Installation and Repair Services for Standard Water Heaters in North Denver
Using gas or electric as the power source, standard water heaters are the workhorses most common in homes today. This appliance heats water to a certain temperature and stores it in a 30-50 gallon tank so that it’s ready for showers, laundry, dishes and more.
Making the magic happen requires many components that may need water heater repair services from time to time. If you’re having issues with a lack of hot water, odors, hazy water or a loud water heater, we can diagnose and repair any make or model. An Aspen Creek technician will inspect:
- Water tank
- Hot and cold supply lines
- Dip tube and discharge pipe
- Gas burner control and assembly
- Exhaust flue and all venting
- Pressure relief valve
- Drain valve
Once our technician determines the problem, we’ll put together an accurate repair estimate, walk you through the plan, and answer any questions you have. Repairs will only be made with your approval.
If your water heater cannot be repaired, we can advise you on the installation of a new unit. We realize that it may be an unexpected expense, so we’ll help you choose a new water heater that best matches your budget now and provides maximum energy efficiency to curb utility bills.
Pros and Cons of Installing a Conventional Water Heater
If repairs cannot be done or it’s simply time to replace your current water heater, you’ll have a pretty big decision to make. Here’s what you need to know.
Top 5 Advantages of a Tanked Water Heater
- New unit costs less than a tankless unit
- Easier to install, relatively inexpensive to replace
- Tank system is easier to maintain and repair
- No fans or pumps that can burn out over time
- Proven to be reliable in homes nationwide
- Hot water runs out, don’t be the last to shower
- Can’t be installed outside, takes up a lot of space
- Needs to be replaced every 10 to 15 years max
- Lower overall efficiency and higher utility bill
Installation and Repair Services for Tankless Water Heaters in North Denver
Tankless water heaters have come a long way. This type of appliance takes water straight from the tap and heats it using either a high-powered gas burner or an electric heating element. The result is a near constant supply of hot water, no need to reheat or maintain the temperature of a full tank of water.
While these units are incredibly sophisticated, they are still susceptible to a number of issues that an Aspen Creek technician can identify and repair for you:
- Mineral build-up, possibly due to hard water
- Ignition failure or flame failure
- System overload from too many taps at once
- Blocked air supply or exhaust
- Gas supply issues
- Built-up dirt on burners
Some of these issues can and will be fixed by our technician, however, others may be attributed to an older model of tankless water heater. If your tankless water heater is 10+ years old, it may need to be switched out for a newer model, you may need to add a second unit to keep up with demand, or you may simply want to explore going to a standard water heater. We can discuss all your options.
