GS Plumbing, a plumbing contractor serving Greenville and the surrounding areas, has important information about how water heaters can be affected by the cold during the winter months. Homeowners can prevent costly repairs or having to purchase brand new water heaters by adding an expansion tank to their water heaters.
Water heaters in winter are subject to breaking due to the cold water entering the tanks. The lining of the tanks are stressed from having the cold water hitting the warm tank. Thermal pressure is then created and has no outlet. This is why expansion tanks are important to have. They allow space for the increased water expansion. Without an expansion tank, the water heater itself acts as the expansion tank and is more likely to leak or break.
Homeowners can greatly extend the life of a water heater by installing an expansion system. An expansion tank will reduce the stress put on a water heater over the winter months, which will extend the life of the heater overall, and ultimately save them money from possible water damage. GS Plumbing can advise homeowners on the best expansion tank options, and with installation. For more information visit their website or call (864)326-4318.
