Water Heater

Water Heater Install Portland

While we are well-versed in repairing main lines and water lines in homes, we also have the experience to fix water heaters effectively as well. Water heaters have a typical lifespan of at least ten years but can become worn down over time. There are various signs that can indicate that the water heater in your home may be experiencing problems, including:

Rusty Water

Water running out of the spigot that’s tainted with rust is a common indicator that the heater is rusting from the inside, and the corrosion can eventually result in a leak if left unchecked.

Noises Coming From Inside The Water Heater

Rumbling and loud sounds being emitted from the inside of the water heater is often caused by the buildup of sediment. This material inside of the water heater prevents it from running effectively, causing the heater to eventually fail if it isn’t fixed.

Water Puddles On The Floor

If you see water on the floor near a water heater, try to determine if the leak is coming from the appliance. Once a water heater tank starts leaking it needs to be replaced by professionals.

If any of these symptoms can be found in your home, call Apollo Drain & Rooter Service for assistance. We’ll inspect your water heater and recommend the best approach for remedying the problem.

Water Heater Replacement Portland

With new technology and advancements, modern water heaters are more efficient than older systems. With new appliances saving up to 20% on energy usage, this results in customers being able to save a significant amount of money. At Apollo Drain & Rooter Service, we can install both electric or gas-powered water heaters in homes depending on our customer’s preference. In addition, we are also mindful of the various types of water heaters and how to safely install them:

Conventional:

New conventional water heaters usually have better insulation than old ones. With better insulation, the tank retains heat longer and uses less energy. New style glass liners resist the corrosion that can affect metal tanks. The most efficient tank water heaters have a thermal resistance rating of R-12 to R-25.

Tankless:

Tankless heaters provide hot water on demand. They don’t remain on standby, using energy to store hot water. Instead, when a person or appliance taps into a hot-water line, it turns on burners that heat the water as needed. This type of heater uses less energy than conventional water models. Because they don’t have a tank, these devices are compact and can be tucked into small spaces.

Hybrid:

Hybrid water heaters use energy-efficient, on-demand technology and also include a small reservoir. Like tankless models, hybrids heaters are energy efficient. Because they also have a tank, they provide a continuous supply of hot water.

Heaters come with different types of warranties, with a full one-year warranty being the most common. Limited warranties for certain failed components can run from 6 to 12 years. Newer heaters, especially those under warranty, are worth repairing, and at Apollo Drain & Rooter Service, we have the experience needed to service any type of water heater. We provide services for a wide array of manufacturers.
