Water Heater Installation, Maintenance, and Repair in Seattle

At Puget Sound Plumbing and Heating, we want to save you money by offering the most efficient water heaters on the market. When it comes to water heater installation for your Seattle, WA home or business, we typically recommend gas water heaters from Bradford White, electric water heaters from Ruud, and tankless water heaters from Eternal Hybrid. Installing a tankless water heater is not only good for the environment, but it’s also good for your wallet because it only heats water when you need it. Though we would be happy to install whichever water heater you choose, we promote these specific manufacturers because of their reputations for producing high-efficiency water heaters that are backed by dependability and some of the best warranties in the industry.

Lower Your Utility Bills with Proper Water Heater Maintenance

We want to offer our customers the most sound advice when it comes to buying and maintaining your water heater, especially since heating water accounts for about 18% of your home’s energy use. Whether you go with gas, electric, or tankless, proper water heater maintenance is a surefire way to better water quality, maximum performance, and a longer lifespan, all while saving you money. Here are some water heater maintenance tips to help lower your utility bills:

  • Adjust the thermostat – There aren’t many circumstances where you will need to be using your water heater at full heat, so try turning your model’s thermostat down a few degrees to help reduce your energy consumption.
  • Drain/flush tank – Over time, your water heater will build up with sediment, forcing your system to work harder than it needs to. To fix this problem, you should get your water heater flushed and drained yearly to ensure maximum efficiency.
  • Insulate heater – Proper insulation will ensure that your water heater does not lose heat, which will allow your water heater not to overwork itself. Taking some pressure off your device will pay for itself, trust us.
  • Fix leaks – If there’s water build-up around the bottom of your tank, you’ll want to get in contact with one of our licensed professionals as soon as possible. Plumbing leaks are not only dangerous but also a vast energy drainer that can end up costing you a fortune if left unattended.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Maintenance or Repair

Like any other high-demand machine, water heaters slowly depreciate over time. That’s why it’s essential to recognize the signs associated with a water heater that may need some extra attention. Here’s what to look out for:

  • Leaking tank
  • Rusty/foul smelling water
  • Abnormal noises
  • Always running out of hot water
  • Low water pressure
  • Old age

Water heaters that are correctly maintenanced typically last for around 10-15 years. If you are within this mark and your water heater is exhibiting problems, there is a good chance you will end up having to replace your old model rather than getting it maintenanced or repaired. In reality, no matter how well you care for your old water heater, upgrading to a newer model is your best bet when it comes to safety and efficiency. At Puget Sound Plumbing and Heating, we understand you can’t always plan for the unexpected. That’s why we offer unbeatable warranties and financing options for all your water heater installation needs in Seattle, WA and surrounding areas in the Puget Sound Region.

Replacing Your Water Heater’s Temperature & Pressure Valves

Your water heater’s temperature and pressure-relief valve should be tested at least once a year and replaced every three years to ensure your water heater is running safely and effectively. This valve is put into place to prevent your hot water heater from building up too much pressure and potentially exploding. If you find that your valve is leaking, water heater maintenance will probably be necessary. Water discharge around your temperature and pressure valve is a sign that your valve is fulfilling its role as a water heater safety device, letting you know that something has caused your water heater to reach a temperature that exceeds the safe limit. Contact our professional plumbers to address this issue and find out if your temperature and pressure valve needs replacing.
