I had an excellent experience with PDM Plumbing, Heating, Cooling. I most recently used them for the first time, where they put a water heater in so that I could have hot water again. I would say that the pricing was really good for the quality that I received. I found them on the Internet and they did a great job, so I had a very nice first impression with the company. I would absolutely keep using them in the future. I would also recommend them to future customers because they can yield excellent results." – David H. in Joliet, IL

What is a thermal expansion tank and how it can help.

Have you noticed a continuous dripping of a temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve or dripping faucets and leaking toilet tank fill valves, even noisy water hammer in the pipes? The cause can be thermal expansion of heated water. A buildup of unusually high water pressure can create a number of annoying and potentially dangerous problems.

When dangerous water pressures build up in a water heater, internal parts may fail such as the internal flues, fittings or water connections. If a flue way collapses it can lead to the potential release of toxic gases. Thermal expansion can even lead to a bulging or exploding hot water heater tank and may void the manufacturer’s warranty.

If you noticed any of these symptoms, tell us and we can install a small expansion tank above your water heater to relieve unsafe water pressure build-up. It's simple and easy.

How do you know if you need a new water heater?

There are a few signs to watch out for that may indicate you need a new water heater:

  • The tank itself is leaking - This is common over time as heating and cooling will expand and contract the tank. Unfortunately when this happens and the tank develops a leak, a repair is typically not an effective solution.
  • The water heater is making unusual sounds - A loud clanking or drumming sound means that sediment has built up in the tank and has hardened.
  • Water looks rusty - If the pipes have rusted internally, it will mean a water heater replacement.
  • The unit is older - Standard tank storage hot water heaters are built to last about 8 - 12 years. A good rule of thumb is to not repair units over 10 years old so you are not wasting money on an appliance that will not last much longer.
How long is a water heater supposed to last?

Experts estimate that standard tank hot water heaters will last between 8 - 12 years, on average. Tankless water heaters typically last twice as long, about 20 years.

Why is the water in my home not hot enough?

There could be a number of reasons why the water coming from the hot water heater is just not feeling hot enough:

  • Temperature is set too low - If the water heater is not set to a high enough temperature, it will never feel hot enough. Be careful not to set the temperature too high, however.
  • Dip tube is not working - You can also check the dip tube to see if it has broken or fallen off. If this is the case, incoming cold water will be drawn out through the hot water outlet without being heated first.
  • Burner is clogged on gas heater - Dirt can build up on the burner which will impact its heating abilities.
  • Sediment buildup - If there is too much sediment that has built up on the bottom of the tank, the unit could take longer to recover its hot water supply.

If your hot water heater is just not producing enough hot water, we can help. Contact PDM Plumbing, Heating & Cooling today to learn more or to schedule a service!
