Water Heating Repair FAQs

A water heater tune-up includes a check on every part of your water heater that could be causing it to use more energy to heat less water. During a tune-up, we will:

  • Assess the safety relief valve
  • Test the emergency shutoff valve
  • Test the water temperature
  • Clean the burner assembly
  • Clean the intake filters
  • Test the power supply
  • Test the emergency gas shutoff valve
  • Test the flue draft
  • Inspect the flue piping
  • Test the water pressure
  • Check for leaks and corrosion
  • Test the electric elements

This process will ensure that your water heater is working to its maximum potential.

Yes! Tankless water heater installation is wise for homeowners because tankless water heater repair is minimal. An adequately maintained tankless water heater can last for up to twenty years. If you suspect that your water isn’t heating correctly from your tankless water heater, call us for a free estimate! We are factory trained on some models and perform tankless water heater repair on most major brands.

A water heater tune-up or repair may require that the tank have several gallons drained to get rid of the sediment in the bottom of the tank. If there is sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank, the water won’t heat as efficiently. Partly draining the tank removes some of the sediment. We may also recommend insulation around the tank if it is older and doesn’t need to be replaced. This step will also improve the efficiency of the way the hot water tank heats water and keeps it at the right temperature.

There are several signs indicating a potential issue with your water heater. Look out for rusty or discolored water, strange noises coming from the unit, insufficient hot water, or leaks around the tank. If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s advisable to seek professional water heater repair services.

The duration of water heater repair depends on the specific problem and its complexity. In general, minor repairs can be completed within a few hours, while more extensive repairs may take longer. A professional technician will assess the situation and provide you with an estimated timeline during the initial evaluation.

It is not recommended to attempt water heater repairs on your own unless you have the necessary knowledge and experience. Water heaters involve complex systems and potentially hazardous components. Improper repairs can lead to further damage, safety risks, and voiding of warranties. It’s best to leave the repairs to trained professionals for safety and optimal results.

Several factors influence the cost of water heater repair. These include the type of repair needed, the extent of the damage, the brand and model of the water heater, and the local market rates. It’s recommended to request a detailed estimate from a reputable repair service to get a clear understanding of the costs involved.

While many water heater issues can be resolved through repairs, there are situations where replacement may be more cost-effective. If your water heater is nearing the end of its expected lifespan (typically 6-10 years), has frequent breakdowns, or requires extensive repairs that exceed the unit’s value, it may be more prudent to invest in a new, energy-efficient water heater instead.
