GAS AND ELECTRIC HEATING SYSTEMS
No hot water is a rude awakening. And not having enough when you need it is more than annoying. Gas water heaters require everything in a long chain of devices to work properly. The pilot light may have simply blown out. Or if your model has electronic ignition that circuit may have failed. The thermocouple is a safety feature that signals that the pilot is lit and allows the burner gas to turn on. If it’s failed the gas valve can’t open. That’s a common problem. Or you may have a bad gas valve or the thermostat may have failed. And a burner that’s out of adjustment, a partially clogged vent, sediment, or scale can dramatically reduce output. Or you may have noticed discolored or smelly hot water. Or perhaps strange noises from the tank.
Both gas and electric water heaters have a protective anode rod that can become depleted, leading to corrosion and rust-colored water. Sediment inside the tank can lead to bacteria growth and odors. And make strange noises when it breaks off and falls inside the tank. A failed dip tube lets incoming cold mix with outgoing hot so that your hot water never seems hot enough.
Then there’s leaks. The pressure relief valve is a common culprit, and replaceable. Other connections and valves can also be repaired. But if the hot water tank itself is leaking both electric and gas water heaters have to be replaced.
Yes, it can get complicated but our troubleshooting expertise means fast diagnosis and our well-stocked trucks means that most of our gas hot water heater repairs are a short single visit.
TANKLESS HEATING SYSTEMS
Everyone’s used to tank water heaters. A gas burner or electric resistance elements heat up a large tank (typically 50 gallons or more) and keep it hot until you’re ready to use it. The burner can’t keep up, so if you use too much you run out of hot water and have to wait for the heater to recover.
Tankless technologies use a burner with a high-performance heat exchanger or an electric element matched to a flow rate (typically 3-10 gpm, gallons per minute) and heat only the water you use, as you use it. Today’s showerheads use some 2-3 gpm, so you never run out of hot water. Commercial installations can bank multiple units for just about any flow rate needed. Without a big tank, these designs are also extremely compact.
Both gas and electric models are available, and they can be sized for a whole house or a single point of use.
Electric units don’t require venting and their small size means they can be installed right where you need hot water. You’ll get it nearly instantly, without wasting time and water. Plus up to some 30% in energy savings.
As with tank water heaters gas models cost less to operate. But they require an exhaust flue and often need an upgrade to a larger gas line. So they’re most commonly used as whole-house heaters. Energy savings can be as high as 30-40%, and hybrid models with a small tank can achieve an amazing 95% efficiency.
