Water Heater Maintenance

We can provide regular maintenance, repairs, and replacements to help increase the life of your water heater. Maintaining your equipment might seem unnecessary at times but will improve the life of your water heater as well as save you from having to replace it as often.

A lot of people may be unaware of how important maintenance on a water heater is. There are many signs and symptoms that a water heater might show before it needs repair. Some of the signs may be:

•    Visible Leak
•    Diminished Water Quality
•    Noisy or Loud Water Heater
•    Spike in Utility Bills

If you notice an increase in your water bill or a decline in your supply of hot water, you may be experiencing a leak. Not only can this cause an increase in utility bills, but leaking water can also cause damage to the area surrounding the water heater. This will also cause the water heater to work harder to heat the remaining water inside the tank because it is losing hot water through the leak.

The life and quality of a water heater will significantly increase with regular maintenance. As time goes on, your water heater naturally starts to fill itself with sediment at the bottom of the tank. Flushing your water heater is the best way to keep the sediment and keep your water heater working efficiently. Another process that naturally occurs is corrosion on the inside of the tank.

Not many people are aware of how vital the anode rod is to keeping your water heater in its best condition. As the inside of the tank starts to corrode, it will first eat away at the anode rod. Once the anode rod is completely corroded, the inside of the tank begins to eat away as well. Replacing the anode rod regularly will significantly increase the life span of the water heater.

Tankless Water Heater Installation

Are you interested in getting a new tankless water heater? We install these new units all the time, and our customer love how much move it saves them on their utility bills each month.

Tankless water heaters yield many benefits compared to a traditional water heater. A conventional water heater is a large tank that takes up a lot of floor space. A tankless water heater is mounted to the wall and is significantly smaller.

Another benefit is the endless amount of hot water. With a tankless water heater, you will never run out of hot water due to the way the water is heated. Tankless water heaters heat the water only as you need it instead of keeping hot water inside a tank. This method not only gives you an endless supply of hot water but it also dramatically reduces your utility bills as well.

Tankless water heaters are not as easy to repair and replace as a traditional water heater. We have knowledgeable, trained technicians who can successfully repair and replace tankless water heaters at reasonable costs. Call us today to find out if you are a good candidate for a tankless water heater.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes a water heater to break down?

Water heaters can break and leak for various reasons but some of the main problems are the water pressure is too high, a loose drain valve, wear and tear. Older water heaters tend to have parts that wear out over time due to corrosion and rusting.

Do plumbers fix water heaters?

Yes, one of the main reasons we get called out to a customer’s house is their water heater has broken down and isn’t supplying hot water anymore.  Our professional plumbers can quickly fix or replace your tank in no time.

How long should a water heater last?

The answer to this question will depend on if your water heater has received regular maintenance or not.  When you get regularly scheduled maintenance, it will prolong the life of your equipment.  Most water heaters will last between ten and fifteen years on average.

Can your plumbers repair water heaters?

Yes, some problems with water heaters can be repaired but not all. If you have an older model water heater it may be time to replace rather than keep repairing.

What causes the reset button to keep popping out?

If you have a bad or faulty thermostat, this will continuously cause the reset button to pop out.  Additionally, if the water in your tank exceeds 180 degrees as a safety feature, it will cause the button to pop, shutting your tank off. Other causes of this issue are a faulty reset button, bad heating element, and bad electrical connections.

How much does it cost to replace a water heater?

It will depend on the location and size tank of the tank, and whether or not your previous tank was up to building codes.  It is best to call us at (909) 883-8827 to provide us more information about your specific situation.
