Your water heater is one of the most important appliances in your home. From washing hands to cleaning dishes to hot showers, the water heater functionality is the basis for a large portion of the comfort and cleanliness provided by your plumbing system.

Doyle Mechanical Systems can diagnose any problem, install a water heater into your home or business, or repair any issues you may be experiencing with your current water heater.

For many, the issues begin when their water heater stops working. There are often many signs that there is a problem with your water heater system, including:

  • Luke Warm Water or No Hot Water – This is one of the most obvious signs that it is time to contact a professional plumber. While a one-time occurrence may not spell trouble, consistent issues with hot water across multiple faucets could mean you need a new water heater.
  • Rusty Water – If your water suddenly starts running rusty, it is time to call Doyle Mechanical Systems immediately.
  • Metallic Smell and Taste – When a water heater is beginning to break down, it will have a metallic taste and smell due to flakes and grit that are combining with your water supply.
  • Leaks – Leaks are never a good thing when it comes to your water heater. If you see puddles around your water heater it may be a sign that your inner tank is nearing the end of its life. While slow leaks may not be a serious problem now, they can escalate into flooding of your home or business if the entire tank breaks.

These are all signs that your Charlotte water heater may need repair or replacement.

DMS can also provide water heater installation in the greater Charlotte area, as well as work with new home construction or dispose of a current water heater as needed.

Tankless water heaters uses 30 to 50 percent less energy than units with tanks, saving a typical family about $100 or more per year, depending on water usage. Tankless units (also called “on demand” units or an instant water heater) heat water only when you turn on the faucet. They usually operate on natural gas or propane. The main advantage is that they eliminate the extra cost of keeping 40 to 50 gallons of water hot in a storage tank, so you waste less energy. They also offer a continuous supply of hot water, which is ideal for filling a big hot tub or multiple showers. They’re more compact than a standard water heater and mount on a wall.
