A water heater is an appliance that’s easy to forget about—until you’re taking cold showers. And by then, it’s too late for preventive maintenance. That’s why it’s important to call in your local NexLvl Services plumber when your water heater shows signs of trouble. We'll address the issue with a prompt, thorough repair backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
Water Heater Repair
If you’re noticing your hot water isn’t as hot as you’d like it to be or notice discolored water from the hot water tap, it might be time to get your hot water heater checked out. Over time, water heaters often suffer from sediment build-up that can damage the tank. To remove these sediments, it may be necessary to drain and flush your tank. Some DIY-ers can do this themselves, but we recommend that a professional perform this task to avoid any potential issues.
If you spot metal or rust in your tank’s water, call NexLvl Services immediately. These particles may indicate that your water heater needs to be replaced. The anode rod’s purpose is to be sacrificial by design to attract corrosive chemicals in the water and keep them from rusting the tank liner.
If the water heater liner corrodes, the unit can start leaking—and if the drain pan under the water heater is old or incorrectly installed, you may end up with water damage to your floors, ceilings or wall, depending on the location of your appliance.
Caution: Be sure to turn off the power at your circuit breaker or shut off the gas before doing any kind of water heater inspection.
Water Heater Installation
Installing a new water heater used to be relatively straightforward: take out the old one and replace it with a newer model. Today, you have more options to consider, many of which can improve energy efficiency and the green living profile of your home while saving you money at the same time. Typically, you’ll have a choice between gas, electric, tankless, and even solar-powered water heaters.
Choose the right water heater for you:
More options can be a blessing and a curse. On one hand, you’re more likely to get exactly what you want without having to compromise. On the other, you’ll have to do more research to understand the pros and cons of each type of water heater and which ones comply with the latest Department of Energy water heater standards. Luckily, the expert plumbers at your local NexLvl Services can guide you through the process. Here are a few things to consider when you’re shopping for a new water heater:
Number of people living in your home (hot water demand)
How well your old unit supplied your demand
Fuel type, availability and cost
Estimated energy efficiency of various models
Length of warranty
Maintenance and repair information
Cost of unit as it relates to annual operating cost
Local municipal code requirements
Energy efficiency considerations:
Although gas and electric water heaters can lose some efficiency because water is constantly being heated in the tank, current efficiency standards are much improved over the past. Spending a little extra upfront will give you a more efficient water heater, saving you money in the long run. Look for an R-12 to R-25 insulation rating.
With gas tankless water heaters, you can save money by not heating and reheating the same water in the tank.
