Beach Park Water Heater Service
Water Heater Repair & Installation in the Greater Chicagoland Area
Hot water in the home is so accessible that it’s easy to forget how important it is—until you run out in the middle of a shower. But if it happens regularly, is it really a problem?
Your water heater could be giving off signs that it’s time for repair or replacement:
- Long temperature recovery time
- Heating element failure
- Thermostat issues
- Leaking valves or pipes
- Corroded tank
- Electrical overload
While many of these problems can be repaired, if you’re having consistent issues, it may be time to consider installing a new water heater. Nowadays, there are two main types: tankless heaters and traditional tank heaters.
Tankless Water Heaters
Using less energy than traditional tank water heaters, tankless units are becoming more popular. Other advantages include compact size and continuous, as-needed water heating. However, small units may not be able to keep up with high demand—for example, if someone is taking a shower while the dishwasher is running. Large units that can heat more water at once are more costly than other smaller models.
Tank Water Heaters
Water heaters with tanks keep a supply of water warm constantly so that it’s ready when you need it. Depending on the size of your family, you may need a unit with about a 40- to 60-gallon tank. A good tank water heater can keep up with a family’s hot water demands, but energy is expended keeping the tank’s supply warm at all times.
A Kern Heating & Cooling Co. sales team member can help you decide if a tank or tankless water heater is better for your home and water-heating needs.
