Let’s find out if a tankless water heater right for you.
There are many opinions on tankless water heaters and it can be a little difficult to get some clear information about them. Some say they love them, while others haven’t had a great experience with them.
So, what does a tankless water heater do and how does it work? Here’s the lowdown!
“Comfort Bear, are you using a scare tactic?”
No, that is not my intention—but hear me out. Water heaters are one of those systems that we all suffer for if we go without, but take for granted the fact that we have them for cooking, cleaning, and bathing.
I may like it when temperatures outside are a bit on the chillier side, but cold showers early in the morning are not my favorite.
When you forget about your water heater, it means you’re forgetting about the care it needs. While your system isn’t inherently dangerous on its own, ignoring the need for maintenance or water heater repair can be hazardous. Here are 3 potential risks of neglecting your water heater.
Climate Control Heating & Cooling wants to help our neighbors in the KC area
If you are in the St Joseph area and you experienced recent flooding, you probably want to just get back to normal life as soon as possible. A lot of things are probably running through your mind like how you are going to clean up and how to repair water damage to your home. You may not realize this, but if your HVAC unit was submerged during the flood, you may have a whole list of other issues.
Sure, the outside of your air conditioner or furnace may look just the same as it did before the flood! It is highly likely that water-damaged HVAC equipment may not work or may not work for long after being flooded. Furnaces, heaters and boilers have gas valves and controls that are especially vulnerable to water damage. Even electric furnaces have coils that are susceptible to corrosion if flooded.
What should you do?
Hey, folks! Your friendly neighborhood comfort bear here. From now on, I’ll be taking over as the primary source of blog information for Climate Control on this site. It may seem like a weird choice to have a bear blogging about climate control, but I can assure you that I’m very well qualified. If there’s one thing bears care about, after all, it’s staying comfortable in our environment.
Today, we’re going to be discussing ways that you can tell that your water heater needs replacing. I don’t mind taking ice cold showers, but I’m told that it’s a bit less refreshing for people without fur. So, let’s get right to it!
Water heaters are built to last, but they’re not immune to problems. Using the system multiple times a day, every day puts a lot of strain on it. If you want to protect your investment, it’s a very good idea to make sure that you are on the lookout for any signs that indicate that your water heater is in trouble. Let’s go over some of the more common signs that your water heater needs professional services right away.
Let’s be honest, most people don’t really think or care much about what kind of water heater they have in their homes as long as it provides hot water for them when they need it. That’s the thing, though: not every water heater is going to work the same way in every situation. The kind of water heater you install in your home actually has quite a large impact, which is why you should consider the various options and the benefits each can provide.
Water heaters put up with a lot of abuse throughout their years of operation. They’re designed to, actually. If you think about how many times a day, every day, you make use of hot water in your home, you’ll realize that your water heater works incredibly hard 24/7.
Even if you take perfect care of your water heater, though, with consistent maintenance and prompt repairs, you know that eventually you will have to replace it with a new one. The following are a few signs that you should look for in your water heater, indicating that maybe it’s time to have a professional replace it for you.
