Nothing can ruin your morning like turning on the shower to find you have no hot water. Not having enough H2O to do dishes or laundry makes those chores nearly impossible, too.
Signs of a Hot Water Heater Problem
The signs of a water heater leaking are obvious, but other problems may not be. Watch out for the following signs of water heater problems:
- Water runs cold during shower
- Rumbling or other strange sounds from unit
- Rust-colored water from faucets
- Foul odor resembling rotten eggs
Whatever issue you’re experiencing, MET Plumbing can help. Water heater maintenance and service, repairs, and water heater replacement (standard and tankless models) are what we do. Whether you need us to install a water heater for your new bathroom addition or replace a water heater that has seen better days—you can count on us to take care of it!
The Dangers of a DIY Hot Water Heater Installation
Repairing or replacing a water heater yourself seems harmless enough, but it’s important to know that disconnecting plumbing lines can emit odorless gases that are poisonous. A faint odor resembling the smell of garlic is a sign of a gas leak. If you experience this, turn off your pilot light and call us immediately. A gas leak must be handled by a professional, and we have the equipment and experience to do it correctly and safely.
While it may be tempting to save a few dollars on a DIY water heater replacement, it’s best to leave this kind of job to the experts.
Tankless Water Heaters Reduce Energy Costs
Heating water makes up around 30 percent of the average person’s household energy budget—that’s a lot of energy devoted solely to providing your family with hot water! Tankless water heaters are, on average, 22 percent more efficient than conventional models. Installing a tankless water heater is an investment in your home that can help you reduce your energy costs immediately. Call us for tankless water heater installation, and start saving today.
