The most common sign that your water heater needs repair is that it doesn’t provide sufficient hot water. Low heat can be caused by several things, including a problem with the thermostat on the water heater, thinning of the insulation inside the water heater, or build-up of sediment on the base of the water heater blocking heat transfer. However, no matter what the cause, it will likely cost you money as you run water for longer, trying to get it to become hot.

If you are interested in replacing your current water heater, we recommend you ask one of our plumbing specialists about the benefits of switching to a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters have a higher initial installation fee but use up to 50% less energy than those with tanks and, in turn, save typical family hundreds of dollars a year on their water bills.

Tankless water heaters are compact heating units that provide hot water as needed and do not store hot water like traditional tank-type water heaters. When a hot water tap is turned on, water flows through the tankless water heater. A sensor detects the water flow and activates an electric or gas heating device, which quickly raises the water temperature to the level you set. When water flow stops, the heating element shuts off.

The oil accumulates on the canals and ultimately makes the pipe so small that even typical wastewater can not make its way through the system. That only leaves one way for it to flow.
