We are often asked, “how do I know if it’s my water heater that needs the repair and not something else?”  The simplest answer is a water heater displays its malfunction in one of two ways: a leak or improper heating.  The most common cause for malfunction is sediment buildup, especially as water heaters age. The cycle of heating water causes minerals, including limescale, calcium, and magnesium, to accumulate along the sides of the tank and the burner. If not filtered, they will form a sediment barrier settling on the burner and seriously affecting the performance of the water heater.  Water heater inspection or water filtration is the most effective method of prevention. When we inspect for sediment buildup, we also check your water heater’s burner, and you should check yourself periodically. The flame should be blue with yellow tips. If it appears more yellow-orange, this is a sign of incomplete burning which could lead to not only poor water heater performance, but also the production of deadly carbon monoxide! Carbon monoxide is deadly and if it permeates your home or business, you could be at risk.  Call Drain Man immediately if your water heater isn’t burning properly!

The second most popular question we are asked, “When Should I Replace My Water Heater?”  The typical water heater has a life span of 8 to 12 years.  Once they reach that age, water heaters begin to lose efficiency and malfunction prone.  Commonly, homeowners and businesses wait till failure to replace. Drain Man will honestly tell you when it is time for replacement, before complete failure.  Failures are time consuming and frustrating.  Cost and time can be reduced if caught early. As a main energy consumer, water heaters can account for almost 25 percent of your energy use. As they get older and less efficient, this number climbs even higher, and the units get more and more expensive to operate.

We do not recommend waiting until your hot water heater fails or becomes inefficient before considering a replacement.  Your options are plenty and will keep your home running comfortably and save you money.  We are dedicated to providing the best water heater service in Bismarck and that requires honesty and integrity.  You can be sure you are receiving the best information available to help you make the right decision. We have a full line of new replacement water heaters for you to choose from.
