Water Heater Repair Frequently Asked Questions

Is a tank or tankless water

heater cheaper?

 A tank water heater is less expensive to purchase, but a tankless is more efficient thereby saving money over time.

What is a tankless water heater?

 A tankless water heater does not have a storage tank. It heats water directly. When you turn on your hot water faucet, cold water will travel through a pipe into the unit. Either a gas burner or an electric element heats the water as it passes through a heat exchanger. Tankless water heaters deliver an “on- demand” and constant supply of hot water.

Can I get an electric tankless

water heater?

 Tankless water heaters can be operated by either gas or electricity.

Why do I need to hire a plumber?

 It’s important that you choose a qualified, licensed plumber to repair or install your water heater. Not only could it be a health risk, you also risk the possibility damaging your property significantly, if not installed properly. We are trained professionals with years of training and experience. We are qualified to perform water heater repairs and installations up to code. 

What are some reasons to buy a tankless

instead of a traditional tank water heater? 

 Every situation is different, but some reasons are that they can be installed in small spaces, they do not run out of hot water and are usually less expensive to operate.all your water heater. Not only could it be a health risk, you also risk the possibility damaging your property significantly, if not installed properly. We are trained professionals with years of training and experience. We are qualified to perform water heater repairs and installations up to code.

What if I see water around my water heater? Is

my tank leaking?

Water on the floor or in the drain pan is generally
caused by one of the following: Drain valve leaking Condensation Temperature and pressure relief valve leaking Leaking from piping near the inlet and outlet Leak at gas valve threaded connection (gas
water heaters only) Leak from gaskets for electric elements (electric
water heaters only) Leak in water heater storage tank
A leaking water heater tank will continue to leak. If you
notice that the water is coming and going you may
have a condensation issue. This can form when a
water heater is over used. If your tank is leaking, it
needs to be replaced and Performance Plumbing can
provide water heater installation generally in one day.
