When you’re sitting around the water cooler at work, you probably don’t talk about water heaters. Water heaters typically stay out of sight and out of mind until something happens. You don’t think about your water heater until you can’t get hot water or your utility room is flooded. Then, you find yourself searching for a Westminster water heater company. JD’s Plumbing is family-owned and operated, and we can handle all your water heater needs. Whether you need a repair or you’re ready to upgrade to a new appliance, we are the company for you.
We Fix Water Heater Problems
You turn on the shower and wait for the hot water to hit you, but it never comes. You immediately realize there is something wrong with your water heater. JD’s Plumbing Service is the first call you should make. We will come out and diagnose the problem quickly. If it can be repaired, we will fix it and let you get back into the shower. However, if the repair is cost prohibitive, we will talk about replacement options for you.
We also handle water heater leaks and all other issues. If your appliance isn’t working as it should contact us so we can get started.
We Protect Your Plumbing
JD’s Plumbing Service is made up of plumbing experts with years and years of experience. That experience allows us to diagnose problems that many others miss. One common problem has to do with the water heater’s impact on the plumbing.
When your water heater heats water up, the water expands through a process called thermal expansion. This process causes the water to increase in volume when it’s heated. This puts a lot of pressure on the water tank, and in turn, the tank puts pressure on the home’s plumbing. If you don’t do anything about it, you could end up having to replace your water heater and your plumbing.
Contact JD’s Plumbing Service so we can come out and determine if you have an issue. If you do, we can add a hot water expansion tank. This tank will handle the overflow, so the pressure won’t build up. Then, you won’t have to worry about replacing your plumbing or your water heater earlier than normal.
What About Water Heater Upgrades?
While many of our Westminster clients just need repairs or expansion tanks, some want an upgrade. There are many reasons to get an upgrade from our company.
If you’re undergoing a home remodel, it might be time for an upgrade. Remodels often include additional bathrooms, so you will need more hot water than you needed in the past. Your existing hot water tank might not be able to handle the additional demand.
A new addition to the family is another reason to get an upgrade. If more people live in your home than when you first installed the hot water heater, you might need a larger tank, or you might even prefer to go with a tankless water heater.
Finally, it might just be time to replace your water heater. Tank water heaters are expected to last around 10 years, but that is not a set rule. Some last longer, while others don’t last as long, typically because they were not properly serviced.
If you’re ready for an upgrade, consider going with a tankless water heater. A tankless water heater is an on-demand water heater. That means it heats up the water when you need it instead of keeping it hot all day and all night. This uses less energy and ensures you have enough hot water at all times. It can easily accommodate your growing family or home, and it lasts longer than a tank water heater does. In fact, many people report these water heaters last twice as long.
