Residential Water Heaters

Have you ever stepped into the shower before work only to be met by a blast of cold water? It’s unpleasant, to say the least. Call Desert Edge Plumbing, Ogden’s top water heater repair company. We’ll get your mirrors steamy again. 

Water Heater Repair

Residential water heaters last about 10 years, give or take a few years. If you regularly flush the tank to clean out the sediment, it can last longer — especially here in Utah, where we have hard water. 

In the meantime, you may need residential water heater repairs. These can include replacing the thermostat, heating element, anode rod or one of dozens of other parts. When your water heater is old and the cost of the parts is on par with a new water heater, we may recommend water heater replacement. 

Water Heater Replacement

When it’s time to call our water heater replacement company, that’s when you want to consider getting tankless water heater installation if you now have a traditional tank-style heater. Tankless water heaters, though more expensive, heat the water for you on demand. 

Tankless water heater installation is a money-saver not just because it uses much less energy, but also because these water heaters can last up to twice as long as tank-style heaters. Plus, they are much smaller. You’ll be able to store more items in your utility room when we mount your water heater to the wall. 

This being said, our tankless water heater installation company wants to point out that if you have a large household in which everyone is always taking showers, doing laundry and running the dishwasher, a tankless water heater may not be right for you. 

Water Heater Installation

Whether you are getting water heater replacement or you are building a new home in Ogden, you can count on Desert Edge Plumbing for water heater installation. We provide both gas and electric water heater installation services. 

The reason it is important to choose an experienced plumbing company for your water heater installation is because licensed plumbers will make sure the water heater is up to code, vented properly, and has an expansion tank and earthquake straps. Further, a licensed plumber provides proper installation, which is paramount to your water heater’s function. You also want to get the right size and style of water heater for your needs. 

For instance, we help you decide between tank-style and tankless water heater installation. Most tank-style water heaters are about the same size, but they have different BTU ratings, which means it takes some longer to heat the water than others. If multiple people in your household take showers every morning, one right after the other, you may need a residential water heater with more BTUs. 

Additionally, you will want to take your family’s growth potential into consideration. If you are a newly married couple, your hot water needs may be average, but if you plan to have children, your needs will grow exponentially as baths, laundry, dishes and other chores requiring water pile up.
