A hot water heater is one of those home appliances we can?t live without. We depend on hot water for our daily chores like showers, laundry, dishes and cleaning. These days, the average water heater lasts 8-12 years. This means that the typical homeowner will replace their water heater 2-3 times over their lifetime. However, recent advances in water heater technology have increased the life span of this appliance we rely on every day.
When your water heater fails to function adequately, it is normally due to one of three causes:
- The thermostat that controls the water heater needs to be replaced
- The water supply to the water heater is blocked
- Your heater?s water storage tank has malfunctioned
At A&R Climate Control and Venting, we install and repair water heaters from all manufacturers. Most water heaters are usually a round tank with a heat source that heats water from the bottom of the tank and also maintains and stores the heated water until it is used. A single family home typically requires a water heater with a 40 to 50 gallon glass-lined steel tank. The fuel types used to power the heat source can be either gas (natural or propane) or electricity.
We sell, furnish and install industry leading hot water tanks with a number of warranty options. We also provide routine preventative maintenance and service to extend the life of your water heater.
