A broken water heater can quickly ruin your day, but fortunately, you don’t have to deal with a repair of this magnitude on your own. At Atlantic Green Plumbing, we have been providing the Fredericksburg area with high-quality water heaters and routine maintenance for 20 years.
We sell major brands to serve your water heating needs. We can install a water heater that can provide hot water for every size and type of home. We will replace your tired or leaking tank with a new model, and make all necessary connections and remove your old water heater.
Gas and Electric Water Heaters
If you own a house, you own a water heater. If you’re like most home owners, you probably don’t spend much time thinking about the water heater until, one morning, you go to take a shower and there’s no hot water.
While we always do our best to provide you with the most cost-effective option, sometimes we find that old heaters are simply beyond repair. In the event that this happens, we can complete a fast and reliable replacement so that you can go back to your daily routine with little disruption.
Tankless Water Heaters
Because water is heated as you need it, there is no waiting for the storage tank to fill and reheat. Tankless Heaters take up less space because there is no tank! If you are replacing an existing tank that is stored in a closet, you could feasibly now have a new closet to store things.
Tankless Water Heaters also have a longer lifespan. Traditional tanks can last up to 10 years, while the tankless water heater is designed to last up to 20 years. Maintain efficiency for the life of the unit- unlike traditional units, the tankless water heater will maintain its efficiencies throughout its lifespan.
Water Heater & Maintenance
Despite their almost constant use all day, every day, water heaters generally stay maintenance free for years with the average water heater lasting at least 10 years. Of course, there may be a time when you do wake up and do have a problem with the water heater.
Potential Issues & Problems
- No Hot Water – this could be caused by several different things depending on if you have a gas or electric tank. Both models are designed to include built-in safety devices to ensure maximum safety for you and your home. Should you have a problem it is extremely important to have a skilled technician service your unit, despite the built-in safety features. And please, never tamper with or disable any water heater safety device for any reason.
- Inadequate Hot Water – if your tank is operating properly and you are still running out of hot water, the unit may not be the right size for your home. Our plumbing experts can determine the best model and size for your hot water needs. Water leaking around base of heater – a leaking water heater is usually not a good sign, but does not necessarily mean a new unit is required. If you see any amount of water around your water heater, have it inspected as soon as possible in order to prevent further water damage or expense.
- Other problems– Rust colored water; Rotten egg odor; low rumbling/popping noise; High pitch whining
