Residential & Commercial Water Heater Replacement in Milwaukee
Though water heaters are small, they have the potential to cause serious damage to your property if improperly installed. Handyman or DIY homeowner installed water heaters could result in:
- Gas leaks—a licensed plumber knows to check all gas lines for improper placement or obstructions which would cause fires or explosions.
- Carbon Monoxide Poisoning—incorrect venting sizes can result in CO gas to leak from under the component into rooms improper
- Pressure build up—though small, the pressure valve allows your water heater to relieve unnecessary water or air build up in the tank. Without it, your water heater could explode.
Our plumbers are certified to diagnose your home’s needs and further advise which brand and model will give you the best performance for your budget. Our water heaters fall into several categories, including:
Conventional Water Heaters
These are more commonly known as tank water heaters. Conventional storage limits the amount of available hot water to the size of the tank you have since it stores hot water until you’re ready to use it. The heating process must restart once you’ve used all the hot water, causing a delay before more is available.
Demand Water Heaters
These are more commonly known as tankless water heaters because they have no tank to store hot water. Instead, they heat the water as you use it, resulting in continuous hot water without needing to wait for a tank to refill.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
Heat pump water heaters do not generate heat specifically for heating your water. They divert heat from one source—such as your air’s heating/cooling system—and focus it on heating your water instead. The heat is focused back on the air when you are done using your water.
Coil & Indirect Water Heaters
Your home’s space heating system is used to heat water with this type of water heater. It provides hot water on-demand without the need for storing it in a tank. Turning on your hot water causes it to flow through a heating coil or heat exchanger installed in the furnace or boiler.
Essential Water Heater Maintenance
Water heaters are complex machines that need regularly scheduled maintenance from expert plumbers to continue running efficiently. Flushing your water heater once a year is recommended to eliminate contaminants like sediment and minerals from clogging your bottom drain, but other maintenance checks beyond that are suggested to keep complex components functioning.
