Water Heater Repair

Wondering how to test the functionality of your water heater? Concerned you might need water heater repair and wondering how much it costs? There are several issues that could be happening with your water heater, and it's impossible for one website or one article to diagnose them all. However, it's important to understand what could be causing your water heater issues, necessitating a repair. Let's take a closer look:

Electric Water Heater is Slow to Heat or Runs Out of Hot Water Too Quickly

If your electric water heater runs out of hot water, takes forever to make the water hot, or doesn't deliver any hot water at all, the main culprit is generally one or both of the heating elements involved. The good news is that this type of water heater repair is simple and straightforward as well as inexpensive. We can come to you and repair your water heater heating elements by removing the old one and replacing it with a new one so you can enjoy hot water again.

Remember that most water heaters last anywhere from 10-15 years. If yours is getting up there in years, it may be better to replace it than to try and repair it. Fortunately, we can provide you with advice as well as recommendations for a water heater replacement should you need a new water heater installed.

What Else Might Cause the Water Not Getting Hot?

There are several other issues that could cause your water not to heat up in your water heater. Of course, you'll want to be sure that your circuit breaker is on and hasn't tripped accidentally. Also be sure to reset the high temperature cut-off. This may fix the issue, but the fact that it happened to begin with may mean there's an electrical problem involved.

If your heating elements are good to go, there may be an issue with the thermostat or the cut off switch.

What if My Hot Water Tank is Leaking?

Not only is this an emergency problem, it could also be dangerous. There's a lot of power and pressure going into the hot water heater, in addition to a lot of heat. You don't want to try a "do it yourself" repair only to make the problem worse. We understand that having hot water is a priority and hot water heating emergencies like leaks are one of the jobs we prioritize quickly and efficiently. Your safety and the safety of your family is our immediate concern, so if your hot water tank is leading, you'll want to give us a call right away so that we can diagnose and fix the problem.

Is There Anything I Can Do to Prevent Hot Water Heater Problems?

Although they look relatively simple, hot water heaters are quite complex, and they can cause burns or serious injury if you're not careful. That's why any repairs or maintenance should be handled by trained and certified professionals. We recommend having your hot water heater serviced and maintained once a year, and when you call, we can give you a free estimate on having this service performed, so that you can enjoy more worry-free years of service from your hot water heater.

We bought a fixer upper last November, and had West Coast Hydronics & Plumbing do a ton of work for us. They say to never try to do plumbing yourself, and after seeing (and hearing about) the work that Roman and his team did on our home, I couldn't agree more. Save yourself the headache, and hire WCHP to take car of your plumbing needs. They are dependable, and get the job done right-the first time! For those interested in the details: we had them add 1/2 a bathroom, move the laundry hook-up, relocate the main water shut off valve, hook up the double and single bathroom vanity, install 2 toilets, and a new kitchen faucet with a garbage disposal and an ice maker hook up. We are very pleased with the quality of the service and work provided, and will recommend WCHP time and time again.

Roman was masked, polite, and professional. West Coast beat every other price quote and installed the new hot water heater within hours after I contacted them.
