Why Stick with a Tank Water Heater?

July 8th, 2019

sunny-plumbersIf you think that all water heaters are created equal, think again! Sure, you may only be familiar with the old tank style water heater, but there are also tankless models that are well worth homeowners’ consideration. In fact, these tankless models offer incredible energy efficiency! So, just go with a tankless system then, right?

Well, not so fast.

The fact of the matter is that there is no single type of water heater that’s right for everyone. If there were, there’d only be one type of water heater to choose from, right? And while improved energy efficiency may sound like the obvious choice, there are also some areas where tank water heaters have the upper hand. Ultimately, determining which water heater in Corona, CA, is right for you can prove to be quite tricky. Fortunately, that’s where our Sunny Plumbers come in. Read on to learn more about why sticking with a tank water heater is a perfectly reasonable choice.

What Is Standby Energy Loss?

June 10th, 2019

sunny-plumberHot water is one of the last comforts that most people would be willing to give up in their homes. We use it for so many different things throughout the house that hot water is really more of a necessity than a luxury. That level of need doesn’t really take the sting out of a particularly high energy bill related to your water heating, though. Why might you be overpaying for hot water? Well, one potential reason is excessive standby energy loss.

You may not know it by name but, if you use a tank water heater, you have definitely experienced some level of standby energy loss. There is a way to eliminate it entirely, but it’s not the right option for everyone. There are other ways to limit it substantially, too. More on all that below. First, let us just remind you that you cannot go wrong when it comes to water heater services in Corona, CA, when you call a Sunny Plumber to do the job.

When Good Pipes Go Bad

March 18th, 2019

sunny-plumberWhen you think of system failures, you may think of things like motors or electrical controls that run into operational issues. That’s reasonable. Generally speaking, the more complex a system, the more there is to go wrong. That being said, there is no rule stating that simple systems and the components that they comprise cannot run into trouble, too. We certainly don’t mean to suggest that your plumbing system is simple, of course, but we will admit that individual pipes are not terribly complex.

The fact that a pipe is a fairly simple piece of the plumbing puzzle does not mean that you’re not going to run into trouble with your pipes, unfortunately. It is always a good idea to know some common signs of trouble to be aware of that will help you to catch problems with your pipes early on. You should also understand why it is that your pipes in Corona, CA, may run into problems to begin with. Here is some information to keep in mind.
