Water Heaters

Water Heaters

Perhaps one of the most important appliances in your home is the water heater! Often we don’t know how important it is until it breaks down.

Our service area of Arlington has many different types and sizes of water heaters, but rest assured that Dapper Plumbing is equipped to deal with all of them.

If your home has natural gas, chances are that you will have either a standard vented or power vented natural gas heater. Some of our service areas use LP or propane gas for heating hot water. LP water heaters are commonly either standard venting tank style or power vented as well. If you’re in an area that doesn’t have gas, then you will have an electric water heater. These heaters tend to produce less hot water so they will be naturally larger than a gas heater.

Dapper Plumbing Tech Tip

Some early warning signs your water heater is about to give up the ghost”

Hearing your water heater rumble can mean that there is a buildup of sediment on the bottom of the heater. This will cause extra wear on the tank, increased energy usage, and in some cases can be dangerous. If you hear your water heater snapping, crackling, popping, or rumbling, call Dapper Plumbing today.

That tube is likely attached to the water heater relief valve. The relief valve discharges when the pressure or temp gets too high in the water heater tank. Although they do sometimes just fail, a drippy relief valve is often a symptom of underlying issues.

A decrease in the capacity of a tank-style gas or electric water heater can be a sign of failure.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, call 360-588-2227 today or schedule an appointment online today.

Dapper Plumbing Tech Tip

There are many contributing factors to choosing the right size and type of water heater for your family. These factors along with other technical requirements and limiting factors of the existing plumbing system will ultimately determine the right heater for you and your home and the investment. Below are some common considerations.”

Having a properly sized water heater for your home and family means everyone can get a comfortable shower without spending tons of money every year heating water you don’t need to have on hand. The most common sizes of gas and electric tank-style heaters are 40, 50, and 75 gallons. Dapper Plumbing helps homeowners in Darrington, Silvana, and La Conner, choose the right size replacement water heater for their home, their family, and their budget every day.

All water heaters, be them gas, electric or tankless, will someday leak. If your water heater is located in a finished basement, closet, or any other area subject to damage when the hot water tank starts leaking, it makes sense to consider a flood protection package for your new heater. Don’t feel like you have to invest a ton of money to protect your home from the damage a leaking water heater can cause. Dapper has water heater flood protection packages suitable for all budgets.

Maintenance. Yup! It is as simple as that.

Back in the olden days, brand mattered. A lot. And in some ways, it still does, but in a different way. The truth is, everyone who makes water heaters today makes a darn good heater because to compete in today’s competitive market, you’ve got to be good! We have found that the user experience of a particular brand rarely is influenced by the actual water heater but is heavily influenced by who furnishes it and how it’s installed. Want to have the best user experience possible with a new water heater? Trust your water heater replacement to Dapper Plumbing.

Great question! But it’s not a simple answer. In most cases, the only thing different about a water heater with a 12-year warranty and a 6-year warranty is the cost and a sticker. We know, it doesn’t make sense, but it’s the truth. The same tank is used in both heaters. This doesn’t mean that a 12-year heater isn’t for you. If you plan to be in your home for many years, then maybe a water heater with a longer warranty makes the most sense. But if you plan to move in the short term, then maybe a standard warranty of 6 years is the best bet. We are used to helping people just like you determine how to choose the right water heater for you, your home, and your budget.
