How Does an Electric Water Heater Work?

Electric water heaters use a pair of resistance-based heating elements to bring the cool water from the supply up to temperature quickly and efficiently. A thermostat keeps track of the water temperature and turns the heating elements on and off as necessary to maintain your desired temperature. As your electric water heater ages, several things can happen to reduce its performance or cause it to fail:

  • The heating elements or thermostat can fail, preventing proper heating
  • Sediment can accumulate in the tank, reducing capacity and performance
  • Minerals or limescale can accumulate in the pipes, limiting water flow
  • Sediment or minerals can clog the heat exchanger on tankless water heaters
  • Leaks can form in the plumbing, valves, and fittings
  • Corrosion can eat away at the tank, causing leaks
  • The wiring can loosen, corrode, or degrade, causing a loss of power

For help finding the cause of your water heater problems in the Chester County area, contact our team.

When To Consider an Electric Water Heater Replacement

Electric water heaters will typically last eight to 12 years before replacement becomes necessary. If your water heater is less than a decade old and only has minor problems such as a faulty heating element or a leaking supply line, repair will be the best option. An electric water heater replacement will be the most cost-effective and reliable choice if your electric water heater:

  • Is over 10 years old
  • Needs frequent repairs
  • Has a major problem (leaking tank, a damaged heat exchanger, internal plumbing is clogged with limescale, etc.)

Contact us to learn if your water heater needs to be repaired or if a water heater replacement is the best course of action.

"I highly recommend Signature for HVAC service. The entires experience with Signature has been exceptional. The process was very customer focused starting from Scott McHale's engagement to organize the project to replace our old A/C, to an professional job John & Matt had done in installation, and Bob Seeger'r post installation service to troubleshoot the air flow damper, great job."

"Very confidant! Our technician Bob Seegar was great."

-Debbie Kaba

"Joe has been servicing our geothermal from Signature since the initial instalation. He is by far the best. When they call to schedule our bi yearly maintenance they know to send Joe. Not only is great at his job he has become a friend. Thanks Joe!!!"

"I would highly recommend Signature for all HVAC needs."

"Bob Seeger was our technician this time around. His level of professionalism was exceptional - it really stood out! Overall we are very happy that we switched to Signature several years ago!"

-Mark Kenney

"The Signature techs who come out to our house are always top-notch professionals. Very courteous, careful, and thorough. They always provide great explanations of the work that they are doing. I never feel like I am being pressured into unnecessary work or equipment replacement (like I used to feel with Service Experts). Today, Wade was the tech who came out. He was here exactly on time at 8am, and was done within an hour. Great work and another great service experience from Signature! Update 9/27/2016 - Today Bob Seeger came out to service our system in preparation for the winter. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and courtesy. Before he started, we sat down and he clearly explained what he would be doing as part of the maintenance, and we agreed upon the need to replace the filter on the main unit, and also to perform humidifier maintenance as part of the work. After the work was complete he made recommendations for overall system enhancements that we should consider. Signature really has top-notch people working for them, and I continue to be extremely happy that we switched over to them several years ago."

-Mark Kenney

"Bob Seeger was our person to service our furnace and water heater. He showed me a problem with our water heater that could have been a major problem. He was very honest, great and so efficient! He fixed the problem. I am kind of hoping he will be the one to work with in the spring."

-Debbie Kaba

"Always feel confident with the work performed by Danny from Signature."

-William Stolting

"Bob was quite knowledgeable of the type of geothermal system that I have in my house. Before completing the annual maintenance/tune-up that I had requested, he asked relevant questions about my geothermal system (e.g., date of installation, last service, temperature preference, electric usage, etc.). After inspecting and servicing my system, Bob explain service that my system needed now and recommendations that would benefit my system. He explained the options in a non-pressured approach, as well as, the benefit in joining Signature HVAC's service plan which was helpful. Throughout the service visit, Bob was courteous, friendly and respectful. My wife and I were very satisfied and we plan to continue to use Signature HVAC in the future."

-John Schmitt

"Bob did an excellent job. He showed up on time, was courteous, and respectful. I recommend using Bob S from Signature Heating and Air-conditioning."

-Dennis Carlson

"Great service as always. Always prompt and knowledgeable."

-Adam Lusk

"Bob was very professional and informative on the heating & air condition job at my house. He is a very nice and caring person! Thank you!"

-Colleen Esgro

"Your whole team is outstanding."

-John price

"Daniel Cross (Signature) completed a thorough and quick fall service on my heating systems. What I liked best about Danny is that he spoke to me as a knowledgeable customer rather than treating me like a clueless homeowner. So refreshing to be treated with respect by an HVAC provider! He had an opportunity to "upsell" me on a service, but was honest and told me that it wasn't valuable in my situation. I would certainly trust him to service my equipment again, and would definitely recommend him to a friend."

-Susan Wentz

"Thanks again for walking me through the process and pointing out what was going on in my system. Mold be gone! Professional and friendly service. Thanks for your help."

-Mia Bosna

"Travis is another courteous, fine professional working for you!"

-John price

"We have a by-annual cleaning/tune-up contract with Signature for care and maintenance of our heater/air conditioning units. We have found this company to be excellent in their service and their very knowledgeable , friendly technicians. We highly recommend ."

-Ric DeAngelis

"We are very pleased with Signature and their very knowledgeable Technicians. We will be continuing our By-Annual service/tune-up with them...."

-Ric DeAngelis

"I have used Signature for about 10 years now. They provide excellent service. Bob Seeger was my most recent technician and he was on time, polite, informative, and technically proficient. I highly recommend signature for your HVAC needs. I have geothermal, and they are excellent at this technology."

-Charlie Phillips

"Mike B came out for the biannual check of the upstairs system--we had replaced the downstairs system in June---we are very satisfied. Mike was thorough, very professional, answered all my (sometimes inane) questions and kept the house clean. Good job Mike and thanks."
