Types of Water Heaters

There are many different types of water heaters available. The type of water heater you have will depend on the age of your home, the available space, and your personal preferences. 

Tank water heaters are the most common type of water heater. They are known for their reliability and affordability. These water heaters store hot water in a tank. When you turn on a faucet, the water that comes out is drawn from the tank.

Tankless water heaters don't have a storage tank. Instead, they heat water on demand. This means that you can take a shower and run the washing machine at the same time. Tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient than traditional water heaters because they aren't constantly heating water that isn't being used. Tankless water heaters are an excellent choice for households with more than two people. They are also a good choice for households that frequently have guests or run appliances that need a lot of water.

Signs You Need Water Heater Repair

It's easy to forget about your water heater unless it isn't working. When your water heater isn't working, it's important to deal with the problem as soon as possible. 

There are a number of signs that your water heater needs repair, including:

  • No hot water: The most obvious sign that your water heater needs repair is a lack of hot water. If you turn on a faucet and there is no hot water, call for service right away.
  • Rusty water: If you notice that your water has a reddish or brown tinge, it could be an indication that your water heater is leaking and needs repair.
  • Water heater leaks: If you notice water stains on the ceiling or floor or notice a leak, call for service right away. Water heater leaks can cause a lot of damage if not repaired.
  • Visible cracks or dents: If you notice that the water heater is dented or there are cracks in the tank, it's a good indication that your water heater needs repair.

When to Replace a Water Heater

It's hard to imagine life without a water heater. However, your water heater won't last forever. If your water heater is older than 10 years, it's time to start thinking about replacing it. Older water heaters are less energy-efficient and more likely to break down. When your water heater is older than 10 years, you should seriously consider replacing it with a new, energy-efficient water heater.

When to Repair a Water Heater

It's not always clear when a water heater needs to be repaired or replaced. When you are not sure if your water heater needs repair or replacement, you should consider a few things. For example, you should consider how old your water heater is and how often it has broken down in the past.

If you are not sure if your water heater needs repair or replacement, call Miller & Sons Plumbing. Our experienced plumbers will come to your home and assess your water heater. We will look for signs of damage and inspect the tank and all parts of the water heater to determine if it can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced.

When to Flush a Water Heater

Flushing a water heater is necessary when the water coming out of your faucet has a brownish or reddish tinge. Flushing your water heater helps to clear out any impurities that have built up in your water heater and are clouding the water. When you need to flush your water heater, you should hire a professional plumber to do the job.
