water-heater-repairWater heaters, particularly traditional tank water heaters, are a staple of most homes in the area, and are absolutely vital to keeping your home running. Hot water is essential to cooking and cleaning, especially in the winter when the weather is cold and you need the water heater to do its job. Tank water heaters are usually very quiet, and they typically are placed in quiet out-of-the-way spots in your home, such as the basement.
