There is nothing like the shock of a cold shower to inspire an emergency call to the plumber. Hot water heaters will eventually stop functioning properly or start leaking. What the homeowner needs to know is whether to replace or repair and what type of water heater is the best choice for a replacement.

If a hot water heater needs to be replaced there are three basic types: Conventional -has a water tank located in the house or attic that holds water which is heated by gas or electricity. Tankless – a standalone wall mounted unit that supplies hot water only when required. Solar – has tubes panels or tanks that are heated by the sun with a separate collection system and control panel.

It is very important not to try to do the repair or replacement yourself. A hot water heater is not usually a do it yourself project. First of all a good plumber can quickly access the problem and repair or replace it and the work is usually guaranteed by a professional plumbing company. Therefore it is vital not to contact your next door neighbor’s brother or a good friend, unless they are a licensed plumber and professional plumbers are usually available any time of the day or night.

Plan ahead, do not wait for an emergency. Do your homework about reputable plumbers before an emergency finds you without hot water. Talk to the Better Business Bureau about plumbers in your area with good ratings. Get references from friends, family and coworkers. Find out how long the companies you are considering have been in business and if they are insured and bonded? Does the plumbing company guarantee their work?

If time allows research the plumbers in your area. Ask neighbors and family who they use. Find out how long a company has been in business and ask the plumber for references. Does the company have insurance and is their work guaranteed? For the best experience, researching a plumber is the best way to make sure you are hiring a professional with the knowledge and expertise to take care of your plumbing needs properly.
