Professional Water Heater Service for Southeastern Wisconsin
One of the most reliable parts of your home is the water heater. It keeps chugging along, day after day, ensuring you have consistently warm water for the various appliances that require it. They don’t require a significant amount of upkeep and maintenance, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore it completely until you’re ready to replace it.
Hard and Soft Water
For instance, a water heater can become filled with sediment over time depending on the makeup of the water flowing into it. If it’s hard water – which contains minerals like calcium, magnesium carbonate and manganese – then your system can decrease in efficiency and can actually end up causing damage to the pipes in your home. To keep the hardness of the water in check, you can add softeners to treat it. These softeners use polystyrene beads that attract minerals to them, removing the minerals and making the water safer.
Roman Electric can test the water in your home to determine how hard it is, and we can offer softening solutions to best suit your situation.
Water Heater Maintenance and Replacement
Caring for your water heater doesn’t stop there. Performing basic upkeep ensures it doesn’t lose efficiency and keeps it running for as many as 15 years. The steps to maintain the unit itself are fairly straightforward, but if any larger problems arise or exist, a call to Roman Electric may be in order. We are equipped to diagnose and remedy any and all problems with your water heater, and our team of experienced technicians are equipped to find the best way to help you!
Time to Go Tankless?
The option to go with a tankless water heater over a traditional unit is one that offers significant benefits. Instead of water flowing into a tank and being pre-heated, you get water on demand, saving you water and money on the energy bill. There are a few different variations you’ll have to choose from, though, and we’d be glad to help walk you through the pros and cons of each. Give Roman Electric a call and go tankless today!
