Brentwood Water Heater services
Brentwood Plumbing services is a one stop shop for all services including water heaters. We install Standard water heaters and tankless water heaters. Some of the common issues with standard tank water heaters include early failure which would result in the water heater letting go or even something mechanical like the gas valve needs to be replaced or maybe a thermostat on an electric water heater. If you are lucky then one of the easiest most common issues is when the hot water heater is leaking from the overflow pipe in your Brentwood ca home. When this issue occurs it means one of two things high pressure or high temperature. This should be an easy repair. Unfortunately unlike when the water heater leaking from relief valve happens hot water leaking from top in Brentwood is even worse. More than likely any leak from the tank itself cannot be fixed. The water heater is glass lined and you cannot fix glass. When the water heater is leaking from the top it is most likely coming from the tappings which in most cases cannot be repaired. The tappings are usually part of the tank. Rarely a manufacturer will engineer a heater where you can unscrew it and replace it. Depending on the manufacturer sometimes hot water leaking from top anode can occur. In most cases this can be fixed by replacing the anode and restarting and purging the unit. If the Homeowner ever finds that they cannot shut the water down to the water heater they will have to shut the main water supply off to the house. If they cannot shut the main water supply down to the house then they will need to call the Brentwood water company. The water company will come out fast and efficiently and shut the water down to the home outside on the street. Brentwood water can have sediments which makes it a little harder to clean up. And don’t forget with a standard tank installation you need to flush out the water heater once a year to remove the sediments that sit at the bottom of the tank.
Tankless Water heaters
When tankless water heaters are mentioned most people think safety. Tankless water heaters do not have a tank (ironically). Most tankless water heaters are also high efficient. This unit gets mounted on the wall down in the basement. All water, gas, air intake and exhaust are piped to the unit usually around the same location the old tank was in. There are some pros and cons to having a tankless. Let's start with the cons. The cons would be if the tankless water heater were to fail it is usually a minimum of a few days for those parts to get shipped to the customer to fix the issue. When those parts get there the customer usually has to pay the contractor the labor to put them in. The manufacturer won’t cover the labor cost. (I have seen some brands cover a certain percent of the cost for labor however it is not likely). Another con is that the tankless water heater works at its best when the water is near to perfect. This meaning minimal sediments, soft type water and a PH level close to neutral. The tankless heats on demand when you call for hot water. The water goes through a series of pipes that include cullinoid’s which read temperature and flow. The water enters a chamber called the heat exchanger which heats the water. If the water is not almost perfect the unit breaks down at a much faster rate. You as the customer should look into water quality if you are interested in a high efficiency tankless water heater.
