Something else to consider…

Even if your water heater is fixable, how old is it? Water heaters do have a life span. It’s usually between 10 and 12 years. If your heater is getting up there in years, or looking a little worse for wear, perhaps funds would be better spent having a new one installed – rather than sinking money into a unit that may be on it’s last leg.

How to tell if your water heater needs replacement…

The most common reason for replacing a tank-type water heater is a leak in the tank itself. If the heater is leaking, check to see if the top of the heater is dry (don’t get electrocuted if it’s electric). If the top of the water heater is dry, and there are no visible signs of a leak, odds are the tank itself is leaking and needs replacement. If the top of the heater is wet, water may be coming from a hot or cold supply connection or another fitting. This may be a fixable problem. We can help. We’re Always Open.

Conventional vs Tankless

There are two basic types of residential water heaters: Conventional tank-type water heaters – offer a reservoir (storage tank) of hot water and Tankless or demand-type water heaters – heat water directly without the use of a tank.
There has been plenty of publicity surrounding tankless heaters and their benefits lately, but if your home was originally plumbed with a conventional tank-type water heater, it might be best to stay with your current system type. There are many factors to consider when deciding wether to switch. A Blue Plumbing technician can discuss these options with you.

Adjusting Gas Water Heater Temperature

  • You can produce more hot water and take longer showers, even while using a higher volume fixture such as a clothes washing machine, simply by turning up the temperature control knob on your tank-type unit. Caution: Always adjust the temperature in very small increments. In other words, only turn the thermostat dial up slightly – then wait to see if this higher water temperature is sufficient (or too hot!) before turning it up any further. The elderly, handicapped and children are always more likely to be burned by scalding water.
  • You can also increase the amount of usable hot water by upgrading the size or capacity of your tank-type system, For example, upgrade to a 50 gallon unit from a 40 gallon one. Some size restrictions may apply.
  • Unless you have lots of people living in the same house, or some who take very long showers, your conventional tank system should be adequate. Blue Plumbing & Drain Cleaning has several high efficiency tank-style water heaters to select from. Call for for more information 928-775-9388.
