Should I Repair or Replace?
Maybe you’ve noticed a rusty tinge to your water or have trouble getting (or have a limited supply of) hot water. Maybe you’ve noticed a leak or a jump that you can’t explain in your water bills. Perhaps you’ve seen a leak near your tank. Now you are trying to decide if you replace or if you repair your tank. Truly, one of the best indicators is the age of your tank. If it is 15 years +, that alone will likely require you to get a new tank. The good news is that in the last several years there have been significant advances in energy efficient features, so you will benefit from that. Also, if the tank is leaking or cracked, you’ll likely have to replace rather than repair.
Storage vs. Tankless:
We repair and install both traditional storage and tankless heaters. Let’s tell you a little bit about the differences between the two.
Storage hot water tanks are just like they sound. They have a storage tank where water is stored and heated, ready for you to use.
Tankless hot water heaters are “on-demand”. They don’t actually have traditional storage tanks, but heat water as you need. They are more energy efficient and therefore cost less to operate. They can be more expensive at the outset, but you can generally recoup your costs with savings on your bills in about three years.
Sink, Tub, Toilet and Fixture Installation:
Even the best DIY guy or girl could use a little help installing these plumbing fixtures, because it is essential that they are done right. For instance, a poorly installed toilet can lead to moisture and rotting floor area beneath.
