Hot water is important to our quality of life. Going without it can be miserable. Just reflect on taking an icy cold shower and you’ll know how awful it can be. Maybe even more important is the damage they can cause to your home before you know what is going on. Like many things in our lives, we typically take water heaters for granted until we don’t have any hot water, or we find water leaking all over the place!

Washing dishes, doing the laundry, taking showers or baths all depend on hot water. Lorenz Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning offers expert installation, repair and maintenance to ensure a steady supply of hot water for your home or business.

Hot Water Heater Maintenance and Repair

One step towards maintaining your water heater and avoiding potential issues is to routinely do a visual inspection of your water heater. Many issues with water heaters have warning signs that are visible before they get out of control. If you are not comfortable doing this yourself then give us a call and we will come and check it out for you and show you what to look for. This ensures that potential issues are caught early, and your unit gives you the most efficient performance possible. Additionally, if you ever notice that your hot water isn't working correctly, it's wise to call a professional to determine whether your water heater needs repair or replacement.

Contact Lorenz right away if you notice any of the following:

  • No hot water
  • Only lukewarm water
  • Foul-smelling water, such as the smell of rotten eggs
  • Rust-colored water
  • Unusual noises from your water heater
  • Water leaking from your water heater

A malfunctioning water heater is more than an inconvenience. Left unattended, it can lead to costly problems from damaging leaks to a total breakdown with no hot water.

Replacing Your Water Heater

Most water heaters remain in good working order for around 10 to 15 years. If your water heater isn't working as well as it used to, is old, or you find yourself paying for frequent repairs, it might be time to replace it. Not sure where to start? We’ll guide you to offer options and information on traditional gas water heaters versus tankless ones. In short, a traditional tank water heater stores and heats water continuously. A tankless heater works on demand. It gives you hot water when you turn on the tap but stops working when you don’t need it.d.
