Most homeowners understand that problems can occur with just about any appliance in their home. In fact, it doesn’t have to be an appliance, it could be a leaking roof, broken window or any other number of things that create a situation where immediate repairs are needed. Unfortunately, many homeowners in Richmond never spend much time contemplating what they would do if they had water heater problems.
The vast majority of people take their water heater for granted. The time has come where we no longer remember the days when water had to be heated before bathing or washing the dishes. This modern convenience certainly makes our lives much easier, but it is still important to understand that water heater problems can occur and should be handled by a professional with the training and experience to safely resolve the problem.
Some of the most common water heater problems include foul smelling water, a leaking tank, noise coming from the water heater, water that is too hot or not hot enough and not enough water in the tank. While many of these water heater problems can be resolved fairly quickly, a tank that is leaking will likely require replacement. Fortunately, today’s water heaters are very dependable and rarely encounter problems, but when they do, it is important to have a professional provide quality repairs or replacement.
If you have a tank water heater, you might even want to consider the benefits of a tankless water heater replacement. Tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand, there is no tank that is filled with water and must be maintained at the desired temperature, just waiting for you to need it. Rather, with a tankless or on demand water heater, water is heated only when you need it, there is no wasted energy. This, of course, means better energy efficiency and a cost savings for the homeowner.
