Water Heater Repair

Common Water Heater Problems

We can diagnose and repair many water heater problems, including:

  • Draining and cleaning a tank to eliminate microbial odors.
  • Repairing or replacing thermostats and valves.
  • Addressing and repairing problems with the heating element.

Some water heater issues can be solved with a simple repair. If we cannot repair the water heater safely, we can replace it with a newer model or upgrade you to a tankless system, depending on your preferences and budget.

Why Swift Repairs Are Important

If you’re having problems with your water heater, it’s important to call a plumbing repair company right away. Left unchecked, some water heater problems could become dangerous. Some issues include:

  • Built-up pressure from damaged valves, leading to the water tank bursting or exploding.
  • Too-high temperature from a malfunctioning thermostat, leading to scalding.
  • Leaks or bursting leading to flooding and substantial water damage to your home.

The average water heater lasts from 10 to 15 years, and routine maintenance and swift repairs during that time will help to boost the system’s lifespan.
