When Will My Water Heater Fail?

What Does Water Heater Failure Look Like?

Water Heaters Fail at the Worst Possible Time

I heard the story of a Las Vegas resident whose water heater failed ON NEW YEAR’S EVE!! If a water heater is going to fail…it often happens at the very worst time!

Unfortunate Discovery of a Water Heater Failure

The homeowner stepped into his garage (where the water heater was located) to empty the garbage, only to be confronted with a major flood! Water was gushing out of the water heater, streaming through the garage, soaking everything that was not on a shelf before heading out the driveway into the street.

Locating the Water Heater’s Water Turn-Off Valve

After that initial moment of shock, the homeowner understandably attempted to turn the water off. But where was the shut-off valve? There were a number of valves at the base of the water heater and he turned them all off and went into the house to make an emergency maintenance call. Remember, this was New Year’s Eve. More on this later. Returning to the garage the homeowner was shocked to find water still streaming out of the water heater! Did he need to turn off the water supply to the entire house? After a long search, he managed to locate another shut-off valve on top of the water heater. Bingo! That valve turned off the water supply to the heater. Now, back to make a few more emergency maintenance calls. The best first maintenance visit he could successfully schedule was four days later. New Year’s Eve was on a Thursday that year, followed by New Years Day and then a weekend. What are the chances?

Scheduling Professional Water Heater Replacement

The water heater maintenance professional arrived on Monday to scope out the situation. Diagnosis: The water heater had failed, no repair possible, new water heater needed. Order the new water heater and return a few days later to install.

Surviving 7 Days Without a Water Heater

7 days without hot water in the middle of the Winter where cold water is REALLY cold! Ice cold showers or hot sponge baths made possible by heating water on the stove and pouring it into a cold-water bathtub until a decent temperature could be achieved. Enough of this story! As with any crisis, we ask the question: How could this delightful experience have been avoided?

When Will Your Water Heater Fail?

If you can predict the time your water heater may fail, you may be able to avoid that unpleasant surprise. But is water heater failure predictable? If so, what are the signs?

5 Warning Signs of Approaching Water Heater Failure

  1. Look at your water heater warranty. Most water heaters have a 10-year warranty. Why 10 years? Because shortly AFTER the 10-year point the chances of water heater failure dramatically increase.
    • So, water heater failure prediction sign #1: How close to the 10-year point is your water heater?
    • Side note: If you have a tankless water heater, these can perform well for about 20 years. However, you most likely have a water heater with a tank.
  2. You may be noticing a lack of hot water…probably most noticeable in your LUKEWARM SHOWER! Bad bad sign!
  3. Your water heater is making strange rumbling noises. That’s not normal. Water heaters in good condition are relatively silent. So, listen to your water heater.
  4. Cloudy or rusty hot water is a bad sign. Your hot water should be clear. If it’s rusty, that likely indicates that the water heater tank is corroding and your time is limited!
  5. Leaks around the water heater pressure relief valve.

What to Do to Replace Your Water Heater Before It Fails? Extending the Life of Your Water Heater.

You want to get the most use out of the life of your water heater. Replacing it even a year before it fails is a waste of a working water heater. So, you want to predict the moment of failure with approximate accuracy.

  1. Professional Inspection: In the 9th year of the life of your water heater, have a plumber inspect it, especially if you’re noticing any of the above early warning signs of water heater failure. Plumbers can detect issues that are not apparent to most homeowners. After all, you don’t want to take your water heater apart and do a DIY diagnostic job do you? For many homeowners, that alone could lead to EARLY water heater failure!
    • Side note: If you flush your water heater as it ages, you may be able extend the life of your water heater. Over time, sediment builds up in the water heater tank making it work harder and leading to corrosion. How often should you flush your water heater tank? Normally, once every 6 months. If you have hard water, you may need to flush it more often. Flushing a water heater is a job best left to a professional.
  2. Replace the Anode Rod as your water heater ages. The Anode Rod helps prevent damaging rust and corrosion in your water heater tank. Anode rods last between 3-5 years.
  3. Replace the drain valve. The drain valve is likely to fail earlier than the water heater tank.

Replacing your water heater BEFORE it fails can save you money:

  • Energy Cost Savings: A new water heater runs up to 20% more efficiently saving on energy costs.
  • Cost Effective New Water Heater Purchase: You’ll have more time to shop around for the best equipment at the lowest expense.
  • Emergency Maintenance and Replacement Costs: You’ll save on the cost of an emergency maintenance call and unplanned water heater replacement.

Can you replace your own water heater?

If you have a current plumbing license, you probably can. If you do not, don’t try! Water heater replacement involves both sophisticated plumbing and electrical connections. DIY replacement could lead to hazardous conditions and land you in violence of building codes which can cost much more in the long run.

Conclusion:

Being aware of the average life of your water heater, along with knowing the early warning signs of water heater failure can help you know when your water heater might fail before that disaster occurs. And know that disaster is likely to occur at the worst time! In addition, regular water heater maintenance following some of the maintenance tips in this article can extend the life of your water heater. It’s a good policy to have a professional inspect your water heater…especially if you can’t remember when your water heater was last inspected.

How to Know When it’s Time to Replace Your Home’s Furnace or Air Conditioner?

Furnaces and Air Conditioners are Designed for Comfort, But for How Long?

Your home furnace and air conditioner are designed to keep you comfortable during the hottest Las Vegas Summer days and the coolest Las Vegas Winter nights. However, for most people their furnace and air conditioner are hidden in a place (garage or attic) “out of sight, out of mind” and therefore easy to forget. We assume they will continue working because they have worked for months or even years without much attention. How can you know when it’s time to replace your home’s furnace or air conditioner?

1) The Crisis Method of Predicting the Life of Your Furnace or Air Conditioner

Wait until your furnace or air conditioner breaks down.

Here’s the scenario you might expect: Your house is suddenly freezing some Winter night or boiling some Summer day.

DIY Attempts to Fix the Issue

First, you play around with the thermostat settings. Nothing! Then you locate your furnace or air conditioner. Dig through storage to locate a ladder to get into the crawl space in your closet ceiling. Then clear a space for the ladder. Hopefully you can find a flashlight to light your way once you emerge into your attic. Remember, you’re either boiling hot or so cold you can hardly work your hands. You finally manage to locate the furnace or air conditioner, digging through items stacked up in the way. If you’re lucky, you locate the settings and trip a switch thinking it just needs a restart. Nothing!

Calling In a Professional for Emergency Service

Okay, now you know you need to call in a professional. However, it’s likely a Friday evening right before a holiday weekend! Emergency service may not be coming tonight! You make a run to the department store to invest in a space heater or portable air conditioning unit or a huge fan to tide you over until professional service arrives. When the professional does arrive, they may not be able to fix your air conditioner or furnace on the spot but have to order parts. Another few days of waiting in freezing or boiling hot indoor temperatures! In an extreme situation you may even need to move to a motel or a friend or relative’s house for a few days. Imagine what your family members are thinking of you at this moment! So much for the crisis method of how to know when it’s time to replace your home’s furnace or air conditioner.

2) The Guesswork Method of Predicting When Your Furnace or Air Conditioner’s Life May End:

Try to Guess the Life of Your Furnace or Air Conditioner

This is better than the crisis method. You may avert an emergency breakdown of your home’s air conditioner or furnace with the guesswork method. It goes something like this: You reason that most warranties cover 10 years. Why? Because the smart warranty people figure that your air conditioner or furnace will work relatively problem free for about 10 years before things begin to break down.

Schedule Professional Maintenance Near the End of the 10-Year Warranty Period

You call a professional in for a thorough maintenance visit between year’s 9 and 10. If you’re lucky your air conditioner or furnace did not break down earlier. The professional performs maintenance that extends the life of your air conditioner or furnace a few more years. In addition, they might be able to predict how many years your air conditioner or furnace have left before they need to be replaced. You beat the odds and avoided an emergency breakdown, perhaps extending the life of your air conditioner or furnace a few years.

3) The Proactive Method of Knowing When Your Furnace or Air Conditioner Might Break Down

Schedule regular maintenance.

You have a professional perform regular maintenance at least annually thereby extending the life of your home’s air conditioner or furnace, potentially up to 10 additional years giving you 20 years in all. At the same time, your professional may be able to more accurately predict within a few months to a year when it’s time to give in and replace your furnace or air conditioner.

Importance of Furnace Maintenance

Furnace Maintenance: Probably Not Top of Mind

The importance of furnace maintenance is probably not top of mind in your daily thoughts. In fact, do you even remember what your furnace looks like? It’s hidden away in some closet, attic or your garage. Hopefully there are not items in storage leaning against or on top of your furnace at this moment! Out of sight, out of mind.

Furnaces are pretty reliable most of the time, so we forget they’re there…until something goes wrong!

What could go wrong with your furnace and what damage, expense or danger could result?

Much of the damage that could be caused by a malfunctioning furnace will not be discovered immediately. You’ll only discover the damage when it’s time to pay the price. Kind of like having those auto-withdrawal payments from your bank account you no longer need, forgot about and continue to pay monthly, then discover after the accumulative cost is embarrassingly large!

A poorly maintained furnace is like having a bad hidden monthly auto-withdrawal from your bank account!

Let’s list some of the hidden monthly expenses you could incur with a poorly maintained furnace.

Regular Furnace Maintenance Saves Energy Costs EVERY Month

You furnace can easily rack up 50% of your energy bill. A well-maintained furnace costs about 30% less per month to run. In terms of your total energy bill, that’s an overall 15% savings every single month. If your last energy bill was $200 with a poorly maintained furnace, it could be $170 with a well-maintained furnace, saving you $30 each month X 8 cold season months = $240 per year bad hidden auto-withdrawal from your bank account! If your furnace is poorly maintained, you’re allowing the equivalent of an auto $30 monthly withdrawal from your bank account! But there’s more!

Regular furnace maintenance can save you costs in terms of increased health care expenses.

You’re constantly breathing the air circulated through your furnace. Consider the quality of that air. The air exchange in homes is already lower by far than a shopping mall, other public buildings and certainly the great outdoors. We are all learning this with COVID19 warnings about gathering indoors. That’s because indoor air is not the healthiest. Now, compound this poor air exchange with dirty furnace filters. Your furnace filters need to be changed monthly to properly clean air circulated by your furnace. When is the last time you changed your furnace filters? Do you know where they’re located? Now, compound this poor air quality even further.

Poorly maintained furnaces regularly circulate unhealthy air.

A dirty furnace stores and regularly blows out its accumulated dust, debris, mold, pollen, bacterial and virus contaminants, circulating them throughout your home and ultimately into your lungs. Ever wonder why when one person in the family comes down with a cold or the flu or something worse, everyone catches it? It’s because many diseases are airborne and circulated by dirty furnaces and furnace filters.

Unhealthy air can create costly healthcare expenses.

So, how much did the last health issue you or a family member experienced cost in terms of doctor visits, medication, co-pays, lost time at work? Possibly, a clean, well-maintained furnace might have saved you that money. That’s like another of those hidden, run-away auto-withdrawals from your bank account! And, worst case scenario, leaky gas from a poorly maintained furnace could send odorless carbon monoxide through your home. That’s more than costly. It’s life threatening!

Regular furnace maintenance can save you costs in by adding years to the life of your furnace.

A well-maintained furnace can last around 20 years. Take 5 years off of that life-span for a poorly maintained furnace. That’s a loss of 25% of its life. You’re looking at from $1000 – $3000 for a new furnace. Add in installation costs and cost of disposal of your old furnace. We haven’t even added in financing. Let’s very conservatively say $2,000 for a new furnace that if well-maintained will last 20 years. If poorly maintained, you just lost $500 of that $2000 or $20/month bad hidden auto withdrawal from your bank account each month.

Regular furnace maintenance can save you from a void warranty.

Most furnaces come with a 10-year warranty. However, poor maintenance can void that warranty. In addition, if a well-maintained furnace lasts 20 years, it may be possible to renew the warranty for the second 10 years potentially saving you a sudden unexpected expense in the event your furnace breaks down in its later life.

Regular furnace maintenance can save you physical discomfort.

Are there rooms in your home that never seem to warm up? A back bedroom, your basement, the bathroom furthest away from the furnace? How does that feel? You probably don’t spend time in those rooms. What percentage square feet of your home are you avoiding using due to inadequate heat? Your monthly mortgage bill is a charge for your total home space. Let’s say you’re avoiding a conservative 5% of that space due to heating discomfort. That’s another hidden cost…bad monthly auto withdrawal. Let’s give this $100/month waste expense based on 5% of a $2,000 monthly mortgage.

Part of regular furnace maintenance is ensuring even distribution of heat throughout your home, allowing you to enjoy the full value of every room!

Regular furnace maintenance can save you the unexpected expense of a breakdown.

And, imagine on the coldest day of the Winter having a furnace breakdown…likely in the middle of the night on a weekend. Isn’t that when these types of things seem to happen? You have no regular furnace guy to call so you’re searching companies you’ve never heard of while freezing at 30-degree temperatures. Believe me, you’re unlikely to get the best service price on that emergency call, and an emergency furnace replacement will likely cost you much more than a planned furnace replacement. But there’s more…Your water pipes are also freezing, and possibly bursting. Now you need to find a plumber and face that additional expense. You have to turn off your water and spend the night in a motel. Water leaked, causing further damage which needs to be repaired…perhaps a carpet replacement? Replacing a floor? Yikes!!

Regular furnace maintenance saves you how much?

Let’s recap on your savings with regular furnace maintenance:

  • $30/month energy costs (conservative estimate)
  • $20/month loss of furnace lifespan (conservative estimate)
  • $100/month. Lack of use of 5% of your home due to discomfort in cold areas.
  • Health care expenses, sick time, doctors visits (we did not put a number here)
  • Furnace breakdown not covered because warranty void or non-renewable warranty (no $ estimate given)
  • Home damage caused by furnace breakdown (no $ estimate).

Here’s the final very conservative tab: $150/month calculated expense waste due to a poorly maintained furnace plus a potentially much larger expense if some of the other (health, damage) losses are given a dollar value.

Moral of the Story: Regular Furnace Maintenance Pays for Itself Many Times Over

Tips on Choosing a Thermostat

Any homeowner wants the HVAC system to work as efficiently as possible, which includes choosing a thermostat. A well-functioning HVAC system will make your home as comfortable as possible without running up your monthly energy costs.

Tips on Choosing a Thermostat

There are several ways you can ensure that your heating and cooling system is doing its job. Have you considered purchasing a smart thermometer? Homes are getting smarter, and thermostats are no exception to this. Smart thermostats have several benefits compared to their ancestors. If you are in the market for one, use these tips.

Installation

If you don’t have a lot of experience, choose a thermostat that is easy to install. Many options you can install yourself. Install your smart thermostat in an area away from vents and direct sunlight so it can get a correct reading on the temperature in your home. If you aren’t sure what to do, a professional can install it for you.

Features

Each thermostat comes with a variety of features in different combinations. Before you start shopping, consider what is most important to you. For example, a business owner of an office that is closed at night should consider a model with an automatic timer. They can save you a lot of money by automatically turning off your HVAC system when you don’t need it.

Remote Access

Another great feature found on many smart thermostats is remote access. This feature empowers you to control your HVAC system remotely from your smart home. Did it suddenly get a lot hotter while you were at work? Now, you can turn on the HVAC system while you are on the way home, so it’s comfortable when you arrive.

Compatibility

It may seem simple, but a lot of people overlook choosing the thermostat compatible with their HVAC system. In some cases, a smart thermometer may not work with older HVAC systems and certain newer models.

How Does a Heating System Work?

HVAC Las Vegas

Most people take their heating system for granted, at least until something goes wrong with it. If you understand how your HVAC system works, there are some tasks you can do yourself without needing to call a professional. Here are the basic components of your heating system.

Heating Source

Most homes in North America are heated by a central furnace, using either electricity or natural gas to heat the air. In a gas furnace, the gas is combusted, which causes a metal heat exchanger to grow hot. The air above the heat exchanger gets hot and a furnace fan blows this air into your ductwork. In an electric furnace, coils get heated, but the same principles apply.
If something goes wrong with your furnace and you need help in Las Vegas, Mastermind Mechanical LLC stands ready to provide assistance. We have been in business for over 15 years.

Ductwork

Your home has ductwork, located in the crawlspace, basement or attic. Hot air blows through the ducts and comes out through various registers. This results in your entire home being heated unless you have closed some registers or they are blocked.

Thermostat

Central furnaces are connected to a thermostat in your home. The thermostat monitors the temperature of air in your home. Once the temperature has dropped below where you set it, it will send a signal to the furnace telling it to turn on. The thermostat signals the furnace when the right temperature has been reached.

Return Air

Your home has a return air register. Cooler air enters this register and returns to the furnace, where it is once again heated and sent into your home.

Contact other business owners and property managers for referrals. Ask specific questions about their level of satisfaction with the services. Did the technicians arrive on time?

2. Review HVAC Company Websites

Go to each company’s website and review it to learn more about the business. A good HVAC website includes a list of services, scheduling information, and current specials.

3. Read Customer Reviews

Search engines and third-party providers give customers the opportunity to review companies. Look for reviews of each HVAC company on the internet. Read the good and bad reviews. Reviews can tell you everything you need to know about customer service.

All commercial HVAC companies should be licensed, insured, and bonded. These requirements protect you if something goes wrong.

The Pros and Cons of Space Heaters

Las Vegas Heating & Cooling Services

Mastermind Mechanical offers a broad range of heating services for customers throughout the Las Vegas region. We know that many people in this area want to limit their energy bills during winter. Modern space heaters can be an effective way to do that with relatively little investment.

Localized Heating

While zoned heating is becoming more prevalent, many homeowners still have traditional central heating. This means that the selected temperature applies through a home. That can be wasteful, for instance, if everyone is in the TV room. A space heater in that room can keep everyone comfortable while letting you drop the main temperature as much as 10 degrees, which is a huge difference.

A home heating and cooling system evaluation and upgrade could solve all your home comfort problems. Contact Mastermind Mechanical in Las Vegas, Nevada (702) 420-2121. However, if you depend on space heaters for comfort and economy, read on, here are some tips…

Ease of Use

Space heaters have been around for decades, and they have evolved substantially in that time. They are less expensive than ever before, and they are quite easy to use. Just plug it in, rotate a dial and enjoy the heat. Safety has improved greatly as well. Burn and fire risks are much lower with newer space heaters, and many models have switches that can trip during various scenarios to disable the unit.

Requires Active Monitoring

Despite how safe space heaters have become, they still have to be monitored actively. That is fine in many scenarios but diminishes their overnight usefulness. They should not be in any room that will lack adult supervision for any stretch of time.

Positioning and Repositioning

Space heaters remain the leading cause of residential fires during winter. You have to position them with great care and perhaps even prepare the spot to avoid fire and burn hazards. If you will use the heater for an extended period, you will also need one or more additional positions prepared in advance so that you can move the heater and avoid overheating of a fixed location.

Your Total Comfort

Let Mastermind Mechanical a Las Vegas HVAC company help you ensure heating and AC comfort throughout your home. We also provide air conditioning and appliances services. Call today or contact us online to schedule an appointment.

Heating System Repair Needed – 4 Warning Signs

Heating Repair | HVAC Repair Services Las Vegas

During the long winter period, your HVAC system works continuously to keep you and your loved ones warm and comfortable.

The unremitting use of your heating system can be quite taxing on your HVAC unit; therefore, it’s important to check out for some warning signs that it needs repairs.

Here are a few signs of a heater in disrepair that homeowners should be aware of.

1) Decreased flow of air

A blockage in your ductwork or malfunctioning fan can substantially reduce the air flow throughout your home. If you feel that there’s a reduction in the airflow from your vents, you should get your HVAC repaired as it puts extra pressure on your unit to warm your home.

Not only does it increase your energy costs, but also makes the component work much harder, which can leave them more prone to breakdowns and shorten their lifespan.

2) Low levels of heat

If you notice that the air coming out of your HVAC system is not warm enough like it used to be or not sufficient enough to warm up the room, it’s a sign that you should have your unit checked with a licensed technician.

The lower levels of heat may be due to lack of fuel, clogged burner, or any other issue that a professional will identify and fix so that it can effectively serve its intended purpose.

3) Higher energy costs

If your energy bills are higher than usual, there’s a possibility that your HVAC unit has something to do with it, considering the fact that heating and cooling costs account for around 50% of the total energy costs in a typical household. If your monthly energy costs are driving up, it’s likely that your heating system is not working effectively, thus might be in disrepair.

4) Strange noises

If you hear strange or odd sounds coming from your HVAC system that you never heard before and does not usually come from your HVAC unit, then it’s important that there’s an underlying problem that needs to be addressed.

These sounds may include groans, rattles, hums, and even whistles. Though you might choose to ignore them and nothing will happen, it’s prudent that you get an inspection done as it’ll offer you a peace of mind.

If you’re looking for an air conditioning service provider to get your HVAC system repaired, contact us Mastermind Mechanical LLC. We’re a family owned Las Vegas HVAC company that offers top quality repair and maintenance services to our clients.

The Importance of Having an HVAC Maintenance Plan

Importance of an HVAC Maintenance Plan

We service HVAC Cooling and Heating Systems in Las Vegas as well as providing emergency repairs, maintenance, and new installation.

The importance of having an HVAC maintenance plan cannot be stressed more. In the long run, it can potentially save you hundreds and even thousands of dollars in costly repairs. Aside from the monetary benefits, there’s a myriad of benefits that regular maintenance can offer.

Our team of Las Vegas HVAC installation, repair, and maintenance experts are ready to do the job right the first time

Here are a few reasons why it’s so important to have an HVAC maintenance plan:

Increase the lifespan of your HVAC unit

Having an effective HVAC maintenance plan in place improves the longevity of your unit. As your HVAC unit will not have to overwork or overcompensate for components that are faulty or subject to extensive wear and tear, they’ll last much longer and work efficiently.

Improved air quality

HVAC unit can help in creating a comfortable indoor environment and save you from harsh weather conditions

However, when dirt and grime is accumulated in the blower parts or coils of the unit, it can give rise to health-related concerns. Regular maintenance can improve air quality and make a healthier atmosphere for you and your family.

Increase the levels of energy efficiency

Regular upkeep of your HVAC system can significantly substantially improve the energy efficiency levels of your HVAC unit. In fact, simply replacement of a clogged, dirty filter can improve your air conditioners energy consumption by 5% to 15%.

Reduce the chances of emergency breakdowns

Most emergency cooling or heating repairs arise due to ignored maintenance. Preventative maintenance can lessen the chances of emergency breakdowns which can be super inconvenient.

Keep your warranty intact

At some point, your HVAC unit will suffer a breakdown and having a warranty intact can save you hundreds of dollars in repairs. There’s a chance that if you don’t maintain your HVAC system, your warranty will be void and you’ll be left with hefty repair bills. Thus, it’s important to maintain your unit to protect your investment.

If you’re looking for an air conditioning service provider for the regular maintenance of your HVAC system, contact Mastermind Mechanical LLC. We’re a family-owned Las Vegas HVAC company that offers top quality repair and maintenance services to our clients.
