Quality Repairs and Flat Rate Prices

As your water heater ages, issues become more frequent and costly. Fortunately, effective water heater repair services can help restore your heater to working condition. Once restored, most units continue operating effectively for years.

If the unit has grown too old for repairs to lengthen its lifespan, water heater replacement may be necessary. No matter what you need, Mr. Rooter® Plumbing is here to address all your commercial water heater issues.

When to Repair a Water Heater

If your building's water heater is under eight years of age, then a repair is probably the right move. Repairs can extend the lifespan of your water heater, allowing you to get as much use from the device as possible. Repairs are often less expensive than replacements and are always a good option when available.

When to Replace a Water Heater

If your building's water heater is eight years or older, it may be time for a replacement. In this case, you'll want an experienced, licensed plumber to handle your water heater replacement.

The following signs may indicate a problem with your water heater:

  • Rust on the tank
  • Noises when the unit is on
  • Water in the collection pan under the tank
  • Rust in your hot water

Common Types of Water Heaters

The newest water heaters come in three varieties:

  • Conventional — Utilizes a tank of water that is heated using gas or electricity.
  • Tankless — Uses a heat pump to heat water as needed; may reduce costs by 30%.
  • Hybrid — Employs a tank of water that is heated with a heat pump; may reduce costs by 60%.

Don't let your water heater problems go ignored—let Mr. Rooter Plumbing handle the issue with fast repairs or expert installation. Call or request an estimate today.

Water Heater Replacement and Repair FAQs

Which water heater issues can be repaired?

Not every water heater issue requires replacement. Here are a few of the most frequent problems with water heaters that can be resolved through repairs:

  1. 1. Sediment Buildup: Over time, minerals and sediment can accumulate at the bottom of the water heater tank, reducing its efficiency. Draining and flushing the tank can help remove the buildup and restore optimal performance.
  2. Pilot Light Problems: If your water heater's pilot light keeps going out, it may indicate a faulty thermocouple. Replacing this small heat sensor is usually enough to fix the problem.
  3. Minor Leaks: A leaking water heater can indicate a significant problem. For minor leaks, checking and tightening the connections, such as the temperature and pressure relief valve, may resolve the issue.
  4. No Hot Water: It can be frustrating when you turn on the tap and only get cold water. In most cases, a faulty heating element is to blame. Replacing the malfunctioning element can restore hot water to your household.
  5. Inadequate Hot Water Volume: If your water heater does not provide enough hot water to meet your needs, the thermostat or the heating element may be the issue. Adjusting the thermostat or replacing the defective component can often fix it.
  6. Pressure Relief Valve Discharge: An overly active pressure relief valve can indicate high water pressure. Installing a pressure regulator or reducing valve can help regulate the pressure and prevent potential damage to the water heater.
  7. Gas Control Valve Issues: If you have a gas-powered water heater and experience issues with the control valve, such as a constant gas smell or difficulty igniting the pilot light, it is crucial to seek professional assistance. Gas-related repairs should only be handled by qualified professionals to ensure safety.
