Water Heaters

blaack and white water heater Standard water heaters in the United States can be powered by electricity, natural gas, propane, heating oil, or solar energy. Stand-up water heaters with a hot water tank that is kept full of optimally heated water for showering and cleaning are the most popular, though tank less water heaters can be found in some parts of the country. Here in Oregon City, since we experience four seasons and extreme temperatures in both directions, the hot water tank is the most sensible set-up for homeowners. 

Our Oregon City plumbing technicians service all brands of water heaters, regardless of where the power supply comes from. In the case of propane, gas, and oil powered water heaters there are non-water pipes involved which need to be installed by a plumber. If the power source to these hot water heaters is affected in any way, do not attempt to fix the problem yourself. Burnable fuels are extremely dangerous when tampered with by a non-professional. 

In the event of your electric hot water heater or solar powered hot water heater breaking down we are still capable of fixing the problem ninety-nine percent of the time, with the exception being a problem with the household power supply. If your electrical system is damaged or malfunctioning you will need to contact an electrician to fix it. After that, if your hot water heater is still not working properly, we will be happy to send over one of our Oregon City plumbers to assist you.
