Hot Water Heaters – Plumbing services in West Georgia and East Alabama
Today’s water heaters require little to no maintenance at all. This is not the case for older models. The life expectancy of a hot water heater is usually 8-12 years depending on the size, manufacturer, and the quality of going into the heater. If you are no longer receiving the hot water that you need and your water heater is not a late model heater, you probably need to consider upgrading to a newer model.
You Can Find The Signs
There are indicators that will tell you it is time to purchase a new water heater. You can check around the base of the water heater for small water leaks. These leaks can easily go unnoticed as the heat from the water heater evaporates most of the moisture making it hard to see without strong lighting. In certain situations, a hot water heater may simply crack or leak in a joint which can cause major flood damage if not caught quickly. It is best to check your water heater at least twice a year for leaks and also to know the age of your heater. More often than not, there is a metal plate on the side of water heaters that contain such information. Sometimes the information is stamped directly into the metal side of the water heater itself.
If you believe that your water heater is no longer performing as it may have in the past, call us and let us evaluate the heater for issues. If your water heater is an older model, you may consider an upgrade in effort to enjoy hotter water while also enjoying lower monthly expenses. Shad’s Plumbing can come out to your house and repair or replace your water heater with ease. Also, we can take the old water heater with us and dispose of it properly so that you will not have to do so.

We called Shads Plumbing to come out to look at some problems we were having. I met Steve and he walked me through some problems that he saw and explained to me in detail how he would fix them. He gave me an estimate of what I wanted done and he was a whole lot cheaper than others that I had called. They came out the next day and fixed all my problems. I was very impressed!! I would recommend Shads Plumbing to anyone who wants a job done right at a great cost.
