Whether you want to have your old water heater repaired or a new tankless water heater installed, our licensed Newport Beach plumbers are ready for the task.
Signs Your Water Heater Needs Inspection
Don’t wait until your water heater completely stops working to call for service. If you notice any of the following signs, you should call Swell Plumbing to schedule for service.
• Not as much hot water
• Discolored water
• Unpleasant smell in water
• Rumbling or whining noises from water heater
• Leaks around the water heater
• Rust on the water heater
If you aren’t able to catch these signs of a water heater problem before your water heater completely fails on you, don’t worry. We offer prompt water heater services – usually the same or next day. For water heater emergencies, our licensed plumbers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Types of Water Heaters
Swell Plumbing can help with gas and electric water heater installation, conventional tank water heater installation, tankless water heater installation, hybrid water heater installation, and solar water heater installation. In most cases, we recommend that homeowners upgrade to a tankless water heater.
Conventional water heaters use gas or electricity to heat water, which is then stored in a large reservoir of around 20 to 80 gallons. These water heaters are not very efficient because the water must be heated even when it is not in use. Thus, water heaters can account for a huge portion of your utility bills.
By contrast, newer tankless water heaters do not have a reservoir tank. They produce hot water when you need it by heating water as it flows through the appliance. If you have high water demands, such as several family members showering at the same time, it may be necessary to install more than one tankless water heater. In most cases though, a tankless water heater is capable of producing enough hot water to meet all your demands. Since the hot water is produced as you need it, you never run out of hot water.
Tankless water heaters use up to 40% less energy than conventional tank water heaters. This adds up to savings over the long run. However, tankless water heaters do require more of an initial investment. Our water heater experts at Swell Plumbing can help you determine which water heater is best for your needs and budget.
Warehouse on Wheels
We strive to make water heater replacement as simple as possible for our customers. One way we do this is by arriving in trucks which are stocked with numerous types and models of water heaters. Our plumbers can help you determine which water heater is best for your needs and then install it right then. If you’d rather purchase your own water heater, this is of course fine. We can still help by offering secure water heater installation from licensed technicians.
Water Heater Bracing
One thing that Californians need to worry about is damages from earthquakes. In order to keep homes safe, California law requires that almost all water heaters be braced, anchored, or strapped in a way that prevents them from falling in the event of an earthquake. The importance of proper water heater bracing shouldn’t be underestimated. If a water heater tips over during an earthquake, it could cause a gas or water leak in your home.
Swell Plumbing not only knows how to install all the plumbing and wiring components of your water heater, but we brace it too! You can rest assured that your water heater will meet California code so you and your family stay safe.
