Water heaters are an essential part of any modern home. If you try to imagine making it through a week, or even just a day, without hot water, you’ll start to understand how important this appliance is to your home life. Cooking, cleaning, and bathing are activities that would be next to impossible without running hot water. For most homes—probably including yours—the water heater that sees to your hot water needs is a storage tank water heater, i.e. a system that uses a hot water tank to store the water until it’s needed.
Although there are more options now for water heaters than ever before, tank water heaters remain popular. Baxter Comfort Solutions will help you with whatever tank water heater job you may need in Baxter, IA and the surrounding areas. Our technicians will get to you fast when you have repair issues, and they’ll also help you out when it’s time for a new water heater installation. Make us your first call for tank water heater services.
Since there are other choices for water heaters today, such as tankless and heat pump models, is there any reason to stick with the standard storage tank water heater? Yes, although what works best changes from household to household. The best way to determine if you should commit to a new tank water heater is to consult with our professionals.
The most common reasons that people stick with tank water heaters is that they are less expensive to install than other systems and won’t require making any major changes to the rest of the plumbing. Although a tank water heater can run out of its hot water supply, this should occur rarely if the system was sized and installed professionally.
Installing a tank water heater requires extensive professional skill and training. It isn’t something that you want amateurs to do, and you shouldn’t attempt to do it on your own either! This is especially important for natural gas water heaters, which can present safety hazards if installed incorrectly. But even electric tank water heaters must have the touch of a professional for installation.
For starters, a water heater of any kind must be sized accurately so that it delivers the right volume of hot water without wasting energy. The work of removing an older water heater for a replacement is also a massive task, and you’ll be glad you brought on experienced technicians to handle the work! With us on the job, you can depend on having a great tank water heater that works right for years to come. We install the top brands, such as Ruud.
No matter how professional an installation your tank water heater had, it may at some point run into a malfunction: a drop in water temperature, leaks, corrosion, etc. No problem—simply contact our team for repairs, and we’ll make sure the work is done right. You can also rely on us to maintain your water heater each year to ensure peak performance and no drop in energy efficiency.
