Storage (or Traditional) Water Heater Repair & Installation

A storage, or tank, heater is among the most popular type of systems for residential customers. These units always keep water at a desired temperature. A thermostat within the unit senses the temperature of the water inside the tank and turns either the electric or gas furnace on to maintain the internal temperature.

The temperature within these units is adjustable to suit any needs of the customer; however, our expert plumbers recommend setting the temperature to 120о Fahrenheit rather than 140о Fahrenheit to reduce energy consumption and the risk of scalding.

Additionally, conventional storage units are equipped with a safety feature called a Temperature and Pressure (T and P) Relief Valve, which opens to relieve the tank’s pressure. Most storage tanks have a metal rod, called the sacrificial anode, which is suspended in the tank. Rather than eat away at the walls of the tank, minerals in the water react with the rod. Some tanks are glass-lined to reduce the potential for corrosion.

Water Heater Maintenance in Columbus

To ensure that your water heater continues to function properly, we recommend flushing your tank at least once a year. Additionally, our Columbus water heater experts suggest that you replace any standard plastic drain valves with brass ball valves.

The benefits of a brass ball valve are:

  • It makes your flushing system sturdier due to a larger opening
  • It helps ensure a more thorough flushing
