Water Heater Repair and Replacement
Not having hot water can create hassles for you in the kitchen and discomfort in the bathroom. If your hot water heater is not working well or is not working at all, we are here to help. Our technicians can quickly diagnose the problem. Depending on what is wrong, we can either perform hot water heater repair or handle a new hot water heater installation.
Repair or Replace?
Whether it makes more sense to repair or replace your water heater depends on what is wrong and how old it is. In many cases, units that are older tend to have more problems or issues that warrant a replacement. Fortunately, many people we help have water heater issues that only require repairs or some maintenance. Our technicians will let you know what the optimal choice is in your situation and can discuss costs with you after they diagnose the problem.

Diagnosing Hot Water Heater Problems
Sometimes, the problem you are experiencing can indicate the nature of the problem or a few potential causes. When the water is cold, it could be a faulty thermostat, a bad heating element, or a lack of power. If the water is not hot enough and not cold, it could be a faulty thermostat or heating element. In some cases, it may be a crossed plumbing connection or a water heater that is too small. If the water is too hot, it means the temperature is set too high on the thermostat. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, an ideal water heater temperature is 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
When you notice clunking sounds in your water heater, it may be mineral deposits or sediment. A professional can help you flush and clean the tank. When minerals build up and are not removed, this can damage the inside of your tank and lead to corrosion. One of the most stressful problems to experience is a leaky water heater. If water is leaking from the bottom of the tank, it usually indicates the need for a replacement. However, leaking water is not always a sure sign that you need a new unit. Some leaks are due to issues that can be fixed.
