When You Need Professional Hot Water Heater Repair

All hot water heaters eventually need maintenance or repairs. If you have been scheduling regular hot water heater maintenance every couple of years, the repairs your water heater needs won’t be a surprise. If you’ve gone years without having your hot water heater inspected or maintained, you may need professional hot water heater repairs. Pay attention to these warning signs, and then call us for hot water heater repair and replacement:

  • The water temperature fluctuates while you’re washing dishes or showering
  • The water pressure keeps going up and down
  • Hot water is leaking from the water heater, or you notice signs of water damage near the water heater, such as stains on the floor or ceiling, mold or mildew growth, a musty smell, or rust around the water heater fixtures
  • Your water is cloudy and smells strange, or is rust-colored
  • The water heater is making strange new noises
  • You aren’t getting enough hot water to meet your family’s daily needs
  • You haven’t gotten hot water heater maintenance in over a year
  • Your water bills or water heater bills have increased without cause

Deciding Between Hot Water Heater Repair & Replacement

Most hot water heaters last around 11-20 years if they are properly installed and maintained. At some point, you will need hot water heater replacement rather than just a repair. We will help you determine if it is better to repair or replace your hot water heater by examining key factors, evaluating the repairs it needs, and discussing all options with you. We will never recommend you spend money on something you don’t really need and will only suggest hot water heater replacement if it is more cost-effective and logical than wasting more money on repairs. These are some of the factors we take into consideration when deciding between hot water heater repair and replacement:

  • Your water heater is over 15 years old
  • It was installed improperly
  • It was installed outside
  • It has had multiple repairs over the years
  • It has never been maintained or was repaired incorrectly
  • It is no longer providing enough hot water for your household’s needs
  • The cost of heat water has increased and you would benefit from a more energy-efficient water heater
  • Repairs would cost almost as much as a new water heater

Choosing a New Hot Water Heater for Your Home

If we determine you would benefit from installing a new water heater in your home, we can help you choose the best new water heater for your family’s needs, lifestyle, and budget. We can install these types of hot water heaters in homes:

  • Conventional - A conventional water heater has a large storage tank that can hold between 30-60 gallons of water. Water is heated with natural gas, electricity, propane, or fuel oil and stored in the tank until you need it. If you install a high-efficiency water heater, you can save up to 7% on your water heating costs.
  • Tankless - A tankless water heater doesn’t use a storage tank but heats water up on-demand as it passes through the unit. It uses a heat exchanger to heat up the water using electricity, propane, or natural gas. Tankless water heaters can be mounted on a wall and don’t take up much space. If you install a tankless water heater, you can save up to 30% on your water heating costs.
  • Hybrid - A hybrid water heater has a holding tank for water but uses a heat pump on top of the tank to heat the water. The heat pump transfers warm air from the room into the unit to heat the water. If that isn’t sufficient, the heat pump has a heating element that heats up water as needed. If you install a hybrid water heater, you can save up to 60% on your water heating costs.

Once we install a new water heater in your home, we recommend that you schedule routine water heater maintenance. This can prevent plumbing problems and save you money because it will help extend the overall lifespan of your water heater. Our Advantage Plan helps our customers schedule plumbing maintenance services and prevent future plumbing issues.
