We have worked with Capps Plumbing for the past nine years. When our old water heater failed they installed a new one that has performed extremely well. Any maintenance or service issues are handled with one call. Everyone that has come to our home has been very professional and knowledgeable. It’s nice to know you can make one call and receive same day service. We are a customer for life!

Capps has been our go-to for plumbing needs for the past year; they have always been great! Super quick response time and very efficient! We had Mike and Nick out at our house yesterday and they were wonderful. They figured out what was going on and solved our problem. I definitely recommend this company and will be using them in the future.

We just moved in to our new house and had a plumbing issue right away. Capps came highly recommended and they did not disappoint! We were able to schedule an appointment for the next day, everyone we spoke to was extremely nice and professional, and the plumbers were on time, explained everything, and got the problem resolved right away. We will certainly call them for any future needs and would recommend them to anyone!

I have used Capp’s Plumbing multiple times for various reasons. Sump pump, water heater, toilet installation and broken pipes. They call when on their way and have always been on time. Their employees are knowledgeable, courteous, honest and reasonable. I’ve used other plumbers before in the area and they don’t compare to the caring service Capps provides. Great plumbers!!

Choosing the Right Water Heater for Your Deer Park Home

If you’re interested in choosing a different type of water heater rather than a conventional gas water heater, now it’s easier than ever before! Several homes in Deer Park feature standard gas tank water heaters, but there are so many different choices available today! Listed below are some of the different types of water heater systems available so you can make an informed choice of which selection will be the best for your home:

Tankless Water Heater:  A tankless water heater goes directly into your water line. This option definitely saves space. Bear in mind that tankless water heaters will require service every 5 years and heat your water regardless of what temperature it is.

Electric Water Heater: These units operated similarly to gas water heaters but they’re powered by electricity. Depending on size of the tank, this choice can be very affordable, practical and save you money on your monthly energy costs.

Solar Water Heaters: As the name implies, these systems use the power of the sun to heat your water.

Tankless Coil and Indirect Water Heaters:  Both of these water heaters go directly into your home’s heating system in order to heat the water.

Heat Pump Water Heaters:  This system transfers heat from one area to another and generates heat directly for the water.

There are many factors that can impact your decision when choosing which water heater will be the best option for your home in Deer Park:

Size: What tank size will be needed for your home? A bigger tank doesn’t mean that it’s better and you could be wasting money by opting for something that’s larger than necessary. Conversely, a unit that’s too small will be inadequate and won’t be able to keep up with the demand for hot water. The size of the tank is also based on amount space that’s been allocated for installation.

Energy Efficiency:  You can save on your monthly energy costs with a new water heater. Energy efficient models will heat your water and do so using less energy saving you money.

Costs:  Just as with other projects around the house, the main objective is getting your home what it needs as economically as possible.  Capps Plumbing offers discounts on water heater options.

Signs Your Need To Replace Or Repair Your Water Heater

Typically, a water heater lasts approximately 8-12 years.  If your water heater is over and above that 12 year marker, it’s time to replace it before it inevitably breaks down.  Water heaters in Deer Park, Illinois come in three options: gas water heaters, electric water heaters, and tankless water heaters.  In addition to the age of your water heater, below are some other common warning signs that may indicate that it’s time to replace your water heater:

  1. The water has a rusty color instead of clarity when it’s running.
  2. The water appears muddy or sandy. This could mean there’s build up at the bottom of the tank
  3. If you’re noticing a metallic taste or odor in the water when drinking it, this could indicate that your tank is breaking down. Small pieces of metal are literally flaking off and ending up in your water.
  4. The water will get warmer but doesn’t really get hot. Simple solutions first, check that your thermostat is set between 120 and 140 degrees. If the thermostat is set at the proper range but the water still isn’t getting hot, contact Capps.
  5. If you’re hearing loud and unusual noises coming from your water heater, contact Capps.
  6. The numbers of times and the space of time between when repairs are done to your water heater may indicate that your water heater is on the verge of breaking down.  Capps Plumbing will always give you expert and honest advice on whether it would be more financially prudent to repair your water heater and get more time out of it or replace the water heater altogether.
  7. If you are seeing water leaks beginning to pool around the bottom of your water heater, don’t hesitate to take immediate action. This indicates that your water heater is breaking down and it will need to be replaced as soon as possible. Even if the leak is small, these cracks can rupture and cause massive water damage in your home.  If you spot water around your water heater, don’t wait. Call Capps and get the unit replaced immediately to avoid a mess and possible water damage.
