Cold water simply does not make for a great showering experience, to say the least. If you are like most people these days, you won't be able to live one day in your home with a broken water heater. Generally, heaters have a duration and standard longevity of around a decade. Depending on how often the heaters are used or how often it is used determines whether or not you will need to replace or repair your hot water heater.

The way a water heater works is that cold water gets into your tank and this has a gas burner or heating element to heat it to a comfortable one hundred thirty degrees. Thermostats within the tank regulate the heat and tank pressure builds up. Pressure then sends heated water out into the faucets into your home depending on which tap you turn on.

 You will need hot water repair and replacement when your heater makes a strange, unceasing noise when you use it. Water heaters that have bangs, pops, cracks or squeaks each time you turn them on are an annoyance. Heaters with noise are a sign of the heating element's failure to work properly or a mineral buildup. It is time to think about replacements or repair for your water heater when you are encountering these issues in your own home's water heater. 



Of course, it's not illegal to attempt to try and install your own water heater yourself. However, you do risk electrocution if you don't have a professional plumbing service do it. Make sure that the best plumber in downtown Chicago company you hire has the right permits to do heater installation.


Water Heater Replacement provided  in Chicago

 When left too long without repair or inspection, minerals from the water begin corroding the steel which then corrodes the interior of your tank. This could cause a leak, in which case, repair is no longer possible. Rather, you will need to get your entire system replaced. 

The good news is that the newer versions are more than efficient in terms of energy compared to older versions. There are insulation styles inserted between the outer shell and the tank that manufacturers inject that result in higher retention of heat. There is less corrosion possible in new tanks with the newer glass liners available.

The good news is that there are more than a few reliable professionals in your area with the right permits to be able to diagnose your water heater and make the appropriate repairs or replacements, whichever the case may be.

"I recommend using Narwhal for your next plumbing project. In my case, they installed a new hot water heater in my home. Jacob, the owner, was easy to communicate with, prompt and his pricing was competitive. As far as the work, they came on time, did a clean and professional job and were very tidy. I will definitely use them again in the future"

"This is how it should go! My water heater was gushing and it was time to replace it. I made a few phone calls, but Narwhal was clearly the winner! Jacos offered a quick response time and quote delivery via text and email, the best price, fast installation, super nice guys, fabulous branding and website. I want to shout it from the rooftop - HIRE NARWHAL!!"
Ernie C.
"I contacted two plumbers regarding a hot water fix. One didnt respond for over 24 hours; Narwhal contacted me within 2 hours and the issue was resolved before lunch time. 
In term of the actual work, I had a corroded dielectric union. The union could not be broken, so the copper tubing upstream needed to be disconnected and soldered back together. Narwhal was prepared to perform the basic job, but also able to react when the scope of the job expanded. I was also impressed that boot covers were worn in my home and the job was performed very cleanly.
Overall, I was very pleased with the level of service and would recommend Narwhal for anyone's plumbing needs."
