Should You Choose Gas or Electric?
When it comes time to have a new hot water tank installed, you’ll have the choice of utilizing a system powered by natural gas—or propane—or electricity. If you don’t have access to natural gas or propane on your Corona, CA property, then you’ll need to choose an electric tank water heater. The benefit of this system is that installation is typically more affordable than that of a gas tank water heater. Additionally, electric appliances are generally a bit safer than their gas–powered counterparts.
That is not to say that a gas tank water heater is not an excellent choice. If you have access to gas, this system is highly efficient. While its installation is a bit pricier than that of an electric tank water heater, the savings you’ll recover month–to–month could make the cost well worth it. To learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of each system, simply give us a call today.
Do You Need Hot Water Tank Repairs?
Just like any other important appliance in your home, your tank water heater is susceptible to repair needs over time. Also, since they are usually placed in areas that don’t get a lot of visibility, it can be hard to detect when a repair is in need or a problem has begun to develop. It’s imperative that you be aware of some of the indications that something may be amiss—and give us a call if you discover one of the following signs.
- Discoloration: Any discoloration in your water can be ominous. It’s most often the sign of rust in your plumbing system. However if you only notice it when you have the faucet turned to "hot," then there is rust inside your tank water heater. Corrosion in the tank is never a good sign, and you’ll need to contact a professional ASAP so that we can assess whether a repair will be sufficient or a system replacement will be a better idea.
- Rotten Egg Smell: This is a very distinct smell, and can often be alarming. Sometimes what happens is that hydrogen sulfide gas develops in the tank water heater, and that’s what creates this odor. To rid your water heater of this gas and of the offending smell, it requires a trained professional to come in and flush the water heater.
- No Hot Water: There are a number of possible reasons for this—you may have a broken dip tub or a malfunctioning heating element within the tank. Our experts can determine what the problem is and repair it promptly and efficiently to get your Corona, CA home back in full functioning order.
