Electric Water Heater Repair, Replacement, and Installation
Electric water heaters are a traditional form of hot water converters for many homes. They heat water through electrical currents that warm the upper element in the tank that initially warms the top half of the tanks water supply. As the preset temperature is reached in the tank, the bottom element maintains the water temperature throughout the tank. When water is drawn from the top of the tank, the tank replenishes water through a tube that reaches to the bottom of the tank. When the water temperature dips below the preset temperature, the upper element kicks on to heat the water to the desired level. This process continues to make sure your tank maintains hot water for your home.
Common signs of a problematic electric water heater:
- No hot water
- Leaking water heater
- Not enough hot water
- Water heater pilot will not stay lit
- Water around the base of the tank
- Rust colored water
- Water odors
- Electric water heater making strange noises

Advantages of an electric water heater:
- Safety: The risk for a gas leak is eliminated by using an electric water heater.
- Cost of Installation: An electric water heater is inexpensive to install as they do not require extra piping throughout the house.
- Life Expectancy: Electric water heaters use fewer parts than a gas water heater, and do not expose the parts to direct heat, meaning they may last past the normal life expectancy.
- Purchase Cost: the initial purchasing cost of an electric water heater is rather inexpensive and requires less installation costs.
- Space Requirements: Electric water heaters are built as tall units instead of wide, so they fit into small closets and spaces and do not need excess room around their perimeter.
- Greater Efficiency: Electric water heaters are highly efficient water heaters. Many people believe they raise the electricity bill through the roof, but in the long-run they are cheaper than many other alternatives.
The advantages to selecting an electric water heater are endless. Electric water heaters are much safer as the risk for a gas leak or explosion is minimal compared to gas water heaters, keeping your home and loved ones safe during all hours. The initial cost and long-run expenses, are not nearly as high as many other alternatives to using an electric water heater. One of the greatest advantages, and reason many people choose an electric water heater, is that they fit into small areas that would otherwise be wasted space. Because an electric water heater does not emit toxins or gases, like a gas water heater, they can be used in tight spaces where a gas water heater would not fit.
Major factors to consider:
- Safety of your loved ones and home
- Initial cost and lifetime expenses
- Life expectancy
