Consider A New Approach To Purchasing A Water Heater

 At Big B's Plumbing, we're your premier Escondido water heater repair and installation company. It never fails when you least expect it; the water heater goes kaput. It sat in the corner of your garage for the past thirteen years and never had a problem. We've heard that a thousand times before. Most of the time, it will stop without warning. That said, it's still one of the more reliable appliances in our home. Most people run down to their local home improvement center, find the cheapest water heater in stock, and buy it without ever giving it a second thought. Consider a new approach to purchasing a water heater. Since it's an appliance that will be with you for the next ten to fifteen years, why not take a couple of extra steps and get the one you want and need without any regrets? 

Take The Guesswork Out Of Selecting The Right Size Water Heater

The fact is water heaters, like so many other products, have seen significant jumps in technology. For example, an Energy Star-labeled water heater can save 8% more energy than a standard model and up to 30% on water heaters produced ten years ago. There are other features that a Big B's Plumbing technician can compare when making a purchase. Consulting your technician can also take the guesswork out of selecting the right size water heater. Did you know that with some models, you can purchase a 40-gallon water heater for almost as much as a 50-gallon? Make sure you buy a model that matches the size of your family. Often, a homeowner will have a 70-gallon jacuzzi bathtub and install a 40-gal water heater without understanding that they don't go together.

Basic Ideas When Sizing For Your Water Heater

30-gallon water heater - A family of 1-2

40-gallon water heater - A family of 2-3

40-50 gallon water heater - A family of 3-4

50-80 gallon water heater- A family of 5 or more

Most Water Heaters Only Need Repairing, Not Replacing

When your water heater breaks down, maybe you can just repair it. While the latest models can significantly save a homeowner on energy costs, repairing your current heater may be more practical, especially if it's less than eight years old. Big B's Plumbing has a highly-skilled plumbing expert who will fix your heater when you don't need a replacement. Sometimes, a homeowner will want their water heater replaced with the latest version, even if repairing it is an option because of its age.

Your Water Heater Is Part Of Our Quality Of Life

Have you ever stopped to think about how much your water heater impacts our quality of life? For example, bathing, shaving, washing clothes, and washing dishes all use hot water. Whether you need your water heater repaired or replaced, having it go down can throw us for a loop. At Big B's Plumbing, we're your premier Escondido water heater repair and installation company.

Water Heater Repair, Or Water Heater Replacement?

Most experts state that your water heater will last 10 to 15 years. You could expect more from your water heater if you provide annual maintenance, but according to, your natural gas water heater will only have a 10-year life expectancy. That number is important when evaluating whether to repair or replace your existing water heater. If repairs are costly and your water heater is near its life expectancy, installing a new energy-efficient water heater is best.

The 50% Rule

One rule that some homeowners practice on fixtures and appliances is the 50% rule. If the water heater repair costs more than 50% of what it costs to replace it, replace it rather than repair it. But in most cases, it all goes back to the age of your water heater. Some water heater repairs, such as a rusted or leaking storage tank, should only be replaced.

Replace It With An Energy-Efficient Model

Your heater will make up 14% of your total energy bill; ensuring it runs efficiently will save energy costs. However, an inefficient running water heater will take longer for water to heat, causing it to use more energy. In this instance, replacing it with an energy-efficient model may be wise. Some of the basic fixes your plumbing technician will make to your water heater are replacing a heating element, fixing a thermostat, repairing a faulty T&P valve, and replacing the anode rod.

Maintenance Will Have Your Water Heater Working At Its Best

Most homeowners don't know that annual maintenance completed on your water heater will extend its life expectancy. Some manufacturers would only honor the warranty if it were properly maintained. California is notorious for hard water, which will wreak havoc on our heaters. When the water heats, the minerals solidify, turning into limescale buildup. The limescale ends up on the bottom of the tank causing the water heater to work harder. 

A limescale layer between the burners and the bottom of the tank makes it more difficult for the tank to heat. Reduced efficiency means increased energy costs. Draining your storage tank annually of limescale and changing your anode rod every five years will have your water heater performing at its best. Have your water heater working top-notch; call your premier Escondido water heater repair and installation company, Big B's Plumbing.

9-Months Interest-Free, Same As Cash 

When the heater breaks down, the first thing that comes to mind is we just didn't make room for it in our budget. If a water heater isn't in the budget, perhaps you should consider our 9-month interest-free, the same as cash financing on approved credit. We try to leave no stone unturned when it comes to customer care. Maybe you want to upgrade to a tankless water heater. We also have 5-year financing available starting as low as 8.99%. Whatever the case, rest assured Big B's Plumbing will give you the value and service you deserve.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
