Electric Water Heater Replacement
How electric water heaters work
Cold water enters the bottom of the tank through a dip tube inside the tank much like a Gas Water Heater. Hot water is drawn off of the top of the tank through the hot water line. The element in the water heater is basically an electric rod that heats up red hot to heat the water; most electric hot water heaters have two elements and alternate when heating.
Water Heater Maintenance Makes a Difference
Keep your electric water heater in good operating condition by having it flushed and the anode rod inspected annually as the manufacture recommends.
We offer a lifetime warranty on the water heaters we install and the only way we can do that is to flush it once a year and replace the anode rod when needed. We have water heaters on service agreements that have lasted over 30 years. Most hot water heaters only last a year or two after the warranty
