Do You Need Water Heater Services in Spokane?

If you’re reading this, chances are good that you’re thinking about purchasing a new water heater or scheduling service or repair for your existing unit.
Sometimes, the need for service is obvious, like when your basement suddenly becomes flooded with water that used to be inside your water heater tank! Other times, however, it’s not so obvious. That’s when JLR Plumbing can be of service.

Signs that you may need water heater installation or repair include the following:

  1. Very little or no hot water
  2. Rust-colored water
  3. Strange noises or smells coming from your water heater
  4. Mysteriously high energy bills
  5. Frequent water heater repairs
  6. Constantly leaks and/or reduced hot water pressure
  7. Sediment at the bottom of your water heater tank
  8. Your water heater is more than eight years old

Not everyone will experience all of these signs, and some people won’t experience any of them even though there’s an issue with their system.

If you haven’t had regular maintenance, a check-up, or an inspection on your water heater in over a year, call JLR Plumbing. It’s possible to detect and fix problems in their early stages before more costly irreversible damage occurs.

The benefits of installing a new water heater include greater efficiency, lower bills, a better hot water recovery rate, and space savings. At the same time, properly maintaining your water heater means fewer repairs and a longer overall system lifespan.

Should You Get a Standard or Tankless Water Heater?

Storage tank water heaters are still the most popular type of water heater, but that’s rapidly changing, with tankless models quickly gaining market share. If your storage tank water heater is nearing or at the end of its lifespan and you’re interested in saving energy and space, you may want to consider a tankless water heater.

The Pros of Tankless Water Heaters in Spokane

Tankless water heaters generally run more efficiently and last longer than storage tank heaters, and you don’t have to have a giant tank sitting in your basement (or closet, garage, or anywhere, for that matter).

These tankless heaters offer on-demand water heating as opposed to storing water in a tank. Instead, they heat water as it passes through the system using a heat exchanger. Water is heated only when needed, saving you energy and money.

Tankless heaters can be mounted on a wall to free up valuable floor space, and they fit nicely into small spaces. Although they vary in size, the average dimensions are about a foot wide and two feet tall. That’s it!

Tankless water heaters do have higher upfront costs than storage tank water heaters, and installation requires retrofitting by a licensed, experienced plumber like JLR Plumbing. But once installed, they can pay for themselves in just a few years.

The Pros of Storage Tank Water Heaters

A storage tank water heater is less expensive up front than tankless versions, regardless of whether you go with gas or electric. However, they aren’t as efficient as tankless systems, and they take up an enormous amount of space, comparatively speaking. They also don’t last as long.

All of these factors can cost you a lot more money in the long run than a tankless system. That said, replacing your storage tank water heater with a new tank system is usually a straightforward, simple plumbing job, and installation costs are generally less expensive.

You won’t have to upgrade any electrical or have any advanced retrofits done, either. They deliver a reliable, steady hot water supply as long as they remain in good condition.
