Often, we are asked, “how do I know if my water heater needs the repair or replacement?”  The easiest answer is a water heater malfunctions in one of two ways: a leak or unsuitable heating.  Sediment buildup is the most common cause for water heater malfunction and is more common as water heaters age. The continuous cycle of heating water results in minerals, including limescale, calcium, and magnesium, to collect along the sides of the tank and the burner. If not properly filtered, they will form a sediment barrier, which will settle on the burner and seriously affect water heater performance.  Inspection and filtration, of the water heater, is the most helpful method of prevention. When our technicians inspect for sediment buildup, they will also check the burner, which you should check periodically. The flame should be blue with a yellow tip. A yellow-orange flame is a sign of incomplete burning which could lead to not only poor water heater performance, but the production of deadly carbon monoxide! Carbon monoxide is very dangerous and if it permeates your home or business, you could be at risk.  Call Drain Man immediately if your water heater is not burning correctly!

Another question we hear a lot, “When Should I Replace My Water Heater?”  The typical lifespan of a water heater is 8 to 12 years.  Once they reach that age, water heaters begin to lose efficiency and malfunction prone.  Frequently, homeowners and businesses wait for failure to replace. Drain Man will only tell you when replacement is warranted.  Water heater failures are time consuming and frustrating.  Catching before failures occur can reduce the cost and time. 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 Dickinson 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.
