Why Water Heaters are a Core Part of our Business
At Masters, water heater sales and service are key elements in our business plan. Why? Think about how much hot water plays into your day. You use it for cooking, cleaning, bathing and laundry. It’s so ingrained into people’s lives they don’t even notice it – until it’s gone.
It’s also easy to forget where the hot water comes from and how that piece of hardware works. Most homes have a storage tank that holds hot water. You control the temperature, but beyond that, it’s a home appliance that you probably don’t think much about until it stops working.
Most water heaters don’t require regular maintenance to function like changing the filter on your air conditioner. When it does breakdown, there are variables involved in choosing a new one, so it’s good to have an expert like Masters at your disposal to provide advice and competitive pricing.
What to Look for in a Water Heater?
The water heater industry is intricate. The type appliance you choose will depend on many factors. Do you want electric or gas, for example? Maybe your last one was electric but the gas product is more cost-efficient, but is your house set up for gas? What about fuel efficiency? What does that energy rating mean?
Our expert technicians have the answers to any question that might come as you shop for a replacement water heater. We’ll do an evaluation of your home, the size, the number of people living there and what fuel is available to you. We’ll present a list of options in varying and competitive price ranges and go over the pros and cons of each. We will help you consider all the factors that go into providing affordable hot water to your home without the utility bills going through the roof.
When you do finally make a choice, we’ll be there to install your new unit and service it to enhance the efficiency and extend the shelf life.
What Type of Maintenance Does a Water Heater Need?
With a new water heater installed, you are enjoying the benefits of hot water once again and probably for less money than you paid before – new units generally operate more efficiently than older models. It’s an upgrade for your home that pays for itself in savings and comfort over time, but now what?
There are a few things to consider when planning a maintenance schedule for your new hot water heater, especially if you want to keep it working at peak performance. We will walk you through the basics of home maintenance after installation. You’ll know how to set the temperature of your hot water, so it’s hot enough but not too hot. You’ll know how to check for problems with the unit, as well. Part of this plan will be a regular flush and full tune up program.
Regular maintenance by Masters will start with draining the tank to flush your system. Over time, sediment from the water accumulates in the tank’s heating system. This buildup reduces your heater efficiency and eventually leads to leaks. We flush the storage tank to remove any accumulated sediment.
At the same time, we give your unit a full tune up that includes checking all the connections to make sure they are secure. We’ll evaluate and test the heating element to ensure it works correctly and at peak efficiency. We examine all safety devices to guarantee they are functional. If you have a gas system, we’ll check the burner and pilot light along with the incoming gas pressure.
It’s easy to take your hot water system for granted. We understand that, which is why we stand by 24/7 to make sure you have it when you want it. If you do find yourself in the shower with nothing but cold water coming out, give us a call for help.
