Water Heater Repair
If you're not scheduling regular water heater maintenance or enjoying the benefits of a Plumbing Home Service Plan from Will Fix It, then you may be more likely to suffer an unplanned water heater outage. There's nothing like the feeling of stepping into the shower first thing in the morning and finding the water is not warming up.
Over time, gas or electric tank water heaters can build up sediment, which needs to be drained periodically. Another tank water heater problem that we often see is when metal or rust begins to appear in the water, indicating an issue with the tank that needs attention. It's possible the anode rod needs replacing.
Repair or Replace?
When is it time for a new water heater vs. repairing your old one? There are many factors that go into this decsision. But at Will Fix It, we recommend that if the repair costs are more than half the cost of installing a new water heater, it makes sense to replace.
Plus, with the new residential water heater efficiency standards, new water heaters will be much more efficient than your old water heater.
Also, if your old water heater had problems meeting your family's water heating needs, you might consider a new high-efficiency tankless water heater. Will Fix It offers the latest in tankless water heating technology, so you'll never run out of hot water again!
