Water Heater Install & Repair

Our water heater and tankless heater installation, repair, and maintenance services involve ensuring the proper functioning, safety, and longevity of water heating systems in residential and commercial buildings. Water heaters are essential for providing hot water for bathing, cleaning, cooking, and other daily activities. Hiring Charter Oak Pluming will ensure efficient and safe operation of your water heater and tankless heater.

Water Heater Installation:

  • Assessment: We assess the water heating needs of the building, taking into account factors such as the number of occupants, hot water demand, and available energy sources (electricity, gas, solar, etc.).
  • Type and Size Selection: Based on the assessment, we recommend the appropriate type of water heater (tankless, storage tank, heat pump, solar, etc.) and determine the size that meets the hot water requirements.
  • Location Determination: The location for installing the water heater is chosen, considering factors such as accessibility, ventilation, and safety regulations.
  • Installation: The chosen water heater is installed according to manufacturer specifications and local building codes. This includes connecting water supply lines, gas lines (if applicable), exhaust systems, and electrical connections.
  • Ventilation: Proper ventilation is ensured for gas and combustion-based water heaters to prevent the buildup of harmful gases.
  • Pressure Relief Valve Installation: A pressure relief valve is installed to ensure the safe release of excess pressure within the water heater tank.

Water Heater Repair:

  • Diagnosis: We diagnose water heater issues, such as insufficient hot water, leaks, strange noises, or temperature fluctuations.
  • Component Repair or Replacement: Faulty components such as heating elements, thermostats, pressure relief valves, or anode rods are repaired or replaced to restore proper functionality.
  • Tank Flushing (For Tank-Type Heaters): Sediment buildup in tank-type water heaters can affect efficiency. Professionals flush the tank to remove sediment and improve performance.
  • Gas Valve and Ignition System Repair (For Gas Heaters): Gas water heaters may require repairs to the gas valve, pilot light, or ignition system to ensure safe and efficient operation.
  • Anode Rod Replacement: Anode rods are sacrificial components that prevent corrosion within the water heater tank. They may need replacement periodically to extend the tank’s lifespan.

Water Heater Maintenance:

  • Regular Inspection: Scheduled maintenance involves inspecting the water heater for signs of wear, leaks, or corrosion.
  • Temperature and Pressure Check: We ensure that temperature and pressure settings are within safe ranges.
  • Anode Rod Inspection: Anode rods are checked for corrosion and replaced if necessary.
  • Flushing (Tank-Type Heaters): Regular flushing of tank-type water heaters helps prevent sediment buildup, which can reduce efficiency.
  • Ventilation Check (For Gas Heaters): For gas water heaters, ventilation systems are inspected to ensure proper gas combustion and safe venting of combustion gases.
  • Testing Safety Features: Safety features such as pressure relief valves are tested to ensure they function properly.

Hiring our qualified professionals for water heater installation, repair, and maintenance is essential to ensure safety, efficiency, and compliance with regulations. Regular maintenance by Charter Oak Plumbing can prolong the life of your water heater and help you avoid costly repairs or replacements.
