Not all hot water heaters can be repaired. After years of service, corrosion and hard-water buildup can damage your hot water heater. Old units are often not very energy efficient, and they can waste energy (gas or electricity) and water. Some older units are also poorly installed, either due to improper / unsafe wiring or poor quality plumbing materials and connections. That’s why it is smart to call an expert like Mr. Rooter Plumbing and let us perform an inspection.
If your water heater is broken or leaking, you need our help right away, and we can provide emergency water heater repair services in the Utica area. We’ll get to you as quickly as possible and do what we can to repair your water heater.
But even if your water heater isn’t broken, we can often suggest repairs that will allow you to get more use out of your current model. While a brand new water heater can save you money thanks to higher efficiency and lower yearly operating costs, it can be an expensive initial cost to purchase a new one.
Types of Repairs
Mr. Rooter plumbing is equipped for all possible water heater repairs. We are experts in water heaters with and without a tank, as well as gas and electric-heated styles. If there’s a water leak or heating element problem, we can get the parts and install them to get your hot water back on.
If your water heater is still producing hot water, but the pressure is low or the water isn’t as hot as you’d like, we can perform a diagnostic test and determine the problem. In some cases, it’s a matter of disassembling and cleaning your cold water inlet and hot water outlet lines to remove scale and build up. In other cases, there might be faulty electrical connections that cause intermittent problems.
Having Mr. Rooter Plumbing visit for a yearly inspection is also a good idea. Many people choose to do this before winter, but there’s never a wrong time to have your hot water heater inspected. We may be able to suggest repairsbefore your heater breaks down and avoid annoying and costly leak or flood repairs.
There’s no need to panic if your water heater isn’t working properly. In many cases, Mr. Rooter Plumbing can make the repairs necessary to get your hot water running again. Contact us today.
