Storage tank water heaters are the most common types of units installed in homes in the U.S., and there are many reasons for this. For one thing, storage tank water heaters are known for their durability, lasting well over a decade for the vast majority of homes (as long as the unit is properly installed and maintained). Additionally, a tank water heater is cost-effective, and gas water heaters are fairly inexpensive to operate as well. Although there are other efficient options available today, a storage tank water heater is a reliable system that fits into most homes. But any system requires professional services at some point in time, no matter how reliable it may be.

Which Size Tank Is Right for My Home?

The first step in installing any gas or electric tank water heater is determining which size will be the right fit for your home and your family’s needs. A water heater that is too big is not worth the cost. You just end up using a lot of energy to heat up water that goes largely unused. A smaller water heater is less expensive, but you might not have enough hot water if you have a larger household. A professional will ask you questions and take measurements to ensure that your water heater is the right fit. Be sure to contact a local plumber from the very beginning of the installation process.

Does Your Tank Need Repair?

We recommend that you call a professional as soon as you notice any type of issue with your hot water heater. Whether your system has completely stopped working or if you are concerned about a banging noise in the tank, you should take the issue seriously. It is a good idea to schedule maintenance for your storage tank water heater once a year in order to ensure that the system remains in good condition, so that you are not without hot water when you really need it. Professional water heater maintenance may include a flush of your tank in order to rid it of sediment in the tank. Additionally, a technician will inspect your unit, and possibly make some adjustments for better efficiency and performance.

We install and service electric and natural gas tank water heaters in the area. Call our friendly technicians for installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance services. We will do whatever possible to make sure that your storage tank hot water system operates at its best for as long as possible. Give Shilo Plumbing a call today!
