You turn the shower on expecting a relaxing burst of warm water. Instead, you feel like you just got hosed.

As a resident of Bellingham or Mount Vernon, you can just contact 360-685-8098 for prompt, courteous water heater service.
Prior to the invention of the water heater, you had to warm water in a pot on a fire or a stove. You’d then have to cart it to the tub, risking blisters and burns on the way. As the process was time consuming, families often opted to share hot water between them. In 1889, however, an inventor by the name of Edwin Ruud succeeded in making things a little easier. At first, water heaters were a convenience of well-to-do families, but that soon changed. We’ve come a long way to ensuring every household has access to hot water when and where it’s needed. The addition of tankless units also lets us do it without wasting a ton of space.
Today’s water heaters are convenient and intuitive. Once installed, they run almost entirely without human intervention. Nowadays, there are several designs available in the Bellingham area. And, when it comes to installing the system that’s right fo you, it’s hard to beat the plumbing experts at LaVergne's.
