Maintaining hot water production is crucial to your household needs. At Res-Q Plumbing we offer a variety of water heater repair services for any water heater type.
Electric Water Heaters
The typical electric water heater is wired to a 220-volt circuit. To heat the water, the current typically passes through two electrical-resistance heating elements: one at the middle of the tank and one at the bottom. Power is delivered to each element through a thermostat.
Gas Water Heaters
An alternative to the electric water heater is the gas-fired heater, which typically utilizes natural gas or propane. Instead of electrical-resistance elements, a gas-fired heater has a burner that is fed gas through a control valve and a thermostat switch. Since gas-fired heaters heat the tank, which in turn heats the water, there will be more wear and tear on the tank than with electric heat.
