Is Your Water Heater Showing Signs of Failure?

Is Your Water Heater Showing Signs of Failure?

Having hot water on demand is a luxury that is often taken for granted. If your water heater is old or outdated, it’s more likely that it will fail. When it’s time to consider repairing or replacing your water heater, call Crystal Blue Plumbing, Heating & Air. If you enjoy continuous hot water showers and never worrying about your water heater failing on you, you may want to do so before a serious issue occurs. Emergency repair and replacements can be expensive, especially if it happens over a weekend. If you are seeing any of the following signs, call Crystal Blue for Loomis water heater replacement. 

Warning Signs of Water Heater Failure

  • Energy Efficiency. Did you know water heaters that are old, outdated, or running inefficiently use much more energy than they need to?  A newer system will work much more efficiently and safely.
  • Save Money: A recent report suggests that a typical family who has a tankless water heater installed into their home can save more than $100 per year in gas bills compared to a family who uses a standard water heating system. Larger families can save even more than this.
  • Save Energy: As noted above, the “on-demand” function of tankless water heaters means that the heaters are not an energy consumption liability. With tankless water heaters being up to 96% efficient (conventional tanks have an efficiency rate of 60-65%), you will be able to significantly reduce the high levels of energy and water typically consumed by conventional heaters.
  • Endless Hot Water: Tired of having to take cold showers after someone in your home has used up all of the hot water? Well, tankless water heaters have an endless supply of hot water, so that never has to happen again!
  • Save Space: Trying to free up some space in your home or business? Tankless water heaters can easily be mounted onto walls, as well as outside of your home. Unlike conventional water heaters, many smaller tankless units can be installed under cabinets or in a closet.
  • Longevity: Unlike traditional water heaters that have an average lifespan of 8 to 12 years, tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of more than 20 years. If you’re thinking of selling your home, this will certainly add to a home’s resale value!
  • No More Leaks: When a traditional water heater leaks or fails, it can damage and flood your home with tens of gallons of water. You will have peace of mind knowing that if for any reason, your tankless water heater was to malfunction, it would only leave behind less than one gallon of water damage. Because tankless water heaters are, in fact, tankless, there’s a slim possibility of flooding due to a ruptured tank.

Six Benefits of Routine Service For Your Furnace

Six Benefits of Routine Service For Your Furnace

Throughout the year, you’ll come to depend on your furnace for at least half of it, which means it’s important to keep up with the upkeep. The heating bill can be expensive enough without the additional cost of repairs, and a furnace in need of servicing might be the cause for most of those expenses. Worst of all is dealing with a busted furnace when you need it most. Like any appliance, your furnace works best with routine servicing. When your heating system is beyond repair, you can have peace of mind knowing that Crystal Blue Plumbing, Heating & Air has all of your Sacramento furnace installation needs covered. 

Benefits of a Sacramento Furnace Installation

Your furnace isn’t built to last forever, and with time and use, your furnace goes through a lot of wear and tear. Routinely servicing your furnace can not only help to cut down on cost but prevent some dangerous safety hazards. Actively maintaining your furnace can also push back when it’s time for a costly replacement. A furnace in need of service is more than just expensive, but a frustrating nuisance and health hazard. Here’s how routine furnace services can benefit you.

 

  • One less risk of a fire, gas leak, or carbon monoxide leak. A damaged furnace is more than a financial drain, but a major safety hazard. A furnace combusts fuel to produce heat, and if it’s malfunctioning, that could lead to gas and carbon monoxide leaks. A furnace without proper ventilation can start a fire if there are flammable materials nearby. Gas leaks can also quickly start a fire and carbon monoxide leaks are fatal. If you suspect your furnace is old, or you ever smell gas, call an HVAC technician immediately. Servicing your furnace on a regular basis ensures that it’s fully functional, intact, and its safety precautions still work.
  • Your indoor air quality could improve. Besides preventing fatal safety hazards, routinely servicing your furnace can drastically improve your home’s indoor air quality. Your furnace works by ventilating and circulating heat throughout your home, and it has an air filter for debris and other contaminants. A furnace that’s lacking in service and maintenance, however, would imply that the air filter is dirty, and that means it’s circulating dirty air throughout your home. Depending on the size of your home, pets, and how often you use your furnace, the air filter should be replaced at least once a year.
  • Cheaper utility bills. A furnace that’s well maintained can work efficiently and run less often to heat your home. Heating bills are already costly enough, but a damaged furnace overworking itself can drastically increase the cost. Proper maintenance saves more than just your utility bill, but the cost of avoidable repairs, or worse, an early replacement.
  • Less frustrating repairs or replacements. Your furnace will need the occasional repair, but a furnace in long need of servicing could result in several repairs adding up. Your furnace is complicated with a lot of components that need routine cleaning and tune-ups. Most repairs can be prevented with regular care, which involves cleaning the air filter, keeping it properly ventilated, and tuning up parts when necessary.
  • You’re comfortable. Your comfort is important, but a malfunctioning furnace will have a hard time keeping your home warm and cozy. Servicing your furnace helps to keep it running effectively and efficiently. A functioning furnace also distributes heat evenly, preventing pesky cold spots and running the unit longer than necessary.
  • Your home’s better prepared for winter. The winter season can be a harsh time of year, and a disaster can happen. Heavy snowfalls and ice can weigh down your roof and cause a leak. The frigid temperatures outside put your plumbing at risk of freezing. It can also be unbearably cold outside, and a busted furnace makes for a very miserable winter. Routinely servicing your furnace ensures it’s prepared for the hard work ahead come next winter.
