Different Models Perform the Same Duties
The main different in water heaters is the method by which they do their job. Tanked models use a large tank which it heats up via a series of burners, while tankless systems use heated coils wrapped around pipes that the water passes through on the way to the faucet. Heat pump water heaters facilitate heat exchanges with the outside air to warm their water, helped out by circulating refrigerant. They all perform the same task, but they use radically different means to do with. When it comes to installation and repairs, you should never trust a one–size–fits–all approach to them.
Most homes still use tank heaters because they’re eminently reliable and do their jobs without complaint. That can sometime lead to complacency, however, which means you should always have yours serviced at least once a year. If anything usual crops up, from strange noises to discolored water, pick up the phone and call Bud Matthews Services right away!
Tankless water heaters involve a more complicated installation process than tanked models, and because they have more complicated components, they tend to need repairs more often. But because they don’t need to heat an entire tank full of water, they use much less energy than tanked models, and installing one may be a perfect fit for your home.
Head pump water heaters use the principles of air conditioning to heat your water: heating refrigerant and transferring the heat into the water supply. They require specialized technique to fix when repairs are needed, but like tankless systems, make up for it with inexpensive heating costs.
Water Heater Repair Needs to Take Place the Right Way
Repairing a water heater means taking a hard look at the problem and determining the best method of resolving it. A faulty valve or a leaky connector pipe is one thing, but if the trouble is more significant, you need a service that will not only fix it, but will make sure it stays fixed and that you can go forward without worrying that your water heater will encounter the same problem again a few months later. There’s no point in running all over town looking for the right service, when all you have to do is contact Bud Matthews Services. We can conduct any kind of repair your system may need and we’ll discuss your options with you beforehand so you know whether repairs are practical or if replacing the water heater might not be better.
Water Heater Services Begin and End with Maintenance
The variety of water heaters available means that you need a service with the knowledge and experience to handle them all. That means setting up an annual maintenance session that checks for potential problems before they get started. A plumbing technician can do wonders simply by tightening loose valves, draining sediment out of the tank, replacing the anode rod, and similar steps. By trusting a professional to do it, you can rest assured knowing that those little details are taken care of, and if further repairs are needed, they can spot those problems when they’re still small enough to be treated easily. Bud Matthews Services has the personnel to handle the issue properly. Give us a call today, and let us show you what a difference we can make!
