Don’t Ignore a Kettling Water Heater

Monday, August 17th, 2020

When you use hot water in your house, your water heater is going to make some noise. That part is normal. However, there are certainly noises that your water heater isn’t meant to make. If you notice that your water heater is struggling a little bit lately, it may be time to listen to what it is saying.

One strange noise that water heaters in Stony Point, NY certainly shouldn’t make is a sound called “kettling.” If you go to check on your water heater and notice that it sounds like your tea kettle is boiling, you have a water heater that needs repairs.

Spring is Here: Time to Check Your Water Heater

Monday, May 1st, 2017


Your water heater is one of the most important components in your home, providing regular hot water for cooking, cleaning and bathing. Traditional tank water heaters are by far the most common, because they do their job efficiently and without fuss. Most of them sit tucked away in little-used parts of the home such as the basement or the garage, and they do their jobs very quietly. That makes it very difficult to spot problems and when the signs of difficulty appear, it’s often far too late to make repairs: replacement may be necessary.

Is It Time for a New Water Heater?

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Water heaters get put to the test during our Ramsey, NJ winters: fighting cold temperatures in parts of the home that don’t usually get a lot of heat and undergoing significant strain in the process. If your water heater’s warranty has expired, and you don’t think it will work effectively for another winter, now is the perfect time to schedule a replacement. (It gives you time to make the change at a date of your choosing, instead of during the winter when the operation becomes much more difficult.) But how can you spot the signs that you need a new water heater?

Monday, August 1st, 2016

Your water heater is an important part of your home, and the last thing you want to see is a problem with it. Unfortunately, because most of them are tucked in out of the way in our Nanuet, NY homes, we usually don’t notice a problem until it’s too late. By then, repair might not even be an option. You may be forced to replace the unit instead.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

Monday, May 30th, 2016

New City, NY has all kinds of residences, and most of them depend on traditional tank water heaters to do their jobs. There’s no mystery as to why: they’re reliable and durable, and as long as you keep them serviced or maintained, they should work for you for many years. But they’re not the only systems out there, and some can actually do a better job for your particular home. Consider tankless water heaters, for instance, which warm the water instantly as it passes through the pipes instead of heating a reservoir of water for eventual use. They can cost more to install and their small size usually means you’ll need multiple units to cover larger houses. In exchange, however, they offer a number of tangible benefits.

Water Heater FAQ: How Does Solar Water Heating Work?

Monday, March 18th, 2013

Do you have questions about solar water heating in New City, NY? Many customers call us to ask about whether it is the best solution for their homes, but it’s also important to know how they work to help you decide on a new water heater for your home. While solar water heaters are not for every situation, they are some of the most efficient water heaters available today, and in the right situation, they can provide you with a lot of energy savings.

It is a good idea to call a professional advice, but to get you started, Design Air has put together a post about how solar water heaters work and some of the benefits you can get from them.

If you are looking to heat the water in your home with renewable energy, solar water heaters are very sustainable and use very little outside energy. First you need to install the solar panels on a roof or area in your yard that gets the most sunlight. Some people think that a solar water heater will only work in a sunny or warm region, but they actually work in a variety of different climates. The panels help store the energy gained when there are periods of direct sunlight.

To take full advantage your new solar water heater, call a heating contractor you can trust. There are other solar heating systems that can be installed in your home, so be sure to ask about those if you are interested in both. It’s easier to install them all at once. You can also install a hybrid water heater that uses less energy than standard water heaters.

If you have more questions about how these water heaters work, or any other questions about solar water heating New City, NY, call Design Air Inc. any time!
