Is Your Water Heater on Its Way Out?

Posted by HTP on Feb 16, 2017 4:00:00 PM

There are few things worse than hopping into what you think will be a relaxing, hot shower but instead being immersed with water temperatures that are colder than the weather in the middle of January.  It’s one unpleasant way to realize – “Ah, yes, a broken water heater”.

HTP knows, typically, that if you’ve experienced this first hand, you want to make sure you never have to again and we want to help! Below are just a few ways to detect that it’s time to get rid of that old water heater BEFORE you learn the hard (cold) way.

 

That doesn’t sound right …

Water tanks should be seen and not heard. If you happen to hear any kind of rumbling that may sound like thunder, it’s your indicator your water heater is starting to go. The reason for any noise would be the sediment build up that has hardened in your tank and is banging against the heater.  Usually, like a domino effect, leaking will come shortly after you hear the noises.  It would be best to address the noise as soon as you hear them to avoid any further damage or loss of hot water.

Shouldn’t that water be inside the tank? …

Pooling is NEVER a good sign when it comes to water tanks. If you ever notice moisture or pooling around the tank it is definitely time to get it replaced. Tanks tend to get wear and tear over time and as the metal heats it expands and cracks causing leakage and pooling.

Water Color – and we don’t mean the paint …

Another sign of a water tank being on its way out is the color of the water. If you are seeing a red tint to your water that usually means rust is beginning to form inside the tank. After rust comes leaking and a new water heater.

Judge a book by its cover …

In the case of your water heater, how it looks on the outside matters. Check for rust and corrosion every now and then and pay special attention to any rust that may be forming around the temperature and pressure relief valves, or near the inlet and outlet connections.

What Happens in Vegas ...

Posted by HTP on Feb 10, 2017 5:00:00 PM

Stays in Vegas ... unless of course you're showcasing new products all while being able to discuss your current units.

HTP recently was an exhibitor at the 2017 AHR Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada and brought along 2 of our newest products: The Link, a commercial boiler that can reach up to 4 million BTU, and The Rack system which allows for cascading of boilers &  heaters up to 8 units at a time!

The AHR Expo is the worlds largest HVACR Marketplace and the crowd grew to about 60,000 plus. HTP was proud to represent the water heating and boiler category and we had a blast educating HVACR professionals about our existing products as well as our brand new units.

Take a look at just a few of the photos of our booth below

All Things Tankless

Posted by HTP on Jan 31, 2017 2:30:00 PM

There is a lot that goes into choosing the perfect water heater for your needs, and there are many options to choose from. Do you go gas or electric? Tank or tankless? We want to highlight some of the features of our Tankless line of water heaters to reference during your research.

A Tankless heater is a condensed version of a traditional water heater. A heater with a tank stores the hot water to be used again, while a tankless runs the water through a coil which heats up the water to be used immediately. The tankless water heaters provide an endless stream of hot water in a compact space.  A major benefit to using a tankless water heater is that it doesn’t produce the energy losses associated with tank type water heaters. The result is increased efficiency and cost savings.

HTP carries a line of Tankless Water Heaters, The Hydra Smart. For homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, demand water heaters can be 24%–34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters. They can be 8%–14% more energy efficient for homes that use a lot of hot water -- around 86 gallons per day. You can achieve even greater energy savings of 27%–50% if you install a demand water heater at each hot water outlet. ENERGY STAR® estimates that a typical family can save $100 or more per year with an ENERGY STAR qualified tankless water heater. (Energy.gov)

Check out our Hydra Smart Tankless Water Heaters here to see if its a right fit for your needs!

Benefits of a Gas Water Heater

Posted by HTP on Jan 23, 2017 2:00:00 PM

When it comes to water heaters we at HTP understand you have many different options. While we think you would be impressed with all of our water heaters, we'd like to highlight a few benefits of our Gas water heaters.

Gas Water Heaters such as our Phoenix Series, are highly efficient.  A crucial factor that plays into our water heater’s efficiency is the packed foam on the interior of the tank. Older gas water heaters weren't typically made with this feature and in turn had a lower efficiency.  Did you know the Phoenix is up to 96% efficient with a 5 to 1 turn down? It is also Energy Star Certified! We made sure to manufacture our tanks with super durable stainless steel materials to last longer and provide optimum heat.

We also know how important it is to have hot water for everyone in the house. Another pro of having a gas water heater is the recovery rate, or time in which it takes to reheat a tank of water after use.
