Water Heater Replacement and Repair

One of the most used appliances in your home is your hot water heater. Of course, you probably don’t give it much thought; turn the shower on and you have hot water. But what happens when you don’t? It may be time for a replacement!

There are two different types of standard water heaters, gas and electric. An electric water heater can be used anywhere. A gas water heater is likely in your home if you have any other gas appliances such as a stove. You can replace a gas water heater with an electric heater, however your plumber will need to make sure your circuit box can handle this.

If you have to replace your water heater, you’ll probably want to replace it with the same kind you already have; however, there are upgrades available. Has your family size grown since you bought your home? Consider getting a larger capacity tank to accommodate that. New units are also much more energy efficient, an important consideration.

If your unit has been repaired multiple times already, a replacement is probably in order. There’s no better time to cut costs on your utility bills than during the replacement of a water heater, since you can look for a more energy efficient unit. Your professional plumber can recommend a good replacement, and will be able to repair your current heater if replacement isn’t necessary.

As always, I am very happy to have Pilgrim Plumbing as my plumber!

I wanted to switch to a tankless water heater. Pilgrim Plumbing came by and installed it quickly and I was up and running in no time.

I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your service tech who came out to repair the leak I had in my Jacuzzi plumbing. He was dedicated to doing a good job, and I appreciate that.

Is Filtered Water Really Better Than Bottled Water?

Thursday, August 31, 2017

The first question to ask yourself is whether or not your home  needs better drinking water. A water filtration system is only useful if it takes bad stuff out of your water without putting any bad stuff back in. If it is not doing its job, it could become a bed for bacterial growth or chemical treatments. This could be worse than just drinking the tap water. Don't rush out and buy a water filtration system simply because it is trendy. Research is important.
