Water heaters never fail at convenient times. That makes it all the more important to have them repaired as quickly as possible. After calling for a professional, it helps to ask a few questions before the repair takes place. In many cases, the responses will help the homeowner decide if a Water Heater Repair is the best way to go, or if investing in a new one is a better approach.

What is Wrong with the Heater?

The first thing that the homeowner wants to know is what is actually wrong with the current water heater. During the course of isolating the problem, there is a good chance that the professional from Hanson’s Quality Plumbing Inc will also discover some other issues that are likely to cause a malfunction later on. When this is the case, it is better to know that there is a good chance of another breakdown in the near future. Having that knowledge on hand will make it much easier to decide if it is worth the time and money to fix the current problem, or if it is time to consider a replacement.

Does the Heater Have the Right Capacity?

As long as there is a professional on hand, ask if the current tank is really large enough. The professional will want to know a little about how many people live in the home, if everyone prefers to take showers around the same time of day, and what other needs for hot water occur regularly. Outlining all the ways that the household uses hot water, and how often those events occur, can make it easier to determine if a larger tank would help to ensure that no one runs out of hot water in the middle of a shower or doing a load of laundry. How

Efficient is the Heater?

Before moving forward with the Water Heater Repair, have the professional test the energy efficiency of the device. If the actual efficiency is low, that means the homeowner is wasting a lot of energy and getting very little in return. A better solution would be to discuss a viable replacement with the professional. There is a good chance that he or she can recommend a water heater design and model that will work well for the household, and can be installed with very little difficulty.
