Warsaw, IN Water Heater Services

Water heaters are a big part of daily life, but they’re also an appliance that people really don’t think about very much. At least, until something goes wrong. When you expect to have hot water for dishes or a shower in your Warsaw, IN area home, you want to know that you can rely on your water heater to provide it for you.

If you’re finding that your water heater isn’t working, or isn’t heating as efficiently as it used to, N.E.W. Plumbing & Heating can help with maintenance, repair, and installation services for water heaters all over the Warsaw area. We know how important it is for you to have hot water you can rely on.

Different Types of Water Heaters

No matter what kind of water heater you currently have, you can get the help you need to maintain, repair, or replace it if it’s not working correctly. The most common types of water heaters are large, tank appliances that operate off of either gas or electric. These are usually gray or white in color, and the basement or a closet area is the most common place for them.

While they’re seen in most homes, they aren’t the only option for having the hot water you want and need at your Warsaw, IN home. There are also tankless water heaters that are much smaller and can be installed in less space. These types of water heaters heat the water going through them instantly, so they don’t run out of hot water the way traditional options can. Like every appliance used in daily life, there are pros and cons to having a tankless water heater. The upfront cost is higher, but they’re more energy efficient.

Water Heater Repair and Installation Services

No matter what type of water heater you have or choose to install, you want to make sure you have the right repair and installation services available. Maintenance on a water heater is minimal, but it’s a good idea to have it inspected at the same time as other appliances or areas of your plumbing system. If you notice problems with your water heater, having it inspected is important at that time, too.

With the right installation services, you can feel confident that your water heater is going to work the way it should, for a long time. You can also reduce your worries about repairs when you have a trusted company to handle that for you. Not having hot water, and not knowing who to call to fix it, is a frustrating problem that you can avoid by working with N.E.W. Plumbing & Heating.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Replaced

A water heater will generally last for 10 to 15 years, and sometimes longer. But eventually, even the best water heater will be in need of replacement. If you’re not sure about the quality or lifespan of your water heater, there are some signs and symptoms you can look for when determining whether it might need to be replaced.

It’s past its usable lifespan

A water heater that’s more than 10 or 15 years old probably needs replaced, even if it seems to be working well. At that age, it’s likely not very efficient anymore. Additionally, there could be other problems that it’s starting to develop, and it may start to leak or simply quit working at any time. You don’t want to end up with big problems like that, so replacing it before it breaks can be the right choice.

It’s leaking

A leaking water heater usually means it needs to be replaced. Once they start to leak, it’s generally not possible or easy to repair them. It’s also typically not cost-effective to try to fix a leak on a water heater. Instead, replacing it means peace of mind, no more leaks, and a newer and more efficient unit you can rely on for hot water when you need it.

It’s making knocking noises

Knocking noises aren’t good noises, and they indicate that a water heater is on its way out. Naturally, that’s not good news. You want your water heater to keep working for as long as possible, so you don’t need to worry about it. Knocking and gurgling and other suspicious sounds tell you that there’s a problem occurring, or one that’s about to happen.

It’s not heating well or efficiently

As a water heater gets older, it’s not as efficient and won’t heat as well as it used to. Heating elements in  water heaters can be replaced, but older heaters may not have newer elements that work with them properly. In most cases, a water heater that’s not heating properly just needs replacing. It’s usually an indication that things are starting to wear out, and will start costing you money soon.

It needs frequent repairs

Any water heater that’s frequently breaking down and needing repair is a water heater that needs replaced. Repairs can range from small, inexpensive issues, to larger, more costly problems. Overall, a water heater that needs repairs often is one that’s only going to get more expensive over time. The best course of action is to put the money into a new water heater, instead of the repairs to the older one.
