Have you ever had your hot water break in the winter? It’s not a fun experience. It’s important to get your plumbing checked and your water heater system replaced before the wintertime to ensure you don’t run into any problems. If you need to have your plumbing checked, call your local Double Oak plumbers, C&W Plumbing before it’s too late. Having hot water is a luxury many of us do not think about until we lose it, but in the cold, the lack of hot water can be an enormous inconvenience. Because of the way they are built, traditional hot water heaters can easily break. The thermostats can malfunction or fail entirely. Built-up sediment deposits can form at the bottom of the tank, causing a blockage that eventually stops the heater from functioning. If the dip tube breaks, the incoming hot water and cold water will be mixed, resulting in a plumbing issue that a professional plumber needs to resolve. Additionally, uncontrolled thermal expansion can result in dangerous pressure levels, which can cause burst pipes that cause long-term plumbing damage. Although these problems may not sound serious, if you experience plumbing damage, you may be without hot water for a few days to a week or more. In the winter, this means not having water to eat, drink, or bathe. The best option is to replace your water heater with a tankless water heater. This is not only a more energy-efficient option but a tankless water heater also lasts considerably longer than a normal hot water and does not have the normal complications. In addition, they are generally cheaper than traditional water heaters. Make sure you have a hot water heater that is not on the verge of breaking, and if it’s the right option for you, invest in water heater replacement for your home. Also, get your plumbing checked to make sure there are no issues before it’s too late. Call the professionals at C&W Plumbing at 972-395-2597 for a diagnostic check up on your home.
