Types of Water Heaters We Service
At American Vintage Home, we understand how important hot water is to your North Shore home. Our trained technicians are experts in servicing all types of water heaters, including:
As water heats, it creates more pressure and looks for a way to escape. In newer homes, backflow prevention stops water from reentering the water supply. Older homes do not have backflow prevention valves, which means that with enough pressure, the hot water can flow back through the cold water pipe it came from.
A water heater expansion tank provides a pressurized environment that absorbs expanded water and keeps the system pressure within safe levels. If you have an older Chicago North Shore home, there are additional benefits to installing a water heater expansion tank, including:
- Preventing dripping faucets and running toilets
- Stopping built-up pressure from reaching and damaging plumbing fixtures
- Reducing hot water waste from backflow or leaks
- Protecting your water heater and surrounding piping from water pressure fluctuations
