Most of us are familiar with the traditional tank water heater. Cold water coming in is stored in a tank and then heated via gas, propane, or electricity. When the water in the tank starts to cool, the fuel source kicks in to heat the water again, so you always have hot water on demand when you turn on the faucet. Because they are more energy efficient, tankless water heaters have recently become the more popular choice for new homes.
Water Heater Repair
Having problems with your water heater? If you’re experiencing any of these issues with your water heater, you should have it inspected by a trained plumber.
- No hot water
- Lukewarm water
- Slow hot water after someone “uses all the hot water”
- Strange noises from inside the water heater (a popping or banging sound)
- Pilot light keeps going out
- Leaking tank
- Water heater is more than 6 years old
We recommend regular maintenance to keep your water heater running smoothly for many years. A lot of bigger problems can be prevented if you address them early on.
Water Heater Installation
Your new hot water heater should only be installed by a professional, fully-licensed plumber. At Kramer & Company Mechanical, we have several Northwest Arkansas water heater installation and repair experts available for you. While water heater installation may sound like a simple DIY project, we highly encourage you to call an expert. We answer dozens of calls every year from homeowners who have tried to fix or replace their own water heaters — that we then need to correct.
It is always more cost-efficient to have the work done correctly the first time.
Because water heater installation can be complicated, there is also the risk of gas leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning, water damage, and shock. Don’t take chances when it comes to your home or your family. Trust the experts at Kramer & Company Mechanical to do the job right.
New Water Heater Standards
Did you know that the federal government is mandating new Energy Factor requirements for water heaters? And the effective date (April 16, 2015) has already passed!
These new water heater standards have been a game-changer for our company… but what does that mean to our customers?
The good news for you – the homeowner – is that these new products are more energy efficient, lowering your operating costs. It also means that the new “face” of water heaters (potentially larger size and more sophisticated design) may force a re-location in your home and/or an increase in installation costs. One impact is an increase in overall tank size – by up to two (2) inches in diameter and one to two (1-2) inches in height. Units over 55 gallons will have to use condensing technology.
Give us a call at 479-855-6161. We’d be happy to meet with you and discuss the best options for your next water heater installation whether it be tankless, gas, or electric.
