If you find that you are not having enough hot water in your home, particularly in the morning when everyone is trying to get their showers in, you may have a tendency to think that you need to call in the professional plumbing company and have them come in for a water heater repair job. However, this alone may not be enough to take care of the issue of not enough hot water.
If the issue is not enough hot water, there is a good chance that your hot water heater is undersized for your home and that you are going to need a new hot water heater. While you could replace the one that you have you may find that having it repaired and fine tuned and then having another one installed beside it is the best solution for the problem that you are having.
Hot water heaters are only capable of putting out so much hot water for any given period of time and when you reach the end of that you have reached the end of it. However, if you have a second one put in you are going to find that you have a lot larger capacity of how much hot water you can produce in a certain amount of time. This means essentially that you do not have to worry when your teenage daughter will not get out of the shower or your son is taking too long because he is playing in the shower. The hot water will go a lot farther and everyone is bound to be a lot happier about this scenario.
If you are interested in trying this you should contact the plumbing company before they come to fix the one and let them know of your plans and discuss with them the best solution options that are out there that can help you accomplish this very thing. They will be more than happy to do that and to bring the things that they need to make that happen while they are there to fix the other one. This will save you some money in another, separate trip charge. It also makes it easier for them to install the new one at the same time that they are fixing the other one. If they were to come in and do the new installation after the water heater repair you would find that they had to undo some of the things that they had done when they were there originally. Because of that, this is a much better way to go.
