You don’t spend much of your time thinking about water heaters, but if something goes wrong, you can’t get your water heater off your mind. Maybe you have a plumbing issue and need an expansion tank, or your water heater isn’t working properly and it needs to be serviced or repaired. You also might need a new appliance altogether. Whatever your needs, JD’s Plumbing Service can help. We will come out to your Arvada home, provide an estimate, and get to work for you.
Arvada Water Heater Repairs
If you have a tank water heater, it’s expected to last around 10 years. However, if you fail to service it, it will likely have to be replaced well before that. That’s why it’s so important to contact JD’s Plumbing Service at the first sign of an issue.
We have the equipment necessary to diagnose all water heater issues. Then, we will go over the repair options with you. In many cases, we can repair the water heater, so it functions as normal once again. In some cases, though, we might recommend that you upgrade your water heater. For instance, if you have a gas water heater and the burner is defective, it’s more cost-effective to get a new water heater. On the other hand, if you have an electric water heater and the heating element has failed, we can replace it at little cost to you. We will go over all your options and help you make a decision.
Protect Your Plumbing with a Hot Water Expansion Tank
Safety is always an issue when dealing with hot water issues. Standard water heaters put a lot of pressure on the plumbing system. Water expands when it’s heated, and that expansion can lead to pressure damage on your home’s pipes. If you think this is a problem for you, we can install a water heater expansion tank. This tank handles the excess water that’s created by thermal expansion. It will protect your home’s pipes and fixtures and also protect your water heater.
Do You Need an Upgrade Even if It’s Not Broken?
Some of our Arvada clients require water heater upgrades, even if their existing water heaters are still functional. That’s because needs change over time, and they need new water heaters to meet their new demands.
For example, if your family size has changed, you might need a new hot water heater. The tank might not be large enough to supply water to your growing family, so an upgrade makes sense.
The same is often true with remodeling projects. If you’re adding new sinks and bathrooms to your home, you might need a new water heater to meet the demand. We can go over your specific needs with you and help you determine if your existing water heater has what it takes to deliver an adequate amount of hot water.
Choosing an Upgrade
JD’s Plumbing Service is skilled in all types of water tanks. Many of our Arvada clients choose tankless water heaters, though. We often recommend this type of water heater due to all the benefits. Tankless water heaters heat water on demand, so they only heat the water when you need it. That saves on energy and also means you’ll never run out of hot water.
Also, because a tank isn’t used, you don’t have to worry about thermal expansion, so an expansion tank isn’t needed.
Most importantly, these water heaters are long lasting. Tank water heaters typically last around 10 years. Many people with tankless water heaters use them for twice that amount of time. That means they install them and forget about them.
