Most of us take our water heaters for granted. It’s only when we take a cold shower or try to wash the dishes with no hot water that we really think about them. Most hot water heaters are hidden away in a closet or a corner of the basement, so it’s a case of out of sight, out of mind.
Water Heater Experts
At Hansen Plumbing, we are water heater experts. We repair and install several different kinds of water heaters, depending on your needs and budget. These include:
- Tankless Water Heaters
- Electric Water Heaters
- Gas Water Heaters
You may want to do some research on your own about the various types, but we can also go over the pros ad cons of each type with you. If you need a new water heater, we will also ask about how many people live in your home, whether you use the tub or the shower, do you have a dishwasher, etc. This is so we can help determine the size of the water heater you need.
Is Your Water Heater Leaking?
A water heater leaking from the bottom can be a telltale sign you need a new water heater. Over the years, water heaters can corrode from the inside, and start leaking from the bottom. If you have a puddle of water under your water heater, give us a call.
If there is water dripping from the vertical piping next to your water heater, you may need a new expansion tank. If your water never gets hot, it may be an issue with the thermostat, the gas ignition, or your electric. We will always check for small problems first, before recommending replacing your water heater.
If your water heater is more than 10 years old, you may want to be on the lookout for issues. As a rule of thumb, tank water heaters last about 8-12 years.
