Types of Water Heaters

There are many different types of water heaters available, including tank and tankless models. Tank water heaters are the most common type of water heater and are generally less expensive than tankless models.
Tankless water heaters heat water on demand, which means that the entire tank of water isn't heated at once. Tankless water heaters are more energy efficient than traditional models, but they are more costly to install.

What to Look for When Buying a New Water Heater

Depending on the model, water heaters generally last from 12 to 15 years with regular maintenance and good water quality. A water heater that is not regularly maintained in a home with hard water won’t last as long. Whenever the time comes for a new unit, we can help you select the best model for your home and install it for you.

Important aspects to consider in the selection process include:

  • Tank size – Standard water tanks range from 30 to 80 gallons. You need a tank that is large enough to supply enough hot water for your needs.
  • Energy source – Water heaters can be powered by electricity, natural gas, propane, or solar power. Consider the fuel source and availability when buying a new water heater.
  • Energy efficiency – The energy efficiency rating is important in the selection process for many homeowners. A more energy-efficient water heater can save money on your utility costs.
  • Price – It is important to consider both the installation price and the operating cost to understand the total cost of a water heater. For example, a more energy-efficient water heater that costs a little more may save a lot on your utility bills.

At Plumbing Solutions of Idaho, we work with all major brands of water heaters in Idaho. We even offer tankless water heater options! Our fully-trained staff of plumbers has the knowledge and expertise needed to perform the installation to your complete satisfaction. When you choose our local company, you can expect great service and great value.

Preventative Water Heater Maintenance

The water in the Boise area tends to be hard and contains an abundance of minerals. If a water heater is not properly serviced, these minerals will build up inside the water heater and shorten its lifespan. This includes flushing the tank to remove any sediment and mineral buildup. Regular preventative maintenance allows problems to be detected early when they are easier to fix and maximizes the life of your water heater.

Tips to Maintain Your Water Heater

A few things that you will want to check regularly are the pressure release valve, the amount of sediment in the tank, and the anode rod. Before beginning your maintenance if you have a gas heater, turn off the gas valve that feeds the burner, and if you use an electric heater look for the breaker to turn off the electricity.

  1. The first step is to close the valves that fill the tank.
  2. You will begin by testing the pressure release valve. The release valve is designed to fail before the tank does as not to damage the tank. Pull the lever on the valve to release water and vapor; then the valve needs to be replaced.
  3. There are dirt and deposits in the tank from the water that settles on the bottom and these cause rust, corrosion, and reduce energy efficiency and clog the water line. To clean these out flush your water heater every six months. To drain, attach a water hose to the water heater drain (near the base) and drain into a bucket. Once the water runs clear, then the tank is free of sediment.
  4. The next step is to make sure your anode rod is in good shape. The anode rod collects particles that cause corrosion inside the tank. The anode rod is made of aluminum or magnesium. If it is past its prime, it will no longer attract particles and needs to be replaced. The rod is factory installed, so it will need to be replaced by a plumber.
  5. The last step is to reopen the valves and refill the tank before turning on your heating element. Otherwise, you will burn out the heating element.

Maintaining a water heater is an excellent way to extend the life of your water heater and only needs to be done every six months to a year.
