In today's world, a water heater is a necessity. We use them in our homes and offices for purposes such as cooking, cleaning, bathing, even space heating. It is important that you make the best call when it comes to choosing, maintaining or replacing your water heaters. Here is how you keep up with your water heater.
Water heaters are like phones, we use them every day for many different purposes. To get the best and most efficient use out of them, it is important that we choose wisely, get regular maintenance or even get help when replacing them.
Choosing A Water Heater
The good thing about having to choose a water heater is that you will probably only have to do so once or twice in your lifetime. There are a variety of water heaters to choose from including:
- Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater
- Tankless Water Heater
- Heat Pump Water Heater
- Solar Powered Water Heater
- Condensing Water Heater
Your choice of water heater will depend on your budget and needs. For example, a conventional storage tank water heater will be quite economical if you are not trying to break your budget. But if you use a lot of hot water, this might not be the best fit for you because this style of water heater only holds so much water at a time. On the other hand, if you are looking to manage your energy usage and essentially cut down on high energy bills, a tankless water heater or perhaps heat pump or solar powered water heater would be best suited. Many of these, however, are very expensive and require a large initial spend.
If you're out shopping for a new water heater and need help installing it, give us a call! In addition, we can visit your property and evaluate the energy efficiency of your home’s water heater and help you avoid high energy bills.
Maintaining Your Water Heater
If you already have a water heater then that's great! Your only job now is to take care of it. Remember, a non-functioning water heater is as good as a broken air conditioner on a hot summer day.
- You want to make sure that your water heater is set in the right location, at the right temperature. This is to avoid leaking or any other damages that may result from a leak.
- Schedule regular maintenance for your water heater. In some cases, a water heater issue may be minor and can be resolved by turning your water heater on and off. In other cases, there may be sediment buildup that needs flushing out or a repair that needs to be done.
