Water Heater Repair & Water Heater Replacement
Water Heater Basics
Replacing your water heater is the last thing you think about when stepping into the shower, that is unless you take a cold shower. If you’re like most people, ready and ample hot water keeps your household running smoothly. Everything from showers, baths, laundry to dishwashing, water heaters are the mainstay of any busy household. Our dedicated plumbers insure that you have hot water when you need it most. We service, install water heaters. We also provide emergency plumbing service in the event your water heater calls it quits.
Conventional Tank Water Heaters
Most water heaters are conventional tanks. A conventional tank is a large cylindrical tank in your home full of hot water at all times. How it works is, when you open any faucet in the hopes of using hot water, the tank circulates that water to the faucet you just opened or "turned on". So does the water stay warm or hot? Conventional tanks use electric, natural gas, propane, oil, solar and in some cases geothermal power as an energy source to heat the water.
Solar Water Heaters
For some areas with an abundance of sunshine (a wink, a nod, and a double finger point in your direction - hello Arizona!) solar powered water heaters can be used. Solar collectors are installed outside the home, typically on the roof or pretty darn close to it. They collect heat from the sun and transfer it into the water you use. Similar to conventional tanks, solar water heaters use a storage tank that can be placed inside or outside the home.
Hot Water Circulating Pump
How to avoid the annoying, "Is the water hot yet?" question. Hot water circulating pumps are used to eliminate that pause or wait for heated water to come through your open faucet. With a conventional tank the water is piped from the water heater into your open faucet. That alone can take a little bit of time. Once the faucet is closed the water heater stops heating the water used in that particular pipe and the water cools down. With a circulating pump however, that water never cools down and you're guaranteed immediate hot water every time you open a faucet.
