There is no doubt that you do not have to be a rocket scientist to change out a water heater, however, there are certain mistakes that may be made by the less experienced that could result in exorbitant financial loss or worse.
At Mark Tango Plumbing we know water heaters and we can provide water leak detection services. We know when water heaters can be repaired, when they need to be replaced.
We can take care of water heater installation in a few hours so you do not have to spend all day Sunday agonizing over whether or not the ten frustrating hours you spent on Saturday installing the new water heater will be problem free. Frustrate yourself on the golf course, the repercussions have nothing to do with gas leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning, electrical shocks, or water damage.
So what are the symptoms you should look for when it comes to determining if you are having water heater issues?
My water heater is showing symptoms…, which water heater should I have installed?
This is what it boils down to.
There are two types of water heaters… Traditional Tank water heaters and tankless water heaters. The heat source for either type of water heater can be gas, electric, propane, or solar. The decision that is in your hands is Traditional or Tankless. In many cases, it will not be cost effective to switch from traditional to tankless, however, it is certainly something that we will discuss with you upon seeing your specific situation. As for the heat source, this is also something that we can review, but here again, it is usually not very cost effective to change the heat source unless it is part of a bigger project. Surely, if you are planning to overhaul your heating system or renovate, it is quite possible that changing types and heat sources can and should be made. One way or another, we will advise you as to what is best for you. Call us at 781-944-8043 to discuss your water heater reapir or installation options.
A simple suggestion to extend the life of your water heater: Maintenance.
