Gastonia Water Heaters

Like your air conditioner, your water heater is the neglected heart of your house. When everything functions properly, there is never a need for thought. On a busy Monday morning when the water is cold, though, you suddenly recall that long-forgotten appliance that you have been neglecting because you have a “if it ain’t busted, don’t fix it” mentality. This is a common way of thinking, however by maintaining your appliance, you can increase its lifespan from 15 to even 20 years. Like a car, a water heater needs to be maintained. Although the water heater needs to be flushed, the car requires an oil change. Simple maintenance like draining your Gastonia water heaters once a year will significantly extend their useful life. After years of water flow through the device, silt will start to accumulate. After years of usage, sediment/debris from the water settles on the bottom of the heater, making it more difficult for the heater to heat the water, using more energy with less benefit. Imagine trying to boil water with a plate between the pot and the burner; it would take a lot longer and use more energy to get the water to boil. Most of the units we remove from Gastonia are covered with this sediment, particularly in Gastonia, North Carolina, where hard water is a major problem. In spite of the size and potential difficulty of servicing it, you will undoubtedly end up saving more money and extending the lifespan of your water heater.

A water heater should be repaired if it is between 8 and 10 years old, on average. While growing older may be equivalent to wasting money. A neglected water heater can develop numerous problems and become uneconomical to repair. Nonetheless, for the majority of typical problems, repairs are advised if routinely cleaned. Flushing your water heater extends both its life and improves the effectiveness of the appliance. There will be less trouble overall and less effort required to heat the water. Typical water heater problems are usually caused by infrequent maintenance. After two years, the burner assembly will require cleaning. Every year, the heater itself needs to be cleansed. These minor adjustments are both inexpensive and simple ways to maintain a vehicle and assist to avoid larger problems in the future. The typical homeowner can easily flush their own furnace. The average lifespan of a standard unit is between 10 and 15 years. The lifespan of a tankless unit, however, is 20 years or even more. While being more challenging to install, it offers assurance regarding numerous problems that water heaters currently have. We usually advise switching your traditional tank water heaters for tankless models because they last longer, consume less energy, are WIFI compatible for your techies, and provide an endless supply of hot water. This means you won’t ever have to worry about the tank running out again, whether you’re single or have 20 kids. You never again have to wait for hot water because it is heated instantaneously as it flows through the heater. Learn more about Tankless Water Heaters.

Maintenance for a longer lifespan

There are a few things you can do to enable the typical water heater to last up to 15 to 20 years, such as:

  • Flushing your water heaters in Gastonia stops the accumulation of dirt and improves fuel efficiency. Future tank leaks will also be less likely thanks to this. Typically, sediment collects in the bottom of the unit. It can gradually eat away at your tank’s interior, leading to tiny holes that leak into your house. The bases of water heaters have totally eaten through in some extremely extreme cases, flooding homes. Repairing a water heater leak that compromises the structural integrity of your house is not an inexpensive proposition.
  • The water pressure can be reduced to a maximum of 80 PSI by adding a PRV, or pressure reducing valve. This relieves stress on all of the home’s fixtures. The little drips you notice in your faucets and showers are caused by fixtures holding water that is pressurized above 80 PSI. Because they are not constantly holding back high water pressure, doing this extends the life of these fixtures. One of the main reasons for leaks in most homes is water pressure.
  • An expansion tank is also a great addition and requirement for any system. It is required by N.C. Plumbing Code for this to be installed on all new tank heaters. This small pressurized tank reduces thermal expansion and water hammer. Thermal expansion occurs when your water is heated causing the water molecules to separate from one another creating expansion. The increased load on the system is absorbed by the expansion tank reducing pressure on your entire system. Once thermal expansion has decreased the tank will push the water back into the system.
  • Add a water filtration system, you may think your water is perfectly fine for drinking but have you noticed white spots on dishes? Or perhaps black lining around your toilet? Well, these are common signs of “hard water”. Adding a filter will get rid of this “hard water” lessening the amount of sediment build up in your tank and will extend all of your fixtures lifespans. Hard water can affect your heater’s tank in a similar way to the sediment. Eating up the inside of the tank and causing leaks, causing an emergency and needing a plumber. Learn more about Filters.
  • Servicing your unit yourself is the best option for cost-effectiveness. The process is very simple but effective at keeping your heater going. Servicing involves draining your heater completely down. Thus removing sediment from the bottom of the heater. The second step is primarily for gas water heaters. Cleaning the burner assembly involves removing the cover plate located at the bottom, and cleaning the burner, as well as the surrounding area. We also have a plan you could sign up for. Our own Superior Service Agreement. This will have us out twice a year to perform this service on your unit while also inspecting every other fixture in your house.

  • Avatar Joseph Kennelly ★★★★★ in the last week
    Excellent company honest and upfront. They were the only company I could get to come out same day when having issues with pipes backing up. They got me on their schedule quick, came out and replaced all my existing cast iron. Vinny was … More very professional, upfront, and went out of his way to answer questions. I highly recommend them and will be using them for all future plumbing needs.
  • Avatar Mike Crownshaw ★★★★★ a week ago
    Tylor showed up right on time. Found the issue quickly, and fixed the problem easily despite the minor leak being in a hard to reach place. He was also friendly and obviously very competent. I sincerely hope I never have to use them … More again. But if I do have a need for them, they’ll be my first call.
  • Avatar John Bruneau ★★★★★ 3 weeks ago
    We are in the midst of a tile project and needed some toilets pulled and installed. Tylor performed excellently and completed the tasks. He communicated with us and did a difficult installation that had the toilet flange rotated a little. … More We would have him involved in any future plumbing projects. I also commend Superior for working with our scheduling needs. Five stars to the Superior team. Thank you all !!
  • Avatar Christopher Pearson ★★★★★ a month ago
    Superior has provided service and quality up and above and has gone above and beyond what every other plumbing company has provided. I would give 10 stars if I could. Thank you so much for your consistent response and service. We appreciate … More it and our customers do also.

  • Avatar Doralyn Talton ★★★★★ a month ago
    We are very happy with our experience with Superior Plumbing. Zac did an outstanding job of repairing our outdoor spigot. The price was fair, the service quick, and we would use them again for any plumbing needs.
  • Avatar Tim Milstein ★★★★★ a month ago
    Tech Michael is the ultimate professional. I have an older home which has multiple additions so it’s not a cookie cutter arrangement. Michael came in and accessed the issue, provided a solution, initiated and completed the repairs. And … More to complete the process he voluntarily put together and priced out an affordable action plan for preventative measures to ease repair costs for any future drainage issues.
    As always, it’s a pleasure to work with the highly competent employees at Superior Plumbing. They guarantee satisfaction, stand behind their work and show competence and courtesy throughout the organization. I’ve used a lot of plumbers over the years, and if you have a particularly tough job, they’re easily the best.
