Hot Water Heater Repair
We know all about conventional gas or electric water heaters as well as newer tankless (on- demand) water heaters. Don’t stress over water heater repairs, Vancouver’s Cambie Plumbing Plumbing will take plumbing problems off your back. You may purchase a water heater through us or pick up one from the supplier of your choice and hire us to install it.
The life expectancy of a conventional hot water heater is 8-10 years in Vancouver, due to the hard mineral content found in our water. Hard water will shorten the life, regular maintenance will prolong it.
Tankless heaters are considered more energy efficient than conventional heaters because they don’t have to continually heat a tank of water. Tankless heaters heat water instantly whenever a hot water tap is opened. But not all conventional heaters are created equally. We do carry brands that rival tankless heaters for efficiency and require no special modifications to your power supply, gas lines or ventilation.
Is your water heater too hot?
To reduce the risk of scalding and to avoid the risk of running out of hot water, most plumbing companies, including Vancouver’s Cambie Plumbing Plumbing, recommend a temperature setting of 120°-125° F.
Always keep safety in mind when it comes to water heaters. Never store paints, solvents or combustibles near the unit due to the obvious risk of fire.
