Eventually, you will need a plumber in Rosedale, CA, from a trusted local company given how much the average person and household relies on hot water for various tasks. Fortunately, when your water heater needs some attention, The Plumbing Doc is always ready to diagnose the problem and offer an appropriate, affordable solution.
Types of Water Heaters
There are many options with water heaters today. The most common ones are standard gas and electric water heaters. These water heaters have a tank that holds the heated water and distributes it throughout your home. When properly installed and insulated, today's tank-based water heaters can be efficient and reliable.
If you prefer a major boost in efficiency, however, a tankless water heater is worth considering. Also referred to as "on-demand" water heaters, tankless models only provide heated water when it's needed. The result is the potential for significant long-term savings. Additionally, tankless units often last about twice as long as traditional water heaters. Some other types of water heaters available today include:
- Hybrid or heat pump water heaters
- Solar-powered water heaters
- Condensing water heaters that use your natural gas system to heat water
Common Water Heater Issues
You're welcome to call The Plumbing Doc for a water heater repair in Rosedale, CA, whenever your water heater is doing anything it's not supposed to do. When it comes to the issues that tend to be most common with water heaters, these are:
Water temperature issues
Possible culprits include a faulty or worn thermostat, pilot light, or heating element.
Water heater leaks can be caused by a broken or stuck pressure relief valve, a leaking tank, a bad gasket, and other mechanical issues, or loose connections.
Rusty or discolored water is often a sign of tank corrosion. It's typically an indication that the sacrificial anode rod needs replaced.
Strange sounds coming from your water heater are usually an indication of sediment buildup. This is a problem that can be minimized with regular flushing.
