Your water heater is responsible for heating up all the water you use in your home every day.  Not only do you rely on it to take showers and wash your hands, your dishwasher and washing machine use the hot water provided as well.  Without hot water, all of these tasks would be much more difficult to accomplish.  When your water heater isn’t working properly, it is best to call the professionals at Mr. Rooter in Noblesville right away, before you are completely without hot water.  The team at Mr. Rooter are the experts when it comes to installing, repairing and maintaining your water heater, we will even help you choose the one that is best for your family.  When the experienced plumbers of Mr. Rooter inspect your water heater for problems, we will attempt to repair them and if this is not possible, install your new water heater that will better fit your needs.

When your water heater first begins to show problems, it is important to know what to pay attention to.  If your water heater is making loud noises, leaking or sweating on the outside of the tank, these are all signs that you should call Mr. Rooter.  Many times, what is noticed is simply that you don’t have enough hot water to complete all the tasks you need hot water for.  If you begin to notice a decrease in your hot water or if your water takes a significant time to heat up, it is time to call Mr. Rooter.  Other reasons to consider a new water heater are if yours is simply not large or effective enough for your family.  This could mean that your family has grown or you have moved into a house with a water heater that doesn’t meet your needs.  There are many different sizes and two different types of water heaters and there is one that will match your household needs perfectly and provide enough hot water for everything you need on a daily basis.

The two main types of water heaters are traditional and tankless.  With a traditional model, your water heater is a large tank that is either installed in a closet or in your garage. These tanks come in many different sizes, depending upon how much hot water you need determines how large a tank you should have.  While tank style water heaters are found more often in homes, it is only because they have been used for a longer period of time.  Downsides to the traditional model include evaporation, sediment in the tank and lack of enough hot water.  Water is kept heated in the tank until you need to use it.  Since the water can evaporate or cool down when it is not used, there can be unnecessary costs to your water and electricity bills.  Since the tank can only hold so much water, there is also the risk of using it all and then having to wait until more water is heated.  With a tankless model, the water is heated as you need it and therefore can never run out.  Because the water is not stored in a tank, there is no risk for evaporation.  Because of this, using a tankless model can save you many dollars on your water and electricity bills each month.  Tankless models are also much smaller and can be installed almost anywhere, saving you valuable storage space within the home.  Since the tankless models have so many benefits, they are becoming more and more popular in new construction and remodels, as well as replacement of traditional water heaters.  When you call Mr. Rooter of Noblesville, we will help you decide which water heater is the best for you, and then get it installed correctly, safely and quickly.
