Common Commercial Water Heater Problems in San Diego
If you are a business owner, whether you own an apartment complex, a restaurant, or any kind of public operation, your customers need readily available hot water. Even if your commercial hot water heater fails for a short amount of time, clients/tenants are inconvenienced. Regular service maintenance from a commercial San Diego plumbing expert for your water heater avoids bad Yelp and Google reviews submitted by unhappy customers.
Too many business owners thinking a water heater or boiler should just work consistently with no maintenance. The truth is that like a car, the commercial water heater needs new oil, new belts and parts on a regular basis. If your boiler or water heater is acting up, rest assured you are not alone. Review these typical commercial water heater water heater problems to get an idea of what is going on and what it will take to repair it.
Hot water is intermittent: This issue is usually corrected with a simple part swap. Possible reasons for intermittent hot water may be a buildup of sentiment, a dirty burner, a clogged hot water line, a blown-out pilot light, or perhaps something as simple as a broken thermostat.
Hot water has a rusty appearance: This usually indicates that your commercial hot water heater is indeed starting to rust. In this case, the unit must be replaced. Least expensive scenario: the rusty color may indicate a buildup of minerals in your tank, in which case it just needs flushed.
Higher than normal water bills: This can indicate a leak in your pipes, which will only continue to cost you extra money, and potentially cause water damage/mold issues if not corrected immediately.
You commercial hot water unit is 10-15 years old: If your unit has never been maintained (which we find common!), it will most likely be operating at about 50% less efficiency even if it is ten years old. Also, did you know that as of April 16, 2015, non-energy efficient commercial hot water units will no longer be manufactured? These new energy-efficient guidelines mandated by the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act may mean a higher installation cost for you, but if you replace your older unit sooner than later, you may still be able to locate the older, lower cost replacement models while they are still available. Once those older models are gone, they are gone for good.
