FAQs about hot water system repairs
To some extent, each water heater unit and hot water system will differ from each other. The only thing they have in common is the type and common brands; everything else in the system is unique. Thus, each hot water system repair job will have a different cost. To give you an idea: the licensed plumbers would consider the location and type of property, the severity and complexity of the hot water issues, the hot water system brands, and the materials and equipment needed to address the issue. Keep in mind that some major brands may have unique parts that would also affect the repair costs. Another thing to remember is the condition of the existing system; hot water units that have experienced DIY repairs may have had the warranty voided and caused other issues down the line. Contact our hot water specialist at Rowson’s Plumbing Services for expert advice and better estimates.
A water heater’s lifespan is determined by the quality of the water in your location, how often you use it, and how often you maintain it.
The following factors affect a water heater’s lifespan:
- Your water heater and where you live:
- A conventional gas-powered water heater’s projected life is between 8 and 12 years, but this varies greatly depending on where you reside.
- The amount of sediment in your tank influences its longevity. If you live in a sediment-rich location, this will shorten its lifespan.
- Electric water heaters have a somewhat longer lifespan.
- The frequency of water heater maintenance affects its lifespan. Regular maintenance is advised to keep it in good shape.
- Tankless heaters might last twice as long as traditional gas or electric storage heaters since they do not have to store and heat water when not in use.
No. Your system involves a complex plumbing network and heating elements. Amateurs should never handle these. Some water heaters involve gas that could lead to gas leaks, gas poisoning, and even fires. Electric water heaters could pose a danger of electrocution and also start a fire. It is best to leave water heater repairs to our experienced team of hot water plumbers and gas fitters.
The best time to call a plumber is when you detect signs of hot water issues. Call a licensed plumber when you have low water pressure on the hot water tap but adequate pressure on the cold taps. When you have inconsistent water temperatures, call an experienced plumber. When your shower spits out discoloured water, call a qualified plumber. When you hear weird noises from the storage tank or water pipes, call an expert plumber. When hot water stops running or takes too long to recover, call the emergency plumbers. And finally, call us right now to schedule routine maintenance on your hot water system.
