Palm Beach Water Heater Installers
A water heater is essential equipment in every home. Without it, you will not be able to enjoy your washing, showering, doing dishes and so on.
Before purchasing any new water heater, there are various factors that you need to consider such as the water heater capacity, warranty, the type of water in your premises – soft water tends to be tough on water heaters because of its corrosive effect on the sacrificial anode, hence higher chances of failure before even the warrant is over. You will also need to consult a professional or a manufacturer in order to fully understand the regulations and also gain helpful tips and advice.
At Palm Beach Water Heater Installers, we provide various types of water heaters that you could choose from based on your preference. We also offer both residential and commercial water heater services.
Below are some of our products with their descriptions:
Solar powered water heaters
These are designed for people who lean towards green energy or are looking for alternative sources of energy. We mount a cell on the roof of your house, where the cell then absorbs the sun’s heat and transfers it to an antifreeze-like fluid in a closed-loop system, that runs to the water tank. The best thing about the solar powered water heater is that this equipment will save you a lot of money during summer. Also, most models employ a backup system that kicks in when needed.
These water heaters are specially designed for people who are not drawing water for more than one use at a time, for example, running a shower and dishwasher simultaneously. They also come highly recommended for homes that use natural gas to heat the water. Tankless water heaters use heating coils to heat the water as you need it. They are more energy-efficient than the regular storage tanks, in that they provided only limited flow of hot water per minute.
Liquid Petroleum gas water heaters
Liquid Petroleum gas water heaters or commonly known as L.P gas water heaters are a good alternative to traditional gas or electric water heaters. These water heaters typically use even less energy than electric water heaters. You can enjoy a steady supply of comfortably hot water because thick insulation keeps the tank warm, while the cobalt-blue glass lining protects the tank from corrosion.
Most of electric water heaters are of standard type. A typical electric unit is wired to a volt circuit. To heat the water, the current passes through electrical-resistance heating elements—usually two, one at the middle of the tank and one at the bottom. Power is then delivered to each element through a thermostat—a switch that senses the water temperature. When the temperature drops, the switch closes to allow current flow and it opens when the temperature reaches its preset limit.
Natural gas water heaters
Natural gas water heaters operate identically with a gas or propane burner located at the bottom of the storage tank heating the water. Emissions from natural fuel fired water heaters are expelled using a variety of venting technologies. Atmospheric vented systems use room air as combustion air and exhaust air. The exhaust air is expelled through the exhaust flue by buoyancy forces resulting from the combustion.
Hybrid water heaters
These water heaters combine the technology of tank and tankless conventional hot water heaters. However, this technology varies by the model you choose. Hybrid water heaters use multiple passes of the heat and water to warm up more efficiently where pipes heat up and then the water flows around them for quick heating. And, unlike a tankless system, the hybrid heater contains a reservoir to hold some water at all times, so you never run out of hot water.
Apart from offering these products, we also offer services such as water heater installations, maintenance and repairs.
Installation and maintenance
To optimize the energy efficiency of your water heater, proper installation and maintenance must be observed. In order to do this, we engage our team of specialists to study several factors in your home area such as climate, fuel type, building type, code requirements and safety issues. After installation, we advise on any additional energy-saving strategies to help lower your water heating bills. Some energy-saving devices and systems are more cost-effective to install with the water heater.
Water heater repairs
In most homes, water heaters are usually overlooked until they stop working and people get stuck with cold showers. It is important to look out for the following signs in order to know that your water heater needs repairs.
- Water heater leakages
Until you visually inspect your water heater on regular bases, you may miss a case of leakage in your home. Most people rarely check on their water heaters until the hot water runs out. It is important to incorporate a quick scan once in a while for leaks – regularly check the pipes and any other appliance connected to the water heater.
- Fluctuating water heat
Water that is sometimes hot, too hot or cold is definitely a clue that something is wrong with your water heater. This may mean that mineral deposits have built up around your water heater’s heating elements or that the heating elements need to be repaired or replaced.
- Weird sounds
A little humming noise from your water heater is natural. However, other sounds emanated from your water heater will be a cause for alarm. In most cases, mineral deposits have built up and caused the appliance to overheat as it works to keep the water hot. If the tank hasn’t already started leaking, a flush and thorough cleaning may be enough to keep it working.
- Low hot water pressure
In most cases, mineral deposits are a major culprit to low hot water pressure. These mineral deposits build up enough to block pipes, reducing the water pressure coming out of your water heater. Another issue could be compromised distribution lines or poorly designed water heaters.
- Rusty water
You may first notice odd odors or taste to your water before realizing that something is really wrong with your water heater. Visible rust or a metallic taste in your water means corrosion somewhere along the lines. If your hot water and cold water are rusty when they come out of the tap, the corrosion is probably somewhere in your pipes. If only the hot water is rusty, odds are good that the problem is inside the water heater. This means that you need professional assistance before it damages the tank or causes it to fail.
Water heater replacement
In majority of households, the availability of hot running water is vital to everyday living. An average person can utilize hot water up to 20 times per day. Taking into consideration this usage by each household member places the water heater under huge demand.
Sometimes, by only repairing your water heater may not be sufficient for future usage. If your water heater is older than 10 years, it is time for a replacement. The following are signs that indicate when it is time to replace your water heater.
- The water no longer heats to adequate levels
Warm and hot water are among the most vital household necessities. When you are used to a certain temperature of warm or hot water, you can easily tell when something is off balance. Your water heater performance may not be as it used to, for instance you may have several broken heating elements or your tank is too small for the size of your house.
- An unending noise from the water heater
As most water heaters age, you may start getting rumbling noises emanating louder and louder each day as the tank heats up the water. In households that consume larger amounts of water, this problem is likely to be more pronounced. Noises from the water heater are mainly caused by sediment build up. Due to the constant heating and reheating of water, sediment starts to form at the bottom of the tank. Over time, the sediment hardens and grows thicker along the tank floor, wearing a water heater down rapidly.
- Rusty water
A lot of water heaters are made of solid steel. However, steel has a major weakness – rust. When corrosion takes hold on the steel surface, it slowly spreads and eats through the steel in certain spots. On water pipes and tanks made of steel, rust serves as the warning sign for oncoming leaks and discolored water which can sometimes be dangerous.
- Your water heater is too old
Most people are unaware when a water heater has passed its time of usage. The average time for a water heater is between 8 – 10 years. While ten is the age at which heater replacement is generally recommended, the actual need to replace a heater could arise before this timeline because not all water heaters have a life expectancy of up to 10 years.
- Water around the heater
In order to establish this problem, you may begin to notice leakages on the floor and around the tank. This is a common occurrence when a water heater nears the end of its life expectancy. The leakages are often as a result of expansions to the metal in the tank. These expansions occur over time as the inner–body of the tank is exposed to thousands upon thousands of heating cycles. The expansions then cause fractures and gaps that can no longer hold the water once the reheating starts, hence cause the leakages.
