Water Heater Repair and Installation in Indianapolis

In average households, each person uses roughly 80-100 gallons of water a day. That’s a lot of water. In fact, it’s an amount that can send a flood of dollars out of your wallet if you’re relying on an outdated or broken water heater.

 A water heater is an expensive plumbing appliance, and we tend to push off replacing it until it breaks beyond repair. Water heater repair and water heater installation are often put off as long as possible. It is also a piece of plumbing equipment that we forget about until we wake up to a cold shower. We may hear the water heater making noise, trying to tell us there is a problem, but we ignore it which may lead to a more extensive repair that if we would have nipped it in the bud. It’s important to get out in front of any problems as fast as possible. The quicker you react to an issue, the better chance you’ll have to save time and money on water heater services.

Many water heaters can be repaired instead of replaced if you catch it in time!

If you notice rusty water, rumbling or banging sounds coming from your water heater’s tank, an increased amount of time required to heat your water, or puddles of water under your water heater, it’s time to call the professionals about repair or replacement options.Williams Comfort Air provides repair and replacement services for water heaters in Indianapolis, Indiana, as well as cities and towns in the surrounding metro.

Consider These Options When Choosing the Right Water Heater for Your Home

Heating your water is the 3rd largest energy-using process in the home. Water heating accounts for about 14% of your utility bill. The cost of heating your water is a large investment, so here are some things that you need to know to make an informed decision when choosing a water heater.

  1. Capacity. Capacity is crucial in choosing the appropriate water heater for your home. The first-hour rating (FHR) is the number of gallons of hot water that the water heater can supply in an hour when the tank is full. This is the most important factor in correctly sizing your water heater. If you choose a water heater with a tank that is too small, you won’t have enough hot water to meet your needs. If it is over-sized, it will heat more water than you use which increases your energy usage and utility bills. Call Williams Comfort Air to find out what size fits your needs and to install the correct water heater in your home.
  2. Energy Efficiency. The energy efficiency of a storage water heater is indicated by its Energy Factor (EF). The higher the EF rating, the more efficient the water heater is. However,  a water heater with a higher EF value, doesn’t always mean it will have lower operating costs. You must also consider the cost of the type of fuel your water heater will run on. Choosing a tank with at least 1.5 inches of foam insulation and an Energy Star rating is advisable.
  3. Cost. While the cost of the water heater itself is important, don’t ignore the operating cost. You may save money on the equipment but pay more to the utility company.

Indianapolis Water Heater Maintenance

Water heaters need to be flushed once a year. It’s not uncommon to forget about this important yearly maintenance, but flushing your water heater can help it last longer and could  also save you money on energy costs by restoring the efficiency of the water heater. A 15-year old water heater that has never been flushed, could have up to eight inches of sediment in the bottom of the tank. The sediment takes up space that could be filled with hot water for you to be using.  That sediment contains calcium, scale, rust, dirt, iron, and sulfuric‐smelling bacteria, and your tap water is heating up with all that in it. 

Flushing a water heater is a simple process; one of our plumbers will shut off power to the water heater—if it is an electric heater—and turn off the heater’s water supply. After draining and rinsing all of the water and sediment from the water heater tank, the water supply is turned back on and the tank is refilled. This process helps to prevent clogged water lines and buildup of mineral deposits in your water heater.

Although a water heater flush can be a do‐it‐yourself project, you’ll be dealing with scalding hot water, potentially under high pressure, and may run the risk of damaging your tank’s heating element if the flush is not performed correctly. Call Williams Comfort Air to arrange for one of our professional plumbers to evaluate your water heater to determine if flushing the system is right for you. There are times that a flush could potentially cause more harm than good. If our licensed plumber determines a flush is what is needed, he will quickly and efficiently do the work for you.
