Frequently Asked Questions About Water Heaters

Why does my water heater need regular maintenance?

All home comfort systems require regular attention to ensure they run effectively and efficiently year-round, and water heaters are no different. Regular water heater maintenance will guarantee that your water heater will continue to provide consistent hot water when you need it, regardless of whether you have a traditional tank-style water heater or a tankless one. Maintenance will also alert you to any issues before they get worse and more expensive.

Why is it taking so long for my water to get hot?

Aside from the possibility that you need water heater repairs, there are several possible reasons your water is taking longer than usual to get hot. From the length of your pipes to flow restrictors within your fixtures or sediment buildup in your tank, you may need the help of your local plumbing professionals to determine what’s going on. Even freezing outdoor temperatures could be to blame. Our experts can diagnose your problem and provide fast, effective, and affordable solutions — guaranteed.

How long does a water heater last?

Storage or tank water heaters last approximately 10 to 15 years, while more modern and energy-efficient tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years. Regardless of the system you use, regular water heater maintenance is critical to prolonging its service life.

Why is my water heater leaking?

If your Washington, DC-area home has a leaky water heater, a variety of factors could be to blame. Some of the most common reasons for a leaking water heater are:

  • Cracked storage tank
  • Too much pressure
  • Improper draining
  • Loose fixtures
  • Service life reached or exceeded

Whatever the problem, Len The Plumber Heating & Air will quickly diagnose it and provide an effective solution.

How are storage and tankless water heaters different?

Storage water heaters operate by continuously heating and storing water to be used throughout your home for bathing, doing dishes, and washing laundry. Tank-style water heaters tend to lack energy efficiency because they need to keep refilling and heating water in large batches.

Tankless water heaters are considered much more energy-efficient as they heat your water on demand and will provide the exact amount of hot water you need when you need it. While tankless systems tend to cost more initially, they have a longer projected service life, will inevitably save you money on energy bills, and require little maintenance.
