Boise, Meridian, Nampa, and Caldwell's Gas Water Heater Experts

Gas Water Heaters

Another type of water heater that Drake Mechanical's plumbing technicians are experts in repairing gas water heaters or even replacing are gas water heaters.  Drake Mechanical deals with gas water heaters literally every day of the week.  From 40 gallon gas water heaters in Meridian clear on up to a 75 gallon gas water heater in Boise or a 120 gallon gas water heater in Caldwell.  Gas water heaters operate by generating heat at the bottom of the tank which then rises through a central exhaust which heats the water,  after that the heat and flue gas going through your roof in a flue pipe.  Gas water heaters typically heat water faster than electric water heaters and are more efficient so a gas water heater can may be more favorable to people who have a higher demand for hot water. Natural gas water heaters are also more environmentally friendly, and generally cost less than electric water heaters.  A byproduct of heating water is sediment buildup inside the tank.  The hard water minerals are baked out of the water when you heat it and fall to the bottom of the water heater.  Over time this sediment builds up and makes it harder for the water heater to heat water.  When you start hearing popping and banging coming from your gas water heater this is typically due to sediment buildup.  One of the things that our plumbers do during our 30 point plumbing inspection is flush the water heater out and verify that all of  the safety devices are working correctly.  Our plumbers recommend having a plumbing inspection and flushing your water heater at least once a year.
