The water heater is by far the most used and yet underrated appliance in a home. Receiving hot water at any time for washing, showers, dishes and laundry means that the water heater can sometimes be taken for granted. That is, until it breaks. At A&A Plumbing we don’t want anyone to be stuck taking a cold shower. When you call one of our experienced San Antonio plumbers, you can expect fast and efficient service that gets to the source of the problem.
Common Water Heater Problems
Being one of the most used appliances in your home, the water heater takes a lot of wear and tear over the years. A typical lifespan of a water heater is about 10-15 years. In this time there are a number of problems that can arise and require professional attention. From experiencing a breakdown, finding wear and tear on the physical tank A&A Plumbing is experienced enough to do the job right the first time.
If your water heater is acting up unexpectedly, only producing hot water sporadically or producing really hot water when it’s not needed, there could be a problem with the thermostat in the tank. The water heater is controlled by this interior thermostat and if that is beginning to act funny, it is definitely time to look into repairs.
Should I Repair or Replace it?
Since the normal life span of a water heater is 10-15 years it can be rest assured that at some point in your life you’ll need to replace it. While some problems can be easily fixed with a simple repair, once the tank is beginning to age, replacing it is often the best choice.
More modern water heaters are more efficient and will require less repairs in the future. A newer unit will ultimately save you money in the end as it will work better and need less maintenance in the long run.
