- SUBURBAN WATER HEATER UNDERSTANDS PROPER SIZING
Part of our job is to properly size the water heater. That includes calculation the demands from multiple
bathrooms, dishwashers, clothes washers and any other points-of-use.
- SUBURBAN WATER HEATER UNDERSTANDS THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER VENTING
It is critical to vent the unit to the manufacturerís specifications. Improper vent size, total length or configuration
can lead to a dangerous build-up of carbon monoxide inside the home.
- INSTALLING THE PROPER T&P VALVE
The temperature and pressure relief valve opens to relieve pressure. Improper installation or the choice of an inadequate
valve can cause damage to the water heater or a hazardous pressure build-up.
- WORKING SAFELY WITH A GAS FUEL SOURCE
Gas-fired water heaters require knowledge of the gas fuel source and an understanding of gas connections and supply
lines. Suburban Water Heater has this experience and knowledge.

Water heaters are factory-set at a certain temperature for your safety.
We will explain the settings and the dangers
of improper use of the water heaterís thermostat.
- COMBUSTION AIR IS VERY IMPORTANT
Water heaters equipped with a burner require combustion air. Location of the water heater in an area where the flow of
combustion air is impeded causes oxygen starvation.
- PROPER DRAINAGE IS A MUST
After several years of good service, a water heater could leak or expel water due to pressure build-up. This could cause damage
to floor coverings and other items. We will install a drain pan and pipe it properly to drain.
- GETTING THE RIGHT GAS WATER HEATER FOR YOUR HOME
Gas valves are designed to handle a specific type of fuel. Some gas-fired water heaters are designed for certain types
of homes. Making the wrong choice can be a serious hazard.
- KNOWLEDGE OF ELECTRICITY AND ITS USES
Installation of electric water heaters requires knowledge of the properly rated wiring material as well as knowledge
of the homeís electrical capacity. An adequate electrical service is a requirement.
- SUBURBAN WATER HEATER UNDERSTANDS THERMAL EXPANSION
Do you have an open or closed water system? Closed systems are subject to thermal expansion and pressure build-up.
Open systems can become closed when check valves, water softeners or water meters are added.
We will add an expansion
tank to avoid problems.
- PRESSURE BUILD-UP IS A SERIOUS MATTER
Even if your water heater tank doesnít rupture from thermal expansion, pressure inside the tank can cause a constriction
of the flue tube. This, in turn, can cause a back up of combustion gases and carbon monoxide inside the home.
- MULTI-PURPOSE WATER HEATERS MAY BE THE ANSWER
Dual-purpose models can be used for space heating and snow melting when properly connected to a hydronic piping system.
We know where to find these special models.
- MANY SPECIAL WATER HEATERS ARENíT SOLD TO CONSUMERS
Some water heaters cannot be purchased by the public. There are literally thousands of models with important variations
and features that youíll never know about unless you call us.
- IT MAY BE TIME FOR A TRADE-IN
Even if your water heater is functioning adequately, maybe youíre not getting as much hot water as you need. It may be
time to upgrade. Itís tough for a retailer or non-professional to advise you. We can give you guidance
and explain your options.

we can diagnose what may be a simple problem.
You may just need an inexpensive replacement part.
