Water Heater Repair & Maintenance
Water heaters require maintenance. A water heater is used every day, yet we don’t often think of it — until it goes out and we have no hot water or it leaks and causes damage. The buildup of sediment and scale from the water inside your water heater causes it to lose efficiency over the years and can cause premature tank failure. This can be addressed by flushing your water heater regularly.
Today’s water heaters are more efficient, safer, and create fewer pollutants, as manufacturing regulations have increased. This is important for your safety and the environment however, there is a trade off. Newer water heaters require more regular maintenance because the devices built into them to make them safer and environmentally friendlier require regular cleaning and testing.
Our quality technicians are factory trained, so if your water heater breaks down, we have the knowledge and expertise to repair any make and model. However, we recommend you avoid repairs and untimely breakdowns by taking advantage of our preventative maintenance programs.
Water Heater Replacement
Water heater installations are our specialty and there are many choices such as heat pump water heaters, tankless water heaters, 96% high efficient water heaters, or standard efficiency tank type water heaters. Our technicians will explain the differences and help you make the best choice for your home and family.
Tankless Water Heaters
On average, a tankless water heater (if installed correctly) can save up to 30% off of heating costs because they only heat water when you’re using it. Along with the manufacturer’s warranty, our installation guarantee, and scheduled water heater tune-ups, a new tankless water heater can last you for over twenty years. This is only one example of energy saving ideas we have for you at Ongaro & Sons Plumbing. Although tankless water heaters provide endless hot water and high efficiency, there are differences in how they function compared to conventional water heaters. So, it’s important to have a discussion with your Plumbing Technician to determine if a tankless water heater is right for you.
