We Can Help Maximize Your Water Heater Efficiency!

When it comes to your water heater, there are situations when it may not be as efficient as it used to be. When this happens, we can help. Some of the ways we can do this include:

Tankless Water Heaters
Most water heaters come with tank, but an on demand or tankless water heater is much more efficient in some cases. Instead of having to keep the entire tank of hot water in place, throughout the day, regardless of if you need it or not, a tankless unit will only heat the water as it is needed.
What this means is that for most of the day, the water heater will be using very little or no energy at all. Unfortunately, there are some downsides to the installation of a tankless unit, too. One of the biggest downsides is that the heater will not be able to provide enough hot water for multiple people to be using it at the same time.

Installation of a Timer
If you are not ready to replace your tank altogether, you could consider the installation of a timer. This will help you conserve more energy. A timer is a very small device that you set that will only send power to your unit during certain times of the day. If you want to make sure you are not wasting energy by keeping multiple gallons of hot water warm in the middle of the night, you can have a timer installed to prevent this.

Is It Time for a Replacement?

While there are many water heater issues that can be repaired, there are also times when your unit will need to be replaced. If you have a tank that is more than 10 years old, or if there is a leak in the actual tank, the best solution will be to install a new one. If there is any water beneath the unit, then it is a tell-tale sign that it needs to be replaced. 

Installation of a new water heater offers an array of benefits. Some of these benefits include:

  • More hot water
  • Improved water heating efficiency
  • Ability to save water, money, and energy

These make a compelling case to go head and invest in a new unit. 

Water Heater Maintenance: It is a Smart Investment!

There is no question your water heater is a crucial part of your home. As a result, ensuring it is properly maintained is essential. Our team can provide regular and ongoing maintenance for your unit and ensure it is running efficiently throughout the year. Some of the top maintenance tasks we offer include:

Check the Unit’s Temperature 
St. Charles Water Heaters can check the thermostat during service, but recommend you do this occasionally, too. There are some manufacturers that set the temperature to the 140 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the default setting. This is much hotter than most households really need. If the temperatures of the unit are too high, it can cause scalding along with increased mineral buildup and pipe corrosion. We recommend a setting of no more than 120 F. This prevents damage to your tank and will help you save a lot on water heating costs. 

Regularly Drain Your Tank
When our team provides service for your water heater, we can flush out approximately 25% of the water in the tank. You can also do this on your own. However, if you aren’t sure how or don’t know the steps to take, we will be happy to handle the process for you. 

Testing the Pressure Relief Valve 
It is essential to make sure the pressure relief valve is working properly. It should release a single quick burst of the hot water into the drainpipe once you raise and then lower the test lever. While our team can handle this when we provide service, it is a good idea for you to test it on your own too. 
Remember, water heaters are complex systems. As a result, they require a lot of attention, time and maintenance. If you do not have the ability or time to do this on your own, we will handle it for you.

If you are not sure what is wrong with your unit, you can call our professional team to inspect the system and find the underlying issue. This is the best way to know not only what is wrong with the system, but also how much it is going to cost to fix the issue.
