Electric Water Heaters

Experienced Water Heater Installers in Melbourne

When you are installing or replacing a water heater, one of your first decisions involves how you will heat the water—with gas or electricity. Electric water heaters offer some specific advantages—they are relatively easy to install, and they don’t pose some of the safety risks associated with gas. An electric water heater can be placed almost anywhere in your home or building, instead of near a central gas line. You don’t have to worry about pilot lights, igniters, or gas leaks, either. But the job must be done right. You want a licensed and insured plumbing contractor to complete the job. Public Service Plumbers can help.

At Public Service Plumbers, we have extensive experience handling the installation, servicing and repair of electric water heaters. We’ve provided high-level plumbing services to homeowners and businesses in the Melbourne FL for more than 30 years. Our plumbing techs are highly skilled and experienced— We’ll look at more than just your water heater—we’ll evaluate all your plumbing needs. No task is too big or too small.

Electric water heaters use a system of electrical resistance coils, a thermostat, dip tubes, and an inner tank with insulation surrounding it. When a tap is turned on, cold water enters the tank through a dip tube. The change in temperature causes a system of thermostats and coils to replacing cold water with hot water from the top of the tank to its bottom. After a tap is turned off, an electric water heater will continue to heat water until internal thermostats switch the current off.

Called GPS on Tuesday around 11 and arranged for this team to come and change my water heater which had stopped working. They also repaired a shower cartridge in the handle of my shower quickly and without mess all this was completed by 4 that afternoon.
