Water Heater Installation

Regardless of whether you are seeking gas or tankless water heater installation, we can assist with any model you prefer.

Water Heater Maintenance

Contrary to popular belief, water heaters require annual maintenance to extend their longevity and keep them working in top condition.

Annual Maintenance for Tank Water Heaters
For electric or gas water heater maintenance, it is good practice to flush sediment buildup from the tank annually. Sediment in your tank can negatively affect hot water quality and reduce efficiency. This is because the residue interferes with the heater’s ability to heat the water, thus requiring more fuel to reach the same heat increase.

Annual Maintenance for Tankless Water Heaters
By definition, tankless water heaters do not have tanks, and so there’s no chance for sediment to buildup. However, because tankless water heaters operate through a series of pipes in the unit, limescale can accumulate on the pipes and heating element, reducing the heater’s efficiency and driving up running costs. Economy Drain Cleaning & Plumbing can help with your tankless water heater installation and maintenance.

Hot Water Heater Replacement

Depending on your water heater’s design, location, maintenance, and installation quality, the life expectancy of the typical water heater is 8-12 years.

Signs that you might need a replacement hot water heater system include:

  • An old unit. If you don’t know the age of your unit, you can find out by searching for the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker near the top. Usually, the first two numbers represent the year, but these stickers often vary. Check the manufacturer’s website for more information and get a water heater replacement if it’s more than 10 years old.
  • Rusty water. If your hot water looks or tastes rusty, the inside of your water heater might be rusting. To find out if your hot water has rust, fill three or four 5-gallon containers. If rust is coming from the hot water only, you probably need a new unit.
  • Not enough hot water. If your water keeps going cold quickly, you may want to invest in a new water heater if adjustments and repairs are ineffective. The most common sign that your water heater will soon fail is a chronic lack of hot water. Sediment accumulates over time in water heaters, separating water from the heat source.

Water Heater Repair

When water heaters are on the fritz, it may also just need a few repairs. Common everyday problems with water heaters include:

  • Your water heater leaking
  • Strange smells
  • Rumbling and rattling due to sediment buildup
  • Inconsistent water temperatures

If you notice any of these issues, reach out to Economy Drain Cleaning & Plumbing for gas and hot water heater repairs.
