Below is a list of the types of water heaters we offer including their description:
Tankless water heaters
These types of water heaters normally have a life expectancy of 20 years. Tankless water heaters are a great water and electricity conservation feature in your home because they only heat the water you are using at the moment. Unlike the traditional water heaters which heats water up to 24 hours, tankless water heaters have been designed with a special unit that clicks on when the taps are opened and shuts down once you are done.
Electric water heaters
These are classified as standard type of water heaters. These water heaters are ceramic lined and have electric heating elements connected to thermostats for stable water heating. The advantage of having the electric water heaters is that they are simple, efficient and most convenient way to heat water in both residential and commercial buildings.
Liquid Petroleum gas water heaters
Liquid Petroleum gas water heaters or commonly known as L.P gas water heaters are known to have a better recovery rate nearly twice as fast as electric water heaters. They also use even lesser energy that the electric water heaters and are able to perform to a capacity of a larger electrical unit. The L.P gas water heaters are extremely durable and can last for many years with minimal maintenance requirement.
Hybrid water heaters
Hybrid water heaters are a far more energy efficient way to produce heat and keep hot water available at all times. They neither use natural gas power nor electrical resistance heating to warm up the water inside its tank. Instead, they use electricity to power components that draw ambient heat from the outside air, and then apply that heat to the tank. The hybrid water heaters are environmentally friendly in that they release fewer greenhouse gases than natural gas powered water heaters and are safe to work with, making you worry less about the potential health hazards such as combustion and toxic exhaust.
Natural gas water heaters
Most people opt for natural gas water heaters because they offer a variety of practical benefits for example they are quite reliable during power outages than other water heaters. These water heaters do not store hot water in the tank but instead heat water as needed. They also take up less space than other traditional water heaters such as the electric water heater. If you are concerned with conserving the environment, we highly recommend this water heater because it is more efficient than electricity, reducing the carbon produced in the powering of the heater.
Solar powered water heaters
Solar powered water heaters do not depend on fossil fuels and take energy from the sun to heat stored water, saving you a great deal of money. If your household is in an open area or modernized to access the sun rays, we recommend this type of water heaters. We also advice business owners who have industries, hotels, gymnasiums, educational institutions, hospitals or spas to take up solar powered water heaters because most models employ a backup system that kicks in when needed, making them most efficient.
Installation and maintenance
Before any installation or maintenance process, we access the state of your household with our team of specialists to study several factors which include: climate, fuel type, building type, code requirements and safety issues. We also offer useful tips and advice to help you manage your water heaters.
Our services also include water heater repairs and replacement services. If you notice any of the problems below on your water heater, do not hesitate to contact us:
- Strange sounds
It is normal for a water heater to make a humming sound; after all it is connected to certain power applications. When mineral deposits have built up overtime, they cause the appliance to overheat as it works to keep the water hot. This overheating may then cause the water heater to create strange sounds. In normal cases, we conduct a thorough cleaning process for it to work regularly again, if there is severe damage, we take up other necessary measures to repair your water heater.
- Rusty water
When you use hot water on a regular basis, the water heater is bound to get corrosive, leading to production of rust along the pipes. You will probably notice a change in the color of your water when you turn the taps on. Usually when you turn the hot water on and the water is rusty, the corrosion might be in the water heater tank. When both the hot and the cold water are turned on and the water is rusty, the corrosion is probably in the pipes. Our experts deal with such situations all the time and we are ready to offer our assistance before it damages the tank.
Leakages mostly occur when the water heater has passed its time of viability or when water heater appliances have not been fixed well during installation or replacement. That is why it is very important to conduct a regular check your pipes and other appliances connected to the water heater once in a while for leakages.
- Uneven water heating process
Uneven water heating processes may be caused by mineral deposits that may have built up around your water heater’s heating elements. This causes the water to get heated at varied temperatures at different times, which can be annoying sometimes. This means that the heating elements need to be repaired or replaced.
- Minimal hot water pressure
Mineral deposits are a major culprit to low hot water pressure. These mineral deposits build up blocking water heater pipes, reducing the water pressure coming out of your water heater. Poorly designed water heaters and altered distribution lines can also cause water pressure problems. Fixing the mineral deposits problem may be just what your water heater needs.
Sometimes, repairing your water heater is just not enough. In some cases, you may want to replace your water heater depending on the severity of the damage. Water heaters operate on an everyday basis, putting them in a lot of heat pressure. The following are some of the signs to look out for to realize that your water heater needs to be replaced.
Distressing sounds from the water heater
In households that consume large amounts of hot water, this problem is more prominent. Sediments start forming at the bottom of the tank, building up due to constant heating and reheating of water. The sediments may grow thicker along the tank floors, wearing the water heater down rapidly, hence causing the weird noises. This means that your probably need to get a new water heater to enjoy the hot water.
Water leakages under and around the water heater
Most water heaters are made of steel. Due to constant heating of the water, this metal expands eventually, causing chipping and cracks that can let through water once the reheating starts, hence the leakages. This commonly occurs when water heaters are nearing the end if their life expectancy. You may begin to notice water pools on the floor of the tank or around it.
Your water heater is too old
Most people are unaware when a water heater has passed its life expectancy. Usually a water heater can last up to ten years if properly taken care of. Wear and tear is the first signs you will notice with your water heater to know it is old. Replace your water heater once you start noticing faulty distribution lines, leaking tank or weird sounds emanating from the tank. The actual need to replace a heater could arise before this timeline because different water heater have different life expectancy, as some water heaters can last up to 10 years while others take 6-8 years.
When most parts of the water heater are covered in rust, it is a sign that you should immediately replace it. Rust serves as the warning sign for oncoming leaks and discolored water which can sometimes be dangerous. This shows that your tank, distribution pipes and some water heater appliances are corroded and cannot be repaired.
The water does not heat to ample levels
When your water heater is too small for your big house, it is highly unlikely you will get the hot water you need. Also the reason you are not getting sufficient hot water is because an element or some elements in the heating system are broken.
