Hot water heater repair, maintenance, and service can be a dangerous job if the proper precautions and necessary measures are not taken seriously.

Common Hot Water Heater Problems
For many homes and businesses, a hot water heater is an essential appliance used every single day. With such heavy use, however, a water heater can be susceptible to a number of things that may compromise its functionality.
For example, hot water heaters take in thousands of gallons of water in the average american home. Consequently, the cold tap water may carry small amounts of sediment, minerals, and other materials that may accumulate over time. If these materials are left in your water heater for too long, they will eventually limit its efficiency, flow rates, and overall integrity. We recommend having a hot water flush performed at least once per year to fully address the issue.
Other indications that your water heater may require maintenance and service are more noticeable. Most notably, if your water heater is leaking or not producing warm water, it is important to contact one of our trained technicians. Not having enough hot water can happen for a number of reasons, so we are also prepared to fully investigate the root cause. Moreover, leaking water could be coming from a number of points, so it is important for us to conduct a thorough inspection of the plumbing or pipes involved with your water heater. Unfortunately, a leaking water heater may need to be replaced. However, we do install water heaters in the event that we cannot repair your existing unit.
Having to install, replace, or service a malfunctioning water heater can be inconvenient. That is why we are here to address any concerns or issues that you may have with professionalism and experience. We strive to offer our customer’s solutions that will ensure long-term functionality for any plumbing and sewer concern.
