to consult a professional plumber to assess the condition of your water heater and determine if it needs replacement.
Should I replace my water heater before it fails?
We do recommend replacing your water heater before it fails for two reasons: 1) so you’re not left without hot water until we can get to your home and fix it, and 2) so your current tank doesn’t break or leak causing additional problems throughout the home.
