Commercial Water Heater Services
When you manage a property or run a business, not having reliable hot water for your customers, employees, or tenants is a liability you can’t afford. Many people try to cut corners and hire a handyman to fix minor water heater issues, but you need a professional for major repairs or system installations to ensure it’s done right and according to current codes and regulations.
Here are the most common situations when DIY repair won’t cut it, and you should call an expert.
- Rising Costs: Your water heater consumes a lot of energy and can account for up to 18% of your energy costs. If you notice your energy statements are more expensive every month and it’s not due to increased usage, it could be that your water heater is failing. It’s best for you and your occupants to replace a water heater before it fails to avoid service interruption.
- Leaks: The metal water tank expands and contracts as it goes through the heating process and this stress over time takes its toll, weakening the metal and causing cracks. The older the water heater gets, the more likely it will develop leaks. Once a water heater starts leaking, the only solution is to replace it.
- Rusty Water: If your building’s occupants complain about rusty or discolored water, it usually means the water tank is rusting from the inside. Once rust sets in, there’s no stopping it, so plan on replacing it as soon as possible.
- Age: The average lifespan of a commercial water heater is approximately ten years, so if your system is reaching the end of its lifespan, it will become more expensive to repair once things start going wrong. If your water heater is over ten years old, it’s usually more economical to invest in a new one instead of continuing to throw money into a system that’s past its prime.
