Regardless of the season, hot water is an essential element of every home all year round. It helps wash our clothes and heat our homes, among other things. So a water heater in good condition is really something you can’t afford to go without. A job well done can result in a long-lasting water heater, while precise repairs will help expand its lifespan even further. This is what we offer as part of our quality-assured heating service.

Gas or electric costs and benefits

Standard water heaters are typically powered by gas or electricity, dependent on the type of energy you already use, or whichever you choose if you have access to both. There are key factors to consider in making your choice. A gas water heater may cost more to purchase upfront, but it can be cheaper to operate and may end up cheaper over the course of a typical year. Electric water heaters could be considered more efficient though, as they use all their energy in converting hot water, as well as more environmentally friendly. This is ultimately a question based on your own priorities.

Consider the variables

The size and layout of your home could also determine where you might want to install your water heater. Bear in mind it is more efficient when located near the rooms and appliances that will be using it most, i.e. your kitchen, laundry room or bathroom. This is because your water will be immediately hot when needed and you’ll use less water overall if it needs to travel a smaller distance to its destination.

Horizontal or vertical?

As part of your decision on where to put your water heater, you may want to consider whether a wall mounted or floor standing option works best for your needs. Remember you’ll need to factor in 50 centimeters or more of free space surrounding the heater – this helps make our installation and maintenance work much easier, while giving you the necessary space to check it yourself if it starts causing unforeseen issues.


Don’t take chances when it comes to repairs

It’s advised not to neglect your heater; check on it regularly to see if any reparation work may be required. Considering the vital part a water heater plays in every home, it’s essential that repairs are done to a high professional standard. Trying to repair it yourself may be tempting but can have its shortfalls – if something goes wrong, you won’t have anyone to blame and it could end up costing even more to fix.

Rely on us 24/7

No1PHD are committed not only to installing water heaters to the highest standard but also maintaining them, ensuring they last as long as possible in your home. We have a 24-hour emergency heating service that always stands ready to respond to your heating needs. Even if we didn’t install your current water heater, our expert team have vast experience across the board and will be able to answer any of your heating-related questions.

Know the signs of a declining water heater

When kept in good condition, water heaters can function effectively for up to 12 years. Our experienced team can help with quality repairs, maintaining your water heater so that it gets to that point. But as it gets nearer that time, you’ll want to know the signs that a replacement may be needed. Here are some things to look out for:

  • Rusty water is a key sign that your heater is rusted on the inside and likely isn’t repairable
  • Lack of hot water – this can mean sediment has built up over time, taking up space and separating water from heat sources
  • Rumbling or banging probably doesn’t mean your house is haunted, just that your old creaky heater is approaching the end of its life
  • Leaking water is a key sign that slight fractures have formed after years of heat expansion
  • If in doubt, check its serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker, which will tell you its age – if it’s close to or over 10 years old you should look out for the issues outlined above

Whether you’re looking for a trustworthy professional to keep your water heater in good shape or are in need of a brand new installation, No1PHD will work with you to ensure the best service tailored to your needs. Call us today on 08006906777 for immediate response.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
