Water Heater Replacement

The typical water heater lasts 10 years before it needs to be replaced. If any major issues are spotted prior to that, however, installing a new system may be your best bet. Note that all new water heater quotes come at no cost to you. We want to be sure that the idea of a service cost doesn’t stop you from doing what’s right for you and your family.

Our Jackson plumbers recommend getting your water heater in Jackson serviced on a regular basis. This allows them to scrub grime away from the pilot light and test the sturdiness of the couplings. These periodic water heater tune-ups prevent large problems from becoming disasters.

Tips From The Water Heater Experts

When it comes to water heaters, our team of highly skilled and trained plumbing experts have years of experience and can provide you with all of the information that you need regarding heating the water in your home. Below you will find helpful information about water heaters, but feel free to call our team any time with any questions or concerns that you may have!

Water Heaters Primary Function

Prior to the invention of the water heater, you had to warm water in a pot on a fire or a stove. You’d then have to cart it to the tub, risking blisters and burns on the way. As the process was time consuming, families often opted to take turns bathing in the same water. In 1889, however, an inventor by the name of Edwin Ruud succeeded in making things a little easier. At first, water heaters were a convenience of well-to-do families, but that soon changed. We’ve come a long way to ensuring every household has access to hot water when and where it’s needed. The addition of tankless units also lets us do it in minimal space.

Today’s water heaters are convenient and intuitive. Once installed, they run almost entirely without human intervention. Nowadays, there are several designs available in the Jackson area. And, when it comes to installing the system that’s right for you, it’s hard to beat the plumbing experts at Aspen Plumbing.

Home Maintenance Plans To Keep Your Plumbing Equipment Running Strong

Frequently Asked Questions

While chemical drain cleaners are acceptable in certain situations, we discourage using them frequently or as a first solution. These chemicals are extremely toxic and can eat away at pipes if overused. Ask us about safer alternatives to deter and clear clogs.
Our plumbers have access to tools and materials that can clear up any clog without damaging your pipes. And, if your home has recurring clogs, only a real Jackson plumber can get rid of them for good!

A lot of plumbing problems are easy to spot, but leaks have a tendency to go unnoticed. This is because they often start small and can go unnoticed for months or years. They can also hide under floors, above ceilings, and behind walls, making them more challenging to find. Here are a few signs you may have a leak:

  • Rapidly climbing water bills
  • Your water meter ticks even when you aren’t using water
  • A musty smell or signs of mold become visible
  • Discoloration and dampness occurs near tubs and toilets

If you see any of these signs, don’t panic. Call Aspen Plumbing at (517) 750-9913 and schedule an appointment instead!

If your shower pressure is low when other fixtures are running, you may have an insufficient plumbing system. If the problem persists when only the shower is running, there may be a leaking pipe somewhere.
 

There are a number of simple ways to downsize your water bill. These include:

  • Taking shorter showers
  • Turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth
  • Only running the washing machine or dryer when you have a full load
  • Installing low-flow showerheads and toilets
  • Adding a brick to your toilet tank to reduce the amount of water used per flush

If you try all these things and your water bill keeps climbing, you may have a leak in your home. Call (517) 750-9913, so one of our plumbers can investigate.

The average water heater in Jackson lasts between 8 and 12 years. Note that this applies to gas water heaters; electric ones can last a little longer. However, the signs that a new water heater is needed don’t relate to fuel source. These include:

  • Dark or rusty water
  • No hot water
  • Flooding and dampness around your water heater

In the Jackson area, it’s not uncommon for temperatures to dip below 32°F. When that happens, pipes can freeze and burst. Fixing frozen pipes is one of the most expensive plumbing repairs you can have. Fortunately, there are steps homeowners can take to prevent this catastrophe. These include:

  • Opening doors and cabinets on cold days
  • Insulating pipes inside and outside your home
  • Keeping a faucet dripping
  • Quickly patching any cracks
  • Never set your thermostat lower than 55°F
