Residential Water Heaters in Denver, CO
Did you know that your water heater is actually one of the hardest working systems you own? It may seem like it’s the heater or the air conditioner, but think about how often you use your water heater. If you’re like most Americans, you use the water heater multiple times a day, every day, all year-round.
That’s a massive amount of demand for a system to deal with, which is why it’s important that you find the best contractor you can to maintain it for you. Cooper Heating & Cooling, Inc. offers water heater services of all kinds throughout Denver, CO. If you need a hot water heater installed or serviced, call today to schedule an appointment with one of our plumbers. We service all kinds, including electric water heaters and gas water heaters.
Signs You Need a New Water Heater
Chances are, you already have a water heater installed in your home. Sooner or later, though, you’re going to need to install a new system to replace the old one. There are a number of signs that you should look for to indicate that you need a new water heater. For example:
- Loss of Output: Any water heater can become exhausted, if you put it under enough demand for a long enough period of time. If your water heater starts to display a steady loss of output potential over time, though, it probably means the system is wearing down. If your water heater can’t provide enough hot water for a shower anymore, for example, you probably need a new one.
- Repairs: Every water heater is going to need repairs every once in a while. Those times should be few and far between, though. If you need to repair your water heater multiple times a year, especially if something new breaks each time, it means you need a new system.
- Age: Water heaters tend to last around 15 years, on average. If your water heater is older than that, it’s going to be much more likely to develop problems. It’s much more cost effective in the long run to replace water heaters that have passed 15 years of age. Talk to your plumber about whether a new water heater would be best for you.
How to Keep Your Water Heater in Good Shape
Okay, so say you have a brand new water heater installed. How do you get the best return on investment out of it? There are two things that you need to do. First, you need to schedule maintenance for it at least once a year. As we mentioned above, water heaters have to deal with a massive amount of wear and tear on their systems. The best way to deal with that wear and tear, and limit potential problems in the future, is annual preventive maintenance.
The second thing you need to do is to schedule repairs if a problem happens to occur between maintenance appointments. Don’t wait before calling for repairs! The faster we can repair the system, the better off the water heater will be. Cooper Heating & Cooling, Inc. offers water heater services of all kinds throughout Denver, CO.
