Water Heater Repair & Replacement Options

So you think your household problems are over? You think you have everything under control? Are you finally taking a Saturday off to rest and relax? Think again. The toilet is clogged, your basement is flooding, mold is growing in the walls, your faucet leak finally broke the fitting, and the shower isn't getting any hot water. Plumbing is the source for water in your house, but also a whole lot of problems if you let it. The thing about plumbing is that it is no different than any other service or appliance in the house. It needs time and attention and regular maintenance to stay working properly. The only difference is that a lot of what goes on with your plumbing is out of sight and out of mind until that moment when something springs a leak. With water heater repair in Jersey City on the rise, we here at Roto-Rooter thought it would be a great idea to help out with some advice on how to care for a water heater so that it lasts longer, performs better, and has no failures for the life of the products. If that sounds good to you, then read on!

  • Water heaters take a beating. We use them all day long. After 24 hours a day and 7 days a week of nonstop use, water heaters eventually start to feel the strain of the constant need to heat a tank of water. Even when you are not around, the big noisy thing in the basement is keeping water hot so that warm water is there the second it is needed. As most water heaters last on average 11 years, consider a tank-less water heater as your next purchase. They generally last much longer (15-20 years), are less expensive, and only heat water on demand. The unit is installed in the waterline and heats water very quickly as it passes by. These units also use a lot less energy, so your bill this month will be a whole lot lower.
  • While a new unit will solve the problem every time, changing habits will save you money in the long run. Yearly inspections are absolutely necessary to keep your heating unit in ship shape. This regular attention and service will almost double the life of the product and even prevent any failures from happening during that time.
