What Do Water Heaters Do?

It may sound obvious, but the purpose of a hot water heater is to heat the water in your home. This includes supplying hot water to your shower, your sinks, your dishwasher, your laundry machines, and much more. Without a hot water heater, you would simply be stuck with cold water. The exact way in which your water heater functions depends on what type of water heater you have. For example, more traditional water heaters receive cold or cool water from outside your home via water lines, and then utilize a burner or other heating mechanism to heat the water to the desired temperature. The hot water will then naturally rise to the top of the tank and travel through the pipes to reach your tap.

What to Do When Your Hot Water Heater Goes Out

Unsure whether your water heater is functioning properly? Here are 5 signs that your water heater may need to be repaired.

So, who do you call when your hot water is not working? Do plumbers install hot water heaters, or is it someone else? The answer is “yes.” A plumber is usually the best person to call when your water heater decides to stop working because they are familiar with the inner workings of your pipes and water lines and can help troubleshoot what the issue may be. They can also find a solution for fixing your water heater.

If your water heater stops working, you can call Paws Plumbing at (858) 252-1670 to request our San Diego water heater services. We’re ready to help!

How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

On average, a hot water heater will last for 8 to 12 years, depending on the type of water heater you have. For example, a traditional water heater may only last 8 to 12 years, but a heat pump water heater may last anywhere from 10 to 15 years, and a tankless water heater can last from 15 to 20 years!

Another factor that plays into your water heater’s life expectancy is how well you maintain it. It’s important to schedule regular maintenance and repairs if any issues arise. This can help you avoid having to replace your water heater more often than expected.

What Type of Water Heater Is Best?

Choosing the right water heater depends on your household usage and what your goals are. Some types of water heaters offer more energy efficiency, which means you can save money on your energy bills each month. Other models last longer and require less consistent maintenance. You may also take into consideration the size and cost of each model when deciding which water heater is best for you.
