A water heater is an important feature in every household. Every indoor activity involving hot water such a showering, washing or cleaning dishes becomes solely dependable on the water heater.
There are two main types of water heaters in the market today: traditional hot water tanks and modern tankless water heaters. Both types accomplish the same objective which is to constantly supply you with hot water at all times.
Tallahassee Water Heater Install & Replacement boasts of having a professional team with great skills in installing all models and designs of water heaters and come highly recommended by our satisfied customers.
Before any installation or replacement process, we believe that it is important to engage our customers first before they even do their first purchase. We advise them on some of the factors that they should consider before purchasing a new model/ design of the water heater, such as: heater capacity, warranty, the type of water in your household among others. We also let them fully understand set regulations and helpful tips and advice.
We offer a wide variety of water heaters that you could choose from based on your preference. We also offer both residential and commercial water heater installation and replacement services.
Below are some of our products with their descriptions:
Hybrid water heaters
These are traditional storage tanks water heaters with a twist. They use a heat pump to heat up the water. The water heater then uses a fan to draw in air from the surrounding area. An evaporator coil contains refrigerant which absorbs heat from the air. As refrigerant moves through the compressor, it’s heated up even more. It then flows through a heat exchanger so it can heat up the water in the tank. This is a far more energy efficient way to produce heat and keep hot water available at all times, unlike the tankless system.
Solar powered water heaters
Solar powered water heaters are the only economically viable solar solution for users with access to grid energy. You can make up to 60% savings on your electricity bills by heating your water using solar energy. These water heaters are highly recommended for domestic, industrial applications, hotels, gymnasiums, educational institutions, hospitals etc., be it for basic hot water requirements or complex heating solutions. Also, most models employ a backup system that kicks in when needed.
Tankless water heaters
Unlike other traditional water heaters that keep water at a set temperature for 24 hours, tankless units heat only the water you use. When you open a tap, the unit clicks on and once you are done, the unit shuts down. So there is no wasted energy heating water while you sleep or are away from home. And there is no tank to run out of hot water. The heater’s burners will keep heating water for as long as you need it. Tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of about 20 years, which is longer than standard water heaters.
Natural gas water heaters
Natural gas water heaters operate identically with gas or propane burner located at the bottom of the storage tanks heating the water. Emissions from natural fuel fired water heaters are expelled using a variety of venting technologies. Atmospheric vented systems use room air as combustion air and exhaust air. The exhaust air is expelled through the exhaust flue by buoyancy forces resulting from the combustion.
Liquid Petroleum gas water heaters
Liquid Petroleum gas water heaters or commonly known as L.P gas water heaters are designed for fast and easy set-up. Their hot water systems work very much like natural gas systems. The key difference is in the fuel source. LPG hot water heaters use fuel from an externally connected LPG tank rather than connecting to existing gas piping. These water heaters typically use even less energy than electric water heaters. You can enjoy a steady supply of comfortably hot water because thick insulation keeps the tank warm, while the cobalt-blue glass lining protects the tank from corrosion.
Electric water heaters
These are the standard type of water heaters. An electric unit is wired to a volt circuit. To heat the water, the current passes through electrical-resistance heating elements—usually two, one at the middle of the tank and one at the bottom. Power is then delivered to each element through a thermostat—a switch that senses the water temperature. When the temperature drops, the switch closes to allow current flow and it opens when the temperature reaches its preset limit.
Installation and maintenance
In order to achieve energy efficiencies of your water heater, proper installation and maintenance must be observed. We assist our customers by engaging them with our team of specialists to study several factors in their households for example climate, fuel type, building type, code requirements and safety issues. After installation, we advise them on any additional energy-saving strategies to help them lower their water heating bills.
Water heater repairs
In most households, water heaters are usually just a passing thought until they stop working and people get stuck with cold water. The big question is how do you spot water heater problems to know that it requires repairs? Below are some of the signs to look out for:
Most people rarely check on their water heaters until the hot water runs out and this may lead to missed cases of leakages in your household. It is important to incorporate a quick scan once in a while by regularly checking the pipes and any other appliances connected to the water heater.
Most water heaters make a humming sound when in operation, which is considered natural. However, other sounds that may come from the water heater will be a cause for alarm. In most cases, mineral deposits have built up and caused the appliance to overheat as it works to keep the water hot. If the tank hasn’t already started leaking, a flush and thorough cleaning may be enough to keep it working.
Water that varies in temperatures at different times and is not constant is definitely a sign that something is not working right with your water heater. This may mean that mineral deposits have built up around your water heater’s heating elements or that the heating elements need to be repaired or replaced.
Compromised distribution lines and poorly designed water heaters are some of the problems that will cause low hot water pressure. Mineral deposits are also a major culprit to low hot water pressure. These mineral deposits build up enough to block pipes, reducing the water pressure coming out of your water heater.
Visible rust or a metallic taste in your water means that there is corrosion somewhere along the lines of your water heater. If your hot water and cold water are rusty when they come out of the tap, the corrosion is probably somewhere in your pipes. If only the hot water is rusty, odds are good that the problem is inside the water heater. This means that you need professional assistance before it damages the tank or causes it to fail.
In majority of households, an average person can utilize hot water up to 20 times per day. For a household with family members, the consumption rate is quite higher, which puts the heating pressure on water heaters frequently. With this in mind, repairing your water heater sometimes may not be sufficient for future usage. This is when we recommend water heater replacement, depending on its usage and its life span
A traditional water heater lifespan is 8 – 10 years. For other water heaters, it ranges from 6 – 8 years. The following are signs that indicate when it is time to replace your water heater.
Wear and tear is one of the common signs of an aging water heater. You should replace your water heater once you start noticing faulty distribution lines, leaking tank, strange sounds emanating from the tank among others. Most people are usually unaware when a water heater has passed its time of usage. While ten is the age at which heater replacement is generally recommended, the actual need to replace a heater could arise before this timeline because different water heater have different life expectancy.
Warm and hot water are among the most vital household necessities. Your water heater performance may not be as it used to, for instance you may experience a change in the water temperatures than the one are acquainted to. You may also have several broken heating elements or your tank is too small for the size of your house.
Noises from the water heater are mainly caused by sediment build up. Due to the constant heating and reheating of water, sediments start to form at the bottom of the tank. Over time, the sediment hardens and grows thicker along the tank floor, wearing a water heater down rapidly. In households that consume larger amounts of water, this problem is likely to be more pronounced.
A lot of water heaters are made of solid steel. However, steel has a major weakness – rust. When corrosion takes hold on the steel surface, it slowly spreads and eats through the steel in certain spots. On water pipes and tanks made of steel, rust serves as the warning sign for oncoming leaks and discolored water which can sometimes be dangerous.
You may begin to notice leakages on the floor and around the tank. The leakages are often as a result of expansions to the metal in the tank. These expansions occur over time as the inner–body of the tank is exposed to thousands upon thousands of heating cycles. The expansions then cause fractures and gaps that can no longer hold the water once the reheating starts, hence cause the leakages.
This is a common occurrence when a water heater nears the end of its life expectancy.
