Water Heater Replace or Repair
When your water heater starts leaking it is time to replace the water heater. Most Water Heaters have a 5 year warranty. If your water heater is less than 5 years old we may can get the water heater company to warranty your water heater. If the water heater has stopped heating and is not leaking we can sometime repair the water heater instead of replacing.
Water Heaters that Stop Heating the Water
When a water heater stops heating the water it could be that the thermostat or the elements have gone bad. We have electronic test meter to see if the thermostat has gone bad and if they need replacing. For more information see our post on water-heater-element-plumbing-repair
Water Heater Supply Line Leaks
When you see a leak by the water heater it is not always the tank itself that has busted. It could be the leak is from a connection, but most of the time it is the tank itself that has busted. For more information on Supply Line leaks see our post water-heater-supply-lines
Water Heater Thermostats
Sometimes the problem is in the Water Heater Thermostat. We can test your thermostat to see if it needs replaced. For more information on water heater thermostats see our post water-heater-thermostats
Why Replacing is Better Than Repairing
When a water heater is older than 5 years old, the tank warranty on the water heater has usually expired. When repairing older water heaters the tank life may be short and replacement soon will be needed. We suggest that older water heater are better replaced than repaired. If the water heater is less than 5 years then it is best to repair.
Water Heater Stands
Gas Water Heaters in the garage need to be on a stand for safety and code compliance. For more information see our post on water-heater-stand.
