Northeast Calgary Hot Water Service & Repair
Highmark Plumbing is available for your Northeast Calgary hot water service & repair. Our skilled team understands both sorts of hot water heaters: those that have a tank, and those that heat water on demand and do not have a storage tank. Each type has its own merits, and its own installation difficulties. Both require periodic maintenance for best results.
Hot water heaters that have a tank are designed to hold hot water at a specific temperature at all times. This means that minerals in the water leach out over time and accumulate in the tank along with silt and other minor impurities. As a result, hot water tanks need to be emptied periodically and flushed out to remove the accumulated detritus. Tanked water heaters also have a device called an anode rod. This is an aluminum rod that extends down into the tank to attract assets in the water, helping to prevent the acetic content from pitting the wall of the water. An On-demand or tankless water heater, as they are sometimes known, do not have this problem. However, they have their own little quirks such as the heating element failing at a critical moment. Both types of water heaters utilize thermostats and sensors to heat the water to a comfortable temperature. In addition, water heaters with tanks have safety valves and vents, particularly those that are heated using gas. Your hot water service & repair would include inspecting all parts of your heater, checking moving parts and seals to make sure that they retain their integrity.
