How to Maintain Your Water Heater

Because water heaters are always on and using energy to heat water, they can wear out over time. However, there are some things you can do to help make your water heater last longer and save you money on your energy bills. For example, you can adjust the thermostat to lower settings, use a tankless water heater, or install a water heater blanket.

If you do need to have your water heater repaired or replaced, make sure you call a professional plumber. Improper repairs can make the problem worse, and installing a water heater incorrectly can lead to an accident, including a fire. Our plumbers are trained to do the job right.

Commonly Asked Questions

What is the Average Lifespan of a Water Heater?

The average lifespan of a water heater is typically between 8 to 12 years. However, this can vary depending on factors such as the quality of the water heater, regular maintenance, and usage. It's important to keep track of the age of your water heater and consider replacement options as it nears the end of its lifespan.

What Are the Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater?

Tankless water heaters offer several benefits compared to traditional tank-style water heaters. They provide hot water on demand, which means you don't have to wait for a tank to fill up. This can result in energy savings and lower utility bills. Tankless water heaters also take up less space and have a longer lifespan compared to tank-style water heaters.

How Often Should Water Heater Be Serviced

Water heaters should be serviced at least once a year, and gas, electric, and tankless water heaters should be flushed every 6–12 months. Flushing the tank is the most essential part of water heater maintenance. Sediment buildup can cause the water heater to work harder and run less efficiently, leading to higher utility bills. Over time, sediment buildup can cause loss of water pressure or corrosion that leads to holes in the tank.

Yes, we offer emergency water heater repair services. We understand that water heater issues can arise at any time, and we are available 24/7 to provide prompt and reliable repairs. If you are experiencing a water heater emergency, don't hesitate to give us a call.

Signs You Need Water Heater Repair

It's important to pay attention to your water heater and know the signs that it needs repair. If you hear a loud banging noise coming from your water heater, it could be a loose or broken thermocouple, a device that controls the heat level. The same goes for a high-pitched whistling sound, which indicates a loose or broken pressure valve. If you notice water around your water heater, it could be a loose or broken drain valve.

Other signs that your water heater needs repair include:

  • No hot water - The most obvious sign is no hot water. If this is the case, it's important to contact a plumber right away to prevent a potential disaster.
  • Rusty water - Another sign is rusty water coming from your faucet. This could be a loose or broken anode rod, which is a piece of metal in the water heater that helps prevent corrosion. If it's not replaced, it can break off and cause water to become discolored and have a metallic taste.
  • Low water pressure - If you notice low water pressure, it could be a clogged or failing pressure valve. The valve controls the water pressure coming out of your faucet.
  • Water leaks - If you notice water leaks around your water heater, it could be a failing gasket. The gasket is what seals the water heater to the floor and prevents water from leaking.

Types of Water Heaters

There are two main types of water heaters: tank and tankless. Tank water heaters are the most common and are more affordable than tankless heaters. Tankless heaters use less energy than tank heaters because they only heat water when it's needed. If you have a large family or many people who use hot water, a tankless water heater may be a good choice for you.

Choose the Right Water Heater for Your Home

When it comes to selecting a new water heater for your home, it's important to consider factors such as energy efficiency, capacity, and fuel type. At Baumann And Degroot Heating And Cooling, we offer a wide range of water heaters to meet your specific needs and preferences.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing a water heater:

  • Energy Efficiency: Upgrading to an energy-efficient water heater can help you save on your monthly utility bills. Look for models with high Energy Factor (EF) ratings.
  • Capacity: Determine the appropriate size of the water heater based on your household's hot water usage. Consider the number of bathrooms, appliances, and family members in your home.
  • Fuel Type: Choose between electric, gas, or propane water heaters. Each fuel type has its own advantages and considerations, such as availability and cost.
  • Storage vs. Tankless: Decide whether a traditional storage tank water heater or a tankless water heater is the right choice for you. Tankless models provide hot water on demand and can save space.

Our experienced technicians can help you navigate through these options and provide expert advice on selecting the perfect water heater for your Holland, MI home. Contact Baumann And Degroot Heating And Cooling today to schedule a consultation!
