Leaking Water Heater in Reading, PA

Determine correct size water heater for your needs

The unit had been leaking for about a week, but the customer still had hot water. She had an 82-gallon unit – it was oversized because she had a Jacuzzi tub in a bathroom. When we arrived we found that the tank had corroded to the point that it needed to be replaced.

If you have to get a new water heater, it is very important that you make sure the replacement is the correct size for your needs. Have a professional come to your home and help you make the right decision.

It may very well have been a long time since you had to buy a new water heater, and you may have undergone several significant changes in your home. For example, your children may have moved out and you’ll be better off buying a smaller tank. Or, you could have added children to your family (or even added a Jacuzzi in your bathroom) and the same size of tank will not be sufficient to make sure you have plenty of hot water.

Let an Essig Plumbing and Cooling professional help you choose the right size of water heater for your needs. Call us today.
