Types of Durham Water Heater Repair

Tankless Water Heater Maintenance
The slim design of a tankless water heater makes the unit easy to store in nearly any closet and is often used in condo or apartment construction. Unlike traditional units, tankless water heaters do not store water to keep it ready for the next use.
Tankless water heaters are designed to last for up to 20 years, which is nearly a decade longer than traditional models. A yearly inspection of your tankless water heater gives your unit the best likelihood of lasting for the expected two decades. The tankless systems are prone to scaling, so the unit needs to be professionally cleaned every one to two years, depending on use. Descaling the unit ensures it will continue to operate at an optimal level for your family. The regular maintenance also gives your professional Durham plumber the opportunity to inspect the unit for any possible issues.
Traditional Water Heater Repair
The average storage water heater lasts between 7-10 years, but routine maintenance can help extend the life of the unit. These units hold the water and keep it warm, ready for use. Traditional water heaters are the most commonly used and are very dependable when Durham water heater maintenance is part of your home’s annual checkup.
Signs Your Water Heater Needs to be Serviced
Routine water heater maintenance will keep your unit running at optimal performance for years. Take the time to schedule a yearly water heater inspection to ensure your unit isn’t costing you more than you need to pay in monthly utility fees. Natural deterioration is caused by age and use, but with regular maintenance, you can detect and prevent the need for costly repair or water heater replacement.
Warning signs allow you to know when your water heater needs to be serviced or possibly replaced. Any of the red flags below indicate the need for water heater repair:
- Brown water: If you notice a tint of color in your water supply, rust may be the cause. Steel water heaters are prone to corrosion and rust which can turn your water a red or brown hue.
- Cold showers: A lack of hot water may indicate sediment buildup in the tank is stopping the unit from heating enough water.
- Cracks: Major damage can occur to your home even from small cracks in the water heater. Cracks or dents in the unit indicate the need for immediate repair. If the unit is advanced in age, water heater replacement is probably the better option.
- Unusual noises: A water heater that makes loud banging noises is likely filled with sediment. The unit is overworking in order to heat and supply water to your home, increasing your energy bill.
