Is Insulation Really Essential for Water Heaters?
At A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, we believe insulation is essential for water heaters. It helps reduce your unit’s heat loss, leading to several advantages, from energy savings to reduced wear and tear. Here are ways it can benefit you and your water heater installation in the long run:
Protects the Water Heater
Insulation helps protect your water heater from damage. If it is installed in the garage or outdoor closet, where the external temperature is notably different, it may exert more effort than needed to deliver hot water. This can lead to premature water heater repair in Carlsbad, CA. Insulation can help prolong the lifespan of your water heater and keep it in good working order for longer.
Improves Hot Water Availability
Insulation helps sustain a higher water temperature, which means you don’t need to wait as long for hot water to come out of your taps. This can be particularly useful in large households where multiple people may be taking showers or doing laundry simultaneously. In turn, it keeps your hot water heater from overworking.
Minimizes Standby Heat Loss
Heat loss is the heat that escapes from the tank when it is not in use. This can account for as much as 20% to 25% of your energy consumption. When you get water heater services to add insulation, you can significantly minimize this loss, translating into more energy efficiency and cost savings.
Reduces Energy Costs
Insulation can also help to cut down energy costs. Because an insulated tankless water heater loses less heat, it doesn’t need to work as hard to keep the water warm. This means it uses less energy, saving you money on your utility bills in the long run. It also makes the heater more environmentally friendly.
At A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, we provide a wide range of water heater solutions, including repair, installation, and maintenance. If you need help adding insulation to your unit, we have you covered. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
