The 411 on Water Heaters

A residential water heater lasts about 10 years, give or take a few, while a commercial water heater can last 20 years. Flushing your water heater once a year to clean out the sediment at the bottom can help extend their lives, especially here in Utah, where our water is so hard. 

Minerals in the water settle to the bottom of your tank, creating a blanket of sorts that the heating element has to penetrate in order to heat the water. With these minerals in the way, the water heater has to work harder, and it may wear out faster, necessitating a water heater repair call. 

This is even the case with tankless water heaters. The piping inside a tankless water heater can eventually become clogged with minerals or even get rusty, so yearly flushing is a good idea. 

Gas & Electric Water Heater Repair

If they have a choice, most homeowners and business owners in Ogden choose gas water heaters over electric. Although gas water heaters cost more to buy, they cost much less to operate. However, in some remote locations, gas lines are not available, so consumers have no choice. 

Repairing a gas water heater takes a different skillset than an electric water heater. At Desert Edge Plumbing, our plumbers are certified to perform water heater repairs on both electric and gas models. 

Tankless Water Heater Repairs

Ten years ago, our plumbers did many fewer tankless water heater repairs than they do now. Although tankless water heaters are not new technology, only now are they beginning to catch on with homeowners and businessowners. 

Tankless water heaters are extremely efficient, saving consumers energy and money by heating water on demand, rather than keeping it hot all the time. They cost more to purchase, but they last almost twice as long as a tank-style water heater, and they take up much less space in your home. They are mighty little workhorses, but from time to time, you may need tankless water heater repairs. 

Urgent Water Heater Repairs

As annoying as it is to turn on your shower in the morning and be greeted only with cold water, a broken water heater is even worse when you operate a business such as a restaurant or health care facility. In these instances, your business is effectively shut down until you can get water heater repair.
