No one likes standing in a hot shower that suddenly turns cold. Another problem that could be troubling you is that your shower’s water flow isn’t what you’re used to, and you’ve already tried installing a new showerhead. Many issues could result in an ineffective water heater. Fortunately enough, a plumbing expert from Central Plumbing, Heating and Air can arrive in minutes and diagnose the issue.
Water Heater Repair in Doylestown
Some issues could be:
- Pilot light outage
- Thermostat failure
- Gas control valve failure
- Rust and corrosion build up
- Sediment deposit, creating rust colored water
- Pressure release valve
The average age of a water heater is twelve to fifteen years and it may still be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. Past that time, it could be time for you to replace your water heater and upgrade to a conventional or tankless unit.
Water Heater Replacement in Doylestown
You may want to replace your water heater if the issues are more than a replacement part or two. The water quality is poor, there are frequent leaks, or the water fluctuates in pressure or temperature. Maybe the unit is older than fifteen years and the repairs would cost more than a new water heater. There are several options to decide:
- Storage capacity
- Flow volume
- Tankless vs. conventional
- Fuel type (natural gas, LP or electric)
- Function (whole house or point of use)
Central Plumbing, Heating and Air can assess your needs and will offer you a free estimate. A trained plumbing professional can install a new unit and discard the old one. The installation will come with a lifetime guarantee and a limited warranty on the water heater. A new unit will even save you money in the long run with energy consumption.
Either taking a long, hot shower, washing dishes in the kitchen sink, or washing clothes in the washer, hot water is important in every household. Why sacrifice your comfort when an upgrade can save you money in the long run?
