Common Water Heater Issues
One of the easiest to recognize and inconvenient plumbing issues that grabs a homeowner’s attention is a lack of hot water. This can be caused by a variety of issues with your water heater. A broken or malfunctioning heating element can cause an inconsistent supply or complete lack of hot water. A bad thermostat can also cause variation in the water temperature.If your water heater is electric, a blown fuse or breaker could be the cause of your water temperature issues. On the other hand, if you have a gas water heater, but no hot water, the issue could be a simple as a pilot light that has gone out. Other issues related to a gas water heater include a bad thermocouple or even a faulty valve in the gas line.

We Repair All Water Heater Types!
As we noted above, there are a few different types of water heaters. Conventional water heaters are available in both electric and gas models, but each is very similar and has an insulated tank to store the hot water. The tank on both electric and gas water heaters require regular maintenance to ensure the safety and life expectancy of the unit. Draining and flushing the tank should be done once each year to remove the sediment and build up. This will help to prevent leaks and ensure that the unit provides the 10-12 years of service which is considered to be the average lifespan of a unit.
A tankless water heater, also referred to as an on-demand water heater, can use either natural gas or electric much like the conventional water heater, but it has no tank as the name indicates. These units only heat the water when there is a demand for hot water, such as a shower valve or sink valve being turned on. The benefit of a tankless water heater is that the homeowner will enjoy unlimited hot water, unlike a conventional water heater which can only supply a limited capacity of hot water. Like all traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters should also be descaled once each year to reduce buildup and keep them functioning properly.
Regardless of what type of hot water heater you have in your home, we can fix it! Our water heater experts are well versed in diagnosing and repairing standard gas & electric units as well as their tankless counterparts.
