Water heater repair
It’s easy to overlook the need to upkeep your water heater – until you’re compelled to shower using cold water. What’s more, when that happens, it’s probably past the point of correcting a small issue.

Your water heater will perform at its best, use less energy, and last much longer.
Harm to the water radiator tank regularly happens when silt builds up. You may need to deplete your tank with a specific end goal to remove the residue, and you should hire a professional to prevent any issues. You should call ARS/Rescue Rooter of Richmond when you see rust or metal in your water heater tank. On the off chance that this happens, there might be an anode bar that must be replaced. This bar pulls in chemicals in the water and keeps rust from working in the tank liner. Eroding in the water radiator liner could make the tank spill. There is a drain pan under the water heater, and in the event that it is excessively old or installed incorrectly, your home may encounter water damage. Floors, dividers, or even the roof could be hurt, contingent upon the area of your water radiator.
Caution: Turn off the power at your circuit breaker or shut off the gas before making any kind of water heater inspection.

Sometimes replacing your old water heater is the most economic option. In the past, you had only a few options, and would likely just replace your current water heater with another of the same make and model. However, in today’s high-efficiency world, there are a lot of new options for you to consider. These options will help to improve the green living profile of your home and make your home more energy efficient. What to consider when purchasing a new water heater:
- Fuel type, availability, and cost
- Number of people living in your home (hot water demand)
- Length of warranty
- Cost of the unit as it relates to annual operating cost
- Estimated energy efficiency of various models
- Maintenance and repair information
- How well your old unit supplied your demand
Depending on the size of your family, you will want to select a water heater with the best recovery rate for your needs. The water heater should deliver enough hot water where and when your home needs it, in the most cost-effective and energy efficient manner. You also may need more than one water heater to effectively supply your home, depending on the floorplan.
