Why Is My Water Heater So Loud?

Monday, March 25th, 2019

sunny-plumber-doorwayWhen you run an appliance like a water heater, you probably expect a bit of operational noise to come with it. There is a big difference between normal, minimal operational noise and loud, alarming noises, though. Because a water heater is not likely to be installed right in your living space the way that, say,  a dishwasher may be, its sounds may not be quite as obvious. However, there are some sounds you should definitely watch (or listen!) out for.

A water heater may not operate silently, but you cannot afford to ignore those unusual sounds that can pop up from time to time.  They may indicate the need for professional water heater repair in Henderson.

We can get your system back on track promptly.

Water Heater FAQ: What’s “Standby Energy Loss”?

Monday, February 11th, 2019

sunny-techniciansHeating water for showering, cleaning up around the house, doing laundry, etc., is not exactly an “optional” task or a luxury. Most homeowners would define the practice more as a necessity or an expectation in their homes. That’s what makes the water heater in your residence such a vitally important appliance. Just because you need the hot water that your water heater puts out, however, doesn’t mean that you should accept a very high price tag attached to it.

You should also be aware of standby energy loss—what it is, what causes it, and what you can do to limit its occurrence. Read on, and let us know what questions you have.
