The typical lifespan for a water heater is between 10-15 years, although over time water heaters become less efficient. If your water heater is less than 10 years old and is not leaking, it can often be repaired. A plumber from Williams Plumbing will always discuss options, so you can have the right amount of reliable hot water for your home.
The pilot light is a small flame that relights the water heaters main burner. Occasionally that flame goes out and must be relit. The good news is, most new water heaters have a box with a button on it that you can press to relight the pilot light. If you need help resetting your water heaters pilot light, a trusted professional from Williams Plumbing is available to help 24/7.
The thermocouple is a safety device that prevents the gas from staying on when the pilot light goes out. While relighting the pilot light is something that you can do, trouble shooting a thermocouple is best left to a trusted professional from Williams Plumbing.
Most electric water heaters have two elements that work in tandem to heat and maintain hot water in the tank. The bottom element heats incoming cold water, and the top element maintains the store of hot water. When one of the elements fails, it can cause a loss in temperature in the tank. Because an electric water heater must be drained to replace the element, it is best left to a trusted professional from Williams Plumbing.
The thermostat regulates the temperature of the heating elements. The thermostat is also the bridge between the electrical system and the plumbing system. When a thermostat fails, the heating elements fail to get electricity.
