Conventional Water Heater

When a water heater bursts and floods your home, many things can happen. The worst of which is dealing with the leaky tank itself. If left unchecked, this could cost us as much or more in repairs down the line. At North Peachtree Plumbing Co., we provide emergency hot water repair services, so our customers do not need to worry about their flooded spaces.

Importance of a Conventional Water Heater

The conventional water heater is essential for water heating and water softening. A conventional water heater in good condition could last up to 20 years, but you want to make sure that your water heater is in proper condition.

Some of the reasons a water heater is an essential include:

  • Provides Warm Water
  • Environmental Friendly
  • Provides Reliable Water
  • Saves Money
  • And more.

Water heaters are crucial parts of our home, and we must make sure they are well maintained and working efficiently.

Provides Warm Water

Water heaters provide us with warm water when we need it. When it is time to shower, we want hot water immediately; we don’t want to wait.

Water heaters can provide hot water for a variety of uses, such as:

  • Bathwater
  • Washing water
  • Cooking water
  • Cleaning water
  • And more.

Warm water is crucial for every household as we use it so often.

Environmental Friendly

The high-efficiency water heaters cause less air pollution, both indoors and outdoors. Such systems produce fewer greenhouse emissions due to their lower energy usage. These appliances also come with replaceable parts, so you can continue using them longer without having too much waste material filling up landfills.

Provides Reliable Water

When you invest in a good quality water heater, your life changes for the better. A reliable and efficient system will provide hot showers all year round without failure. We cannot live without water, whether it is drinking it or using it. 

Saves Money

When we use a heater system in our house, the amount of energy consumed decreases which means less consumption overall, leading to savings! If your bill is high, consider contacting our professionals at North Peachtree Plumbing Co. to help you before things get worse.


Effects of a Water Heater Leak

A water heater leak could do a lot more damage than just messing up one area. If left unchecked, it will spread through the whole household, causing walls and ceilings to be destroyed.

There may be many issues that occur if you ignore a water leak, such as:

  • Contaminated Water
  • Property Damage
  • Possible Explosion

Contaminated Water

We all know how important our water is. If you’re noticing a strong, chemical smell coming from your home’s pipes after it rains or when doing bathing activities, then there may be an issue. The result of this may be harmful water full of chemicals or bacteria running into your home. This water is harmful to your health and may be hazardous.

Property Damage

Water damage is one of the most common structural issues in homes. Foundation weakness can lead to mold and mildew that may create more significant problems such as decreased property value.

Possible Explosion

Water heaters are an essential part of any home, but they can also be very dangerous if they are not well maintained. Over time this lack or neglect will cause the hot-water tank inside your stovetop or bathtub faucet to leak. If the pressure is too high in the tank, it may cause it to explode.

Steps to Take in a Water Heater Emergency

If you ever have a water heater that is leaking out gallons of water, follow the following steps to prevent further damage:

  1. Turn off the water heater right away. If you are using a gas heater, the switch is located on the heater. If you use an electric water heater, go to the circuit breaker panel to turn off the appropriate breaker.
  2. Turn off the water supply to your water heater. You will need to find the shut-off valve where your water line runs and ensure it is fully closed. Depending on the severeness of the case, shutting off the main water supply may be the solution to end leaking.
  3. Clean up the water using towels, vacuum, or any other appropriate items you may have.

Gas Leaks

A gas leak is hazardous, whether a methane or propane gas leak. The longer you wait to have your water supply checked, the more potential for an explosion to occur when repairs are made.

Contact North Peachtree Plumbing immediately if you notice any water leaking from your tank. It is not always visible, but there are signs that you can watch out for.

Some of the signs of a water leak include:

  • An excessive amount of rust around the tank
  • Excessive condensation
  • Dripping sounds
  • And more.

Leaking water heaters is often the cause of household emergencies; water issues can occur from other things besides the waterline. A gas leak can be hazardous, and any issue that occurs from the gas line may cause gas to leak into your house. The slightest spark can start a fire and put everyone in your home at risk.

    From Our Happy Customers

    Great work at a fair price. Tom replaced all our toilets with low flow ones and we could not be any happier. He cleaned up the areas and left no mess like other plumbers we have used.

    — Cliff Roswell, Ga

    Called with a leaking water heater. These guys came out the same day got it replaced and hauled off the old heater. I called around and this company was the best priced and have great reviews. Will use it again.

    — David Johns Creek, Ga

    We love Tom! He's the best! He is always available, on time, and has been able to do things other plumbers told me were not possible. I have referred him to friends and family and they love him, too. I wouldn't use anyone else for our plumbing needs.

    — Steve Atlanta, Ga

    He’s the best around! Not sure what I would have done without him!!!!

    — Jason Brookhaven Ga

    Fast and prompt service and reasonably priced. Would definitely call for anything else we need.

    — Daren Atlanta, Ga

    Very happy with the service. We have used North Peachtree for years. They replaced my kitchen faucet and then replaced my water heater with a tankless heater when my old heater started leaking.
