We're experienced in the appropriate repairs for all types of water heaters when necessary:  

Tank Type Water Heaters / Indirect Water Heaters

  • Gas/Electric Tank-style 
  • Indirect Water Heaters 

While most people take hot water for granted, we know there is a certain amount of maintenance. 

Keep the space around your water heater clean
and free of dirt, boxes, paint cans, aerosol cans, household cleaners and trash.

  • It is important to keep the water heater accessible for proper operation and easy maintenance allowing 
    for water heater repairs as needed.
  • Check your water heater occasionally to ensure that the temperature dial has not been accidentally lowered or raised
  • Be sure you don't store sources of flammable vapors in the same area as your water heater (this includes gasoline, heating oils, lighter fluids, propanes, etc.)
  • Keep the top of the water heater clean. The horizontal surface is a collecting place for dust and debris.
  • If you notice water dripping on the water heater from any piping, Contact Us to have the leak repaired

How do you know when it's time for a water heater replacement?

The average life of a tank type water heater is approximately 8-12 years. You know it's time to replace your water heater when

  • You hear a "popping" noise
  • You see a leak near the water heater
  • You run out of hot water sooner than you remember
  • Your hot water has a rusty, dirty appearance

Water heater installations are performed rapidly of course, however we do suggest homeowners be prudent and proactive before the life of a water heater has expired and the water heater is 'past its prime' avoiding an emergency situation in the late evening hours. 

The takeaway: Schedule your water heater replacement before your water heater bursts. 
You'll be glad you did!

Sediment can build up in your water heater over time. It may be time to call your plumbing professional for water heater repairs. 

It may be time for a new water heater installation when you notice:  

  • Hot water is rusty colored or dirty in appearance
  • You may hear a 'popcorn-like' noise.This is a sign of advanced deterioration of the water heater and that the integrity of the glass lining has been breached
  • You  notice that you run out of hot water sooner than in the recent past 
  • Water on the floor near the base of the unit may also be an indication that the water heater is beginning to leak. (Leaks do not seal themselves, they only get worse)

This often means that the water heater is indeed nearing the end of its useful life, that spending money on costly repairs may no longer make sense and your water heater replacement is indicated.
