Hot Water Systems

Hot Water Systems RenoYour water heater is under nearly constant pressure and stress, which is why it requires more attention and maintenance than nearly any other plumbing fixture. This constant daily pressure makes it very difficult to predict when a small problem is about to become a very serious problem.

Our Reno water heater technicians at Straight Up! Plumbing recommend you have annual tune-ups and inspections of your water heater. Keep your water heater system in the best condition possible with our signature tune-up. Keep your system running efficiently with an inspection to ensure that you find any problems as early as possible.

Reno Water Heater Tune-Ups

  • Tune-ups are one of the best things you can do for your water heater. Our Reno water heater technicians will look at every component of your water heater and make sure that everything is working as well as possible.
  • We’ll check your safety relief valve and emergency shutoff valve to make sure that your water heater is as safe as possible in case a problem does occur.
  • We’ll also test the water temperature to make sure it’s at an optimal level. It should be warm enough to take a hot shower comfortably, but not so warm that it could cause any safety concerns.
  • Then we’ll inspect your burner assembly, check the filters, and test the water pressure and the power supply that’s heating the water.
  • If it needs to be done, we’ll flush out the system to get rid of any debris that may cause a problem with the efficiency of the machine, and could lead to much larger problems in the future.

These steps all help to ensure that your water heater is working as efficiently as possible, and they’ll help to increase the water heater’s lifespan. Without regular water heater tune-ups from a professional Reno water heater repair technician, you’ll see a rapid decline in your water heater’s performance and your energy costs will rapidly increase.

Reno Water Heater Replacement

Water heaters last, on average, around 10 years. Of course, they can last for a longer or shorter amount of time depending on how frequently you have tune-ups, how soon you have problems repaired, and the amount of maintenance the machine receives. Without maintenance and repairs, your water heater may last for as short a time as four or five years. If your water heater is five years old, it’s time to begin considering whether or not you need a replacement.

Our Reno water heater technicians can let you know what kind of condition your water heater is in and how much longer you can expect it to last. When it’s time for a replacement, we can help you through that process as well.
