Tank Water Heaters in Sacramento, CA
What type of water heater supplies your household with the hot water necessary for so many daily tasks? Is it a water heater with a large tank that holds the supply of heated water for use? This is what’s known as a storage tank water heater, and it’s the most common water heater model found in the country. Other types of water heaters are now available for residential use, but there are good reasons you may wish to stick to the tried n’ true the next time you’re looking for a water heater installation.
But no matter if you want a replacement hot water tank, repairs for one that’s not working right, or routine maintenance service, Crystal Blue Plumbing, Heating & Air has you covered. We work with electric and gas tank water heaters in Sacramento, CA and the surrounding areas. We are dedicated, experienced, and follow a strict code of ethics so we can provide “Customer Service the Way It Used to Be!”
Gas Tank or Electric Tank Water Heater?
Although tank water heaters can be designed to use fuel sources as diverse as wood pellets to liquid propane, the majority are electric or gas models. Gas tank water heaters are the most common type: they cost less to run than electric water tank water heaters because natural gas is a less expensive energy source, and they also provide fast heating of water when the supply is depleted.
However, there are some reasons to look into an electric model. The most obvious one is because your home doesn’t have a gas line. But there are a few other benefits, such as longer lifespans and operation without dangers from toxic gas leaks or combustion. The best way to make the right choice is to work with professionals from the start.
Repairs for a Tank Water Heater
If you treat a water heater right, you can expect 15 or more years of service from it. But that doesn’t mean the hot water tank or other parts of the system will never need to have repair service during that time. Watch closely for the following signs it’s time to call professionals for water heater repairs:
- A drop in hot water volume or water temperature
- Water pooling around the tank, or any signs of leaking
- Corrosion appearing on the tank
- Rumbling sounds from within tank
- Reddish–brown discoloration in the hot water
- A large spike in heating bills
