Hot Water Heater Repair, Installation, Service, & Maintenance
Hot water is an essential part of modern life, a necessity rather than a luxury. So choosing and installing a water heater is a very important decision in the life of your home. Whether you are replacing an old water heater or installing a brand new system, you may be concerned about the price. There are a number of factors that play a part in the cost of installing a new hot water heater.
If your water heater has a 12-year warranty and it’s been in service for 15, it might be time to get a new one. In homes with hard water, which can be tougher on water heaters, a water heater may fail within the warranty period.
If you haven't replaced your water heater in a few years, you'll find more choices—and more energy-efficient regulations—so do your homework. You may have to spend more up front for a model that will save you money over time.
Water heating amounts to nearly 20 percent of a home's energy costs. As the result of new efficiency standards, water heaters under 55 gallons will see about a 4 percent boost in efficiency, while water heaters 55 gallons or more may cut your utility bills by 25 to 50 percent depending on the technology used.
Based on the manufacturer's suggested service life, the life expectancy of a water heater is about 8 to 12 years. That varies with the location and design of the unit, quality of installation, maintenance schedule and water quality.
If your water heater is more than 10 years old, leaks around the base of the tank, and / or works erratically or not at all, it's probably time for replacement
If you're replacing a water heater, you can replace it with the same type of unit. However, upgrade possibilities should be considered. For example, you may choose to increase or decrease the unit's holding capacity to accommodate a changing family. Or, you may opt to go tankless.
When looking for a new water heater, consider these features:
If you have more than one fuel type available in your area, it's a good idea to compare fuel costs, especially if you're building a new home. Even if you're replacing a water heater, you may find that you'll save more money in the long run if you use a different fuel or energy source. Contact your utility for current fuel costs or rates.
The type of water heater you choose will also affect your water heating costs. One type of water heater may use a fuel type more efficiently than another type of water heater. For example, an electric heat pump water heater typically is more energy efficient than an electric conventional storage water heater. Also, an electric heat pump water heater might have lower energy costs because of its higher efficiency than a gas-fired conventional storage water heater, even though local natural gas costs might be lower than the electricity rates.
They’re best for people who typically aren’t drawing water for more than one use at a time—running a shower and dishwasher simultaneously.
Available in many areas of the United States to fuel conventional storage and demand (tankless or instantaneous) water heaters, as well as combination water and space heating systems, which include tankless coil and indirect water heaters.
Even with federal and local rebates, what you'll spend to buy and install a solar system can mean you wait 10 to 30 years to recoup your costs.

Widely available in the United States to fuel conventional storage, tankless or demand-type, and heat pump water heaters. It also can be used with combination water and space heating systems, which include tankless coil and indirect water heaters.

Before making repairs or purchasing a new water heater, check the nameplate on the side of your current unit. Here you will find helpful information including the tank capacity, insulation R-value, installation guidelines, working pressure, model and serial number. If you have an electric water heater, the nameplate will also list the wattage capacity and voltage of the heating elements.
Water heaters come in two different styles: tank and tankless. Both heat your water, but they do it in different ways. A tank style water heater stores a given amount of water, usually 40 to 50 gallons, and keeps it heated to the temperature you set it at, sending it along when you open the hot water tap. A tankless system doesn’t store the water and heats it only when you need it by means of a series of super-heated coils.
Storage tanks are the most common type of water heater. As the name suggests, these consist of an insulated tank in which water is heated and stored until needed, then emerges from a pipe on top of the water heater.
There is also a temperature and pressure-relief valve, which opens if either exceeds a preset level.
Natural gas water heaters typically use less energy and cost less to run (by about half) than electric water heaters, although you should note that gas models cost more at the time of purchase.
With a water heater, the most common complaint is that it doesn’t heat water at all. Because a gas water heater operates much differently than an electric water heater, dealing with a water heater that doesn’t work at all will depend on whether it is gas or electric. (A gas water heater has a burner at the bottom and a flue at the top; an electric one is powered by a large electrical hookup.)
When an electric water heater fails to heat water properly, either the power to the water heater has been interrupted or there is a problem with the controls or heating elements
With most water heater problems the main source is your water is not producing hot water. Whether you have a gas or electric water not having hot water is a major issue. Since these water heaters are different mechanically you should consult a professional 1st. To troubleshoot a gas water heater check the burner at the bottom and see if it is lit. With an electric water heater check to see if the breaker hasn’t blown. If it's not the breaker then you might have larger issues. When your electric water heater fails to make water hot, here are the two problems.
Noises coming from a water heater can be caused by expanding and contracting metal parts; drips; or, more likely, minerals and hard water scale accumulations inside the tank or on an electric water heater’s heating elements. When heated, dissolved hard water minerals recrystallize and form scale that cakes onto interior surfaces, making the water heater less efficient and more likely to fail
These sounds are caused by the buildup of hard water sediment heating up and exploding inside the tank. You can flush out the tank yourself, although by the time you’re hearing this sound the sediment chunks may be too large to pass through the drain valve.
If water sounds like it is boiling inside the tank, this could indicate overheating and a dangerous pressure buildup. Call a service professional immediately.
Choosing, buying and installing your new water heater with us is a simple process. Our Hot Water Technicians will help you with all your water heater needs. From helping to make the right water heater choice for your home right through to your payment options and aftercare; they will make the process as easy as possible.
Water heaters can fall into disrepair for any number of reasons. Sediment deposits can form at the bottom of your tank causing popping sounds when the burners ignite. Thermostats can malfunction or fail entirely. A broken dip tube can mix incoming cold water with the outgoing hot water. Uncontrolled thermal expansion can cause dangerous pressure levels and burst pipes. These and other less common problems can result in a loss of hot water, excessively hot water, or plumbing damage.
Water heater repair is a job best left to the professionals, but be sure to take an active role when deciding whether to have your water heating system repaired or replaced.
Water Heater Problems can be discovered during routine maintenance tune-ups.
For all these common issues, our professionally qualified, Water Heater Service Technician can promptly analyze the problem area and implement the necessary repairs.
