Water Heater Repair and Installaion in Durham, NC

Bud Matthews Services - Water Heaters

Water heaters have a very basic, yet fundamental purpose in our households. Hot water allows for cooking, cleaning and bathing: the foundations of civilization, all brought to you by a cylindrical tube located in your basement or garage. Water heaters have branched out and now utilize different systems for performing the same task, but old-fashioned tank models still remain in wide use. And no matter what type of water heater you have, you need a service that can install, repair and maintain it to keep it running at its best.

That’s where we come in. At Bud Matthews Services, we’re trained to handle problems with water heaters of all variety. Whether you have a tank model, a tankless water heater or some variety of heat pump water heater, we’re ready to install, maintain or repair it for you. Don’t trust some other company with this all-important component in your household. Call us today and let us show you what we can do.

No matter what kind of water heater you have, Bud Matthews Services provides expert service throughout Durham, NC.

Different Models Perform the Same Duties

The main different in water heaters is the method by which they do their job. Tanked models use a large tank which it heats up via a series of burners, while tankless systems use heated coils wrapped around pipes that the water passes through on the way to the faucet. Heat pump water heaters facilitate heat exchanges with the outside air to warm their water, helped out by circulating refrigerant. They all perform the same task, but they use radically different means to do with. When it comes to installation and repairs, you should never trust a one–size–fits–all approach to them.

Tank Water Heaters

Most homes still use tank heaters because they’re eminently reliable and do their jobs without complaint. That can sometime lead to complacency, however, which means you should always have yours serviced at least once a year. If anything usual crops up, from strange noises to discolored water, pick up the phone and call Bud Matthews Services right away!

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters involve a more complicated installation process than tanked models, and because they have more complicated components, they tend to need repairs more often. But because they don’t need to heat an entire tank full of water, they use much less energy than tanked models, and installing one may be a perfect fit for your home.

Heat Pump Water Heaters

Head pump water heaters use the principles of air conditioning to heat your water: heating refrigerant and transferring the heat into the water supply. They require specialized technique to fix when repairs are needed, but like tankless systems, make up for it with inexpensive heating costs.

Water Heater Repair Needs to Take Place the Right Way

Repairing a water heater means taking a hard look at the problem and determining the best method of resolving it. A faulty valve or a leaky connector pipe is one thing, but if the trouble is more significant, you need a service that will not only fix it, but will make sure it stays fixed and that you can go forward without worrying that your water heater will encounter the same problem again a few months later. There’s no point in running all over town looking for the right service, when all you have to do is contact Bud Matthews Services. We can conduct any kind of repair your system may need and we’ll discuss your options with you beforehand so you know whether repairs are practical or if replacing the water heater might not be better.

Water Heater Services Begin and End with Maintenance

The variety of water heaters available means that you need a service with the knowledge and experience to handle them all. That means setting up an annual maintenance session that checks for potential problems before they get started. A plumbing technician can do wonders simply by tightening loose valves, draining sediment out of the tank, replacing the anode rod, and similar steps. By trusting a professional to do it, you can rest assured knowing that those little details are taken care of, and if further repairs are needed, they can spot those problems when they’re still small enough to be treated easily. Bud Matthews Services has the personnel to handle the issue properly. Give us a call today, and let us show you what a difference we can make!
