Most people decide to get their water heater fixed once it no longer produces hot water, or water is flowing out of it because of a break in the water heater unit. Don’t panic when water heater issues occur, and make sure the plumber you call works with a company who has been around for years, and knows the industry.
Don’t call just any plumber! Make sure you read online reviews and check out their website for previous work examples to make sure they are experienced. But most importantly make sure they are licensed, bonded, and insured to know they are an actual plumber.
To make a water heater function properly for as long as possible, first make sure that your home is not producing hard water that will be running through your water heater. This will cause clogs and other issues that over time a plumber will need to clean or replace. This is typically a tankless water heater unit problem, but a plumber will need to disassemble to unit and clean everything with special tools for the job.
Most people want to but the cheapest hot water heater unit they can find. You get what you pay for with water heaters, and all cheap water heaters absorb much more energy than high-efficiency units. Save yourself money over time on energy bill by using a tankless, solar, or high quality tank units. Check the Energy Factor label on the side of the unit before buying and ask a professional about the electric consumption.
