If your home, building, complex or facility needs water heater repair or new water heater installation, please contact us or other plumbing experts to assist. Do not attempt to repair or install a water heater yourself, because it can result in serious injury or damage to the building.

Hot water is one of those things we take for granted, but immediately miss when it’s gone. We use it every day for washing our hands, bodies, clothes, dishes and other purposes.

Unfortunately, there is never a good time for water heater failure. But there are things you can do to ensure a long lifespan of your water heater, ultimately saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint.

 

Things to Know:

  • Most water heaters have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years
  • If your water heater is more than 15 years old, it’s time to get a new one
  • New natural gas and electric water heaters are more energy efficient than older water heaters
  • Make sure there is adequate insulation around your water heater (newer natural gas and electric water heaters now have added insulation built into them)
  • If your water is unable to get hot, first check the temperature control on the water heater. If the temperature control is correct but you’re unable to get hot water to the tap, contact us or a plumbing professional.
  • If your water pressure has been low lately, please call us so that we can perform leak detection tests or other analyses
  • In many cases it is not a good idea to pursue a water heater repair or water heater installation if you are not a plumbing professional
  • TDT Plumbing does tank and tankless water heater repairs and installation

 

Recommended Preventative Maintenance

Prevent hot water problems by scheduling yearly routine maintenance for your water heater. Most water heaters have an operational lifespan of 10 to 15 years, but if you have had your water heater for more than 10 years, it would be wise to hire a trusted plumber to perform a preventative maintenance evaluation that will include flushing and refilling the water heater tank, testing the temperature and pressure valve, checking the burner and looking for evidence of corrosion around fittings.

These are good preventative measures that can help you avoid the frustration of not having hot water for your morning shower. Additionally, scheduling a preventative maintenance check or installing a new water heater in your home or building will reduce the carbon footprint by saving water, natural gas and electricity and can also prevent spontaneous and inconvenient hot water shortages.
