Water Heater Repair
In the Texas area, gas water heaters are the most common type found in residential plumbing applications. They use a small flow of natural gas to ignite/catch fire a burner assembly at the bottom of the heater inside a combustion chamber, raising the temperature of the water inside the tank above it. Gas water heaters are popular because of their comparatively low price, high efficiency, and good lifespan (anywhere between 8-14 years average).
The gas Hot Water Heater has a fairly fast recovery rate (the speed at which the water inside the tank reheats itself after being completely emptied of hot water) and can be preset to temperatures as high as 130 degrees Fahrenheit. They direct the heat generated by the combustion chamber through the flu, or vent pipe at the top of the heater. This vent pipe usually joins into the vent system for the home’s heating and air unit. There are various sizes for gas water heaters, as they range from the standard 40 gallons, all the way up to large residential and commercial size units surpassing 100 gallons. We install and service them all at Alamo Plumbing Solutions.
