Hot water heater replacement jobs can cause a bit of stress in our lives, but Crystal Lake Plumber can help reduce that stress and get your hot water working again. It always seems to happen when we least expect it. We have company over and the hot water goes out. Maybe we are in the middle of dinner. Maybe we are walk into the basement or garage to grab something and notice we are suddenly standing in a pool of water.
When it comes to a gas water heater, there are really only a few parts—the tank, the burner assembly, and valves and connection lines. The electric water heater is the same, except it has an ignition module instead of a burner assembly. Lines and valve can be patched or repaired. A burner assembly can be repaired or replaced. You can also replace the ignition of a gas water heater. When a tank goes out, however, you need to replace the hot water heater. The tanks are often warrantied for extended periods of time, so have a licensed plumber handle the hot water heater repairs or hot water heater replacement can end up saving you, as it may be covered by the manufacturer. Manufacturers very seldom provide parts or cover costs associated with anyone other than a professional plumber handling the repairs.
There are some signs you can look for to know whether you have a hot water replacement coming up around the corner. If the hot water is running out faster, it probably means that sediment has built up in the tank and the water heater simply is not holding as much water any more. If you notice any small leaks around the water heater, you can use a solution of soapy water to put on the pipes and valves and see if any bubbles form from the leak. Leaks in the tank will mean a new water heater is necessary.
