Seattle Water Heater Installation
It can be difficult to get through the day without a functional hot water heater. Things that you take for granted like hot showers, warm dishwater, and water that is a comfortable temperature in which to wash your hands can disappear in an instant when your water heater breaks.
In many cases, there is nothing that can be done to repair these units, especially once they have reached a certain age. As a result, it is very likely that you will need to have a new water heater installed in your home.
You can start the Seattle water heater replacement process by calling Hunt’s Plumbing and Mechanical at 253-927-5862. Our technicians will come to your house and remove your old water heater. They will then give you a list of options from which to choose on a new heater and will install it for you.
Types of Water Heaters in Seattle
Most times, you will have a couple of different types of water heaters from which to choose. The first is a water tank that is usually installed next to your furnace. Water is collected in the tank and a built-in element is used to heat it.
Some people prefer the newer tankless water heaters in their home, however. These models are popular because they never run out of hot water like a tank does and, therefore, your hot water is available on demand.
Why Seattle Hot Water Heaters Break
Many customers wonder why their hot water heater has stopped working. The most common reason is age, as these units are generally made to last between 12 and 15 years. The quality of your water could also have something to do with it, as water that has a high mineral count could damage the tank.
In reality, hot water heaters are easily replaceable and relatively inexpensive, especially when you consider how much they are used.
No matter why your tank has broken, Hunt’s Plumbing and Mechanical is standing by to get your hot water service back up and running. We’re available to work all over King County, so give us a call today at 253-927-5862.
