Chicago Water Heater Installation & Repair
Although most new water heaters have a shorter life expectancy than they did 30 years ago, they have maintained a relatively low cost. Thirty years ago the average life of a water heater was probably 15 – 20 years. Today a tank will probably spring a leak in 8 – 12 years. At A Custom Heating and Air Conditioning, we have attempted to insure that we have a range of water heaters to fit our customers needs. For example you can make your water heater decision based upon price or quality. Buy a cheap water heater with a limited life expectancy if tank cost is your priority. Buy a top of the line water heater if the water heater is in a location that will cause water damage to floors, carpets, ceilings below etc.
Water Heater Installation
Most water heaters are usually a round tank with a heat source that heats water from the bottom of the tank and also maintains and stores the heated water until it is used. There are many types of water heaters today on the market; however, tankless water heaters are becoming a popular choice for many homeowners due to their many great benefits. Tankless water heaters are energy efficient because they do not heat stored water all day. Only when the you are using hot water is when the water heater turns on. Cut down on your energy cost and ask about our Tankless water heater installation today.
Water Heater Repairs
Our Chicago water heater technicians have extensive experience and training when it comes to the installation and repair of hot water heating systems for your home. There are times when your water heater can be fixed, but if there is a major malfunction with it and the unit has been used for more than ten years, it may be time to consider a water heater replacement. Our Chicago water heater repair technicians are always ready to provide you with quality service that you can depend on to be done efficiently and right the first time.
The truth about warrantees : Water heater manufacturers warrant tank replacement only. If the tank is defective and leaks in 18 months you have to pay a plumber (or do it yourself) to disconnect the heater and haul it down to the wholesaler or retailer and exchange it for a new one (then re-install it). Warrantees typically are also prorated depending upon how long it lasted compared to the warrantee. If you have a 10 year limited warrantee and it fails on the 9th year you get a 10% credit on the tank cost only towards a new heater. Would you really want to buy another heater from that company if you thought they should give you a new one?
