Gas Hot Water Systems FAQ

Got a question about gas hot water systems? We’ve got the answers right here.

Gas hot water systems are more expensive upfront, but the savings quickly make up for it. With electricity prices rising, gas hot water systems are rising in popularity. It’s been estimated that 25% of your home’s power goes to your water heater, so gas is a more affordable option. Over a year you will save roughly one third of your energy expenses by making the switch from electricity to gas.

The most common reason for your gas hot water system not heating water is the pilot light going out. Many newer systems have a piezoelectric starter which will light the pilot light for you. However, older systems require manual lighting with a flame. The pilot light can go out because of a gas valve or supply, but the most likely cause is your thermocouple (device for measuring temperature). Alternatively, you might have air in the gas line or low gas pressure. If your thermocouple or flame sensor is faulty, you will likely need these parts replaced. If the gas burner is cracked or damaged, this usually requires a whole water heater replacement.

When considering which gas water heater is the best for your home, there are quite a few factors you need to consider:
  • How many people will be using the hot water?
  • When do you use hot water?
  • Does your dishwasher or washing machine use hot water?
  • Do you have water saving fixtures installed?
You’ll want to consider whether you’re after a storage tank or continuous flow hot water system, whether you have a natural gas connection, how much space you have and more. You can also consider gas-boosted solar water heaters. Upside Down’s plumbing technicians help you make the best choice for your household.
