4 Signs You Need Water Heater Repair
1. Loud noises - Not all sounds coming from your water heater mean the same thing. If you hear rumbling or grinding, you could need water heater replacement, but snapping and popping just mean there's been sediment build-up in your unit and it just needs a thorough cleaning.
2. Low water pressure - Another symptom of sediment build-up can be low water pressure. If all your water pressure is slow, it could be your pipes but if it's just your hot water then contact our Nashville water heater repair experts.
3. Some cold water in your hot shower - It might not seem like much, but if there's a leak on the inside of your water heater, you could get incoming cold water mixing with your outgoing hot water.
4. Rusty colored water - If there is the reddish/brown discoloration to your hot water, then contact our Nashville water heater repair professionals. It could be that the corrosion has spread to your tank, but it's more likely that we just need to replace the anode rod and your unit should be good to go.
Signs You Need Water Heater Replacement
1. Old age - Traditional tank water heaters usually last around 10 years while tankless water heaters can go for 20. If your water heater is much older than their respective life-spans and need repair consult our Nashville water heater installation experts because a new unit will be cheaper than more money into repair.
2. Repair after repair - While in any individual scenario water heater repair may seem like the cheaper option. It isn't the cost effective solution if your unit keeps needing repair.
3. A damaged tank - While other parts can be fixed or replaced pretty easily, fixing the tank from leaks or corrosion might cost more than the water heater is worth so it may be time to consider a new water heater installation.
4. Utility bills on the rise - If the utility that powers your water heater is steadily on the rise, it may be time to consult our Nashville water heater replacement specialists. As the units age, they'll become less efficient over time and it could be towards the end of its use.
Choosing the Right Water Heater Installation for Your Needs
There is a fair amount of debate over which type of water heater is "best": gas or electric. In truth, there is no one "best" water heater, only that which is best for the individual house. Below we discuss these two most popular water heater options in Nashville TN.
Both gas and electric water heaters have their pros and cons:
- Natural gas tends to be the preferred fuel source, as it is not only efficient but also quite affordable and clean-burning, for a fossil fuel. It also requires gas piping and proximity to a gas main, however. This raises a few concerns and issues for some.
- Electricity is available just about everywhere and is a strong alternative. Not every homeowner will have access to natural gas, and not every homeowner will want to pipe a combustible fuel into their home. However, keep in mind that, despite their efficiency, electric water heaters can cost more to operate because of the price of electricity.
Tank vs. Tankless Heaters
The other great debate with water heaters is whether or not a hot water tank should be used. Traditionally, tank water heaters were the most common type in homes. They heat water and store that hot water in a tank until it is needed. This means that there is a reservoir of hot water at the ready. It also means standby energy loss, though, as some of the heat in that water is bound to transfer through the tank and into the air surrounding it.
Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, face no such energy loss. Why? Simple: they don’t use a tank at all. Tankless water heaters are also called "on-demand" water heaters, due to the fact that they heat only the water that you need, as it is called for. This helps to boost efficiency. These systems cost much more upfront than tank models, but also offer great energy savings over time.
Sound Advice & Professional Water Heater Installation
Regardless of the type of water heater that you choose to use in your home, it is vital that your water heater installation in Nashville is completed by a trained professional. Only then can you hope for your system to operate as efficiently, reliably, and safely as possible. We can complete a water heater installation for your brand new home, or your water heater replacement when your existing system finally gives out on you.
We also offer two annual water heater courtesy safety inspections to members of the Michael’s Club Service program. These inspections can help prolong the life of your water heater and allow our technicians to catch and address minor issues before they become major problems. In addition to these twice-annual water heater inspections, members of the Michael’s Club Service program receive 15% off services, no service fees, and priority scheduling!
If you want to get the best performance possible from your water heater for the longest amount of time, scheduling routine water heater maintenance is your best bet. Even so, of course, your water heater will run into trouble from time to time. This is just the nature of mechanical systems.
