Hot water heaters come in many different shapes and sizes, including conventional gas or electric water heaters, tankless, hybrid, and solar water heaters. There’s nothing worse than to wake up on a cold morning and discover that your water heater has died. A Las Vegas NV plumbing services company may have a solution for your water heater trouble.
Commonplace water heater problems may include water that’s too hot or too cold, weird noises coming out of the tank, smelly or discolored water, too little hot water, and a leaking tank. For a gas water heater, a Las Vegas NV plumbing services company can do the following things: make sure that the gas is turned on, turn the pilot light on if it’s gone out, make sure the thermostat is set correctly, and reignite the burner. They can also deal with heaters that have a strong gas smell that doesn’t dissipate.
A Las Vegas plumber can check the circuit breaker on an electric water heater, reset a high-temperature cutoff, make sure there’s no water inside the thermostat compartment that could cause your heater to malfunction, and check out your heating elements to see if they need to be replaced.
A Las Vegas NV plumbing services company can repair your tankless hot water system. They can drain the heater, remove old wires and element, seat a new O-ring, replace the wires, and then turn on the water supply again. They are also familiar with all the ins and out of your hybrid water heater.
A professional, licensed plumber knows just what to do if your solar water heater isn’t functioning correctly. They can check for shading from new vegetation growth that wasn’t there when you first installed the water heater. They may check for collector soiling, cracks in the collector glazing, and will check the seals to make sure they are still in good condition. A plumber can check the wiring connections and ductwork to see if there’s any fluid leaking at the pipe connections or seals. He may check for degradation or damage of insulation.
