Beck Cohen provides quality water heater installation in Glenmore, VA. Besides the device simply ceasing to work properly, there are various reasons why homeowners consider replacing their hot water heaters. They may seek water heater replacement because they wish to improve their home’s energy efficiency, or they might want to upgrade to a larger capacity in order to handle all the hot water needs of the family.
Water Heater Installation in Glenmore
Replacing a water heater will typically take two to three hours. We will disconnect the gas or electricity from your existing unit. We’ll then drain and remove your old water heater. There is no additional charge to remove your old equipment and dispose of it properly. If you choose to have your new water heater relocated, we can do that also.
We will position and level your new water heater. Next, we will secure the new connection points. We follow all local codes for water heater installation. Finally, we’ll test the new unit and explain the controls to you and your family. Most new models have vacation settings that save you money while you are away. Newer models can also be more energy efficient in their daily operation.
If you are out visiting Monticello, enjoying Shenandoah National Park or even grocery shopping, you do not want to return home and have to clean up after your water heater has failed. Tank water heaters usually last 10–12 years. Depending on use and ambient water conditions, yours may hold up for a longer or shorter period, but you do not want to leave it to chance or let your water heater live on borrowed time. On the side the tank, your water heater should have a sticker with a manufacturing date. It is sometimes called the build date.
There are warning signs that your water heater may need replacing.
- Lower water pressure
- Corrosion on the bottom or sides
- Water leaking from the tank
- A knocking sound coming from the water heater
- Discolored water pouring from your faucets
- Inconsistent water temperature in the shower
- Rust- or red-colored water
