Water Heaters Atlanta
Best Water Heater Repair Services
All homes have some sort of water heating system, be it gas, electric, or tankless. And unfortunately, none of them last forever. Most standard water heaters have an average life span of anywhere from 12-15 years, give or take. You will know it is time for replacement when one of several things happen: a lack of hot water, a leaking water heater, or possibly rust-colored water. And when it comes time for Atlanta water heater repair or replacement, we are the first call you should make.
If you have a gas water heater, give us a call for your Atlanta water heater repair needs. Gas water heaters operate via natural gas (or sometimes propane). They use a burner to heat up the tank of water to an adjustable temperature, usually no more than 125 degrees. Gas water heaters have a fast recovery rate, meaning that once all the hot water from the tank is depleted, they can quickly heat up a full tank again, allowing for more fixtures to be used at once (shower, dishwasher, etc.). Gas water heaters produce combustion, so they have a vent at the top to channel all spent hot gases away from the unit itself.
Electric water heaters function by using two thermostats located on the side of the tank to heat up two elements within the tank. These elements get red hot, heating all the water inside. The thermostats are adjustable to 125 degrees in most cases. Electric water heaters do not require a vent, so they can be installed in a wider variety of spaces. They have a slower recovery rate than gas water heaters, however, so they are not without flaws. Either system will function in any Atlanta home built for them, and both have roughly the same life span. All sizes are available, from small, 10-gallon units to large scale 100-gallon units and everything in between.
Tankless water heaters are a relatively new concept to the U.S., having been popular in Japan and Europe for years. Many Atlanta homes are now having these systems installed. Tankless water heaters occupy a very small area, averaging about the size of a small suitcase, and are wall-mountable. They use (on most units) a combination of gas and electricity to operate, and are much more efficient than standard water heaters. They operate cleanly and quietly, and require little to no maintenance. They can be installed inside or outside, and as such, have different venting requirements than tank-type heaters.

As far as single-family homes are concerned, only two types of drainage systems exist: septic systems and sewer systems. No matter how a home is built, whether it be on a concrete slab, over a basement, or over a crawlspace, waste water and sewage has to escape in some way. While septic systems are becoming..
Drainage systems in houses have not changed much in design over the last century. Other than changes and updates to the plumbing code, requiring slight tweaks and improvements on existing drains, drain repair, and new construction, the drainage section of a plumbing system must function a certain way.
