Water Heater Replacements And Repair

The state of Texas requires that a licensed plumber perform installations and repairs of water heater appliances. Bluebonnet Plumbing Services specializes in assisting both families and businesses with water heating issues.

What is a water heater?

A water heater is an important appliance that provides heated water to be used for cooking or bathing. It is typically installed in the basement or garage and is compromised of four main parts. These parts are the inbound cold water line (dip tube), the heating element (gas or electric), the storage tank and the heat-out pipe. 

Types of water heaters

There are a few different types of water heating device that you can choose from based on your needs and preferences. Electric water heaters are the most popular type and are affordable and efficient. Gas water heaters are also popular but can be more expensive to operate since they require more energy to accomplish the heating process. These use either electricity or gas in a heat exchanger and provide on demand hot water. A limitation that tankless heaters have is their flow rate can be more limited.

When do you need the water heater repair or replacement?

If your water heater is not heating up or making strange noises, you likely need to have it repaired or replaced. Checking the seals and pressure tests on your water heater every year can help prevent problems in the first place, but if they occur, having your water heater serviced quickly is the best way to ensure a quick and satisfactory repair.


Maintenance of water heaters

Maintenance can significantly extend the longevity of your water heater and mitigate efficiency loss. Your owner’s manual can be a good first source to consult regarding maintenance recommendations.

Often best practices for water heater maintenance can include:

  • Flushing a quart of water from the storage tank every three months
  • Checking the temperature and pressure valve every six months
  • Inspecting the anode rod every three to four years.

(the above may vary depending on the manufacturer, model and type)

Advantages of water heater replacement

There are many advantages to replacing your water heater instead of repairing it. Because technology continually improves performance and energy efficiences, new water heaters can represent a measureable improvement over your current unit’s efficiency.

Proper installation is key to having it operate at miximum efficiency and depends on many factors. These factors include fuel type, climate, local building code requirements, and safety issues, especially concerning the combustion of gas- and oil-fired. Therefore, it’s best to have a qualified plumbing and heating contractor, like Bluebonnet Plumbing Services.
