Water Heater Repair, Installation, and Replacement Services in Columbia, MO, and Nearby Areas

A water heater is a device that is common throughout most homes in both Columbia, Missouri, as well as the United States as a whole. Commonly, it is a cylindrical tub that contains water, as well as various other valves and pipes that work in unison to heat your water safely and efficiently so that it can be distributed through your house to provide hot water for your shower, dishes, cooking, etc.

Typical Signs You Need a Water Heater Inspection

Common signs that your water heater needs an inspection are water heater leaks. If your water heater is leaking, you should call or contact the professional plumbers at Brian Wear Plumbing immediately to ensure your water heater gets fixed properly.

A sign that your water heater may need maintenance soon is a recurring “popping” noise in your water heater. If you are hearing a water heater popping noise be sure to contact the professional plumbers at Brian Wear Plumbing to schedule a professional plumbing inspection.

What Are the 3 Main Types of Water Heaters?

Water heater’s come in all shapes and sizes, but can be boiled down to three main types.

  • Tank
  • Tankless
  • Hybrid

Traditional Storage Tank Water Heaters

The traditional water heater is common for most residential and commercial buildings, a traditional tank water heater is a rather large cylindrical tank that utilizes heat rising to heat the water. Once an electric heating element or a burner raises the water's temperature, the heated water rises and is sent through a tube to the requested destination. Traditional storage tank water heaters can be electric or gas powered.

We recommend traditional storage tank water heater systems because of their reliable performance as evidenced by their ever-growing popularity.

Tankless Water Heaters

The tankless water heater is growing in popularity every day in the United States. Common in other parts of the world such as Europe, the tankless water heater is designed to function on an as-needed basis rather than storing a large container of water and constantly heating it. Tankless water heater’s raise the temperature of the water when requested then turns off once the action has been completed. Though energy efficient, it is common for larger households to require more than one unit, which can raise costs considerably.

Hybrid and Heat Pump Water Heaters

Hybrid water heaters are similar to traditional storage tank water heaters, except they also use a heat pump to raise the water’s temperature. Through the heat pump and combination of a traditional storage tank water heater’s design, the hybrid and heat pump water heaters boast energy efficiency while keeping hot water available at all times.
