Water Heater Repair in Lowell

Before you replace your existing water heater, you should first look into whether or not your current water heater can be repaired or improved. Water heaters are designed to last around 10 years, and as they approach the end of their lifespan, they may require a little extra TLC. This does not mean that they should automatically be replaced. 

If you are experiencing issues, our water heater repair experts in Lowell and Tyngsborough will help you determine if repair or replacement is your best option. 

If you are experiencing any of the following issues, contact an experienced plumber:

  • The water from your hot tap is only lukewarm
  • There is no hot water coming from your faucet at all
  • Your water heater is making strange sounds
  • The water coming from your taps is discolored
  • You see signs of a leak around your water heater tank
  • Your water heater takes an excessive amount of time to heat the water

Many water heater repairs can be handled quickly. Handling such repairs promptly can help you extend the life of your current water heater. The plumbers at A. Fagundes Plumbing & Heating Inc. will inspect your existing water heater and provide you with all of your options. We will also teach you how to care for and maintain your unit.

Water Heater Replacement

Replacing your water heater with a new one is a big decision. Installing a new water heater is a significant investment and can go a long way in improving the efficiency and comfort of your home. You want to be sure you are selecting the right water heater for your needs, and one that is appropriate for your home’s size and configuration.

Did You Know You Can Get Tax Credits for Energy Efficient Upgrades?

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022 extends the tax credits offered by the federal government to homeowners who made qualifying energy efficient improvements after December 31, 2021. If you qualify, you can claim these credits on your taxes when you file in 2022.

Qualifying energy efficient upgrades are those improvements or products that help your home save energy; help you save money; and help all of us protect our environment from climate change. To apply, you’ll need to complete the IRS Form 5695: Residential Energy Credits worksheet. 

More good news: Beginning January 1, 2023, federal tax credits on energy efficient upgrades will be in place for 10 years. And, the $500 lifetime cap has been changed to $1,000 to $2,000 annually, dependent on the type of efficiency improvements you make. This means more credit claims for more projects!

Benefits of Flushing Your Water Heater

Flushing sediment from your water heater is an important maintenance task that is often overlooked but carries significant benefits for the performance and longevity of your system. Over time, minerals and debris can accumulate at the bottom of the tank, forming sediment layers. This sediment buildup can impede the heater's efficiency and lead to various issues, making regular flushing essential.

Benefits of Regular Water Heater Flushing Include:

  • Maintains Efficiency: Sediment acts as an insulating layer, reducing the heater's ability to transfer heat to the water. Flushing removes sediment, allowing the heating elements to work more efficiently and heat water faster.
  • Prevents Damage: Excessive sediment buildup can cause overheating of the tank bottom, leading to damage and potentially tank failure. Flushing helps prevent corrosion and extends the lifespan of the water heater by reducing stress on the tank.
  • Improves Water Quality: Sediment can contribute to water discoloration and unpleasant odors. Flushing removes sediment along with any accumulated debris, resulting in cleaner, fresher-tasting water.
  • Reduces Energy Consumption: A clean water heater operates more efficiently, reducing energy consumption and lowering utility bills. Flushing removes sediment that can hinder heat transfer, allowing the heater to maintain optimal performance.
  • Prevents Plumbing Issues: Sediment buildup can also affect other plumbing fixtures by clogging pipes and reducing water flow. Regular flushing helps prevent clogs and ensures consistent water pressure throughout your home.

Regularly flushing sediment from your water heater is a simple yet effective way to maintain its efficiency, prevent damage, and ensure high water quality. By incorporating this task into your routine maintenance schedule, you can prolong the lifespan of your water heater, reduce energy costs, and enjoy reliable hot water supply for years to come. If you're unsure how to flush your water heater or need assistance, consider consulting with a professional plumber for guidance and assistance.
