When you step into the shower you expect to have hot water. Unfortunately, you cannot always tell when your water heater is going to fail you. Whether that failure is due to mechanical breakdown, or due to an insufficient size for your household, the result is the same; no hot water when you need it. As soon as you find yourself without hot water you should first check to make sure that the pilot is lit and operating properly. Relighting the pilot light can save you hundreds of dollars in repair costs if that is the problem. However, if the pilot is lit, or you cannot seem to get the pilot lit, you will need to contact a plumber as soon as possible.
Water heaters in Gig Harbor come in varying tank sizes and styles. In fact, some water heaters do not have standard tanks at all. The new tankless water heaters in Gig Harbor will provide your home with an endless supply of water without a bulky tank being set up in your home. Many people are turning to tankless water heaters as a way to reduce the occurrence of hot water shortages in their homes.
With a tankless water heater, the water will flow over a system of heated coils as it enters your home. This means that the water will not be heated up and left sitting in a containment tank until you need it. The water is heated only once the hot water faucet is turned on. One drawback to tankless water heaters is that the flow through the faucets can be slightly slower than with traditional tank water heaters. If you have a particularly large home, you can have several tankless systems set up in your home, so that each bathroom has its own source of hot water.
When it is time to consider a new water heater in your home, you should discuss the options that are available to you. Your plumber will be able to help you select the best one for your home and family needs. Whether it is a tankless water heater, or a standard tank unit, your plumber will be able to provide you with quality installation and service.
