Reliable Water Heater Service
A water heater is integral to home comfort. There are many activities we tend to take for granted that rely on it, including a hot shower in the morning, washing clothes and cleaning the dishes. If your water heater fails or even if it provides hot water inconsistently, it affects your quality of life. Repairing or replacing a hot water heater in a timely manner is incredibly important as you don’t want it to leak and damage your basement or storage closet. Luckily, the team at Gold Star is here to help. Our company specializes in both water heater installation and repair and is dedicated to delivering exceptional customer service.
Hot Water When You Need It
Our clients deserve hot water when they need it, and the Gold Star team works hard to ensure they have it. If you have any issues with hot water in your home, our certified plumbers can inspect the unit, diagnose any troubles and explore your options with you. If there is a problem, a minor repair is often enough to fix it, but if necessary, we can also perform a new water heater installation.
Water Heater Installation & Replacement
Gold Star specializes in precision water heater installation, and if your water heater is older than 10 years, we strongly encourage you to consider replacing it. The old water heater has already provided excellent value, and you are now at increased risk of leaks, water damage and other issues. A new water heater should be affordable but also provide you excellent value over the next decade. Our experts will help you chose a model that is ideal for your home and usage.
Water Heater Repair
If your water heater is less than 10 years old, repairs may be an option for you. Gold Star performs water heater maintenance, and we repair units that are malfunctioning. When we recommend and carry out a repair on a water heater, you can depend on that fix over the long term. We not only work on electric water heaters but also those that use natural gas or propane.
Types of Water Heaters We Service
Gold Star services all types of residential hot water heaters. We have mentioned electric and gas water heaters but also work on different types of water heater solutions. The traditional water heater has a storage tank, but tankless water heaters—also called on-demand water heaters—are becoming increasingly prevalent as the technology advances. Our company also services heat pump water heaters, which are also known as hybrid water heating systems.
Tank-based water heaters are still the most common in the area. Gold Star installs, services and repairs tank water heater systems. We continue to recommend this system to homeowners because the equipment and labor are affordable, and it delivers a high flow rate compared to many alternatives.
Gold Star also installs, services and repairs on-demand water heater systems. Tankless systems are becoming more common in new construction, and many homeowners are upgrading to tankless water heaters because they are more energy efficient and have a longer lifespan than units with tanks.
Heat Pump Water Heater
Hybrid hot water heaters are a third option and can be installed as a standalone unit or integrated into an HVAC system. Gold Star installs, services and repairs heat pump water heaters, and they are a highly efficient option that often provides a faster return on investment than other solutions.
Is It Time to Replace Your Water Heater?
With proper maintenance, a water heater with a tank can last six to 12 years. Industry experts recommend the 10-year mark as the point in which homeowners should consider replacement. After a decade you have gotten your money’s worth from the system and the risk of leakage is high. Leaks can be small, but they can also be large and lead to substantial water damage. Regardless of age, you should perform routine inspections of your water heater and look for signs of wear. Indications can also be apparent in your water supply or through any noises that your water heater makes.
Water Heater Issues
- Over 10 Years Old
- Cold Water
- Strange Sounds
- Rust Colored Water
- Cloudy Water
Water heaters are constantly working to provide adequate hot water for bathing, laundry, cooking, and more. As with any mechanical system, over time, vital parts break down. With regular maintenance you can help keep them running for upwards of 15 years or longer. Draining your tank to remove sediment and checking electrical connections and heating elements is important for the longevity of your water heater.
