Hot Water Heater Repair

Many times, if your water heater isn’t heating like it should, or it’s leaking from the relief valve or overflow pipe, our water heater repair services can get things back to normal. Common water heater repairs include:

  • Valve replacement
  • Replacing the heating element on an electric water heater
  • Replacing the thermostat
  • Replacing the pilot light on a gas water heater
  • Replacing the thermocouple
  • Replacing or installing a water heater expansion tank
  • And more

Many times, a simple water heater repair can get that hot water flowing like it should.

New Hot Water Heater Installation

In general, water heaters will last you about ten years. If your hot water heater is more than ten years old, you may want to think about replacing it. Or, if your water heater is leaking from the bottom, it’s time for a replacement. That’s because a substantial leak from the bottom means the tank is corroding from the inside. There’s no way to repair that.

You may also opt for a new water heater installation if your family has outgrown your existing unit’s capacity, or if you’re looking to save energy. Today’s water heaters are much more energy efficient than water heaters from ten years ago.

Before your new Five Star water heater installation, we’ll ask you a few questions to help make sure you get a new hot water heater that will provide the amount of hot water you need, when you need it. We may ask about the size of your family, if you all bathe at the same time of day, if you have a dishwasher and washing machine, and a few other questions.

Any new water heater installation comes with a six-year manufacturer’s warranty on parts and your satisfaction is guaranteed.We can also install the new lifetime warranty Marathon water heater so that you will never need to worry about your water heater again.

Types of Hot Water Heaters

There are several types of hot water heaters to choose from. Which one you get may depend on your preferences and budget. There is the conventional storage tank water heater, which features a tank that holds a limited number of gallons of water to be heated. This is the most common type of water heater, and most affordable.

Tankless Water Heater (On Demand Hot Water Heater)

The second type of water heater is a tankless water heater. This type of water heater doesn’t have a tank, but instead, has super-heated coils that heat the water as it goes through the coils. A tankless water heater will cost you more upfront than a conventional tank model. If you size it right, a tankless water heater can provide nearly limitless hot water, so the last person to take a shower doesn’t have to worry about lukewarm water. A tankless water heater can be powered by either gas or electricity. Larger tankless water heaters gobble energy, so a gas-powered one will cost you less money to operate.

Gas Water Heater

A standard gas water heater is powered with propane or natural gas. So your home or business must have a gas line to power a gas water heater. Gas powers both conventional storage tank water heaters and tankless water heaters. If you have a gas supply, we can run a line for a gas water heater if you are replacing an electric water heater, or relocating the water heater.

Electric Water Heater

An electric water heater of course runs on electricity. An electric model will have a lower upfront cost than a gas model, but may cost you more in energy bills. Electric water heaters also take longer to heat the water. In addition, they can be susceptible to power outages. The good news is,electric water heaters can be installed in any home or business.
