The two of us had a problem with the hot water today and I went to look up in the attic, where they have the hot water tank for some odd reason, and it is all rusty and leaking.
I don’t know why they would put the tank up in the attic, it’s akin to putting your waterbed up in the attic living room of a house, knowing that if it leaks it is going to do a lot of serious damage to the house.
Maybe the electric water heating system we had should have been put in the basement instead. I’ll never understand why they put it up there but at this point it legitimately doesn’t matter, we just need to get it fixed either way. I think we are going to switch to a tankless instant hot water heating plan so we don’t have to worry about leaking tanks ever again. I am going to have to call a business to come out and do the repairs as I am not fine with plumbing and electrical repairs. There is a local business in our section which is legitimately fine and I think they are open today so I will have to give them a call and get on this. I also don’t like taking chilly showers in the fall because the water is way too cold. I wonder if we should go with a gas heating system this time, or if an electric heating system is more efficient. I’m sure they can tell me and others which one is inevitably better. I could also go online and do some research myself.
