Nothing Beats a Cold Shower (Except a Warm one)
Sub-zero degree plunge pools may be all the rage these days with metaphysical and motivational gurus like Tony Robbins touting the health benefits, but most of us enjoy the comfort of a nice warm shower in the morning over anything else.
In fact, the hassle factor of being out of hot water ranks right up there with getting a flat tire or finding out your dog ate your homework. Nothing makes you want to crawl back in bed more than the sudden unexpected jolt you get when ice cold water replaces the steam you expected.
Should you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being out of hot water, in short supply of warm water, or simply experiencing unpredictable water temperatures during your morning shower there is a quick solution.
Reach out to AJAX as soon as possible at 210-434-2303 and we can often steer you in the right direction over the phone—whether it be to get your water heater serviced by a licensed plumber or in some cases replace the unit.
We may recommend your existing water heater unit be inspected for simple fixes that only experienced professional plumbers know how to troubleshoot. Oftentimes you can avoid a new water heater installation by throughly cleaning the water heater and removing build up called "scales." Other times the unit may just need the water heater temperature gauge adjusted.
Another option is to add an additional water heater to the home depending on the square footage of your home, the number of restrooms, and the size of your family. The longevity of both units will be increased because undo stress won't be put on a single unit that perhaps should have been a larger sized unit from the start. Afterall, many homes have one or two 50 gallon water heaters even though one 40 gallon water heater is the standard for most homes.
If your water heater is over 10 years old (or close) you may want to avoid repeated service charges, mounting maintenance costs, and just "bite the bullet" with a replacement water heater unit and have a water heater installer fix your family up once and for all.
Whoever said, "nothing beat a cold shower," wasn't being completely truthful in our book.
