Common FAQ's for Water Heater Installation

Why does the pilot light on my water heater keep going out?

The most common reason that your pilot light on your water heater keeps going out is a damaged, bent, or dirty thermocouple.

The thermocouple is part of the pilot burner assembly and connects to the gas control valve on the outside of the water heater. It is a simple device that converts the heat from a burning flame into a small electrical current, allowing it to work like a switch to control the flow of gas from the gas supply valve.

Why does my water never seem to get hot or run out quickly?

If the reduction of hot water has been gradual, the issue is most likely due to sediment build up inside the bottom of the tank. overtime, this naturally occurring sediment fills the bottom of the tank and leaves less room for hot water. 

Other potential causes can include a bad lower element or a broken dip tube.

What is the best temperature for my water heater?

Most manufacturers set the default temperature on new water heaters at 120° F. This is ideal since most people find this temperature comfortable and it provides plenty of hot water. 

By reducing your water heater thermostat from 140° to 120°, you can save an estimated 3 to 21% on your energy bills. 

The lower temperature also can extend the life of you water heater by slowing corrosion and mineral buildup in your tank and pipes.

Great service right from Jackie answering my call to Rory the technician! My appointment was from 2 to 4 but, Rory was here 2 hours early and that was very appropriate considering it was 83 degrees in my house! Rory explained the situation and what was needed for a fix! Very professional and personable!! Highly recommended

Wow! phenomenal customer service from Jackie on the phone, Lee, and the install professionals! I'm so glad I heard about this place. Had a new AC unit and furnace install. I called on a Monday and Tuesday they came out and quoted a great honest price. 2 weeks later they show up on time and work extremely hard and efficiently. I have already started recommending this company!

Lee Rose is a genius with a boiler and I have used his expertise for 16 years or more. He was the third repair guy I tried. It’s super hard to find someone to work on a residential boiler, let alone someone who can actually fix it! He has provided us with beyond excellent service through the years. He always responds quickly when I need something. Thanks for being a company I can count on, Lee!

Des Moines Comfort has been servicing my equipment for years. The maintenance package was a smart decision. They come out twice a year. I had an appointment yesterday, Jeff was early and I wasn’t home yet. I told him how to get in, he even took the dog out!!
Thanks!

Des Moines Comfort is a great company!! Their technicians are very professional and knowledgeable. They replaced an AC coil for us and it works great! They showed up exactly when they said they’d be here and even sent notice when they were in route. The technician even put up with our 2 little kids bugging him and answered all their little questions. Highly recommend DSM Comfort!

My geothermal was straining to evenly cool my old house. The Des Moines Comfort team suggested an improvement without replacing. Installed and totally works.

I can’t say enough about the Des Moines comfort team. They were professional, responsive, and caring since the first call. They sent a worker out first thing in the morning with a picture of who would be arriving and when. They did great work and left the work area very clean. I would highly recommend them for all HVAC needs.
