If you have ever tried to do your regular household chore with no hot water, you understand the importance of a heating appliance in your home. Generally, you don’t think too much about this particular appliance until you are in the middle of a shower or a load of dishes in the dishwasher and the heater springs a leak, or you are only getting cold H2O from the shower head. Do you need water heater repair in Costa Mesa? If you need repairs done on your heater appliance, Tweedy Plumbing and Restoration is the most experienced and professional plumbing team in the entire area.
There are two main types of heaters for household H2O. The type you choose will depend upon the needs within the house, as well as the volume of flow and the type of usage which is common. Tankless heaters require less space and are generally an on-demand system. This can be instrumental in savings on energy costs.
For most people, a standard tank is more common. This type of appliance comes in a variety of sizes, but the concept of the appliance is that a large amount the H2O supply is heated and held at a pre-selected temperature. This requires more energy to maintain the heat, even when it is not being used for showers, laundry or other household needs. In a large household, with plenty of people bathing and using the supply of H2O, a very large heater, or more than one smaller unit, may be preferred so that there is not a lengthy pipe span where the hot waters cool off before the destination point is reached.
Of course, the type of heating element which is used will also affect the durability of the unit, the need for repairs, and the cost of the repairs. Another factor which can affect the performance of the appliance is the quality of the water. Some types of water have a heavy mineral content, which can lead to a build-up over time in the bottom of the tank. This means the heating element can become corroded and be less efficient.
Why wait until something goes wrong? Have one of our experienced plumbers perform a regular check on your entire system. He or she will identify areas which could create problems in the future and fix the issues promptly.
