Conventional water heaters are a staple for older homes in Washington. Oftentimes, they are an overlooked appliance and homeowners typically struggle with choosing the right water heater for their specific lifestyle and home. Outdated or improperly installed heaters could pose a fire risk or cause extensive damage to your home, so it’s important to regard these appliances as essential and take the necessary steps to ensure a safe option. On a day-to-day basis, it’s unlikely that people will consider the advantage of a water heater in your home, but without them, we no longer have regular showers or water for our laundry!
Conventional units have been upgraded throughout the years and these traditional models were widely used for most home-building and are still being installed today. While being the go-to unit for property builders, these models are typically quite large and take up a lot of space that could otherwise be used for storage or other household needs. They hold many gallons of water, but work to keep re-heating the available water in the tank on a constant basis. After using the hot water consecutively (taking a shower, washing dishes in the sink, etc.), the tank would have to start heating up new water before hot water is available again. This also means the water heater is consistently using energy to keep the water in the tank warm, so the cost of energy usage for the home is higher. Because of advancements in water heater technology and newer homes being built with stronger pipes, tankless water heaters were produced.
Tankless water heaters are also called “on-demand water heaters” due to the fact that they heat water right when it needs to be used. Both electric and gas-powered models are available on the market from all the top brands including Rheem, Ecosmart, and Takagi. These models are often far more cost-efficient if you’re building a new home or considering a replacement for your existing heater. In modern times, more and more people are moving in an energy-efficient direction with home improvements. Installing a tankless unit means using less power to heat water, saving you money and energy in the long run.
Electric Tankless Water Heater Puyallup
Regardless of which style of heater you currently have, an old or unreliable water heater can be a risk for your home’s safety and value. Risks include but are not limited to;
- Leaking water tank
- Valve failure
This could result in a leak flooding your garage and home, causing damage throughout your floors and other areas of the house. An outdated heater may not be resilient enough in the event of an earthquake, possibly causing damage to your home by falling over and damaging water lines. All that said, even if your current heater is functioning well enough to get by, a new tankless water heater will be far more efficient in the use of electricity, safer for your home, and run faster. Our professional water heater technicians from Pristine Plumbing are trained to identify possible hazards and risks and help you make the best-informed decision on which water heater will be a perfect fit for your home, so throughout the inspection or installation process, you can rest assured that you are making the right decision for the safety and comfort of your home.
Replacing an old unit isn’t as simple as just pulling out your old heater and attaching the new one. We inspect all of the home components that connect to the new heater, including your flue pipe, pilot light, and more to make sure everything is running as smoothly as possible. Our licensed techs perform a thorough inspection on the new heater for any damage, manufacturing defects, or missing parts and run testing with the heater once it’s installed to confirm that everything is working right in order to give our customers the peace of mind they deserve.
If in the process of performing the inspection we find any further maintenance or repairs necessary with the surrounding area, we will quickly let you know so you can make a decision of whether to continue with the new tankless water heater replacement or to fix the existing issue and hold on to the tankless heater for down the road. Regardless of the issue at hand, we are more than happy to work with our customers and their suggestions to provide the best possible outcome for everybody. We understand that everyone has different circumstances and we’re here to put your needs first and make sure your home is as safe as possible while protecting your wallet too.
