Tank Water Heaters in Tacoma, WA

When most people think of tank water heaters, they know exactly what to think of: the large, metal cylinder that holds the hot water and is connected to your home’s plumbing. That’s because tank water heaters are the most popular type of water heater used in the country. If you don’t own a tank water heater right now, you most likely owned one in the past.

While these water heaters are reliable and cost-effective, there comes a time when they’ll need to be repaired or replaced. Or, you might be moving into a new home and need a brand-new installation.

Which Is Better: Electric or Natural Gas Water Heaters?

One of the choices you’ll face in installing a new water heater is the energy source. This decision will have long-term affects on your heater’s performance and costs, so it’s important to have a professional help make the decision with you.

Two common fuel sources are electricity and natural gas. While natural gas tank water heaters are ideal thanks to the low cost of gas, not all homes are equipped to receive connections from gas lines. Your next best option would be to install an electric tank water, instead, as they can be easily integrated into your electrical system.

To find out which option will be best for you, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team of professionals. We can help assess your comfort needs and the overall costs associated with both fuel sources to help you make the right decision.

Signs It’s Time for Tank Water Heater Repairs

If you notice signs problems with your water heater, you’ll want to call a technician over right away. Letting a water heater problem persist can lead to leaks, water damage, and increased heating and water bills. Some of the signs to keep an eye out for include:

  • Leaks: If you notice water pooling beneath your tank, don’t waste any time. If the leak is coming from the tank, it needs replacement. Phone up our technicians and they can tell you how to proceed.
  • Rumbling and strange noises: We prefer that your water heater is so silent that you almost take it for granted. If your water heater is making weird noises or is rumbling, it’s most likely not the sign of a disaster, but it most likely needs some service.
  • Low Performance: If the water heater’s ability to heat has declined, don’t assume it will just pass. A drop in performance most likely means there’s a problem inside the tank.

In addition to repairs and installation, we also offer regular maintenance to keep your water heater in check. We’ll inspect the tank, the anode rod, flush the tank, and perform all the tasks needed to keep your water heater running smoothly through the whole year. We’ll also be able to find small indications of bigger problems, thus helping you save money from a future repair or costly replacement. Contact Miller Comfort Systems today if you need help from a team of dependable technicians in Tacoma, WA.
