Water heaters are like the workhorses of our plumbing systems. We use them constantly without even considering their existence. Usually the term “out of sight, out of mind” applies perfectly to them; however, when one stops working you are painfully aware of the issue.
If you have a problem with a water heater and you would like to have it repaired contact Plumbers 911 at (816) 326-8643 today and we will send a certified technician to your home to review the appliance and give you a reliable estimate as to the cost to have it fixed.
Have a Missouri Professional Inspect Your Water Heater
There are a number of types of water heaters, each with its own peculiarities and unique technological aspects. The types of water heater include:
- Conventional heaters. A conventional water heater keeps water in a tank where it is heated and stored for use. When you turn on the “hot” water faucet water flows from the tank out of the faucet; as this occurs more water flows into the heater’s tank where it is heated and stored. Generally speaking a conventional water heater will last for 10-15 years; with careful maintenance you can extend its life as well as increase its efficiency.
- Tankless heaters. A tankless water heater is more efficient than a conventional one because a tankless heater only heats water as it is needed, whereas a conventional heater maintains a full tank of hot water. Because it does not have a tank, a tankless heater takes up less space than a conventional one. It may, however, require larger gas lines going into the heating element, and it might also require special venting to safely remove the fumes put off by the burning gas it uses. Because of this it is essential that you only allow a licensed Missouri technician to work on a tankless heater; a failure to properly vent these gases can be fatal!
- Hybrid heat pump heater. Using less energy than other options, a hybrid heat pump water heater will pull heat from the air and use it to help heat the water. It does use a tank and can often improve efficiency by more than 50%.
As you can see, a water heater is not a simple piece of machinery to work on. Further, due to the use of gas, proper venting is a must when repairing or replacing a water heater. Failure to properly vent this appliance can result in the release of dangerous gases into your home, resulting in serious injury or even death to the occupants. For this reason, any time you want to have repairs performed on your hot water heater, it is important that you insist on only allowing a licensed professional perform the work!
At Plumbers 911 we only dispatch licensed technicians to inspect and, if possible repair your hot water units. You never have to be concerned that the person working on your water heater is anything less than supremely qualified to perform the work in which he or she is engaging.

Other Reasons to Use a Certified Missouri Professional

In short, the requirement of a license for someone to be considered a professional plumbing technician is there for the protection of the consumer (that’s you).
