If you’ve noticed your hot water tank has become less efficient over the last few months, does not provide enough hot water for your family’s needs, or is making noises that are concerning, you should call Tap-Roots for professional water heater repair in your Vancouver home.
Tap-Roots will come out promptly and take a look at your hot water system to determine if it can be efficiently repaired, and if so, they’ll take care of the repair right away. While hot water tanks and heating systems are not designed to last forever, with proper maintenance and regular care, they can provide your home with many years of efficient hot water. Routine maintenance is key in getting all the life you can out of your system before having to replace it.
If your Tap-Roots technician determines that your system is no longer able to provide you with cost-efficient hot water, or the your system simply cannot be repaired, they will recommend a newer, more efficient model, such as a conventional or tankless water heater.
In many cases, a repair is the best solution to your water heating issues. There are several small problems, such as heating element replacement, valve replacement, anode rod replacement or cleaning of the burners that can easily be taken care of in a cost-efficient manner.
A good rule of thumb to apply is to ask for an estimate of the repair, and if the repair is less than half the cost of the new system and installation combined, and your technician expects you to get a few more years of service from it, the repair is most likely the best solution. For exceptional water heater repair in Vancouver, Tap-Roots is able to come out right away to fix your system.
In some situations, replacing your water heater is the best solution. Examples of indicators that your water tank should be replaced include: leaking from the tank that is compromising your surrounding structures, sediment buildup that is causing rusty or metallic-tasting water, or any other indicator that causes your repair technician to believe your system may not last very much longer. In this case, a water heater repair would not be a good choice of your Vancouver home.
The good news is, even if you require a new installation, your choices today are far greater than when your last system was installed, and newer models provide much more energy efficiency.
The tankless water heater is a great example of modern technological advances in water heating. Many homeowners and business owners are making the switch to tankless models, as their energy efficiency and convenience just can’t be matched. With the tankless models, hot water is not stored but is instead heated as it passes through the unit, providing instant hot water to your home or business.
