When your hot water heater breaks, you will know that something isn’t right when there is no hot water coming from your faucets. You will likely turn on a faucet to clean some dishes, wash your hands, or take a shower, only to find that the water is cold and stays cold no matter how long you keep the tap running.
When the hot water never arrives, you become frustrated and wonder how much your Seattle or Tacoma water heater repair is going to cost.
The problem is that it is very difficult to live without hot water on demand. Sure, people did it for centuries previously, but we have become so accustomed to having hot water available the second we turn on the tap that going without hot water for even a couple of days becomes a real inconvenience.
Luckily, you won’t have to be without this service for long if you choose to call Hunt’s Plumbing & Mechanical. Our trained technicians will restore your hot water in no time at all, so that you aren’t left wondering where you will take your next shower.
Give us a call at 253-533-7500 if you ever experience problems with your hot water heater, or any other Seattle plumbing issue, because we have the ability to fix or replace your tank in a matter of hours, so that you have the instant hot water that you need.
In basic terms, hot water heaters have a certain life expectancy and once they reach that age, you are going to start running into problems. Obviously, in a perfect world, you would never have to replace your hot water tank in Seattle or Tacoma, but this simply isn’t realistic.
A water heater will typically last for between 10 and 20 years. Some will last longer, of course, but once your heater is more than 10 or 15 years, old it is very likely that you will start running into problems.
If your heater is of an advanced age, we will recommend that you go through with a water heater replacement because a repair will simply prolong the pain and will lead to another problem in the near future. The good news is that newer hot water heaters aren’t overly expensive and they will last for over a decade, making them a very good investment.
There are situations where your heater could break before it is old, however, and in these scenarios we might try repairing it. Repairing the heater is the best option because it costs less and is less of a hassle. Give the hot water tank experts at Hunt’s Plumbing a call at 253-533-7500 and we can take a look and let you know if repair is your best option.
When sediment has built up inside your tank or the heating element stops working, we might be able to repair it. Elements can corrode due to a higher mineral content in the water such as you typically find with well water.
Another issue that you could run into is a rusted or corroded tank. When this happens, replacing it is the only option because the last thing you want is a tank full of water leaking into your basement.
When a new water heater installation becomes the only option, you will have a couple of different options from which to choose, depending on the size of your home and how much hot water you use each day.
In many cases, our water heater installation will include putting a brand new conventional water tank in your home. The newest tanks on the market are far more energy efficient than the ones from past generations, so you can expect to save some money once you have this installed.
Keep in mind that there are different sizes and styles available. Speak with one of our certified technicians to find the best option for your home, as it all comes down to how many people will be using the hot water at your house.
If your kids have moved out and its just the two of you, you might be able to get away with a smaller tank. Once again, give Hunt’s Plumbing & Mechanical a call to discuss your options and find the tank that best suits your needs.
In recent years, tankless water heaters have become a popular way to heat your water. These units work by heating the water as you need it, which can save you money because you won’t have a tank that is constantly heating water for your home.
Basically, the water is heated as it goes through your pipes by an element that is placed along the way. This element heats the water quickly, giving you an unlimited supply.
If you feel like this could be an option for your home, talk to one of our experts at 253-533-7500 for more information. Hunt’s Plumbing & Mechanical has installed many tankless hot water heaters, so we can certainly put one if your home if you are looking for increased savings and convenience.
