Traditional Hot Water Heaters

Crystal Blue Plumbing Heating and AirThe capability of a water heater to meet peak demands for hot water is indicated by its “first hour rating.” This rating accounts for the effects of tank size and the speed by which cold water is heated. The energy efficiency of a water heater is indicated by its energy factor (EF), an overall efficiency based on the use of 64 gallons of hot water per day. The most efficient gas-fired water heaters have energy factors ranging from 0.58 to 0.65. The most efficient electric water heaters have energy factors ranging between 0.90 and 0.95. The higher the energy factor the more efficient the model.

Water heaters with high energy factor ratings may cost more initially but save energy and money in the long run. Eventually, they will pay for themselves through a lifetime of energy savings. We recommend using Bradford White, AO Smith, State, Rheem and Rudd water heaters, but we service and repair all types and brands of hot water heaters.



Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters provide an unlimited amount of hot water. They do not get you hot water faster. You see the hot water still needs to travel to the demanding fixture just as with a tanked water heater. They major benefit of tank-less water heaters is they only heat the water when you need it. Saving you tons of cash with your water heating bills. Check out our tankless water heater video on our Crystal Blue Plumbing Tankless water heater page.

Water Heater Repairs & Replacement

These Citrus Heights water heater repairs can be classified in different categories, including parts or full replacements. This is due to the fact that a water heater may be one part but it is actually consisted of a number of internal parts that are working in perfect timing together to do the one function that the heater is designed to do – provide heating to the water for bathing or any other purposes in the household. When one of these parts becomes erratic, everything else is jeopardized. At the first sign of error, then, it is best to hire the help of experts in the area.

Common Water Heater Problems

Hot water not staying hot- Most likely the heating element in the water heater is not allowing the proper mixture of hot and cold. Some other possibilities could be a bad thermostat. Have a Citrus Heights professional take a look at the water heater and consider replacing the water heater, depending on age.

No hot water- If you have no hot water coming from your gas water heater. First check to make sure your water heater pilot light is lit. Confirm your water heater gas shut off valve is in the open position. On an electric water heater, make sure the red reset button is pushed in. This could have popped out because of faulty controls. Common fixes for no hot water are replacing thermo coupler, Gas valve or upper or lower thermostats on an electric water heater.

Pilot Light won’t stay lit- If your gas water heater pilot light won’t stay lit it most likely is your thermo coupler. Be careful of drafts or wind gusts that might have blown out the pilot light. Relight the water heater and monitor the pilot light. If it goes out again, call a


Citrus Heights Plumber and have the thermo coupler replaced.

Leaky T & P Valve- You’re T&P Valve (temperature and pressure relief valve) is an emergency relief valve usually on the top or top/side

of the water heater. The T&P is there to keep your water heater from exploding due to much water pressure or water temperature. A leaking T&P can mean your water heater is not operating properly or simply could be a bad or faulty T&P valve. Either way I recommend contacting a Citrus Heights water heater specialist as soon as you can.

Leaky Drain Port- There’s nothing more annoying than a leaking drain port. Most of the time in Citrus Heights California, it’s caused by hard

water corroding the port. Sometimes, it’s only a faulty port. In extreme water heater cases it could be caused by to cold water, which means an element isn’t working correctly. Remember not to over tighten the drain port. If it persists have a water heater expert take a look at your water heater.

Water Heater Smelling Bad- Water starting to smell bad like a rotten egg or sulfur is usually a bad anode rod. Have a professional take a look at your water heater and replace the anode rod if your water heater is less than 5 years old. If your water heater is 5 years old or greater consider replacing your water heater.

Noisy Water Heaters- When your Citrus Heights water heater starts making noises it usually means your water heater is at the end of its life. If your water heater is older than 5 years you probably should consider replacing. Noises are usually caused by sediment at the bottom, broken anode or element or a pressure situation. A water heater with a pressure problem might require a expansion tank. Have a water heater expert examine water heater to determine cause of the noises.

Water all around Water Heater (leaky water heater)- Suddenly you notice water on the floor all around your water heater. First check the top of the water heater to see if the water supply lines are leaking down to the water heater.

Next, check to see if the T&P valve is in the open position allowing water to escape. Last take off the front panel to locate water coming down the tank. Unfortunately if the water heater is leaking from the tank it’s over. Shut the emergency water shut off valve off and replace the leaky water heater at once.

Running out of Hot Water- Nothing worse than being in the shower all soaped up and run out of hot water. This could be an undersized water heater or too much sediment build up, limiting the amount of actual heated water. On electric water heaters, the element could be going bad. I recommend having a Citrus Heights Hot Water Heater expert evaluate your hot water usage for proper water heater recommendations. * Note: Tank-less water heater never run out of hot water.

Takes too long to get Hot Water- If you turn on your hot water and start to read a book while you wait for the water to get hot, something is not right. In California we often flirt with drought conditions and wasting water is not good. Most of the time pipes are not insulated well or at all. Major issues could mean your plumbing system is undersized. Don’t fret there are many options available. Talk with our Citrus Heights water heater experts about possible options to get your hot water quicker. *Note: That Tank-less Water Heaters do not get your hot water to you quicker, they just do not run out of hot water.
