Traditional tank water heaters, also known as storage water heaters, use fuel sources such as natural gas, propane, or electricity. Tank water heaters store hot water in a storage tank, typically ranging from 20 to 120 gallons capacity.
Your personal plumbers at Apollo Plumbing offer a variety of ENERGY STAR® tank water heaters with enhanced insulation, heat traps, and more efficient burners which lower energy use by up to 8% compared to older units.
Common Tank Water Heater Trouble Sources
While a tank water heater seems simple enough, its many components all have to work together to ensure you receive a reliable supply of hot water. These are the most common tank water heater problems Apollo plumbers find:
- Broken pilot light: Loss of hot water in a gas system is often caused when a pilot light goes out. Apollo Plumbing can easily get yours started again.
- Another common cause of lost hot water, a broken thermostat can either be repaired or replaced. It’s one of the first things your personal Apollo Plumber checks.
- Leaking tank: A leaking tank won’t affect temperature, it is a serious problem. The leak may be caused by a cracked tank requiring replacement or poorly fitted part that can be repaired.
